DFL Disgrace

When Ray from MN sent me an email with the appalling and disgraceful info he discovered about a DFL (Democrat-Farmer-Labor) postcard mailing I thought it was a bad joke. You can read more about it on Stella Borealis

In Minnesota, the state Democrat party is called the DFL. Also, for the record, though Stella Borealis is a group blog, Ray from MN is the primary contributor and he is a he, not a she as has been erroneously reported in some publications. I know Ray has a big following among transgenders but come on! LOL

That the DFL would launch a campaign like this not only shows the most appalling anti-Catholicism; it also illustrates stupidity and a complete lack of understanding of their political base.

Many dissident Catholics, also known as "progressive" Catholics in the Twin Cities are DFL voters. They, frequently, ignore the Church teachings not to vote for abortion candidates because they are all about supporting the types of progressive causes the DFL typically espouses. The DFL is usually perceived by progressive and dissident Catholics as the social justice party.

Dissident and progressive Catholics, of whose number I used to be among, if they love only one thing about actual Catholic teaching is the social justice the Church advocates. Yes, their notion of what that social justice is and is not is often mistaken, but they embrace their concept of Catholic social justice in its entiriety.

I ask the Catholic DFL supporter today, do you not see that the DFL has no understanding of your faith, much less respect for it? If the DFL had a clue they would realize that they have gone too far.

Let's talk even more plainly. This DFL postcard campaign is a lame attempt at solidarity with the Catholics who were upset over Archbishop Nienstedt's marriage DVD-most of whom probably vote DFL. The DFL thinks it understands you and this is their response. "We know you hate the Church and so do we"

The DFL has finally "come out of the closet"

Good post Cath - You got that right about progressive dissident Catholics loving Catholic social teaching - but don't forget - many of the activist priests wouldn't be caught dead in clericals either - unless they were a woman priest or for a photo op protesting something the Archbishop said about gay marriage. Hence, I am quite certain the DFL ad would never really bother them.

Man,...and I thought Wisconsin politics was weird!
No social justice for the unborn, the elderly and terminally ill (just you wait until THAT gets going full-steam ahead) I'm afraid.
You learn something every day...Ray as a transgendered following!!LOL!!:-)!(Ray, you know I love, you, man!)

It's a nickname for Guadalupe. Makes no sense.

The DFL's campaign reminds me of what Jim Wallis, another Life Enhancement Centre leader, has decided to do with his campaign. It's "social justice" that pushes every leftist agenda down our throat. We know what they want.

And if Reid and Company can keep 50 seats, they will push for more judges and ban the filibuster to effectively give Clinton and Obama control over the judiciary, and that means effectively moving the nation's capital to Bruxelles. I fear a friend who nearly lost her life to a teen shooter has to fear him again.

Oh, by the way: I went to school with our gubernatorial candidate Haley; I was forced out of that school when kids attacked me in a gruesome manner that kids loved it and cheered each time I was attacked. No respect for conservative values by those kids. No better in goverment school either. Parochial is the only way to go. And the bullying campaign is nothing more than stating "We have the law, we can punish you, we're going to charge you with federal criminal charges because we feel like it." Thank you, Al Franken.
