Posted on 12/04/2012 9:59:04 AM PST by Nachum
The vast majority of faculty and staff members from the nations top Catholic universities donated to President Barack Obamas campaign over Republican nominee Mitt Romneys this cycle, according to a new report. Ninety-one percent of the employees at 23 different Catholic schools gave to Obama, according to Federal Elections Commission data available on OpenSecrets.org and analysed by the conservative college site Campus Reform. Much has been made of Obamas Affordable Care Act mandate requiring employers to provide contraception coverage, a requirement that church officials say conflicts with Catholic religious doctrine,

It’s a SHAME the Catholic church has become a political organization.. What HYPOCRITES, donating to the Anti-Christ. Go figure.
As ye sow, so shall ye reap.
Satan loves nothing better than to infiltrate the church.
It sounds like the Pope and the last Pope are trying to correct this but it does sound like most Catholics are supporting Satan.
funny math....doesn't break down the faith or party of the faculty and staff..all libs at most colleges...
means absolutely nothing
When you read the fine print, you discover that this was ONE person, who gave a whopping $150. Big deal!
What's even stranger is that they list "Thomas Aquinas College" as "100% for Obama" ... and then in the breakdown, they list *zero* donors for Obama, and *zero* donors for Romney.
This thing from “Campus Reform” is making the FR rounds and ante katlickers are taking the bait. Lotsa 8 out dere.
yup. completely agree. the goal of the left is to make the devout give up and stop fighting.
if catholics and christians stop fighting for truth then the left wins. it is worth time and treasure to change the heart of just one.
there are places in this country where the catholic community is alive and well
don’t believe the hype and soldier on
This is not surprising given that there are no Catholic insitutions of higher learning in the United States, save perhaps Ave Maria University located east of Naples, Florida (Novus Ordo) and Most Holy Trinity seminary (Traditional Catholic) in Brooksville, Florida.
The rest of the so-called Catholic schools are completely corrupted as is the American Catholic Church.
Why are you trying to insert facts into this discussion? Don’t you know the Catholic church is evil and is the enemy?
“This thing from Campus Reform is making the FR rounds and ante katlickers are taking the bait. Lotsa 8 out dere.”
Yep, doing Barry’s work for him. Hint, who’s the major enemy of Barry right now? The Catholic church? Why are they trying to cut us off at the knees?
Here’s a lesson, stop doing Barry’s work for him.
I don't know how many times I've seen this but if you want to keep good relations with your Catholic brothers and sisters, you could say, "If Catholics and other Christians....."
(I'm not Catholic.)
of course you are correct it should read and other christians which is what I really meant by it...( and I am catholic) but
I must say...if we are all on the same side so to speak does it really do us any good to argue amongst ourselves over semantics
Obama’s enemies are his political enemies, not the people who vote FOR him, but the people who vote AGAINST him.
So whom do you serve?
When Catholics vote Obama then you can hardly say that they are his biggest enemy, it is clear that his biggest enemy is the Evangelical right wingers, who are the core of his political opposition in America.
Do you oppose or support contraception?
Open your eyes. Obama is at war with God.
the Black Pope and the New Roman Empire....
(1) As FReeper Campion notes, (comment #6), the numbers were pretty darn skewed: At one quite orthodox Catholic institution, the University of Dallas, there was only one (1) donor listed, but the report reads as if UD is 100% for Obama; at another, even more conservative Catholic college, there were NO (zero) political donors, but it was reported at 100% for Obama.
Why do you think it was reported this way? Hmm? Want to hazard a guess?
(2) If you've been reading the religious news even sporadically, you will have noticed that there is a battle royal raging within the Catholic church in America right now, with mutinous, (nominally) "Catholic" institutions in the US on one side, and the actual teachers of the Catholic faith (e.g. the Pope and the bishops) on the other.
If you've decided *against* the Church, you are siding *with* the mutinous insttutions which have effectively left the Faith.
That wouldn't be your intention, would it?
If you're alarmed at people abandoning Catholic truth, it makes no sense to abandon it yourself.
