Some of these catholic Obama defectors might change their minds as the Bishops' "investigation" of the Girl Scouts gets more press. The initial momentum, then the overstrech and resulting negative bang back of the Tparty and the Susan Koman Foundation management comes to mind. There are a lot of soccer moms involved with the Girl Scouts.

I am not convinced that the actions of these Catholic institutions will drive the voting behavior of Catholics (regular parishoners or lapsed). At least, in any way significantly different than how individual Catholics would vote absent the Church hierarchy's infowar.

I don't think this move will have a meaningful impact on the outcome of the election, & I don't think these Catholic groups actually believe that it will. They are playing their limited political card when (they have calculated) it represents the most political leverage... which is now rather than nearer the election.

Will the Pres blink, or let it blow over to irrelevance?

Are you Catholic? The phrase "regulat pashioner" would indicate that you are not. if that is the case, why should I think your opinion is worth anything? pl

Fox News - LOL. Have they found those WMD's yet?

Pew Reasearch Center once called Fox News unbiased. So much for their credibility. Additionally, the article you linked quoted a supposed Pew report but provided no link to any such report and a quick look around the Pew website found no such report.

The article (and I suppose the mysterious Pew report) was based on supposed research done by something called QEV Analytics. There was a link for this which goes to the TCA website - The Catholic Association. In other words, the bishops commissioned a poll which came up with results that support the bishops and got some flunky at Fox to write a report indicating Catholics turning on Obama. I suggest no one go to Vegas and place any bets on these poll results.

Are you Catholic? There will be a quiz. You and these other ardent secularists are whistling in the dark. Your problem is that you think the Catholic Church and Christiamity are phony and without impact on people's opinions. You are wrong and will learn that. pl

Oh, you mean this? You ARE desperate. So, the bishops have no right to enquire as to what the associations are of a youth organization? You are an anti-Catholic bigot. pl
