A 'dramatic shift' Among Catholics is Drawing the Devoted to Trump's 'fortitude and courage'; Catholic traditionalists swing to Trump

A 'dramatic shift' among Catholics is drawing the devoted to Trump's 'fortitude and courage':
Catholic voters have an opportunity in November to help elect only the second Catholic president in U.S. history in former Vice President Joseph R. Biden, but already the more devout followers are lining up behind President Trump.
Gone are the days when nearly 80% of Catholic voters united to push Irish-Catholic Democrat John F. Kennedy into the White House in 1960. Catholic voters today are split on the 2020 candidates, even though Mr. Biden is a lifelong Mass-attending Catholic, and Mr. Trump is a Presbyterian.
A Pew Research Center poll released last month found that 50% of registered Catholic voters plan to vote for Mr. Trump, while 49% back Mr. Biden.
“The Catholic vote is not a monolithic vote in America,” said Brian Burch, president of the conservative CatholicVote. “We’ve moved away from that kind of tribal, if-he’s-a-Catholic-therefore-I-trust-him view. There are other reasons inside our own church for that as well. It’s not enough to merely say you’re Catholic.” --->READ MORE HERE

‘Biden Report for Catholic Voters’ Slams Candidate’s Record on Key Issues
A Catholic advocacy group has published a scathing review of Joe Biden’s political record on issues considered vitally important to conscientious Catholics.
The 93-page “Biden Report for Catholic Voters” was produced by the conservative CatholicVote organization and purports to offer “a comprehensive examination of Joe Biden’s 47-years in public life from a Catholic perspective.”
“Today Joe Biden is running for president as a prominent U.S. Catholic with regular references to his faith and Catholic upbringing, citations of popes, and purported embrace of Catholic moral values,” the report states, and yet on the 8 issues most important to Catholics Mr. Biden has proved himself “hostile” to the faith.
The report examines Mr. Biden’s stance on the issues of life, judges, work, religious freedom, health care, marriage, education, and immigration as well as the evolution and radicalization of his positions over his lengthy political career. --->READ MORE HERE
