As far as the Catholic comment is concerned, the fastest growing religious group in Central and Latin America are the Pentecostal Christians. Even Mormonism (is that a word) is growing at faster rates in Central and South America than Catholicism.

Their numbers are still small, compared to those who claim to be Catholics, but they are growing at a very fast rate neverthless. Also, Pentacostal Hispanics tend to be more committed to their religious beliefs than Catholic Hispanics are, and are far more conservative.

Old line Hispanics (mainly Mexican-Americans and Puerto Ricans) tend to be lean more towards the Dems. They still remember all that stuff from the 60's.

Newer arrivals, OTOH, have not fallen into the Dem's fold--not yet anyway. Hence the Reps efforts to recruit them.

From my vantage POV, I think that both Dems and Reps have no clue about what is going on in the Hispanic community. But then again, American politicians have generally blundered in Central and South America--sometimes with disastrous consequences to America's own best self interest.

Hispanics are not a monolithic group and politicians, and others, who view them as a homogenous group, do so at great peril.
I meant no disrespect to Hispanics but I sure did mean to heap disrespect on The Republicans and Democrats, who will say damned near anything to wheedle a bloc of votes.

Yep, the largest growing religion among hispanics (and most other Christian ethnicities) are the various Pentecostalists. But even so, Roman Catholicism still far outnumbers all of the other groups.

The degree to which which the Hispanics (recognizing that there are multiple nationalities and ethnicities involved) vote Republican will probably have more to do with alienation by the two parties rather than attraction.

Sorry, I got excited, but I did remember to put a period at the end of my sentence, unlike you.

I thought he was one of the models.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

I had a whole bunch of nit picking responses to your post Mr. Hawking, but I decided against submitting them. This has been fun for me, and I hope for you as well, but I'm afraid that it might get even farther out of hand then it has, and one or both of us might get PO'ed. I'll let you have the last word, I'm calling it quits……….. At least for this thread…...
