RNC/Life PAC Endorses Kerr in KY-6 Special Election |
A special election will be held in Kentucky’s 6th Congressional District on February 17, 2004 to fill the seat vacated by former Rep. Ernie Fletcher, who resigned in order to seek the Republican primary nomination for Governor.
RNC/Life PAC has announced its endorsement of state Senator Alice Forgy Kerr, who is a solid, pro-life and pro-family candidate with high expectations of winning the race. She has the enthusiastic support of Kentucky’s cultural conservatives as well as the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC).

Dr. Diamond points out that The Illinois Leader, a conservative news source available on the Internet, “has recently published on their web page the results of a survey of voting patterns of Chicago priests covering four primary elections from 1996 through 2002. This study demonstrates a consistent voting pattern of approximately 4 to 1 in favor of the Democrat Party among Catholic priests in Chicago. Actual vote results were as follows: In 1996 80.2% of Chicago priests voted Democrat and 19.8% Republican; in 1998, 83.5% voted Democrat and 16.5% Republican; 2000 saw 77.0% voting Democrat and 23.0% Republican; and in 2002, 78.7% voted Democrat with 24.5% voting Republican. On average, 78.7% of Catholic priests in Chicago voted Democrat. These percentages apply to those who actually voted. Not all priests voted in each of the primaries. One interesting side note is that 100% of recorded votes by auxiliary bishops of the Chicago archdiocese were for the Democrat Party.”
The glaring inconsistency between Catholic Church teaching on life issues and priestly voting patterns will be shocking to many grassroots pro-life Catholics. According to Dr. Diamond’s report, “party affiliation strongly influences congressional voting records.” “Those [in Congress] with 100% pro-life records consisted of 156 Republicans (86%) and 25 Democrats (14%). Among those voting consistently anti-life were 175 Democrats (92%) and 14 Republicans (8%). According to Senator Santorum 60% of the votes to support Partial Birth Abortion, certainly the most odious vote possible, were Catholic senators of record. Such a record bespeaks a total failure of the Catholic system to support life adequately among its members.”
