Pick one as your favourite, or pick them all. They are all great..... In His Majesty's Service, THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT

THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: Okay, let's lay it all out on the table. If you've got a "Catholic National Advisory Council," and not a single person on that council agrees with the Catholic Church's most fundamental moral and social teachings, then essentially what you have as a committee that believes the only good Catholic is a bad Catholic.  By "bad Catholic" I mean one who opposes the Church on all of it's most fundamental moral and social teachings. What we have here is the epitome of prejudice.  It's bigoted and anti-Catholic to the core.

If Obama wants a REAL "Catholic National Advisory Council," he should try putting one together that is at least HALF Pro-Catholic on social issues, then at least he could say that he's TRYING to reach out to Catholics. What he's doing right now is insulting. Combine that with the donation he accepted from (a blatantly Anti-Catholic organization) and it's downright offensive!
