Now maybe Maryjo can rest in peace for what he did to her.

It amazes me how many people forget what a bunch of skirt chasing, booze drinking, communist supporting assholes the kennedys really were.

I like the Beacon's picture of the young Teddy..why not use the fat, booze soaked,insolent,condesending looks he had for this country? It would be more apropos. Its one we can all remember.

Unless you repent of your sins and change how you think about other people, you will never see GOD, my brother. Forgive the sin - love the sinner.

10:54- no thanks I'll go thru life with my eyes open and support the innocents, that are wronged by the people you eulogize. Looking at life thru your rose colored glasses or rose colored liquor bottle must give you comfort. I am a realist and remember all the bad stuff the kennedy's pulled, but were covered up by their political base.

Again, good riddance. I feel more for the innocent aborted souls that he didn't think needed our help and support.

I made my peace, with my god.

What this country needs is a good Civil War to get rid of the traitors who frequent this blog.

It's not south against the north, it's Americans against traitors.

All you who believe in torture, nuking people and trashing the Constitution should rise up so we can see who you are.

Shame on you.

Those of you who are worried about aborted babies should be just a concerned about babies who die without healthcare.

11:18am, You only thought you made peace with GOD, for only if you understood GOD's love for his children, would you know his salvation. Life on this Earth is too short to hate but life in Hell is eternal. GOD's love is unconditional and that is what he wants from you as well. Let GOD be the judge. As a previous blogger wrote, "hate the sin but love the sinner". Hopefully one day you will understand that and see the light, before it's too late.

I pray this man repented of all of his evil deeds before he breathed his last breath.

On August 3,1971 Kennedy wrote "..it is my personal feeling that the legalization of abortion on demand is NOT in accordance with the value which our civilization places on human life. Wanted or unwanted, I believe that human life, even at its earliest stages, has certain rights which must be recognized-the right to be born, the right to love, the right to grow old."

From 1998 to 2008 here is his pro-death record in the US Senate compiled by NARAL, where he had a 100% approval rating:
-Voted NO on banning human cloning Feb.11, 1998
-Voted NO on Partial Birth Abortion Ban, Oct 21, 1999 (where a baby is delivered alive feet first, before the head is delivered, the baby is stabbed in the back of the neck, the brains suctioned out while the baby is kicking and moving, then delivered dead and disposed of)
-Voted NO on keeping the ban against abortion on military bases June 20,2000
-Voted NO again on Partial Birth Abortion Ban March 12, 2003
-Voted NO on the Unborn Victims of Violence Act, which made it a crime to harm a preborn baby during committing a crime March 25 2004
-Voted NO on notifying parents of minors who get out-of-state abortions July 25, 2006
-Sponsored a bill to force ALL hospitals regardless of religious beliefs, to provide emergency contraception to sexual assault victims, Sept. 26, 2006
-Voted YES to expand taxpayer funding of human embryonic experimentation, thwarting Pres. Bush's moratorium April 11, 2007
-Voted NO to increase funding to enforce the Child Custody Protection Act, previously passed in the Senate to stop interstate trafficking of minors for abortion without parental involvement March 13, 2008
-Voted NO on defining an unborn child eligible for SCHIP March 14, 2008.

I am sure that Ted Kennedy wants God be more merciful to him than he was to unborn, innocent babies over the last 20 years.

11:32 the Lord created us in his own image - we don't have to love the sinner any more then he loved the sinners at Sodom...Kennedy was a sorry excuse for human being and today the world is better place because he is removed from being able to inflict his perverted views on our society and culture.

Today while I was at the laundrimat the library across the street lowered its flag, I assume in "respect" for Ol Teddy. As it was being lowered I thought to myself what a sad pittiful nation we have become when we honor a mudering bastard like this. NO wonder we are in the shape we are in. Not good.

Nothing makes the gospel of Jesus Christ more blessed or beautiful than his love for the sinner, even his love for every sinner. Jesus said, "I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance." Are anyone of you without sin? If so, then let you be the one to cast the first stone.
Why do people say they are GOD's children but don't adhere to what Jesus taught? "For no man cometh before the Father but through me."

1:47, because a lot of us who believe in God don't subscribe to the Jesus was the son of God or holy trinity theory.

The idea of feeling sorry for a human piece of debris like that bloated, womanizing, baby murdering, young girl slaughtering is a bit like feelig nsorry for Qusai and Uday Hussein, two scum who showed as much respect for women and children as Ted Kennedy ever did.

Ted Kennedy is dead, and today a rainbow shines over America as one of the greatest threats to her liberty is now gone. May his time is purgatory be spent gasping for air in an air pocket in submerged automobile as the water seeps in.

Some people on this blog need to get back on their meds. May you get the blessings of our father and his forgiveness of others. Since we don't know who makes some of these statements about Ted Kenndey they live their live in with out sin. I'm sure they don't. Do they cheat on their taxes, steal from work and that means taking a pen from work. With all their hatred they will go to purgatory also. May God have mercy on your soul.

Im sure that when Kennedy, knew he was going to die that Like his father before him, paid for his place in heaven. Can you just imagine the look on his face as he approched the gates and is turned away.

What a great man he was, if you believe in all the hype that the news is spreading. With 47 years in his Senete seat you can count on one hand all the bills he sponsered or voted for.

8:38 - you have a lot of nerve. 1st off I do not want mercy, I want judgment for my sins the same way I have judged others. I have lived my life in a way that I am comfortable with and if God doe snot find me suitable to dwell in his kingdom then so be it.

We have free will. Kennedy used his to slaughter the innocent, to destroy the greatest country on earth, tho destroy God's gift of Capitalism, the single greatest force that has produced the highest, most orderly manner of living for people on earth. This country is a paradise, and the likes of Kennedy are destroying it.

Save your pity for yourself, you will need it when the Lord bitch slaps you for having given comfort to the destroyers of innocent life. To support their memory in death is to support there cruel mission in life.

Here's your hero summarized.

Lets not twist the facts to change the real history.
1. He was caught cheating at Harvard when he attended it. He was expelled twice, once for cheating on a test, and once for paying a classmate to cheat for him. 2. While expelled, Kennedy enlisted in the Army, but mistakenly signed up for four years instead of two. Oops! The man can't count to four! His father, Joseph P. Kennedy, former U.S. Ambassador to England (a step
up from bootlegging liquor into the US from Canada during prohibition), pulled the necessary strings to have his enlistment shortened to two years, and to ensure that he served in Europe, not Korea , where a war was raging. No preferential treatment for him! (like he charged that President Bush received). 3. Kennedy was assigned to Paris, never advanced beyond the rank of Private, and returned to Harvard upon being discharged. Imagine a person of his "education" NEVER advancing past the rank of Private!
4. While attending law school at the University of Virginia , he was cited for reckless driving four times, including once when he was clocked driving 90 miles per hour in a residential neighborhood with his headlights off after dark. Yet his Virginia driver's license was never revoked. Coincidentally, he passed the bar exam in 1959. Amazing!
part II to follow:

5. In 1964, he was seriously injured in a plane crash, and hospitalized for several months. Test results done by the hospital at the time he was admitted had shown he was legally intoxicated. The results of those tests remained a "state secret" until in the 1980's when the report was unsealed. Didn't hear about that from the unbiased media,did we? 6. On July 19, 1969, Kennedy attended a party on Chappaquiddick Island in Massachusetts . At about 11:00 PM, he borrowed his chauffeur's keys to his Oldsmobile limousine, and offered to give a ride home to Mary Jo Kopechne, a campaign worker. Leaving the island via an unlit bridge with
no guard rail, Kennedy steered the car off the bridge, flipped, into PoucPond.
7. He swam to shore and walked back to the party, passing several houses and a fire station. Two friends then returned with him to the scene of the accident. According to their later testimony, they told him what he already knew - that he was required by law to immediately report the accident to the authorities. Instead Kennedy made his way to his hotel, called his lawyer, and went to sleep. Kennedy called the police the next morning and by then the wreck had already been discovered. Before dying, Kopechne had scratched at the upholstered floor above her head in the upside-down car.. The Kennedy family began "calling in favors", ensuring that any inquiry would be contained. Her corpse was whisked out-of-state to her family,
before an autopsy could be conducted. Further details are uncertain, but after the accident Kennedy says he repeatedly dove under the water trying to rescue Kopechne and he didn't call police because he was in a state of shock. It is widely assumed Kennedy was drunk, and he held off calling police in hopes that his family could fix the problem
overnight.. Since the accident, Kennedy's "political enemies" have referred to him as the distinguished Senator from Chappaquiddick. He pled guilty to leaving the scene of an accident, and was given a
SUSPENDED SENTENCE OF TWO MONTHS. Kopechne's family received a small payout from the Kennedy's insurance policy, and never sued. There was later an effort to have her body exhumed and autopsied, but her family
successfully fought against this in court, and Kennedy's family paid their attorney's bills... a "token of friendship"?
8. Kennedy has held his Senate seat for more than forty years, but considering his longevity, his accomplishments seem scant. He authored or argued for legislation that ensured a variety of civil rights, increased the minimum wage in 1981, made access to health care easier for the indigent, and funded Meals on Wheels for fixed-income seniors and is widely held as the "standard-bearer for liberalism". In his very first Senate roll, he was the floor manager for the bill that turned U.S. immigration policy upside down and opened the floodgate for immigrants from third world countries. 9. Since that time, he has been the prime instigator and author of every expansion of an increase in immigration, up to and including the latest attempt to grant amnesty to illegal aliens. Not to mention the pious grilling he gave the last two Supreme Court nominees, as if he was the standard bearer for the nation in matters of "what's right". What a pompous ass! 10. He is known around Washington as a public drunk, loud, boisterous and very disrespectful to ladies. JERK is a better description than "great American". "A blonde in every pond" is his motto.
American public forgets what his real legacy is. Let's keep this going for truth, justice and the American way!

Who do you think you are, GOD? Are you without sin? Hardly. You better pray for Ted Kennedy's soul and make sure you ask and repent of your own sins, Mr. High and Almighty. You have no right to stand in judgement of this man or anyone else for that matter. Again, who do you think you are, GOD?

Anonymous said...

1:08 your first problem is you keep trying to ram your limited intellect that demands other accept the existence of God into the form of an argument.

1) The is no proof or evidence that supports the view that God exits - it is an article of faith

2) Ted Kennedy's entire life is a testament to hedonistic debauchery, disregard for the tenets of decency, violation of law, violation of ethical behavior, and sexual deviant.

So what should we give more weight to? A deity who may or may not exist or the concrete evidence tht is beyond conjecture that was ted Kennedy's life? There is no doubt that Ted Kennedy was a despicable human being and a low life.

Anonymous said...

Find fault, you make it sound like you have to look deep. You would need to avoid most of Kennedy;s life in order not to trip of evidence after evidence of his transgressions. The man was total scum. You did not have to find fault, what you have to do is hire experts to ferret out anything Kennedy ever did that was ethical.

What did Teddy say to Mary Jo Kopekne when she asked him what they should do if she was pregnant?

Teddy responds, I guess we will have to cross that bridge when we come to it...

Anonymous said...

5:05 what is hard for people to grasp when their argument is what would Jesus or God think, is that unless you believe in the deity the argument makes no sense and it is illogical for you to assume your words carry any weight when prefaced in the context of God.

By the way, we know what air is and that it exists, it is called science. Science cannot explain everything, but so far, they have found no evidence of God but they have found what the atmosphere is composed of to a very finite degree.

It would make far more sense to you to make a table listing the positive attributes Kennedy may have possessed and balance them against his many transgressions when assessing his character rather than invoking the name of a deity who may or may not exist as the rationale for giving a despicable so called human being a pass for a life of debauchery.

Children will come to GOD not of understanding but by faith alone. There are just those who need hard evidence or I just can't accept that GOD exists.

Can you just imagine the look on those atheists faces when they stand before GOD and receive their judgement is Hell for eternity.

Those people will just have to just pay the ultimate price and what a price to pay only because they needed hard evidence that GOD existed.

There will be no price paid because the event you describe will not occur. I live a life of decency because I am a decent person, I do not need the fear of a superstitious boogeyman to compel me to act with morality.

On the other hand you very words coddle a despicable man who routinely assaulted women in the most vile way, slaughtered innocent life, and murdered a young woman.

Yeah your faith really has marched you down the path of righteousness.

Ted Kennedy in the words of Second City Cop is a POS, I hope he repented for his sin's before he died but feel that he really tried to pay his way into heaven.

To bury this POS in Arlington National with the thousands of American Hero's they must be spinning in their grave.

He is dead (There is a god), lets not make a saint of of him now, Like we did with Michael Jackson.

ted Kennedy and barney Frank are walking around Martha's Vineyard one day when they happen upon a sheep with it head caught in the fencing.

Living a decent life does not just come from living a physical life but also a spiritual one as well. You cannot go on living with hate and anger in your heart. No one can prevent what sins others commit but you can pray for them as well as pray for yourself. It's called forgiveness and redemption, something most people apparently know nothing about. Too many people hearts are too full of hate and revenge because of an injustice. You must let it go and not judge. That is for the Lord to do. You must repent, give thanks, accept the Lord on faith, forgive the sinners and attend Church. It will definately give you peace of mind and happiness. Dwell on the good in life and not the evil. Let not your heart become hardened.

No ones even touched on his letter to the old USSR where he tried to undo all the good things Ronald Reagan did to bring down the Berlin Wall and fight communism. He waqs a frigging traitor!!! Everyone that goes to Arlington should piss on his grave... I guess money can buy anything, even tarnishing the sacred ground of Arlington for another fake, loser Kennedy. In fairness to John at least he fought in the war.

12;30 my heart is only hardened by misguided folks like yourself who give a pass to rapist and murdered because they believe some deity that htey imagine would want them to. the same deity I'll remind you who destroyed those he felt were evil.

What I am trying to get into your bible protected head is you are part of the problem, by refusing to ultimately hold people to account for their transgressions against humanity.

So which God is it, the who killed the people of Sodom or the one who fed his followers fish and bread?

They are both God in terms of your faith. Is one superior to the other or just your preference? And why do you stand in judgment of those who adhere to the old testament? Is that not a judgment?

Form my vantage every one of you who coddles the murderer and gives him comfort is aiding and abetting the murderer spiritually.

Think about that, this filthy degenerate had a wife and children, starts messing around with a young chick and lets her drown because she became an inconvenience.

And some of you dare call this scumbag anything other than the lowest form of scum sucking human debris. Anyone and I mean anyone who think Kennedy deserves anything other than a rot in hell and his memory to be disrespected is a very sick twisted person.

Sen. Ted Kennedy was a tower of morality and strength for his family, an awesome example of how to live one's life of service, unselfishly giving and fighting for what is right for the nation's downtrodden.

Teddy and his wonderful first wife Joan had beautiful children and a hopeful legacy to pass to their descendents and to our country. His second wife Vicki helped him regain his sails and provided a rock of support to him during his final battle.

The Great Senator was a wonderful icon, for his nation, the Catholic Faith, and the world at large. This man should be put on the fast track to Sainthood by Pope Benedict XVI.

Let us not forget Ted's humility and acts of compassion and charity. For instance it is well known he would prowl around the seedier areas of D.C. looking for a guy down on his luck to help feel just a we bit of humanity. Little known to the general populace, Ted used to suck the sweaty balls of homeless men in the alley's of D.C. It is said the natural sweat produced a salt he even preferred to the salt of Margaritas.

What a great humanitarian Ted was.
