  •  The majority of Catholics voted for Obama (5+ / 0-)

    The majority of Catholics voted for Obama, who is pro-choice and pro-LGBT rights. Does that make the majority of Catholics heretics who should be thrown out of the church? Perhaps so, but the result would be a tiny church filled only with right-wing fanatics. Then throw out everyone who supports the death penalty or any wars, which are also against the Church's teachings, or who pay or collect interest (i.e. anyone with a credit card or checking account), which is much more clearly against Christian teachings (Jesus was quite clear about moneylenders being evil, and didn't say anything about gays or abortion) and you'd have empty buildings.

    Come to think of it, that might be a good resolution. Some Catholic architecture is quite beautiful.
