Closing Arguments In Wisconsin

First, the demographics of the state. Wisconsin has 5.7 million people living in it. Catholics make of 1.7 million of them, and when you add mainline and evangelical protestants, 80% of the state’s population have a values component to their vote.
Barack Obama’s closing argument? Have this girl tell you to vote for Barack because it’s just like losing your virginity.
The Catholic Church’s closing argument?
This is Green Bay Bishop David Ricken, who just sent out a letter to parishioners in Green Bay that voting for candidates who support intrinsic evil such as abortion and gay marriage could put their souls in jeopardy.
In case you haven’t figured out, yet, the Catholic Church in America, certainly at the bishop level, have figured out they cannot sit on the sidelines this time, because the modern day Democratic Party is an existential threat. And it’s not just because of the radical social issues to which the Democratic Party is clutching tighter, but because of the HHS mandates. The bishops and cardinals see that it’s not just creeping into the destruction of freedom of religion in this country, it’s a full scale offensive, and the Church cannot remain silent.
