It won’t be long before results of the looooong presidential campaign of 2008 are known, but the debate over the Catholic influence on that vote is likely to continue. A quick search of Google news alerts on Catholic vote shows that it’s a subject that seems to fascinate the world.
The Times of Malta, for example, had this story yesterday. The Dallas Morning News said in this article that the election had as much to do with “Church Street” as it did with Wall Street or Main Street. A Los Angeles Times columnist proclaimed the end of the Catholic vote last week, while Medical News Today had this summary of various newspapers’ views on the subject.
We here at CNS also have had a lot to say about the Catholic vote, as evidenced by this story and this one. There will be more tomorrow, next week at the U.S. bishops’ meeting in Baltimore and beyond.
