It may be above my pay grade to state this, but real Catholics are not buying Obama’s line on life.
Catholics on FR are better qualified than I am to respond to Obama’s appeal to Catholics.
Like everything else about Obama, even his Catholics are make-pretend.
Ping to you, so easily wooed.....
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:

Everything Obama is for, or believes in, is IMHO contrary to the basic tenets of Christianity in general. And that's because he's a communist.

What a conundrum. On that alone, I don't want to vote for McCain, could bring myself around if he had a true change of heart and mind. No one can talk me into or out of anything.

To my knowledge, the Catholic church is the only Christian religious body that speaks out on this issue with such clarity (at the magisterial level).
