The Catholics, all in all, are not very conservative. Even their Bishops tend to be progressives and agitate for leftist projects. That’s why even Santorum was pro-Union and partial for moderation, at least before this last election cycle. The number of conservative Catholics is very low, and Catholics aren’t that big of a majority in the country either, especially when you consider that many are just Catholics in name only and don’t participate in their own Church services.

Yeah, right. Maybe where you are.
There is every flavor in every religion but take a good look at the Pro-life movement. Those Catholics aren’t libs.
Catholics came out in droves to fight the HHS mandate. Just because you don’t see it on the news doesn’t mean it isn’t there.

I think Salvation has a list of Bishops who came out against Obama LONG before he personally affected Catholics.

As for, Catholics aren’t that big of a majority, according to the census our of
[In thousands (175,440 represents 175,440,000).

And, they are a target rich environment for the Elders that pound on their doors.
