Survey says…!

Survey says…!

As with the previous article about British priests supporting condom use, we know have a story that says the most Catholics in Connecticut support “morning-after pill” legislation. It’s a good thing that morality and doctrine aren’t determined by polls then. I wish we could also say that we don’t determine laws by polls and surveys, but unfortunately today all too many legislators act by putting their fingers to the wind.

Again, we must ask whether this 74 percent of surveyed Catholics actually knew what the “morning-after” pill is, that it is not contraception, but a form of abortion. We also have to ask how the survey defined “Catholic.” Is it just someone who claims to be Catholic or do they actually have to be someone who attends Mass? Obviously it doesn’t mean someone who holds to the Church’s teachings.

  • “The poll also found that 31 percent of voters and 28 percent of Catholics believe abortion should be legal in all cases..”

    Who are these people anyway? They sure as heck are not coming to evening prayer tonight – maybe I will poll the group.

  • “It’s a good thing that morality and doctrine aren’t determined by polls then.”

    Why do religious folk point to polls to justify their opinion and views? Pontius Pilate conducted a poll concerning what to do with Jesus and the crowd voted to “Crucify him”.
