But it's faded a lot since Kennedy's time and actually nowadays white Catholics are seen as some of the most conservative people in the country and it's true that they are. A majority of them are Republicans.
    But US Catholics are "Conservative" in that they are just reasonable people; otherwise they are atheists and no longer refer to themselves as Catholic.

    It's always really annoyed me, though, when Northern Catholics think they agree with Southern Christian values because they're not aware that Southern Christian values are anti-Catholic!

    But any conservatism/traditionalism preaches the same family-based moral values, so on these points both tend to agree...

    Yes, that's why real religious Catholics and Southern Protestants are on the same side politically.

    There was a land of Cavaliers and Cotton Fields called the Old South. Here in this pretty world Gallantry took its last bow. Here was the last ever to be seen of Knights and their Ladies Fair, of Master and of Slave . . . Look for it only in books for it is no more than a dream remembered. A Civilization gone with the wind . . .
