The thing that has left me so discouraged is the total lack of any rebuttal by the Catholic Church itself. Oh, there were the few "letters" read at Mass, but, not one word from the Pope on this despicable affront against our Catholic beliefs. Priests at Mass said,"Vote your conscience".
The problem with that is that the American Catholics conscience has been buried in today's hell-bent dive into greed. The most important thing in people's mind today is "Do I have the biggest house in the neighborhood?", or, "Is my car the most expensive among all of my friends?"
I believe that greed is listed in the Bible as one of the seven most deadly sins. Seems to be spreading out over our country pretty well these days.
