In a devastating blow to the campaigns of Republicans everywhere, the Catholic Church has shifted all its support to the Democratic Party.
The principal reason? Romney attacks and bad mouthing of those making less than $250 million a year….
In a report issued from Washington today, the Catholic Church said that is is disturbed by the demeaning campaign ad and conversation about poverty by the Romney campaign.
Anticipating Ryan’s nod as VP nominee, the Catholic Church castigated the both of them saying “at a time when millions are struggling financially, it is degrading to talk about the “dependency” of people hurting in this economy, as Gov. Romney did recently.”
“The budget proposed by Rep. Paul Ryan and supported by Gov. Romney”, it said, “balances the budget on the backs of the poor with cuts to Medicaid, Head Start, Pell Grants and other vital programs…”
The Catholic Church even went so far as to castigate Romney and Ryan….. asking them to spend time with the poor in Ryan’s home district, before making such blanket, demeaning, anti-religious, ungodly, and arrogant statements.
“Political leaders would not talk about the poor in demeaning ways or cut job training programs if they spent more time with the people they are affecting with their policies”
The Catholic Church is urging all practicing and non practicing Catholics to vote Democrats into each and every single office open this election cycle.
It is the only way to insure this never happens again…..
“We ask our political leaders to not sow hatred of the poor, but to speak with compassion.”
