Additional Information on Catholic Democrats


* CD has condemned conservative clerics who have sought “to use Communion as a political weapon” by denying participation in that sacrament to Democratic Catholic lawmakers who support abortion rights.

* In March 2011, CD’s organizational website published “The Common Good vs. the Tea Party,” an article wherein Center for American Progress senior fellow Fred Rotondaro condemned conservatives for allegedly seeking to balance the U.S. budget “on the backs of the poor and vulnerable” while endorsing tax subsidies for the oil industry and promoting unfair “tax cuts for the wealthiest.”

* Among CD’s noteworthy supporters are Democratic Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro and actor/activist Martin Sheen.
