… My dating pool is drying up and as a happy result my faith, morals, and unwillingness to compromise saves me a lot of time and trouble. Three years ago I was advocating Catholics dating non-Catholics [see #5], as long as they were practicing Christians. Then one day I realized I desired heaven more than a spouse and took it all back. Now I am about to make that list of desirables even shorter by excluding liberals.
After the devastating re-election of Obama, Catholic Match posed the question of whether politically divided couples could happily coexist. This politically and morally conservative woman cannot and will not coexist, especially since the core issues of the liberal Democratic party are in direct opposition of the Catholic Church; issues like abortion and same sex marriage.
“These questions are more than just issues for political figures to banter about in a public forum. They are deeply complex moral, ethical and social dilemmas that each of us must come to terms with and align ourselves with Catholic teaching. If your significant other is unable to do the same, a tense election season is only a minor issue in light of a future together that may be emotionally draining and spiritually dangerous.”
It’s more than a political divide. It’s become a moral divide as well. The democratic party, once the people’s party, has become the party of Big Government where Big Government replaces God and political policies replace moral law. To be a liberal, Democrat Catholic is an oxymoron. You can be one or the other, never both. That’s why I think politically coexisting is impossible; especially if take your faith with any shred of seriousness. To coexist means that someone is compromising in an area where compromise should never have to be made; in matters of faith.
