Thought it very interesting that I attended a Theology meeting last week titled “Catholicism in Politics.” The intent was to clear up any election questions for people in our parish. We were given the whole deal, as Mr. Neumayr says, about looking at all the issues and treating them equally. The Deacon said the same things mentioned in the article. He even passed out an “election scorecard”! I was outraged that they would consider several key issues on the same level as others which are minor at best. We have long felt that our church leadership was quietly liberal. Now this! br> Any more info on this “scorecard”? Its origins?

Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
