Don't kid yourself, the most Catholic in the world, Poland, is not acting Catholic when it refers to birth control: 1.2 per family, instead of 2.1 as they need to continue as a race. People are not the old Catholics anymore, not the young and informed one. We need Obama if there is any glimmer of hope for the USA and the World. --scary that nuclear stuff. When are we going to start global discussion on the abolition of all nukes before they destroy mankind. When one studies how they stumbled into WWI (Yes, One)that is how one day they stumble into nuclear war if we do not take up Bertrand Russel's fight to abolish nukes. ww

It's true the Catholic vote is no longer monolithic, but what the media considers to be "Catholic" and even what some "Catholics" consider to be Catholic can mean different things to different people. For example, John Kerry (pro-choice, pro-gay marriage) considers himself a "Catholic" though most American Catholic bishops in line with Rome declined to support him, and some refused him the sacraments. He lost the Catholic vote to George W. Bush (a Methodist) in 2004. McCain has done well with Catholics in the primary states, and has a good Catholic outreach program under the direction of Sen. Sam Brownback and former Oklahoma Gov. Frank Keating.
