Jesuit magazine says elections results in US refute the idea of “two Americas”

.- The influential Jesuit magazine “La Civilitá Cattolica,” whose content is reviewed by the Vatican Secretary of State, has published an article by Father Angel Macchi, SJ, in the current edition in which Father Macchi offers very positive comments on the reelection of George W. Bush. According to Father Macchi, economic recovery, as well as “the distancing from Kerry by some Catholic bishops because of the issue of abortion” aided in Bush’s reelection.  In addition, “the extraordinary effort to bring as many voters to the polls as possible was crowned with success.”

The article also points to the “great cultural significance” of the referendums in 11 states defining marriage as the union between one man and one woman.  “In these 11 states where the referendums were put to a vote, they were approved by an overwhelming majority both in Republican and Democrat states, thus disproving the idea of the ‘two Americas’ split in half on fundamental moral issues.”
