    abandon the Catholic Church. They may vote Dem, use birth control and favor gay rights but they will continue to support the church. I have several cousins like that. I don't understand the mindset, but then, when I left Catholicism behind me the Mass was still in Latin.

    You fell victim to one of the classic blunders, the most famous of which is "Never get involved in a land war in Asia".

    •  Not sure you are right (4+ / 0-)

      I stayed through the abuse scandal (with reservations).  I am gone now.  This was the straw that broke the proverbial camel's back for me.  I don't see myself joining any religious institution ever again.  I pray in my closet and I really don't care to discuss religion with anyone ever again.   I felt driven from the church with this go around on women's contraception.  Not going back.

      I vote Democratic because I am a woman with self-respect , who rejects bigotry of all kinds, subscribes to science, believes in universal health care, embraces unions, and endorses smart internationalist foreign policy.

        women-and men-like you. I will be seeing a bunch of those cousins in few weeks. Maybe they'll have changed.
