Michael Voris of RealCatholicTV.com gives an excellent historical perspective on the historical connection between the Democrat Party and Catholics - starting from the days of mass Catholic immigration to this country. He makes plain why so many bishops want to find "common ground" with the party that has now come out in favor of baby murder, all manners of debauchery and draconian statism. Please watch.
Note how he said that a main historical link has been the labor movement. I've no intention of distracting from Mr. Voris' focus on SEIU, but I must make mention of a former president of the AFL-CIO named John Sweeney. I mentioned him in my December 4th posting on why the USCCB should be dismantled. Go to that post and read the comment from one of my fellow bloggers. His blog is in the right sidebar. Apparently Archbishop Wuerl decided that Sweeney needed more honors, so he gladly obliged.
I again reiterate my position that it's way past the time when the USCCB should be dismantled. Maybe then some of the Democrats' stranglehold over the bishops might be weakened.
