As if this election year wasn't depressing enough, we have this from lastampa.it :
"A survey by Pew Research Center reveals that Catholic support for Obama has risen since last June, from 49% to 54%, while Romney is stuck at 39%"
What is wrong with Catholics in this country? In so many area's Obama's policies are diametrically opposed to the teachings of the Church. Obama's views on abortion and same-sex "marriage" are the most obvious but Obama doesn't even believe in the simple notion of subsidiarity , which is one of the basic principles of Catholic social teaching.
Hopefully, before the election more Catholics will heed the words of Bishop Thomas John Paprocki of Springfield, Illinois when he said that voting for a candidate who promotes actions or behaviors that are “intrinsically evil and gravely sinful” makes a voter “morally complicit” and places the eternal salvation of his or her soul in “serious jeopardy.”
Unfortunately, the Republican candidate for POTUS, Mitt Romney isn't the perfect candidate, but he is far and away preferable to the current President.
Even if Obama loses, the number of people in this country who think he's the ideal choice is disturbing. This country is currently in self-destruct mode and I'm not at all certain that this situation can be turned around.
