Funny...I’m very active in 2 parishes and know, quite literally, 100’s of Catholics in SE VA and I don’t know a single one who’s voting for obama. You’re hanging out with the wrong Catholics.
I have commented here several years about what has been happening in the church and have been called a "basher". Libs have taken the church and the various parishes don't seem to notice.
Just like Biden, Pelosi, Kerry, and any given Kennedy, the church believes a bigger welfare check is "WWJD"? They have sold out abortion, homo marriage, and all the rest to get a gubmint check for everyone.
The biggest argument seems to be are they the majority or not? Many here say EXACTLY what you post. The figures stay the same and grow however. One of Obama's biggest supporters is Father Phlager. He was suspended or something like that for a while, but the church welcomed him back with open arms just in time for the next election.
For the life of me I can't figure why the church doesn't preach from the top down that you can't be Catholic and vote Dem. They have smeared our faces in outright rebellion to God, and yet Catholics still vote Dem. Between Obamacare, abortion, homo marriage, taking God from American culture, and on and on, any Catholic should be able to see the Dems are anti God, yet they still vote Dem because Jesus would have given everyone food stamps and Obama phones. What are they teaching in Parishes all over the US?( for that matter, the world?)
Hugo Chavez thinks he's doing the Lord's work. It's in almost every country.
For me, IMO, it's the church's fault. Someone isn't teaching something that I was taught. I don't think Catholics will ever confront the leadership. We will end up with homosexual marriage, abortion, and all the rest that has torn down other denominations because we think we are somehow immune from what others have done. There is so much resistance to what I am saying, someday we will end up with a liberal pope and we won't even know what happened. Just ask someone from an urban parish what they think of abortion, gay marriage, women priests, ect, and you will wonder how they can call themselves Catholic.
I only “hang out” with the ones i am related to. The others are obvious by their bumper stickers and yard signs.
