I like it! Whoever put this together did a great job, I think. Even though their target is obviously Catholics, I think it would appeal to others as well. Thanks for posting that, Ben.

Bravo! I'm so glad the Catholic Church is taking a stand. So many are traditionally Democrats; it's had to take a lot of overreaching by the liberals for the church to stress this strongly the importance of the upcoming election.

I'm not sure, but I don't ever remember seeing anything political like this from the church, is this a rare thing?

My aunt e-mailed this around. The subject line was "Where are the Methodists, Jews and Baptists?" I think the implication of the original sender (she forwarded it to us) was that all denominations should be creating something like this.

Some parishes are more "political" than others but as a rule direct electioneering is frowned upon.
