It is time to distinguish GOP fanatics who happen to be Catholics vs Catholic fanatics. They make it appear Catholics is only about abortion and gay marriage and simplify that issue.
Catholic fanatics are not political---they are fanatics for Christ. They dont deal with isolated issues like gay marriage or abortion.
They pray a lot,go to mass everyday,life revolving around Church, go to retreats, pray rosary often, go to missions, charity etc.
Media has allowed GOP fanatics who are Catholics to speak as if they are speaking for the Catholic Church.
Have they once ask what GOP thinks about the Matthew 25 bible passage on Whatever you do to the least of my bretheren you do to me? That I think embodies more the Catholic Church than anything else.
I dont mind a conservative slant---but deliberate lying and distortion and repeating it every minute every day.
I didnt think reasonable people believe them.
But when my really intelligent IT coworkers from a very blue state and very blue county is repeating the same FOX lies and really very scared of a Obama win and thinking Obama will be a socialist who will change life in America to akin to a Soviet state believes this---then I say something must be done with FOX.
I say we need to call their advertisers -because what they are doing is not good for America and Democracy.
Because they are putting Obama's life in danger by getting people riled up and fearful. I blame McCain too.
This is really bad.
I hope Republican leaders, institutions, Church should speak up about this.
