Yeah, they want to support Hillary instead, and see another ACLU lawyer elevated to the SCOTUS.

Maybe they actually are acting on their convictions. Maybe they are smart enough to know Hillary will not be the Democrat nominee.

That's such a sad, false argument.

It's not Rudy - vs - Hillary just yet.

I actually saw a really interesting law review article recently -- apparently every single SCOTUS justice appointed since 1935 has drifted ideologically away from how people thought of them when they were appointed. Obviously, people like Souter have drifted more than people like Scalia, but there's still an effect there.

Info like this makes me doubt whether ideology should matter much, if at all, in appointing SCOTUS justices, because we can't predict where they'll end up -- maybe we should just concentrate on qualifications?

You're thinking of the National Catholic Reporter -- very far left.

I keep seeing this crop up on anti-Rudy threads and I'm not sure I understand the 'logic' involved. Has Rudy already clinched the nomination? Is it a fact that if we don't nominate Rudy, we will lose?

I am a Roman Catholic and I refuse to let the Roman Catholic Church or any church for that matter tell me who to vote for president.

Nobody's "telling" anyone to do anything.

From my perspective as an ex-Catholic living in the about most Catholic city in America, this should be of no concern to Rudy. Heck, he still calls himself a catholic, and there is the trouble. I would hazard to guess that upwards of 90% of Catholics are closet protestants in that they don't follow the Catholic doctrine. Not out of ignorance, but out of choice. They feel no need to obey the church, yet they still consider themselves to be catholic.

As a label, "Catholic" is even more meaningless than "Republican".

You leave that to "Democrats and Black Churches", right?

How can the church maintain a tax exempt status if they are telling their members how to vote?

I thought discussion of politics was a no-no.

Maybe Giuliani won't be on the ballot. Perhaps the GOP will perform a partial birth abortion on his candidacy. Guiliani will understand. He knows what happens when someone is not wanted.
