    So you would never support a candidate that favors Capital Punishment, is that correct NP? Afterall...if you vote for such a candidate you are voting against the teachings of the catholic church and are therefore not a good Catholic. Its what we call a "Cafeteria Catholic".

    True, but very few of them vote exactly in line with catholic ideals, and fewer still would probably change how they vote based on who the pope is.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    No, actually, this isn't so. I'm not a theologian, and my understanding may be a little unsophisticated. But I at least had the good sense to Google before embarrassing myself with such an ignorant claim:

    Religion and capital punishment - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The Catholic Church is adamantly opposed to Capital Punishment. I wouldn't rely on Wikipedia as your source. They are often wrong.

    You can never find a candidate with whom you agree 100% with so you try to find one that is closest to your beliefs....I know you on the left wing side blindly vote for any candidate that is running. Obama is a perfect example of that......... we Conservatives look at it differently.

    The Catholic Church opposes the death penalty in nearly all cases, and Pope John Paul II often spoke out against capital punishment. Read Catholic teaching, personal stories and a prayer to end the death penalty

    You are exposing yourself as a hypocrite again....what is good for the goose is good for the gander. You cannot condemn another person for voting for someone who's views might run counter to the Catholic church...while doing the same yourself.
