Disgusting: Fake "Catholic" voter's guide 

Just read the following; the word "pathetic" springs to mind ... Fake 'Catholic Voters Guide' Published by Former Aide to John Kerry
Attempt to recapture the Catholic vote launched by Democratic supporters
by John-Henry Westen, 29 September 2006

"A new 2006 Voter Guide has been put out by 'Catholic in Alliance for the Common Good' (CACG) a group headed up by Alexia Kelley who in 2004 worked as a religion advisor to John Kerry in the closing weeks of his campaign. ...

"Commenting on the new 12-page booklet, Catholic League president Bill Donohue said 'The voter guide is a slick attempt to get the abortion albatross off the necks of Catholic Democrats, but it's a failed effort-the noose is still there. Instead of listening to James Carville and Paul Begala, who have counseled Democrats to drop their opposition to parental notification laws and their support for keeping partial-birth abortion legal, the best Catholics in Alliance can do is say it is opposed to abortion. But it makes it painfully clear that it will never join any effort to ban any abortions, including partial-birth.'" Read the full article.

For a voter guide that actually represents faithful Church teaching, see the Voter's Guide for Serious Catholics, produced by Catholic Answers.
