"A Loyal Constituency Is Restless" (Opinion, Jan. 6), dealing with the Catholics of California, could not have been more on the mark. Those in the Democratic Party have become so dogmatic when it comes to their radical social agenda that it boggles the mind that any self-aware Catholic could support them today. After achieving complete power in 1998, it was only a matter of time before, once again, they ran home to their far-left universe, thereby successfully alienating the populace.
The budget disaster that is now upon us shows what the mindless fiscal policies of their ever-growing nanny state will do for you economically. Allowing same-sex marriage, forcing homosexuality upon our schoolchildren and ramming abortion down everyone's throat--all the while mocking any cultural institutions that oppose them--show you the nightmare of depravity such an ideology leaves behind.
In time, those of faith will, as they have in the past, discard such degenerate souls and go about picking up the mess they left behind. The only question is when.
I had to laugh when I read Tony Quinn's piece on Catholics and the Democratic Party. The phrase "the Catholic vote" is simply hilarious! As long as my church has members such as Jerry Brown and William F. Buckley, Tom Daschle and Pat Buchanan, and Martin Sheen and Arnold Schwarzenegger, "the Catholic vote" will remain just a pollster's joke.
