I honestly wondered if the average Joe in the Catholic church would ever wake up to the effect their support of liberal policies and politicians. Well, it seems like they have. I asked the question a while back if “Obama had awoken a sleeping giant“, and according to the latest polls, he did!
Catholic constituents have consistently voted democratic over the years, but according to the latest polling numbers, they are abandoning the Obama administration in droves. It is widespread across genders and age groups. In an article I found on CharismaNews, some polls show it as low as 20% in numbers that are supporting Obama.
Here is some excerpts from that story.
Obama Alienates Catholics in Mass Numbers
President Obama is losing support among Catholics. So says a survey from the American Life League (ALL).
Only 27 percent of the Catholics surveyed support Obama. Of those surveyed, 74 percent of Catholic men over the age of 50 do not support Obama, while Obama support among Catholic men under 50 years is only 25 percent. With Catholic women over the age of 50, the president’s support is only 23 percent, with just 31 percent among Catholic women under 50 years.
American Life League speculates that such a dramatic shift may be caused by Obama’s HHS mandates and ensuing legal battle over religious freedom, as 73 percent of Catholics polled believe that the mandates violate their religious freedom.
“One thing is certain: Catholics, like most Americans, feel strongly about their religious rights and are committed to defending their faith. Both church and national leaders should heed this notice.”
The churches and people of faith in the United States of America are mad as heck and we aren’t going to take it anymore. You have shoved your immoral ideas and policies down our throats until our nation is totally a mess. We are done! If you want our support, you better support our faith. We have been kind, lenient, and even gracious to a fault with you. No longer. We are going to demand that you stop intruding in our religious life. We are going to demand that you stop trying to zone us out of the life of our cities and counties, and we are especially going to demand that you respect our religious institutions like marriage, family, and matters of faith. If you don’t do this, then you are going to be left with the small number of malcontents that have been driving your policies for years. You have been warned.
No go and do the right thing!
