Even though I fathered seven children I am not Catholic except on Monday nights when I play bingo at the Catholic Church in Zwolle Louisiana.
This week the only news you can find concerns “Emperor” Obama and the fight he picked with the Church about birth control pills having to be free for every American. Next I expect his Excellency to require that every American must take the pills whether they want to or be fined or imprisoned if a child is born.
Obviously my religious beliefs did not influence birth control either, but for a true Catholic, this is a slap in the face and a removal of their Constitutional rights. As I was not totally aware of how Catholics vote I did some heavy reading.
I found an article on the Internet, by James Carroll that was interesting. This was published on www.crosscurrents.org; let me share a direct quote. “In the nostalgic utterances of cradle Catholics you encounter devotion to family, church and the Democratic party.”
This sounds exactly like the same description I have read about the Jewish Religion in America. The two basic differences I find between the two is, one group is usually made up of predominately poorer people as it is the primary religion of the masses of aliens in America today. You never read about desperate conditions for Jewish Americans. That said let me share some scenarios facing Catholics in America.
First, in most of America, the lower end of the labor force flipping burgers, manual laborers, household help, etc are aliens, legal and illegal. They have replaced the previous poor people who used to have to work, that are now on welfare. I was fortunate enough in my work life and personal life to spend some of the most memorable times I enjoyed in Mexico. I have watched over the past several years, the struggle these fine people have fought to establish a middle class without success. The Mexican people I worked with directly were harder working than any place I ever worked. This includes the 32 countries and 49 American states I worked in.
We are bombarded with how these people are draining our education and healthcare programs, which is a fact. What we don’t read is they at least work or try to work for their living instead of sitting on their butt and drawing welfare.
My second scenario will be the voting dilemma on Catholic voting patterns. Remember these are some of the poorest people in America. Suppose you are a devout Catholic and believe in the Church’s birth control position. You also suffer, in some cases, the resentment of being in a foreign land. You do everything possible to feed your family and pray for help, while you watch other people get help by just voting to get the Democrats elected.
If your children were hungry, needed medical service, and you are barely surviving, would you really give a hoot and support any Catholic position politically? You would revise the order of priotities to family, the Democratic Party then the Church
Unless you are a moron it is obvious that if Obama continues to bankrupt America the poor will get poorer as his Utopian promises are hogwash. Unfortunately the masses on welfare coupled with our bloated democratic government employees, Socialist Progressives and the voting dead in blue states will prevail. The real sad part is watching the Republican Party commit political suicide fighting with itself.
