BLAZE ANALYSIS: THE CATHOLIC VOTE WENT TO OBAMA OVER ROMNEY DESPITE CONTRACEPTION & RELIGIOUS FREEDOM DEBATES
Editor's Note: We can see the powers that re-elected Obama... Don't be fooled.... The Mother of Harlots has given it's approval of Obama because he is in league with them.... He who has ears to hear let him hear... The Blaze November 8, 2012
A solid chunk of 2012, at least in the theological and political realms, was spent talking about the “War on Religion,” which subsequently — following a spat between radio host Rush Limbaugh and Sandra Fluke — evolved into the “War on Women.” At the center of the contention in both ideological battles, of course, was the Obama administration’s controversial contraceptive mandate.
The Catholic Church, infuriated over the notion that the government would force associated organizations to violate conscience by providing employees with birth control free-of-charge, launched into a nation-side campaign against the provision. Despite a concerted effort on the part of Catholics and evangelicals, alike, to expose the issue as government intrusion on personal and institutional religious liberty, on Tuesday, President Barack Obama still won the majority of the U.S. Catholic vote.

Exit polls from the highly-contentious 2012 presidential race show that Obama captured 50 percent of this coveted cohort, with Romney taking 48 percent of adherents. In the end, it was close — but the results likely weren’t what some conservative Catholics hoped they would be.
While some may wonder why gauging Catholics at the polls is important, as Irish Central notes, since 1972, the majority (or largest proportion) of this cohort has gone with the winning presidential candidate (at least based on popular vote); now, that pattern continues.
