Democrats can’t be Christians?

Asked by the Huffington Post about comments at a recent forum suggesting that Democrats should not be Catholics, state Senate candidate Steve Fitzgerald (in photo) of Leavenworth even went further: “Christ said marriage is between one man and one woman, and the Democratic platform said that it’s not true. So therefore, my point was that one cannot support the Democratic platform and be a follower of Christ,” Fitzgerald said. He is the GOP challenger to state Sen. Kelly Kultala, D-Kansas City. Referring to his intended advice to Democrats, Fitzgerald told Huffington Post: “My actual message was ‘fix the party or leave.’” Kultala, who is Catholic, recalled that at the meeting of the Polish American Democratic Club, “I was so angry I was seeing spots.” She also told Huffington Post: “He does not have the right to dismiss my faith because it is not the same as his. He’s trying to make it sound that you are only truly faithful if you are a right-wing Republican. That’s not right.”
