"You can't be a catholic and a Democrat" according to some twitwit calling himself fr.

altman. This comes on the heels of the US bishops thumbing their noses at their head, the discoveries of mass and unmarked graves at forced residential schools run by the church, the enslavement, torture and murder of Indigenous peoples, the Burning Times and Inquisition, the pedophile priests, the Magdaline Laundries, women as second-class non-thinking beings, and (on a personal note), the disgusting patriarchal propaganda that I heard yesterday at a funeral mass.

So I think that, in spite of himself, that nutbar may be correct. For none of those things are Democratic values.
