    Thomas: I am an independent and that is the best way to be because it avoids one becoming indoctrinated to any "party platform or agenda". No one can count on just how you will or won't vote. That makes their stupid polls meaningless. it also encourages you to have to "THINK" about how you will vote.

    I, too, wonder what took him so long. Yes, the generosity of the dems to try to redistribute someone else's wealth does look like they are doing God's Will, but are they really? How do you separate that from the ongoing killing of the unborn? Anyway, I'm glad he finally came to his senses.

    No surprise it took so long to come to terms with reality. How many Catholics believe that missing Sunday(Saturday) Mass is not a Mortal Sin and why? Kennedy Era? From Joe to Ted the myth has been perpetuated by the enablers in the Catholic Church. Power and greed can get you a seat with the Cardinal in Boston and many other places. Pope Francis has his work cut out for him.

    The bishop, like all people, was redeemed by the cross of Jesus. Politics has nothing to do with it. It takes being actively engaged in what Pope Francis calls "doing good' for the unborn, the poor, the unwanted, the young, the disabled, the handicapped, the lost, the elderly and those millions of people considered to be useless and non-productive.

    I have always wondered how many Bishops, priests, nuns, and deacons are registered Democrats.

    Fo me I see nothing in the democratic party and very little in the republican party worth supporting. AS a life long republican I'm changing to INDEPENENT.

    Why go Republic Party Bishop? were not millions of babies aborted while Republic Presidents were in office the last 22 out the last 40 years! and I don't recall Republic governors raising a stink about abortion till the Republic Party came under the domination of the Christian Right and it was the Republic Party that was similar to the Democratic Party not the other way around.

    Party platforms are on line for anyone to read. I read the party platform of the Democratic Party and I knew that they would never NOT support "Gay Marriage" and "Abortion on Demand". I read it before the election of 2008. It was then that I decided that I could not vote for any Democrat until the party platform changed. So far it has not changed. The Democratic Party is totally agenda driven and totally devoted to their party platform word for word. Obama is the party platform incarnate and in action. He is very loyal as a Democratic White house planted Democratic Party puppet. He is a Democratic Party darling. He happens to be black so if one expresses disappointment in the President or his party and their party platform,than they are hateful and racist.

    Voting for a party that endorses baby killing, leaves the blood of the dead infant on the voters hands. I can't imagine any reason that God would smile at one voting for baby killers. The parable of the Prodigal Son rings out with this article, now, if the rest of the "Catholic" populace would remove their heads from where the sun don't shine, we might be a nation that God blesses again.

    This is very troubling and begs more questions. How many more bishops and priests are registered Democrats? Why has he sided with the culture of death for so long?
