There is a PRACTICING Catholic vote. That is to say, Catholics who attend Mass regularly and follow the magesterium, or moral teaching authority, of the Church. For these Catholics, abortion is a deal-breaker. They cannot vote for a politician who promises to use the power of the federal government to advance the industrial scale for-profit slaughter of innocents. These folks are permanently alienated from the Democratic Party.
But there is another “Catholic” vote. Folks who were born Catholic but no longer practice or really believe. They may marry or be buried in the Church, but that is about all. Nearly all “Catholic” politicians—the Kennedys, Biden, Pelosi, the Daleys—fall in this category. Today, the Catholic population is about evenly divided between the believers and the lapsed. No person who believes in a Living God who takes an interest in the affairs of humans could endorse today's Democratic party.

......"No person who believes in a Living God who takes an interest in the affairs of humans could endorse today's Democratic party.".......
Do you know any numbers though? Is it about 2/3 Democrat in the church? You have people that accept abortion and homosexual marriage just so they can have a tax hike on the "rich", or the union told me to vote this way. They believe it's more important to have social programs than murdering babies. The way I read the Bible is Jesus wants His church to help the poor. He never said a word about it being the governments job. Murdering the innocent is a touch stone form me. There is no argument, no compromise that can be made here for ANY reason. Obama says he will be a uniter,....I will never unite with a murderer. It's just that simple.
