Why Did So Many Faithful Catholics Vote for Obama Again?
by Josh Brahm | Washington, DC | LifeNews.com | 2/15/13 5:16 PM
Our favorite (nearly graduated) student from Notre Dame Law John Gerardi is back to help the pro-life community understand why so many faithful Catholics that go to mass every week still voted for President Obama in the 2012 election.
Gerardi explains the history of the Catholic church’s relationship with the Democratic party and the increasingly uncomfortable position many bishops are in since the Democratic party is so openly pro-abortion rights and anti-religious liberty.
Life Report has never been an anti-Catholic show, and that hasn’t changed. Frankly, a lot of Protestants didn’t even vote. But there’s no way to have a frank dialogue about this issue without recognizing that the Catholic church in America has had a long relationship with the Democratic party and that relationship is clearly having an impact on elections that effect the rights of unborn babies. We welcomed the chance to have a Catholic expert on the subject explain what he has learned for the benefit of our audience.
