    A better question is, why the hell doesn't it bother you?
    But, if you were right, would it really matter in the grand scheme of things?

I am not one of those people(I am not Catholic any longer) nor my Catholic family... but an argument can be made. Most people think you shouldn't be one-issue voters either. And I don't think it's right declaring who are legit Catholics and who arn't.

    All of this aside... my statements still stand true... most Catholics are liberal lol.

If not just your own life, but the universe and everything in it is ending for all of eternity, does it really matter? You might help future generations, but ultimately I fail to see what purpose there could be without at the very least an eternity for the human race or universe, if not yourself.

    I'll admit I'm not well versed in the differences, I will look into that and get back to you on it.

    No, the GOP will be just fine, what they need to do is get back to basics, and STOP trying to get liberals to like them. They need to see that it is liberal sabotage that has brought them to this point.



    Yeah, if the GOP would move so far to the right that it's in danger of falling off the edge of the evangelical's Flat Earth it will do just fine.

    Try that and get back to me in thirty years and tell me how in worked out.

    Have a nice day.

    The Supreme Court makes the laws that Americans must respect no matter what any church says.

    I can argue against anything that I want to argue against.
