This is so sad on so many levels. Mainly, how can one call themselves Catholic and yet support such a person who is idiologically opposed to what the church stands for? There are too many Joe Biden Americans out there who are able to seperate their faith in God and give more faith and comfort to mega-leviathan government control. God help us all from those who are so selfish that they care only for their own comfort and immediate self gratification. As President Obama once said about his own children, if they made a mistake and got pregnant he would not want to 'punish' them with having to carry the child to term and give birth. The child is expendable...
If you believe that abortion should be legal in all or most cases, what chance do we have as a nation to make basic moral decisions based on simple human values such as love, compassion, empathy, and the sanctity of all human life. Where are those Americans who can see the basic dignity of all human life? That we were created in the image and likeness of God? Even the little ones who reside in the most dangerous place in America for the unborn - the mother's womb. Unfortunately, we are in the minority. Good night America!
The survey was formally introduced to the public Tuesday by a panel of researchers at the Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C.
“The Catholic vote is highly complex,” according to the survey, which found “strong differences” between the group labeled “traditionalist Catholics,” who believe that the church should preserve its traditional beliefs and practices, and “adaptive Catholics,” those who believe it should adjust or alter traditional beliefs and practices in light of contemporary culture.
“There is no such thing as ‘the Catholic vote,’” said PRRI CEO and report co-author Robert P. Jones.
Despite Obama’s overall lead, white Catholic voters were more likely to prefer Romney (54 percent) over Obama (42 percent).
“There are a number of critical divisions among Catholics, including an important divide between ‘social justice’ and ‘right to life’ Catholics,” Jones said. (RELATED: Group accuses Democrats of being anti-Catholic)
The study showed that a majority of both white Catholics (56 percent) and Catholics overall (53 percent) believe that abortion should be legal in all or most cases.
By contrast, 64 percent of white evangelical protestants and 55 percent of Hispanic Catholics believe that abortion should be illegal in all or most cases.
