Analyzing leftist groups that urge Catholic support for liberal candidates

Catholic World News - August 16, 2012

In Catholic World Report, Anne Hendershott reports on the groups that arise in the US each election year to encourage Catholic support for liberal political candidates.

Analyzing groups like Catholics United and Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good, Hendershott notes that many receive support from non-Catholic donors associated with the ideological Left, such as George Soros. The groups show little interest in promoting the teachings of the Catholic Church, she observes.

    Has Catholic Culture published a similar study of that arise in the US during each election to encourage Catholic support for conservative political candidates? They also receive financial support from non-Catholic donors associated with the ideological Right. Such groups also show little interest in promoting the teachings of the Catholic Church.
