Fittingly, non-believers support Kerry

From Insight – “Seismic Catholic Shift to Bush”:

President George W. Bush has suddenly acquired a commanding lead among Catholic voters over his Democratic rival, Sen. John Kerry, according to the latest survey of the California-based Barna Research Group.

Barna called this finding a "seismic shift." In May, Kerry led Bush 48-to-43 percent among Catholics. Today, the ratio has changed to 53-to-36 percent in Bush's favor, reports Barna, an organization researching opinions and behaviors of the religious communities in the United States.
But there’s some good news for Senator Splunge:

Atheists and agnostics side with the Massachusetts senator at a 2-to-1 ratio.
This gives me the perfect opportunity to wish a Happy Blogoversary to Kathy at Relapsed Catholic. Four years!?! That’s like 80 in blog years.

I am not surprised by the Catholic vote shift. Recently I was discussing the situation with a Democrat running for local office who is a devout Catholic. I asked what he, as a Dem was going to do when it came time to vote. He replied that he would "pass" on voting for Kerry. He also indicated many in his parish would be voting for Bush.
