In my 20 years of active duty, I may have know only a handful of Catholics. Only in Germany on the civilian side, did I run into a bunch of them.

    I have no reason to doubt it, perhaps they are all in Europe
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I hear you, it is just I haven't run into very many. I wonder how many protestants there are?

    I wonder how many "good catholics" there are - you know - according to Navy Pride's definition.

    I don't find it hard to believe. My father's side of the family is Catholic, and they're everywhere. They just don't scream up and down about it. During Lent it's pretty obvious though. I live in a town dominated by Baptists, but during Lent, forget trying to get into a seafood restaurant on Friday.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    I have lived in the north and the south and it is a fact there are many more Catholics in the north then in the south........There are states in the NE and East where Catholics outnumber every other religion

    Perhaps Georgia is that way too. But I live out in the country and really haven't paid any attention to religion and who is who.

    I would argue that you vote in a way that agrees with how you interpret catholic doctrine, among other things. That's splitting hairs though. I suspect (based on the ones I know) that the majority of Catholics in the US are influenced to some degree or another by their faith when voting, but it's hardly the only thing that matters to them.

    And I can't see the new pope being too much different than the old one, so I don't see anything really changing much. The Catholic church tends to be extremely conservative and slow to change with the times, and the popes reflect that.

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

    If you add all the protestants faiths together they are probably pretty close to the Catholics.

    So long as it's not the "last" prophesied Pope, I don't give a damn. Religion, to me, is bunk.
