Another strike by Project Veritas. Catholics more conservative than Protestants?? Really?
No not far as voting is concerned,
Reyes-Barrientez found that Latinos have historically voted Democratic, with the Democratic Party receiving 58 percent of their vote on average from 1977-2014. The Republican Party has received only 19 percent on average, with the years 2000 and 2004 as an exception when George W. Bush received more than 40 percent of the vote.
According to a Pew Research poll, 55 percent of Latinos in the U.S. identify as Catholic, and 22 percent are Protestants. In her research, Reyes-Barrientez looked at four sub-groups to better understand how religion affects voting habits: evangelical Catholics, mainline Catholics, evangelical Protestants and mainline Protestants, with the evangelicals being
It seems to have always been that Catholics vote more left.
Religion will surely figure prominently in the 2004 presidential election. The Democratic Party is poised to nominate John Kerry for president, making him the first Roman Catholic major party nominee since the Democrats nominated John F. Kennedy in 1960. Some Catholic leaders have openly expressed disagreement with Kerry's position on a few social issues -- most notably abortion -- and have suggested he be denied Communion when he attends church because of his views on such issues. Kerry's rival, President George W. Bush, is a Protestant who credits his faith with straightening out his life. One of Bush's major initiatives as president has been to provide government funds to faith-based organizations.
Latinos are defecting to the Republicans in droves, in part due to Trump but also as a protest to Democrat positions on things. I just never saw a big difference between Catholics and Protestants as to conservative or liberal. Lutherans, as an example, have conservative branches--Missouri synod and Wisconsin synod--and ELCA on the liberal side. I realize that is based on religious practice but political ideals run in a similar frame of mind. I think any prejudice against any denomination or religion is just plain stupid.
I think that until the abortion issue came up, Catholics had traditionally voted Democrat; but the ones i remember from back around the Kennedy years, were very conservative. Most people, Catholic, Protestant, or non-Christian were pretty conservative back then.
We never had the kinds of ridiculous protests that we have seen from the pro-abortion supporters.
Catholics didn’t even believe in birth control back then, so they were probably considered even more conservative than other people.
I think it is also stupid to run from a socialist poor nation to a republic and then vote to turn it socialist. I don't know how those from India vote [ the third largest group of immigrants] but I do know all other new immigrants vote socialist. Of course, the Jewish immigrants also vote almost entirely democrat, and they are from a 1st. world nation.
If the religion comes here to change the culture of the nation, they entered then that is a problem, but that always happens once one culture has high numbers. So, nothing new under the sun. All empires fail sooner or later.
