The party of the rich is...the Democrats!

There's one less excuse now for all the Catholics who vote for pro-abortion Democrats. They claim they're "the party of the poor" -- and they're wrong.

On Friday, the Washington Times reported (click on this post's title) on a new Heritage Foundation (yes, I know they're conservative; so what?) study that shows Democrats "represent the majority of the nation's wealthiest congressional districts" and "the vast majority of unabashed conservative House members hail from profoundly middle-class districts."

Somebody invented the term "limousine liberals" years ago, and it applies now more than ever. L.A. is full of them! We all know that.

Catholics who vote for pro-abortion politicians "to help the poor" are phonies. As I've always said, the facts prove that the GOP is all for social spending on a huge scale, just not quite as astronomical as the Democrats would like.

There is absolutely no excuse for a Catholic to vote pro-abortion.

And you don't help poor people by killing their babies, you know.

First off, Quinto, you don't have the guts to let this post past moderation.

Secondly, when are you hypocrites going to quit attacking democratic candidates for espousing democratic party principles?

Anyone who gives any money to any "catholic" church, any where, is an enabler. You're paying the church to hire "priests" to molest kids. If Kerry voting for abortion is guilty of mortal sin, how much more culpable are those who pay for priests to molest children?

Not a comfortable subject, eh?

It's easier to point fingers at someone else. But the facts remain - if Kerry was paying to keep some abortionist in hearth and home, you'd be howling that he wasn't really a true Catholic. And yet you hypocrites continue to give Judas his 30 pieces of silver!

Your diocese takes a 15% cut of every penny you give to your local church - what percentage does the Vatican get? If the "pope" was feeling the hit, you better believe Mahoney would be out of there. But he's not, so Mahoney's not and you pay to keep them in place.

I'll believe the catholic church is serious about saving souls when it gets rid of Mahoney - and any pope who keeps him in his job.

Dear Anonymous 11:47 p.m.,

First off, when you say, "attacking democratic candidates for espousing democratic party principles," you have to include aborting millions of God's little babies as a "democratic party principle."

Second, remember that it is a law of the Church that we Catholics need to support our parishes.

One way to support a parish is to contribute to one of its restricted funds, which stay entirely in the parish without any cut going to archdiocesan h.q.

They vary parish by parish, and perhaps some parishes don't have any -- but typical restricted funds include the sanctuary fund and the building fund.

So unless you do not trust your parish, you can fulfill your obligation by earmarking your donations to a restricted fund -- and without funding "downtown" projects or situations you do not like.

The Catholic Church, which Jesus founded, is always going to be serious about saving souls, and the presence of one or more ordinaries who, shall we say, might have handled certain situations much, much better is not going to change that.

It helps me to remember that our Church is much wider than any one diocese or even country. I hope that truth will help you, too.

God bless!
