Outrageous Statement of the Day

Sen. Bob Casey Jr. (D-Pa.), who is Catholic, twice declined to say whether presidential adviser Harry Knox should resign for claiming that the Pope is "hurting people in the name of Jesus" because he opposes condom use as an apparent means to curtail HIV/AIDS in Africa. See the video below.

  1. In all fairness, I think this is a respectable position to take. Not make definitive and strong statements on things you have not heard of or researched in depth. Now from this point on Mr. Casey should be held culpable, and you really have to wonder how as a Catholic he heard nothing of this, but I'd give him at least one benefit of the doubt, in particular when at issue is saying someone should be fired.
