Tracking the Religious Vote in 2008
The Barna Group, via LGF, has an interesting analysis on how people of faith voted in 2008.
There are several significant findings on who Christians, Evangelicals, Catholics, Jews and atheists voted for this year compared to previous elections. Of course, it should be noted that this year the economic crisis probably influenced more of those religious voters than previous years, too.
One of the more surprising statistics was that, “Nearly half of all registered Catholics were aligned with the Democratic Party (48%), compared to only about one-quarter associated with the Republicans (28%) and one-fifth who remained independent (20%).” This was particularly shocking since the Catholic Church is resolutely pro-Life and the Democrats nominated Barack Obama who was the most radical pro-abortion candidate to ever run for president.
Maybe Barack Obama’s outrageous and dishonest mock “Pro-Life” websites paid for by George Soros had an impact?
After the election it was announced that one of the first moves by the most radical pro-abortion and infanticide candidate in the last 35 years will be to expand abortion funding.
Do you suppose Catholics are even aware of this?
