Ninety-one percent of faculty and administrators from Americas top Catholic universities who contributed to presidential campaigns in 2012 gave to President Obama, a Campus Reform investigation has revealed.
The strong support for President Obama from Catholic schools came despite Democrats controversial health care legislation which could force employers to provide contraception for employees even though it is explicitly forbidden under Catholic doctrine.

Evil is everywhere and nowhere is immune.
but, but Notre Dame has an awesome football team. Go Irish. /s
That’s because they are mostly socialists! The church backed the healthcare law, and amnesty for illegals.
The Democrat party is their religion.
The Catholic Church is just a place to go at Christmas and Easter.
How can these “Catholics” be so ignorant to basic Church doctrine? How can they be so obtuse?
Most of these “Catholic” universities ceased being “Catholic” years ago. They are exactly like most colleges in this country, a cesspool of liberal higher learning. 99% of the professors in colleges, no matter what type of college, are socialist to the core. You also do not have to identify yourself as a “Catholic” to teach at any university in the country. Would make a bet that REAL Catholic universities like Ave Maria and Franciscan University don’t have too many liberal professors like the rest of the “Catholic” in name only colleges. Most of them have dropped their health coverage because of Obamagabe’s HHS mandate.
Collectivists supporting TOTALITARIAN ALERT!
The faculty and staff own the changes coming down the pipeline for their universities. No whining or bitching when they hit.
The Catholic Church has always backed universal healthcare, but HAS SUED the Obamagabe administration for trying to make them provide abortion inducing drugs. I guarantee you that the Supreme Court rules in favor of religions liberty.
Well, if those colleges are Notre Dame, Georgetown, Boston College and Providence College, among others, it’s not surprising. They stopped being truly Catholic many years ago, opting for acceptance by those who consider themselves the ‘literati’, and who are almost exclusively liberal.
It ties into that social-justice mindset.
Many of the Catholic leaders, though they may have issues with the forced coverage of contraception and abortion under Obamacare, are still “down” with immigration amnesty, wealth redistribution, no death penalty, etc.
No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money."
Were they making a donation, or paying out protection money?
Over a billion Catholics worldwide. The Church must be doing
something right. There are more Catholics that all the protestant faiths combined. By the way what are they still protesting?
“The Democrat party is their religion.”
And government is their god. Revelation 13:11-12.
Authoritarians are birds of a feather.
Factor in that Catholic educators are as collectivist as their non-Catholic agitprop collaborators on the faculty at non-Catholic education organizations and one arrives at the inescapable conclusion: Catholicism is not an antidote to academentia.”
This is a blanket charge without many specifics. Anybody know about this source “campus reform” while it is desperately needed who runs it and its background.
