Which protestant church has stood as steadfastly for life as the Catholic Church? Which protestant church has not capitulated on gay marriage, contraception, abortion, etc....?

The Pentecostals, for one.

The Church, whether or not it has a “label” (Roman Catholic, Baptist, Assembly of God, Lutheran, Orthodox, et al), stands against the tide. It is an institution that is universal; it is a body of believers and followers of the Way of Jesus. It is not to be divided up into merely geographical or cultural groupings. That is why, I believe, that the brother mentioned that the Holy Spirit leads believers against the wickedness of the world. It is definitely true that the Roman Catholic Church has maintained a consistent stance that is pro-life; however, it does not mean that other believers cannot do the same with constancy.

At the end of the day, even the Roman Catholic Church could be led astray by an imposter who would cast aside this cherished principle. At that point in time, if it were to happen, the individual believer would have to decide what the Holy Spirit, in light of Scripture, says about the sanctity of life. And, that decision is a no-brainer for the follower of Christ; LIFE is from God, and we value it above any challenging philosophy.

Which Catholic church has not predictably voted for and self-identified with Democrat candidates?

We know that the members of the Catholic denomination vote for abortion and gay power in almost every election, and that the members of the second largest denomination, the Southern Baptists, vote about 80% pro-life and anti-gay power.

We know that while the Catholic voters are almost always choosing the pro-abortion democrat, Clinton, Al Gore, Obama, that the democrats have only won the Protestant vote 3 times, 2 of those in the 1930s and the last in 1964.

If you want a church that produces pro-life and marriage supporters, the Catholic church isn’t it.
