One of the excellent comments on the Register for today’s post (which is not political; I just thought this was a good comment):
This is why Catholics need to be wary about taking sides in the United States’ “Culture War”. The US is predominantly a Protestant nation. This means that the battle lines aren’t between secularism and Christianity, but secularism and heretical Christianity. (Not that I don’t like Protestants, but their moral theology is seriously deficient. I certainly don’t stay Catholic for the music.) As a result, Catholics may find themselves unwittingly supporting positions and ideas contrary to Church teaching due to a poorly thought out political alliance.
(I realize that these are pretty broad strokes. Perhaps protestantism in other countries looks different from American protestantism; and perhaps a certain crummy but VERY LOUD segment of American protestantism gets a disproportionate voice in the American media?)
