An excerpt from a recent article: "In both 1996 and 1998, Democrats won the Catholic swing vote. In the presidential election of 1996, Democrats won 54% of the Catholic vote while Republicans received 46%. We believe that in 2000, we will once again earn the Catholic vote because we champion the issues Catholic-Americans are committed to." It astounds me that the Democratic party continues to get the Roman Catholic vote despite the fact that they are for homosexual marriage and abortion. There are some pro-choice Republicans but as a whole they are against it. As a Catholic, which party do you think best reflects your religious views? I know that the Catholic church doesnt take sides politically, but dont you think its about time Teddy Kennedy was excommunicated?
