Is it safe to guess that out of that "Majority" of democrats who don't support Israel includes about 90% to 95% of blacks in the dem party? ........................If so it really is not surprising but it is absolutely racist! ................... ................. Israel should really take notice to these numbers and their party base..., Just like Catholics or at least those true in their faith should stand up and take notice to those pretending to be of the catholic faith yet sucking up to democrats for their free contraception, ObamaCare and anytime, anyhow, for any reason abortions.

Yeah, no matter that like 85% of Catholics in America support the use of contraception.

I was raised Catholic, but I was also raised to use my brain, and I don't blindly support out of date policies that don't fit with our sense of morality. I don't think that women should be denied entrance to the priesthood anymore, and I don't think that contraceptives are a bad idea in every circumstance. I think a little preventative care goes a long way--even in the area of family planning and sexual health. And advocating a misguided policy that would further the cycle of poverty in some families, or leave an entire continent powerless against sexually transmitted disease, is wrongheaded.

If you find the Church's policies out of date, you should find a church more to your way of thinking, rather than just violate religious precepts and claim "to use my brain". If you think your sense of morality is on a higher plane than the Church, why stay? It's living a lie.

So fornication is your sense of morality, as is adultery and the Torture by dismemberment of the little inconvenient being that many times causes the selfish hedonists problems. One thing you Demon RATS are fixated on as was proven by your convention, you are sick, lusting
licentious, God hating libertines. Don't you use the name of our Lord and Savior when you deny Him are NO stop using His NAME.

I have. It's called the American Catholic church. Contrary to what Republicans think, there are variances within the Catholic church--some congregations are more orthodox, some more reformed. It doesn't make you less Catholic.

I never said my sense of morality was on a "higher plane" than anything. And it is certainly not "living a lie" to worship God in a Catholic church, but to not blindly accept every part of the church's teachings. That's in fact, often, what has led to reform within the church--those pious members remaining faithful to God but questioning the human institution by which God is administered to the congregants.

Only a Republican would dream of telling someone, "You're not worshiping God correctly!"

Okay, Tea Party Lady, you need to get a grip, and I'm going to give you a hand...

You don't have a monopoly on morality, so let's get that straight. Simply because your sense of superiority tells you that I couldn't be a Christian because my sense of Christianity doesn't line up with yours, doesn't make it the truth. I'm pretty sure any Christian would be comfortable with his belief as long as it is in accordance with his God and his clergy (which mine is, thankfully). So as long as I'm a Catholic in good standing with my congregation, I'm not sure if it matters much to me what others outside of my church feel I should believe.

That being said, I don't believe ANY of what you put in your first sentence, but hyperbole is the right's bed.

A new CNN poll shows only 40 percent of Democrats support Israel's response to Hamas launching repeatedly rockets into their country.

"Although most Americans think the Israeli actions are justified, there are key segments of the public who don't necessarily feel that way," said CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. "Only four in ten Democrats think the Israeli actions in Gaza are justified, compared to 74% of Republicans and 59% of independents. Support for Israel's military action is 13 points higher among men than among women, and 15 points higher among older Americans than among younger Americans."
