From the Boston Herald, Kerry: Don't tell me what God wants
, he had the following to say:
"I am sick and tired of a bunch of people trying to tell me that God wants a bunch of conservative judges on the court and that's why we have to change the rules of the United States Senate.
"I am sick and tired of (them saying) they somehow have a better understanding of Christianity, of the Judeo-Christian ethic, of values. We're talking about values? You show me where in the New Testament Jesus ever talked about the value of having taxes and taking money from poor people to give to the rich people in this country."
The Catholic church he grew up with "was a church of universality and understanding and true freedom of conscience" and that there was never this kind of "imposition of values" into politics.
