The Cost of Political Prosperity

According to a recent survey released by Americans for Religious Liberty, Catholics remain the largest denominational group in the 109th Congress with a total of 153 seats, their highest total ever. Of those, 67 are Republicans and 86 are Democrats.

I find it striking that as Catholic political and economic power in the US has increased, fidelity to the teachings of the Church has decreased. When we were poor immigrants we built hospitals and schools, and looked after the poor. Now that we are wealthy and powerful we advocate for abortion.
