And we all wait with baited breath, wondering one very important question.. What the hell was in those e-mails?

Regardless of whether or not you follow the pope, or whether or not you’re catholic, I think its high time Christians of all denominations begin to band together in order to fight for what is truly right by fighting against the “progressivism” that is morally plaguing our country. I believe Pope Francis will be a wonderful leader, and I believe is anyone out there who follows Christ, regardless of denomination.
My views as a Catholic tell me that just as goodness exists in this world, so does evil. I do not automatically run to a priest or institution as guidance however. In fact, my entire family is of strong conservative values and fully support our constitutional right to bear arms. I believe that the true sin would be not doing everything I could to ensure the safety of family and loved ones of all people in this country. My faith has taught me strict discipline and personal responsibility, and it angers me to see so many “Catholics” who side with the Liberals all because they are so against violence in any manner. Well, the reality is that violence does exist, and it always will. I however, do not intend to become the victim. I will protect the people I love at any cost, and I’ll be damned if the government and MSM takes away that right.
I would guess that the social view points of an American Catholic differs greatly from that of a European Catholic. I'm Baptist. Rev. Al Sharpton claims to be Baptists. I'm sure that we don't agree on anything since I actually believe the Bible and he seemingly does not or is ignorant of it's teachings.
Nancy Pelosi and Ted Kennedy claim to be Catholics. C.S. Lewis (who I believe to be one of the most brilliant Christians to have lived) is Catholic.
But, the comparison is not quite fair because the term "evangelical" is really meaningless. There are plenty of liberals who would tell you they are "evangelical" but are the some people who get squeamish if any mention of their Saviour comes up in a public place.
Just wanted to expand on your comments. The fact is most people these days claim to be Catholic, but are not Catholic in faith, but name only. Pelosi and the Kennedys are not Catholic. The Catholic Church has the duty to refuse to give them communion due to their public heresies. The Catholic catechism says were are to be practical Catholics not nominal Catholics. So the results of the polls will be skewed because they are not taken by true Catholics, but are by Catholics by name only that believe they can pick and chose what Catholic believes to believe or not . Claiming to be something does not make it so. True Catholics are to be peaceful, but they do believe in protecting your own life or the lives of others whether by firearms or any other means when necessary.
