Really? Being a conservative Catholic most Catholics I know did not vote for Obama. But we do have a lot of liberal Catholics for whom abortion is no big deal such as Catholics for Freechoice. Most of those don’t even like the church, they want to make it into their own image.
On Tuesday, Catholics, who accounted for about a quarter of the electorate, supported Obama, at 54 percent, over McCain, at 45 percent.
If the pro-life issue was so important to Catholics I would expect the percentage to a lot lower. But, according that article he actually won a majority of Catholic voters.
I still say if you asked most of those that voted for him they say they, personally, would be against abortion but that apparently did not stop them from voting for a man who is FOR late term abortion.
