Oh for crying out loud, when the rumor was that this new Pope kicked out Law, then there was a couple of days about Law with Catholics piling on him, someone that I had never paid attention to before, but I came to accept the general catholic view here and assumed that he had done something wrong.

I never said anything about “a strategy of humiliation and rejection” of Catholic voters, that was about (again) the Catholic claims that this new Pope might humiliate and reject the two representatives of the United States, who also just happen to be our most prominent Catholics and the leaders of the Catholic political party in America.

Catholics have been voting democrat since they came here, and they evidently always will, a day or two of hope has been erased as this thread returns to the usual, for a few hours Catholics here were saying something different about Law, and Biden, and Pelosi, and how this Pope was punishing them and confronting them, then everyone got back in line.

You advocated a strategy of REACHING "the average Catholic voter" via "highly visible cases of public humiliation and rejection." And "massive publicity" to "penetrate into the Catholic rank and file and the immigrants." Is this not holding up disgraced Catholics for them to identify with? Did you not specify a need for "flash and dazzle, some heavy public battles and publicity to reach the average people who don't keep up with much media?" With a purpose to "make them realize they better get with the program?"

My suggestion was a call to something positive, like personal holiness, as a stronger motivator than holding up a pariah. My mistake. Negative narratives don't accommodate positive strategies.

You mean counterfeit Catholics. Any Catholic that follows the teachings of his church does not vote for any democrat.
And the ones that do are spitting in the face of the Catholic Church and not fit to be called Catholic. Illiterate hispanics that vote democrat know as much about the teachings of the church as the average muslim.......nothing.
