Obama Faces Hard Times With Catholic Voters Over Abortion
When Barack Obama won 54 percent of the Catholic vote in the 2008 presidential election, commentators barely noticed that John McCain won a majority of the religiously-active Catholic vote (51 percent to 49 percent). This was a small margin, to be sure, but it doesn't bode well for the 2012 presidential race, after all the worst predictions of Obama's support for abortion became reality.

This is not about catholics or anyone else.
Its about people being stupid and idiotic, whetrher its jews, catholics blacks, liberal whites, etc.
IDIOTS ELECTED OBAMA!
What is the percentage of 'catholics' in elected office versus the 'protesters'. And your initial post wholly neglected any shared responsibility. Because if all the catholics voted against saint Teddy's anointed one then he would have lost.
How the immigration laws should work is a prudential issue, and bishops that have spoken on that are entitled to express their opinions. Such policy statement are not required to be assented to by the faithful. I believe statements have been made both concerning the need to respect the humanity of illegal immigrants as well as the right of a nation to administer immigration laws. I wouldn’t disagree with either point, although I would disagree with any bishop who counsels the flouting of laws or their administration. Such policy matters are completely different from the issue of abortion, which is clearly against Catholic teaching from the beginning. As to your hatefilled sneer about not being “actual saved Christians”, perhaps you might save yourself time and stop wondering, as no one can read another person’s soul.
“What is the percentage of ‘catholics’ in elected office versus the ‘protesters’.”
Irrelevant. People in office did not put Obama in office.
“And your initial post wholly neglected any shared responsibility.”
Because that wasn’t the issue. I was addressing a post that also neglected to mention any shared responsibility.
“Because if all the catholics voted against saint Teddy’s anointed one then he would have lost.”
If all Protestants voted against Obama, then it wouldn’t have mattered one bit who any number of American Catholics voted for or against.
Are you of the camp that claims one’s behavior, life being lived is not an indication of what spirit directs their soul? That ‘sneer’ is straight from the teaching of Paul, if you’re familiar with his letters to the Romans, Corinthians and Galatians.
That is a very good point.
“Ah the Congress is the body that either rejects or fulfills the presidents agenda...”
Irrelevant. My point was about putting Obama in office.
“...and I remember who was instrumental in getting the deathcare bill through Congress... Stupidact comes to mind in his two faced deceit as well as that red queen speaker.”
Again, irrelevant. There would be no Obama agenda in Congress if Protestants had not put Obama in the White House to begin with.
Just because someone carries the "Catholic" moniker doens't mean they are truly Catholic. To prove my point ... Pelosi, Kennedy(s), Kerry, etc.
Of course I am familiar with the writings of St. Paul, one of the apostolic founders of the Catholic Church.
Suppose for arguments sake we accept your flawed premise and agree that 100% of Catholics voted for Obama. That still isn't enough votes to get him elected without plenty of equally culpable Protestants putting politics ahead of religion and core values. Besides, Obama and his core constituents aren't even Catholics, now are they?
I am getting a little weary of this harped up claim resurfacing over and over again. Actual statistics are that when Catholics who are in Communion with the Church and regularly attend Mass are polled it is found that they overwhelmingly vote GOP.
