    from a 50-something male Catholic who had just got off the phone with his brother.  This was Sunday afternoon & they'd been talking about his experience in a small Hispanic neighborhood church that morning, when his pastor had said it would be wrong to vote for Obama because of abortion & the gays.   He was voting straight ticket Dem, but was upset at what the Church was doing, & said that they couldn't just keep pushing in this way & expect to keep their parishioners.  I agreed (I'm Catholic but go to a non-parish contemporary service) & suggested to him what I suggest to anyone I have that talk with: it's time to split from Rome & establish an American Catholic Church.  Yes, I know, that's Episcopalianism, but hey:-)
