"Of course abortion is still legally practiced in the US dispite 8 years of GWB's reign.
So you tell me which is worse... someone with real integrity who believes something different than you, or someone who says they agree with you but then demonstrates through his actions that he is a hypocrite?"
The president is not a dictator. He is only 1 branch of the government. He cannot do whatever he likes to, unless he has the support of the other branches. Bush appointed multiple pro-life judges to the court which is all he really can do.
And once again, morality does not have to come from religion. And by the way, the Christian church doesn`t say that everyone who doesn`t believe in Christ goes to hell. If you are a moral person, you go to heaven.

More made-up bullsh*t, I see.
"...and those Catholics who do so place themselves outside of the full communion of Christ's Church and under the judgment of divine law."
If God really gave as much a sh*t as you claim he does, padre, he would descend from the sky (which is just as likely as him ascending from the ground, in my opinion; given the grander context of the whole friggin` universe, our `up` means nothing at all) and make a statement about it. Why doesn`t it *feel* as if I`m under divine law, padre? Because I don`t believe in fairy tales.
The whole faith story has only as much merit as one ascribes to it, and no amount of fear or guilt you have to instill in it to make people believe it will make it any more true, which is fortunate. Now stop wasting time and the people`s money and go do something tangible for a change.
