Catholics took to the streets to protest Obama’s HHS mandate that forced Catholic organizations to fund abortions and birth control (Tom McLaughlin)
They may want to rethink the abortion-palooza they’ve planned for the DNC. Probably gonna bow up in their face. But hey what are they going to talk about? How effective Obama was in destroying thew economy? How many jobs blacks now have? Mexicans, how many food stamps they handed out? Don’t they know, even the illegals want jobs, not handouts?
Looks like Catholics are off the Obama agenda as well — In 2008 Barack Obama carried 54% of the Catholic vote. Today only 27% of Catholics support Obama. There are over 77 million Catholics in the United States.
The American Life League reported:
Between August 15-19 of this year, American Life League commissioned a nationwide telephone survey of 900 self-identified Catholic registered voters. The focus of the survey was Catholic perspectives on the Church and nation. Below are some of the results of the survey.
Only 27 percent of the Catholics surveyed support President Obama. Of those surveyed, 74 percent of Catholic men over the age of 50 do not support Obama, while Obama support among Catholic men under 50 years is only 25 percent. With Catholic women over the age of 50, the president’s support is only 23 percent, with just 31 percent among Catholic women under 50 years.
American Life League speculates that such a dramatic shift may be caused by Obama’s HHS mandates and ensuing legal battle over religious freedom, as 73 percent of Catholics polled believe that the mandates violate their religious freedom.
“This nationwide survey revealed surprising results that should cause our leaders to pause and consider the consequences of their decisions and the impact it has on their constituents. Can Obama’s support among Catholics be dwindling this fast?” said Paul E. Rondeau, ALL executive director. “One thing is certain: Catholics, like most Americans, feel strongly about their religious rights and are committed to defending their faith. Both Church and national leaders should heed this notice.”
This week the Barack Obama Campaign denied Catholic Cardinal Timothy Dolan’s request to say a prayer at the DNC. Godless and lawless, what more can you ask for?
But women. your daddy federal government will make sure you can kill your child. What a loving message that sends.
