A Couple of Interesting Posts from Catholics in the Public Square

You are "Always a Critical Voting Bloc": McCain Now Leads Widely Among Catholics

The latest Zogby poll ... Here is the link with the details.

One excerpt especially relevant to Catholic readers of this blog: "Catholics, who are always a critical voting bloc, favored Obama by 11% in mid-July. Now, they favor McCain by 15%."

Paging Archbishop Niederauer ...
In an interview on C-SPAN that aired on Sunday, Pelosi was asked about how some church officials have raised objections about whether former presidential contenders -- such as Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) -- should receive communion.

Pelosi, a Roman Catholic whose district includes most of San Francisco, said she has not encountered such difficulties in her church.

"I think some of it is regional," she said, "It depends on the bishop of a certain region and fortunately for me, communion has not been withheld and I'm a regular communicant so that would be a severe blow to me if that were the case."

Interesting results. I'd like to see the breakdown though between frequent church goers and not so frequent church goers.

Ad for Niederauer, I doubt he'll do anything at all according to his track record.
