The sad paradox lurking behind this column is the fact that 50% of the Catholics in the recent election voted for Obama and the left-wing juggernaut. So much for Catholic church 'discipline' or 'solidarity'. In contrast, among the professing Evangelical Protestant community, the voter turnout was something like 85% to 15% in favor of Romney (the Black church being the notable exception from that statistic). Kind of hard to take a stand on church 'policy', when 50% of its members don't support it (or consider it important enough to cast a 'no' vote against a candidate that does support it)!

Those who think they are serving God's kingdom by voting for a Marxian/socialist government are simply DECEIVED concerning the Gospel and God's call to INDIVIDUAL accountability

"Catholicism teaches that it is a sin to use, provide, or otherwise support contraception."

These words are not from the Catholic Catechism or a sermon by a Catholic bishop. They are excerpted from the preliminary injunction U.S. District Judge Robert H. Cleland issued last month temporarily stopping the Obama administration from forcing a family-owned outdoor-power-equipment company to comply with an Obamacare regulation that requires virtually all health care plans to provide women (but not men) with co-pay-free coverage for sterilizations, contraceptives and abortion-inducing drugs.

The judge stated the Catholic teaching on contraception as an undisputed fact of the...
