Elevation shows the Catholic/Protestant mix (higher = more Catholics) and colour shows Nazi vote share (more red = higher Nazi share of the vote).
So low and red would mean Protestant Nazi votes; high and green would be Catholic not-Nazi votes.
Excellent insight. Dictating lifestyle and policy to someone isn’t gentler because it’s Christian-based.
Manu Ginobili of the Spurs is an Argentinian of Italian descent, just like our current Pontiff. Also, both San Antonio and Miami are home to millions of hispanic Catholics. The thread was initially about the Pope, and you want to make it about latinos. In my mind that makes it a fair question.
So, Spurs or Heat? I As a long-suffering Pacers fan, I like the Spurs myself.
The Heat celebrated that thug, Trayvon.
Spurs all the way!
I noticed that some did seem to desire that and it seems that you do, but not me, read the thread.
Is it the snazzy uniforms of the cool military salute?
I have read it, that’s why I made my last post.
Post 9 was in response to post 8 that describes situations or history in the Soviet Union, Eastern Europe, Asia and Latin America, Mexico, Africa and the Middle East, China, North Korea, Vietnam, and Cambodia, that I disagreed with and that encompassed my fathers and mine, and my brothers time in the military, and my nations engagement in combat in almost all those areas.
Responding to post 8 made sense, but I think it is right to point out that other posters got way off topic when they tried to get overly involved in Mexican history.
They even avoided the relevant question of which countries were supposed to send their Armys to Mexico, and why, and if Mexico needed to be invaded, then perhaps the many Catholic nations south of it could have invaded, or perhaps the Catholic nations of Spain, or France could have gone to help.
America did its part by taking in hundreds of thousands of refugees from their Catholic nation of Mexico during that period.
A very enlightening and useful map. Thanks for sharing!
Sorry, but it is obvious to me that the one sure way not to go off topic is not to go off topic.
Posts 4 and 8 required response and correction in my view, there is no reason to encourage misleading or false information at FR, especially anti-American information insulting to American veterans and patriots.
Being “off topic” seems to be pretty selective and aimed at one person.
I’m done with this thread.
Pius XII was not the forceful voice that I believe was needed at that grave moment in history.
He should have spent half his speeches condemning Hitler as Cicero condemned Mark Antony 200 years prior. But Pius XII was far more cowardly than Cicero, and too many Catholics make excuses for him.
My father lovingly tagged FDR as "King Franklin The First."
