He’s taking a hit.
According to the latest Pew poll, the president is down eight percentage points with Catholics.
As he should be. Among other things, the HHS Mandate affects the Catholic business owner, as much as a cardinal with charge of a chancery building or a religious sister working at a Catholic school. (A point the bishops have been clarifying in point out.)
According to the poll, Mitt Romney is now at 57 percent with White Catholic registered voters.
Joe Biden is vice president in no small part to his Scranton altar-boy cred. It’s going to take more than Biden’s nostalgia – or other “ardent, practicing Catholic” propaganda cover — to explain away this administration’s hostility to religious liberty as we’ve known it.
