This is kind of the exclusivity found at the Rotary meeting I described. They are many Democrats who are Catholics. Want to read them out of the faith? There are many Democrats who are denominational Protestants (Methodist, Anglicans), should they be read out of the Christian faith? Many Democrats who are non-denominational. Should they be read out? Certainly, as we know, there are many of the Jewish faith who are Democrats. Should they be read out of the Judeo-Christian faith? Simple truth: Exclusivity leads to permanent political minority status (ask the Goldwaterites and the McGovernites). Inclusivity, without abandoning faith, leads to majorities. A simple political maxim.
