Bill Donohue Explains Why Catholics Vote Liberal

By    |   Friday, 21 Oct 2016 03:46 PM

There's an interesting reason why Catholics, governed by conservative religious ideology, end up voting for liberal candidates, Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, tells Newsmax TV.

"For the most part, in terms of the Catholic population, most of them are non-practicing," Donohue said Friday on "America Talks Live."

"As far as Catholics who go to church on a weekly basis, they're overwhelmingly conservative, they accept the church's teachings. You get these people who are no more Catholic than I am Buddhist, quite frankly, but they report that way.

"They show up in the polls that way. The last time they went to church maybe was Easter and then Christmas, if they went there at all."

Donohue, author of "Unmasking Mother Teresa's Critics," published by Sophia Institute Press, also believes that the nation is facing further division over various social issues, regardless of whether Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump is the next president.

"I wrote several books, one of them was called 'The New Freedom' back in 1990 it came out. I talked about the atomization of our society. It doesn't begin in Washington, it begins in the culture," Donohue said.

"We are a divided people. Now it's at a record level. I've never seen anything like it, where the divisions are this strong.

"Golly knows what will happen this Thanksgiving as Americans of all faiths get across the table because we're divided within the families. It's a very ugly situation and it's only going to get worst, I hate to say."
