This can’t be correct because I read yesterday that the church was split evenly and Obama had already been declared the next president. I think that they weren’t even going to let Bush finish his term out, we were going straight to crowning, er, I mean inaugurating the one.
I read of a couple of polls last week showing McCain LEADING among Catholics. I believe the fact that over 100 Bishops have spoken out so forcefully on the Right to Life this year, has caused many Catholics, who had considered voting for Obama, because they've always voted Democrat, to change their minds.
I think the possibility/threat of Obama, Reid, & Pelosi will make up for any lack of excitement for McCain.
