Yet more evidence that the alternative Catholic voting guide that isn’t a “litmus test” but supposedly a guide for the well-formed conscience is just a liberal Democrat project aimed at getting back the Catholic vote: The head of the project was John Kerry’s former religion advisor during the 2004 presidential campaign.
An attempt to recapture the Catholic vote has been launched by Democratic supporters. A new 2006 Voter Guide has been put out by “Catholic in Alliance for the Common Good” (CACG) a group headed up by Alexia Kelley who in 2004 worked as a religion advisor to John Kerry in the closing weeks of his campaign.
It’s ironic and telling that the way the Democrats want to re-capture the Catholic vote they held for so long is not to change their platform to make it more compatible with Catholic belief, but to convince Catholics that they don’t have to abide by that belief in good conscience.
