Regis University And The Obama Presidential Campaign

The Obama campaign attempted to schedule a rally-like event on a Catholic university campus in the key swing state of Colorado before settling on a dialogue with a co-chair of Catholics for Obama. “Their original intent was to have more of a rally element to it,” said Paul Alexander, director of Regis University's Institute for the Common Good, which hosted the event. “We just felt we couldn’t do a rally, but we felt a healthy dialogue among Catholics was important.” About 45 people attended the Oct. 25 dialogue and small group discussion with Catholics for Obama national co-chair Nicholas P. Cafardi, a law professor and dean emeritus of Duquesne University School of Law. The event was titled “Catholic Social Teaching: The Intersection of Faith and Politics.” Although it was hosted by the Jesuit university’s institute, it took place because of outreach from the Obama campaign. Alexander told CNA Oct 26 that another Catholics for Obama national co-chair by the name of Victoria Kovari, the “main point of contact,” had sought out the university and asked if it would be willing to host an event.Kovari is a former national field director and former interim president of the Democrat-leaning group Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good. She attended the Denver event along with Broderick Johnson, a senior advisor to the Obama campaign.

That cartoon is offensive . I see no coverage on P Ryans plans to shut senior centers leave children hungry and homeless . What will Romney do to protect mother earth. ?

Neither of the major parties are much in line with Catholic beliefs, which is why it is so important - I think - for Catholics to be able to take a step back from the heat of the campaign and look at the big picture.

Anonymous, you are obviously a leftist Obamabot. Your gross mischaracterization of Ryan's conservatism is laughable. Mother Earth? Get lost.

Obama is not a leftist--he's a bland centrist. The rightie repubs think that anyone to the left of Ayn Rand is a commie.

left, right, middle...who cares.

Obama opposes the Catholic religion and promotes the murder babies worldwide. Next on the agenda will be the murder of the elderly.

Obama is not a Democrat, but a Baathist.

No paranoia and conspiracy theory here my friend. The facts speak for themselves; you just need to get your head out of your ass.

Fact: voters who supported disordered sexuality in an abhorrent and patently absurd attempt to equate unnatural unions with natural marriage have thereby endorsed and advanced grave moral evil and have contributed to social depravity.

Fact: Catholics who voted in such a manner against the natural law, against Divine Revelation, and against infallible Church teaching have jeopardized their salvation.

disordered, natural, infallible--real Christian.

The pro-life movement is just a posture.
