Answer this: Is the Catholicism of U.S. House Speaker John Boehner an issue in politics?
Almost anyone outside of politics would say no. To most folks who grew up in the United States, took a civics class, understand the Constitution, there is something unpleasant about the notion.
So it may be disturbing to many to know that last month 70-plus Catholic leaders sent a letter to Boehner telling him that his party’s position on Medicare and Medicaid is “anti-life.”
