Howard Dean on Catholics in America

On Saturday, New DNC chair Howard Dean had this to say about Catholics in America:
We have to remind Catholic Americans that the social mission of the
Democratic Party is almost exactly the social mission of the Catholic
Church.

Not in the transcript was the following line:
Except when it comes to abortion, embryonic stem cell research, same sex mariage, euthansia, and human cloning.

"Almost exactly"? I would have agreed if he said "sometimes exactly" or "once in a great while exactly". And I have some advice for Dean over the comments he made about speaking differently about abortion and other issues (Dems are "pro-choice" vice "pro-abortion): Actions speak louder than words.

I couldn't agree more. Politicians shouldn't pretend to be in line with Catholic teaching unless they're willing to take it seriously on ALL ISSUES. This applies to Dean and everyone else.
