What about Catholic loyalty? Wright or wrong?

Ask yourself what you would do if someone asked you to sever a relationship you valued. Ask yourself whether you would disown a community you had come to love. Put yourself in the position of a lifelong Catholic and think about the trauma you had to go through in recent years.
Hillary's numbers are dropping and you can bet she is losing strength amonst Catholic voters. Her interview in Pittsburgh where she rather cavalierly spoke of just up and leaving was hurtful to the very people she is relying upon to hold PA. I am not just throwing this out there to be controversial. I am hearing this from those who value their faith over the actions and words of their representatives. My good friend put it best " I would never go to a UCC Church because I am Catholic, but I would never leave the Catholic Church over words and ideas of my priest. My faith is w/the Church and my faith has been challenged. I don't believe she has faith if she can sound as if that decision would be easy"
I think that to question the action of loyalty to one's faith is particularly insulting to Catholics and really is driving them away from Hillary.
My friend is a fifty-four year old white woman who was all for her, and now she questions why his relationship to Rev Wright is again raised. Not just raised , but put out there by Hillary herself as the wrong decision on the part of Obama to stay loyal to his church. My friend has not yet said she will be voting for Obama, but instead has said she is likely to stay home. She has said she will definitely not be voting for Hillary.
Question even ones persons individual choice to exercise their own faith and you are sure to be suspected of questioning anyones.
