Kerry Meets Steubenville

  /   Monday September 13, 2004  

Last night, after hearing a great talk at Frassati Society, we brought up this little gem. For some strange reason, John Kerry decided he’d show up in Steubenville, Ohio on Saturday, September 4 to campaign. Needless to say, he got his due. There were at least 500 people there booing the living daylights out of him.

I can’t help but wonder what he was thinking. One friend of mine suggested that he probably wasn’t thinking at all. Something did occur to me later. As far as I can tell, neither Steubenville nor the orthodox Franciscan University are well-known outside of orthodox Catholic circles. I hadn’t heard of it until 1999, eight years after I became Catholic. Given that Kerry far from an orthodox Catholic (Well, actually, it would be a stretch to call him Catholic at all.), it isn’t inconceivable that he didn’t know about Franciscan University. I guess he knows now.
