So, are they making the case that supporting the Democratic Party is a mortal sin?
And this surprises you?
I know this is going to sound petty, but I wish they hadn't put "serious" in the title, as if only the holiest of Catholics need concern themselves with these issues.
My wife and I are considering supplying them to our pastor for distribution inside the bulletins and also to the school for the communication envelope. We know from experience we'd only need about 1200. There's some overlap, of course, as most of the families in the school attend the Church, but we figure if some families get two it will increase their visibity on the sea of papers on their dining room tables.
There was a very upsetting trend last election when lots of active parishoners supported pro-abortion Ed Rendell for governor. Perhaps this booklet will at least make them less conspicuous supporters.

Not really. I was just being cheeky. ;->
Although, it does raise an interesting point. Can one seriously argue that they belong to the Demoncratic Party because they are trying to reform it from the inside? Alternatively, once any Party crosses a "non-negotiable" moral line, can any moral person belong remain a member of that party, even if only registering with that party's affiliation?
...I wish they hadn't put "serious" in the title...
That did strike me as a little odd. I suppose that there's a bit of a challenge to "non-serious" Catholics in it.
