Law, culture, and Catholicism...up in smoke!

Catholics in Alliance for . . . Democrats

Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good, the publisher of the Voting for the Common Good voter's guide (aka the Voter's Guide for Less-than-Serious Catholics), has published on its website a table of exit polling data which indicates a "dramatic shift" in the Catholic vote from Republicans to Democrats.

Any guesses as to whether they think this shift is a good thing?

They explain the shift this way:

"Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good, which performed the preliminary analysis on exit poll data, credit the swing to Catholic voters' increasing concern with 'kitchen table' moral issues like the Iraq War and political corruption."

Translation: "We at Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good have succeeded in convincing voters of the morally relativistic position that there are many issues in every election and that Catholics should ignore fundamental Catholic moral teaching and simply vote their 'consciences' -- that is -- they should vote for Democrats."

Hat tip to Diogenes. See his analysis here.
