The charge stems from the fact that Blackwell is co-authoring a book, Rebuilding America, with Jerry Corsi, the co-author of a book with John O’Neill about the swift boat veterans. Corsi once made anti-Catholic jokes on the Internet, and later apologized for doing so. This was sufficient grounds for the Catholic Democratic group to say, “The message from Blackwell to Ohio Catholics is clear. Mainstream and faithful Catholics need not apply.”

Oh my god, is there anyone who won't pull the victim card whenever possible?

That's the absolute LAMEST charge I've ever seen in a political battle. "You're writing a book with someone who made jokes once! You're saying 'Catholics need not apply!'"

Please, PLEASE grow up.

the "Ohio Democratic Catholic Caucus" is a totally catholic-in-name-only organization. These are Kerry catholics. About as Catholic as "Catholics for a Free Choice", the pro-abort group.

They would probably call the Pope anti-Catholic for being against abortion.

Wow...prosecution by affiliation through bad jokes. I have a friend who is NOT pc and has said some disparraging jokes about inner city black people (though I know for a fact he is just joking and isnt racist). I guess I a virtual KKK member?

Well.... I'm not surprised Ohio Democratic Catholic Caucus would stoop so low to label Ken Blackwell "Anti-Catholic".....if anybody is ant-Catholic it would be the liberal-left side of the Democrat Party ....since they give Jews and Blacks a hard time for being conservatives and even make jokes about various Christian groups including Catholics...I should know I'm a 5th generation Californian..and I'm a person of color so most liberals out here assume I'm with them..I'm not so I hear quite a bit... Like mother always told me if don't like a Jew ...you don't like Christians as awhole including Catholics.

I would even go as far as to state ...since the Democrat Party as whole appears to stand with the liberal left...I would further state the party is anti-Catholic and with Congressman Ted Strickland being a phychologist..(by the way majorty of psychologists out here in California tend be known for making fun of Christianity itself out here in California that's why I lot of the bigger churches now have their own phychologist or make personal referals)... and stands with his party then he could appear "Anti-Catholic" even "Anti-Christian" himself if he's not too carefull.

In genral with the remarks made ....Blackwell's record speaks for itself...I'm glad that the President of Catholic League, Bill Dohohue, stated that Blackwell " deserves an immediate apology from those who have slandered him." I know this all could be seen as laughable ...but as a Conservative-Republican born, raised & still in living in California that happens to be a person of color I pray that Blackwell wins the governorship in Ohio so I maybe able to hold my head up proudly and not be ashamed of who I have become...Blackwell to me is someone worth fighting for since we all know where he stands..so in turn I feel royaly pissed and feel Strickland with Howard Dean should be giving the apology to Blackwell personally along with "Sercret Conservative" like myself.

P.S. I'm starting to feel beeter since let out some stream..thank you "you guys" at FR ! If you feel lead send remarks....
