Bush Courts Catholics

"Roman Catholics should campaign hard for Protestant President Bush, 'the candidate who shares the values Catholics hold dear,' rather than for Catholic challenger John Kerry, Republican leaders told activists at a rally near the GOP convention on Thursday."

When asked about the 152 executions in Texas during Bush's governorship, Republican leaders suddenly remembered they had left their ovens on.

That's kind of a common misconception: that capital punishment is against Catholic teaching. You'd sure think that sometimes...but it isn't . Even the Pope (this pope) has said sometimes it is a valid punishment.
