If you were politically conscious in the 1970s, you may.
It's the man who introduced a resolution for the impeachement against Richard Nixon.
But how could a priest do that? Don't you have to be a member of the House of Representatives to introduce a resolution for impeachment?
Well, this man is a priest and was--at the time--a member of the House of Representatives.
He was a Democratic representative from Massachusetts, a Jesuit, and his name is Fr. Robert Drinan.
He was also vocally anti-war and vocally pro-abortion--at least in terms of the legality of abortion (he claimed to be privately opposed to it with one of those "personally opposed but . . . " rationalizations of babykilling).
And Drinan's disgraceful performance is one of the reasons that, when the 1983 Code of Canon Law was released, it was made absolutely clear that priests are not to hold such offices. Already, under the 1917 Code, there were severe limitations on what kind of political offices priests could hold, and the Drinan scandal was so shocking that John Paul II took steps to get him out of office (Drinan eventually complied by not running for re-election to a fifth term) and to ensure that in the future priests would not follow in his footsteps. Thus the current Code of Canon Law provides:
Canon 285 §3
Clerics are forbidden to assume public offices which entail a participation in the exercise of civil power.
PREDICTION: This dog won't hunt. The Holy See will become involved in the question and order the Canadian priest not to hold elective office if he doesn't back off on his own.
