Catholic politicians and scandal

What is it with politicians who like to describe themselves as Catholics?

Is there even one who is prepared to be anything other than the cause of scandal?

Catholic Culture brings us the news that Stephen Hughes, a freeloading waster at the European parliament, has "offered public criticism" of the Holy Father's comments about Harriet Harman's immoral Equality Bill.

Do you think there is any chance that Mr Hughes' bishop, + Seamus Cunningham, of Hexham and Newcastle, might return from the ad limina visit with enough orthodoxy to enquire of Mr Hughes why he sees fit to cause such grave scandal to the Church?
