Clueless doesn’t even begin to describe it. Liberal Democrats realize that losing the Catholic vote is hurting them at the polls, but instead of changing themselves to appeal to Catholics, they spit on us and tell us it’s raining. The delusion is astounding.
Take this op-ed from The Buffalo News on “healing the Catholic-Democrat divide.” All you need to read is this one sentence:
Aside from abortion and related issues, John Paul’s broad pro-life agenda resonates with the liberal philosophy of the Democratic Party.
“Aside from that, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the play?” Abortion and related issues are precisely the point. Pull them out and the whole tapestry unravels. You cannot have a pro-life agenda if it begins with murdering the unborn.
It’s like standing on the beach in Salem and saying, “If it weren’t for the Atlantic, I’d be standing in Ireland right now.” Well…. yeah, but…
This is why the Democrats, however bad the Republicans are, just are not going to recapture the Catholic vote (or probably any other majority vote) any time soon. Which is really too bad because bad villains make the good guys grow flabby and complacent.[Thanks to Mark Shea for the link.]
