Blacks, Hispanics, and single mothers are a much bigger problem than Catholics.
The role of the Bishops is to save souls not to save the Republican party. Who is the party guilty of committing the abortion sin - mother, doctor, politician, voter?
love this! and i agree... most Catholics i know are Democrat first, Catholic second... and that includes just about every member of my family... :(
i live in an Hispanic city in CT. Even here, not a swing state, only a hot House seat: Obamba got more votes than 08 because he added more to the food stamp rolls, used the federal govt to get 2000 of them registered, and then used the entire apparatus to mobilize them to vote. It was a tidal wave of new voters.
They expanded the electorate by strengthening the progressive infrastructure ... and four more years await for him to fundamentally transform America. They are transforming the electorate. Permanently.
This process will continue as we move toward 2016. There are an endless supply of potential new voters. They come from all over the world to get here.
That's such a perfect summary of the liberal mentality: "The problem is you." All problems are always "you," singular or plural; no problems are ever "me."
In addition to its being pathetic, this attitude is debilitating, because it offers no hope for doing anything about the problem. "The problem is you!" and then the person just sits there, pleased with his own lack of responsibility.
If you say, "The problem is me," the obvious next thought is, "What could I do differently to make an improvement?" and from there, a whole life of conscious agency can grow.
Many Catholics have self-excommunicated themselves and have been turned over to a reprobate mind as St. Paul wrote in his letter to the Romans in Chapter 1. They are now gone.
I talked to a Catholic friend who planned to vote for Obama. I tried numerous times to talk her out of it, but she said even though she wouldn’t have an abortion, she wouldn’t feel right about keeping someone else from getting one, and that God would judge them for what they did. I mentioned adoption as an alternative to abortion because her grandson was adopted as a baby...but that didn’t work either. She’s a faithful Mass goer, but I couldn’t get through.
On the other hand, our pastor spoke fervently and frequently about why we must vote with the party of pro-life, pro-Israel, and anti-gay marriage, and yet there are folks in our church that I know voted for Obama. Their reasoning was not logical, nor Biblical. They were beyond convincing saying Jesus would have stood with the poor, and that was what Obama wanted to do...they didn’t care that the Dems advocated killing babies...just weird and a bit surreal when talking to them.
I work in 4 Catholic schools. I was shocked at how many loved Obama. The schools push Global Warming,amnesty, etc.. The church brings many illegals here, and they are enrolled in the schools. The Catholic Church is trying to grow their population. Sickens me.
It’s always our fault.
8 out of 10 white Protestants voted for Romney...95% of black Protestants voted for Obama...
6 out of 10 White Catholics voted for Romney...75% of Mexican Catholics voted for Obama...
