The Deacon's Bench

A little more news, following last week’s post.

The e-mail below, sent to Florida writer Eric Giunta, comes from the senator-elect’s campaign.  Giunta wrote to the campaign, looking for an explanation.  Below is part of what they wrote back. (But read the whole context here.)


Thank you for your recent e-mail. I appreciate your interest in Senator-elect Rubio’s religion. However, I do not have any new information to convey to you; Mr. Rubio is still a Roman Catholic. He was baptized, confirmed and married in the Roman Catholic Church. If you find that there is a dearth of pertinent material to write about, perhaps you can focus on the many serious issues facing our nation, and the reasons why the citizens of Florida overwhelmingly elected Mr. Rubio as their next United States Senator.

Um. Right. Move along. Nothing to see here, folks. Keep walking…
