Several Catholic blogs have already commented on this mailing, produced by the Democrat Party in Minnesota, which is being sent out across the state:
If you can’t quite make it out, the pin reads “Ignore the Poor”.
The back of the mailing is even more offensive (though not as blatantly anti-Catholic):
Conservatives are often attacked for “bringing their faith into politics”, but look what this ad does: it simultaneously accuses Preacher Hall of “pushing politics from the pulpit” AND asks “Who in God’s name would deny health care to the poor?”
In other words, the Democrats behind this mailing want it both ways: they want to use a moral argument which puts God in their camp, but they also refuse to allow that there may be other valid interpretations of how to translate the teachings of Christ into our politics.
Speaking of wanting to have it both ways, these Democrats opted to not only impugn Pracher Hall’s character, they also decided to go after the Catholic Church. So not cool.
