    It's the facts... look it up.

    Think about it... the only Catholic President-democrat
    The current Catholic Vice President-democrat

    Catholics vote democrat and most are Liberal. The only issue that sway the votes at all in the most of the catholic community is the Abortion/birth control deal.

    If it were not for that EVEN MORE Catholics would vote democrat.

    Also... Jews are on the left, and they believe a lot of the social policies too, but they vote democrat and are liberal in the grand scheme of things.

    the trend is starting to level out a little(Like a growing number of southern Catholics voting republican), but still Catholics are liberals by a majority and have been traditionally for decades.

    On the former, there's some Christian sects that tolerate if not promote birth control options. Go seek them. However, there's a great many religions (including the more populated ones) which are not in favor of birth control.

    On the latter, absolutely this is an issue, one that I hope is rectified.

    Bring on the last Pope. I guess, according to prophesy, the next Pope will be the last.

    I hear it's a combo of Notre Dame getting spanked by Alabama in the national championship game and Manti Teo being catfished.

    Are we ready for a black African Pope? The bookies have Cardinal John Olorunfemi Onaiyekan, from Nigeria ahead.

    Doubt it. There will be an Irish pope before that, then American. And I don't think there will ever be an Irish or American Pope.

    I'm betting on a return to Italians.
