I am going to open a crap storm here, but in my opinion there is a difference between what Jesus preached and the Catholic Church. (Of course, I'm Lutheran.) That said, my beliefs should not trump or impact Catholics because I selfishly think differently than them.
I am also going to politely ask how is what is happening now any different when the Democrats went against everything Bush and GOP proposed? (It is not. It is just becoming more partisan.) Critical thinking needs to be exercised when pointing out generalities within politics. If we do not use critical thinking, then we just become mindless political drones that are unable to discern the difference between a party's values and personal values, read about Adolf Eichmann. The members of the GOP politicians are becoming more independent, which is how it should be. We should all be bothered by the old 'rank and file' approach that have been exercised in the past...by both parties. At the end of 2013, we saw a bi-partiscian budget get through the Senate, and Democrats joined with the GOP on pushing back against the POTUS on his stance with Iran. Some progress is being made, we should be happy that maybe...just maybe our politicians might be able to reach compromise without personal attacks and demagoguery. I'd buy you a Molson and talk about it, if we were in the same city.
