It was likely unintentional that the Nuncio gave Kerry the Blessed Sacrament?
They sent the man an invitation to sit up front and there's a picture of the Nuncio looking Kerry right in the face as he hands Christ to him.
CNS also reported that Archbishop Wuerl shook hands with Senators Kerry and Ted Kennedy as he processed into the church. "During his entrance procession, the archbishop shook hands with Democratic Sens. Edward Kennedy and John Kerry of Massachusetts, seated side by side in the third row along the center aisle," reported CNS.
However, Adkinson also downplayed the significance of the greetings telling LifeSiteNews.com that the Archbishop shook hands with "hundreds of people" as he processed into the church.
Everyone knows that the invitation was sent out by Bishop Weurl himself. He didn't invite people he thought were unworthy of the Blessed Sacrament at a Catholic Mass. For instance he wouldn't invite the head of the Klu Klux Klan or a Nazi movement.
All he had to do was not invite him and there'd be no scandal.
