He actually knows a lot about religion. I went to an Episcopal prep school with Kerry -- he attended Episcopal services daily, and on Sunday he also went, with about 15 other Roman Catholics, to mass in town. Given that it was a German student audience (a pretty secular group), for whom likely some fringe American religions are pretty fringe, it was probably not a bad thing to say. In Germany, the laws are written so that some religions (like Scientology) do not have free speech; in the German context, what Kerry said would resonate in a way that it would not here.
