Fag nation moves forward.
Latino Catholics supported Obama at a greater clip than Latinos as a whole. Something needs to happen over the next 4 years.
So much for that “at least the wetbacks are Catholics, and therefore Christians” meme.
If they no longer go by the Bible then they are no longer a religion!
Still waiting for the excommunications. Not asleep over in the Vatican, are they . . . ?

Political correctness is simply an American way to lie publicly. There is a huge difference between white and Latino Catholics. While they share a common religious tradition, that is about as far as it goes. They don’t socialize, they don’t live in the same neighborhoods and are economically disparate. To consider that their political behavior to be predictable based on their stated religion is naive. Hispanic “Catholics” are often not really Catholic. While many identify themselves as Catholic, in actuality they are practicing some form of Protestant evangelism with a few Catholic symbols as bells and whistles. There is probably no major voting bloc in the US, that are less affected by their mystical and religious beliefs when it comes to voting.
I hope this helps put the rest the idea that Hispanics/Latinos are an ideologically sympathetic voting bloc to the Conservative side.

Pick up a good history of the Catholic Church (Warren Carroll is a good start) for the first 400 years to get a clear idea of the challenges the Church faced against Her enemies. The Church’s only “strategy” was to proclaim Jesus Christ and his truth. It got a lot of the first Christians killed. The same might have to happen again.
So much for the Latino Zots here on FR.
I’ve had dealings with latino “Catholics” in TX, CO and FL, legal and illegal. Very, very few are Catholics, or any sort of Christian at all. They go to churches for the social service benefits and charity. They rival blacks for abortion, out of wedlock births, dropout rates and crime. They may call themselves Catholic for identity reasons.
As I read the comments on this thread and others I see the same comment that many Hispanic Catholics aren’t “real” Catholics or are “cinos”, Catholics in name only, because they support Democrat politicians. Thus the poster doesn’t recognize them as “Catholic” at all.
But the salient question is whether the Catholic church recognizes these Hispanics as Catholic and the answer is apparently it does no matter what some individual posters say.
It appears that white Catholic, Protestant, and Mormon citizens are squared off against blacks, Hispanics, American Indians, Jews, Asians, and Middle Easterners. Interstate 81 in the Northeast and Middle Atlantic states divides traditional America against the liberals and Americans of non-European descent. Interstate 5 serves as a similar divide on the West Coast, Interstate 10 in Texas, and Interstate 4 in Florida
