My Catholic friends are politically diverse, and I find that interesting. I'm speaking of my practicing Catholic friends, those I've met at church functions. These people I refer to as my church friends. I have other friends who happen to be Catholic.
Some of my church friends take the Social Justice Road of Catholicism, vote Democrat, and march in immigrant rights parade.
Some of my church friends take the Conservative Pro-Life Republican Road. Of course one can be pro-life and a Democrat.
