You are anti-Christian, trying to convert people to Mormonism?

No. You're smart enough to realize I was making the point that religions are not to be judged by the voting patterns of their self-identified members.

You don’t do politics, track voting patterns, groups, inroads into the Hispanic vote, or the Catholic vote, or which candidate may hurt us with the Evangelical vote, or the female vote, or who may hurt us down ticket, will we get the military vote, etc?

Yes. I'm also smart enough to realize that you often try to present the data in ways that make Catholics look as bad as possible. Look, you're not one of the unhinged and crazy anti-Catholics. But even though your anti-Catholicism is subtler than theirs, it doesn't mean it's still not obvious.

Don’t confuse a conservative activist who wants to win elections with being anti-Catholic.

I think that breaking through this wall of pretense and group think, and chauvinistic pride of conservative Catholics, when they take on any effort to openly discuss or even mention, the voting of 22%, or 4% of our population, or whatever the new claim ends up being as the other posters figure out what a Catholic is, is vital.

Until conservative Catholics know and acknowledge how their fellow Catholics vote, then it is sure hard for the conservative movement to conquer the Catholic voter. We need some help here.

We can’t figure out how to fix it, until people know it is broken, even here many people have been misled to think that the Catholic vote is a conservative, pro-life, anti-gay agenda vote, Republicans won’t learn differently if we don’t tell them the truth.
