    The short answer is NO, especially regarding "Catholics" like Chris Matthews and Tom Daschle who are unapologetically pro-choice.
    Catholic Lite for Chris Matthews - Featured Today - Catholic Online
    "Yet, if Mr. Matthews wants to advance his liberal agenda, then that is his right. But he does not have the right to present himself in a public forum as a "Catholic." Public figures who profess to be Catholics have a duty to bear witness to the authentic teachings of the Catholic Church. This also holds true especially if they have positions of prominence in the media or in government..."

    "...An individual's religious beliefs goes to the very core of his moral character. The attempt by liberal Catholics to separate their private and public lives by insisting that the Church's teachings will not affect their positions on hot-button social issues such as abortion, euthanasia, and homosexuality shows that they do not take the basic tenets of their faith seriously. It is an attempt to bow to the fashions of our secular age, while still claiming membership in the church. They are trying to have their cake and eat it too."


    So my challenge to democrat "Catholics" is to say that when the progressive liberals demand litmus tests regarding abortion, you can be pro-choice, but then you can't be Catholic. So when the progressives demonize only Evangelicals, and then let Catholics skate because they say they are pro-choice, that's incorrect. The progressives should say that "Evangelicals and Catholics" have similar "unacceptable/intolerant" views and are unwelcome as democrats.

    Romans 16:18.

    For such men are slaves, not of our Lord Christ but of their own appetites; and by their smooth and flattering speech they deceive the hearts of the unsuspecting.

    Matthew 7:5

    Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye;
    and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

    Chris Mathews is educated and knows that Catholic objection to Abortion was generated from politics of 1840s Europe and nothing God got involved in ...

    Modern Look at Abortion Not Same as St. Augustine's

    views of Saint Augustine, who said: ‘the law does not provide that the act (abortion) pertains to homicide, for there cannot yet be said to be a live soul in a body that lacks sensation.’” (Saint Augustine, On Exodus 21.22)

    Saint Augustine is a super saint...

    The Democrats have always been the party of immorality.

    Now Trump has made the GOP the same.

    True Christians wouldn't even be involved in politics, as it is of the world.

    A Christian is a follower of Christ, a person dedicated to spreading the gospel. This is what it means.

    That's no congruent in politics, in which the party that one belongs to is what your life is dedicated to.

    Correct me if I'm wrong.
