What follows in the extended entry is something I got in my mailbox today. I am somewhat surprised that it wasn't left in a comments box.
I admit, I am somewhat intrigued by anyone who admits to being a cafeteria catholic. So I went over to the site and looked over their poll. Whoa, the way those questions are phrased are so loaded that I am incredulous. One of the best ways to bias a poll is to phrase your questions so that the answers will be what the pollster's financing wants it to be.
I haven't taken the time to really look into this organization. But I thought that some of the more political among you might be interested in investigation.
Oh, and the results they gave me don't really agree with how I intend to vote, either. It is all in the weighting of the possible answers.
I saw your blog and thought you might be interested in a voting guide and flash animation by the Catholic Voting Project.
Here is a link to a short flash animation:
Catholic Dining with Bush and Kerry, a lighthearted look at Catholic doctrine and the race for the U.S. Presidency. This animation uses the US Catholic Bishops statement on voting, Faithful Citizenship, to explore how both Presidential candidates measure up to Catholic teaching.
