i'll post this to the Videos section as well. 

while the video never explicitly states who to vote for, it is certainly implied.  this is a Catholic organization (Catholics Called to Witness) which no doubt enjoys tax exempt status and is encouraging an entire voting block to vote for a single party.  the party of "values" as the video explains, the party who will give the Church whatever religious liberties they want, the party who is against gay marriage, and the party who is "pro-life".  which party is that again? 

as the video ominously warns, your vote will be recorded "for eternity".  so it is basically suggesting that if you vote Democrat, you will burn in hell.  am i reading to much into that?  i honestly don't think so. 

here is the link to their website:  http://www.cc2w.org/mission/ 

they are a 501(c)(3) organization, which is indeed tax-exempt.  per the IRS,  "Section 501(c)(3) organizations are restricted in how much political and legislative (lobbying) activities they may conduct."

I commented on that YouTube page. Here is what I said:

You can tell what I think about religion by reading my username below. I hope that does not deter you from reading my question: Where do you really stand on issues like the ones in this video? Like contraception, sexually transmitted diseases, gay people (let alone gay marriage), the infallibility of the Bible, the infallibility of the all too human church leaders. What are you really standing up for?

Well, actually I'm not an atheist.  I have two gods.  Their names are Nature & Science.  While I worship neither, I respect them both.
