Is This the Guy Who Should Run the Country?

Iowa, Aug. 8, 2007 ( - Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, a contender for the Republican presidential nomination, told reporters on August 7 that Catholic priests should settle the question of whether or not he was a Catholic in good standing.

When questioned whether he considered himself a loyal Catholic, Giuliani declined to respond, saying it was a question that "I prefer to leave to priests." He added that clerics would "have a much better sense of how good a Catholic I am or how bad a Catholic I am."

Giuliani has been legally married three times and divorced twice. His first marriage was annulled by a Church tribunal; his second was not. The New York Republican has also been at odds with Church teaching in his support for legal abortion, gay rights, and stem-cell research.
Hey Rudy - I'll solve the mystery - no you're not in good standing with the Church.

I think that Priest would be a perfect person to give a thought on weather somebody is a good or bad Catholic.

Curt Jester has an excellent parody post re: Rudy's statements. Notice how almost none of the commenters even realized it was a parody it's so believable in today's relativistic society.
