CatholicPrecincts.org on Minnesota's Sixth District

One Jason Jones, president of a group called CatholicPrecincts.org, condemns the mainstream Catholics United for the Common Good, a group dedicated to infusing Catholic social teaching into public life, because they dared to demand that Republican congressional candidate Michele Bachmann explain her position on whether or not the Pope is the anti-christ, a teaching of her ultra-conservative denomination the Wisconcin Evangelical Lutheran Synod.

“It is sad that CUCG spends their time wanting to publicly debate theology while Bachmann’s opponent, Patty Wetterling, is staunchly in favor of the destruction of innocent human life and holds other positions that are unquestionably opposed to Catholic values. Wetterling is so strongly pro-abortion that she is one of only a few candidates nationwide that are being funded by EMILY’s List, an organization that proudly supports partial-birth abortion and taxpayer funded abortions."

I, for one, want to know what Bachmann really thinks of Catholics, especially in our heavily Catholic district. For the record, CUCG has not endorsed Bachmann's Democratic opponent, child safety advocate Patty Wetterling.
