How about a video for the 'not-so-serious' Catholics? 44 percent of Catholics will vote for Kerry versus 41 percent Bush.

In re: to the comment about Catholic support for President Bush please read the below Catholic World News article.

Polls show Catholic support shifting to Bush

Washington, DC, Oct. 04 ( - Two major polls of Catholic voters show them shifting their support from Sen. John Kerry, a Catholic who voices support for abortion and gay marriage, to President George W. Bush, who is pro-life and supports a federal marriage amendment, reports the Washington Times on Monday.

The Barna Group, an Evangelical Christian pollster, showed Bush with a lead over Kerry, 53 percent to 39 percent, which is a considerable shift from a similar poll taken in May showing Kerry with 48 to 43 percent lead over Bush. That's a 19-point move in just four months among all self-identified Catholics, not just those who say they attend Mass at least weekly and support the Church's social teachings. The latest poll had a margin of error of 3 percent.

Another poll, also released last week before Thursday's presidential debate, from the Pew Research Center for People and the Press, also showed Bush, but by a slimmer margin, 49 percent to 39 percent. Catholics, as a whole, make up 23 percent of the electorate and are considered a key swing demographic.

Raymond Flynn, a former ambassador to the Vatican who now heads a Catholic citizenship group, said he has been noticing a more rapid shift to Bush, too. "They've been moving and closer to George Bush all the time," he told the Washington Times . "I think people don't make decisions on political or social issues; they make decisions on the character of the person. That's where George Bush's strength is: his character and its qualities. He's a good man, and people like him." He said that issues such as gay marriage and abortion have hurt Kerry. Other observers also point out that the continuing controversy over some bishops saying that they would deny Communion to Kerry because of his public stance on abortion has hurt him as well.

well we know you aren't a serious Catholic because you find joy in ridiculing people's speech (which is a sin) rather then having a sincere discussion about issues.
