O’Donnell on how Catholics actually support LGBT equality, including same-sex marriage

Great commentary from Lawrence O’Donnell on Catholics and LGBT issues. He wants pundits to use facts when talking about Catholics, not to keep saying Catholics are more conservative than the general population. O’Donnell made it clear, “From this point forward, that every time you hear a pundit say that, you are hearing someone who does not know what he’s talking about, does not know who he is talking about.” O’Donnell nails it. I grew up in a very Catholic family as is my partner. I know a thing or two about Catholics. I know the problem isn’t American Catholics, it’s the Catholic hierarchy. And, it’s the politicians and pundits who listen only to those leaders.

This latest poll from the Public Religion Research Institute, to which O’Donnell refers, can be found here.
