    Its a pretty big issue not to mention MN's stance on stem cell research, using tax dollars for abortion around the world.

    Its not they are one issue voters its that they are not really practicing catholics, like the afore mentioned jews who voted for a man that would let Israel go swishing down the toilet so as not to piss off the muzzies.

    The must be cafeteria Catholics.
    They must have actually read their Bible.. and discovered that there is no such passage which reads, "Thou shalt not abort".

    But we are supposed to accept your interpretation of the bible. Does being an athiest make you more credible?

    My interpretation isnt the issue (any view that holds the Bible to be more than a man-made collection of stories is wrong, in my view).. but since the Bible is silent on the biology of human reproduction, it shouldn't be surprising that there are Catholics and Christians who see no wrong in some forms of abortion... and they are probably just as devout and faithful as any other.

    Not necessarily, but it certainly helps.

    When was that? I don't think I've ever seen it higher than about #5 on lists of issues important to voters. Economic conditions and wars are going to beat out things like abortion every time.

    That does not make it less of an issue to millions of voters does it? FYI, I think 75% of the voters are dumb as a rock. They automatically vote by party affiliation and personality rather than on issues.

    It might not make it less of an issue to some voters, but that's not enough to affect the outcome of most elections. I think most people have decided this is "settled law".

    Exactly. That's why we frequently change the party in charge.

    Does anyone seriously think McCain's position is why he lost?
