It's indeed sickening, and the reason "why" is very clear: Catholics voted for Obama, by exactly the same percentages as American voters voted for Obama, because they vote by their Zip-code, not by their faith.
When I say this, I mean that "Zip code" is a far more accurate predictor of how people will vote, than church affiliation. And this is because it pretty much sorts people by neighborhood, which means by income, education, and all-over "culture". Local mid-set. And that's how voters vote.
“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds.” It’s not happening for a lot of Christians. People are in their little class enclaves, and it’s hard to break out. My ministry leader just had another of her blowups about the Charismatics (who seem to bother nobody but her), when we have leaders in the parish who proudly support Infanticide Obama, President Punished-with-a-baby.
Suggested by your tagline:
“One of these days, I’m gonna climb that mountain ... walk up there, among them clouds. Where the cotton’s high, and the corn’s a growin’, and there ain’t ... no fields to plow.”
