  •  EWTN--Are we surrendering the Catholic contiituent (none)
    EWTN is celebrating its 25 year anniversary. They are the only Catholic Channel spanning the whole country and the world and shaping many minds.

    I have noticed more and more Protestant Converts on the show and using Republican codewords like Strict Constructionist, Dred Scot,  etc and less emphasis on social justice. In fact one convert who was a guest in Marcus Grodi was a founder of a Right wing political advocacy group.

    I think Democrats should engage more the Catholics and Religious.  Show up and talk about Social Justice.  2004 --was the first time a Republican won majority of Catholics.

    Democrats and Religious Left need to join the conversation and use the present tools and not just whine.

    •  From Union Square to Rome (none)
      I know that in my town the evangelicals are lost to us. They're a world unto themselves which thinks it is the world. It seems Catholics here still take the time to think. There's the tradition of Dorothy Day there, a spirit this Democrats can appreciate.
