Catholics for Obama

Dear EditorParsing out the 2012 Presidential vote, it appears that overall Catholics sided with Obama by approximately 2 percentage points. However, Catholics that attend Mass every week voted strongly against Obama. What does this mean? Obviously the farther Catholics get from attending Mass (and their faith), the farther away from the crucial issues they get. Did they not know of the Obama assault against religious freedom? Have these Catholics that attend Mass twice a year not educated themselves about Obama's HHS mandate forcing religious institutions to supply birth control? Just another reminder that when Obama was in the Illinois state Senate he voted to deny basic Constitutional protections for babies born alive from an abortion -- not once, but four times! Frankly, no good Catholic with a conscience could have ever voted for President Obama (some of you voted for him twice!). Shame on 52% of you. Carl Vesper Downey
