I’ve got 2 words that will negate this BS article: homosexuality and abortion.
Well, even "Mainline Protestants" are no monolithic voting block. I'm LCMS Lutheran and far more conservative than some ELCA "brothers". But much of this has to do with church hierarchy and not the flocks they oversee. I know a good number of ELCA Lutherans as conservative as I. They go to church for communion with God; not for political indoctrination. But I left the ELCA simply because I'm intolerant of such political incursion into my religious beliefs.
“Mainline Protestant” where I come from equals (more than likely) old dead churches. But not necessarily. I know. I belong to one.
If Roman Catholics listen to our Pope, they won’t be voting for Obama.

“As far as the Catholic Church is concerned, the principal focus of her interventions in the public arena is the protection and promotion of the dignity of the person, and she is thereby consciously drawing particular attention to principles which are not negotiable. Among these the following emerge clearly today: the protection of life in all its stages, from the first moment of conception until natural death; recognition and promotion of the natural structure of the family as a union between one man and one woman based on marriage ; and the protection of the rights of parents to educate their children.”
And as Father Corapi said on EWTN over the weekend, those Catholic politicians who have voted for abortion should have been excommunicated.
And the only “poll” that matters comes 11/4.
“Mainline Protestants” are composed of churches that are liberal to begin with.
**Roman Catholics, who have been traditionally associated with the Democratic Party, are now split evenly between the two parties. There are also party identification gaps between Latino and non-Latino Catholics. Among Latino Catholics, 57 percent tend to be Democrats, while only 15 percent tend to be Republicans. Among non-Latino Catholics, the gap is much narrower. 41 percent tend to be Democrats, while 38 percent tend to be Republicans**
Any Catholic who votes for a dimocrat who supports any kind of abortion is committing a grave sin. They are basically excommunicating themselves. They need to vote pro-life.
**the [Evangelical] group does not appear to be abandoning McCain: 57 percent of Evangelicals support McCain. However, their support for McCain does not match the levels President George W. Bush had during the 2004 election.**
57% of Latino Catholics favor the Democrats? I’m surprised it’s so low. Latinos in general tend to be socialists (”Take care of me, Big Brother!”). I’d have thought the number would be closer to 75%.
How Christians can vote for the party that ridicules them and their beliefs, and is the party of atheists and muslim apologists, is beyond me. It’s like chickens voting for Col. Sanders.
The REAL UNTOLD STORY IS THE STORY OF OBAMA’S EXTREMIST POSITIONS ON ABORTION, ETC.
How many Christians really know the extremism of obama on the issue. Obama is an anti-baby extremist who voted against outlawing a form of infanticide!
