Post Dispatch Letters and Editor's Note

Readers respond to archbishop's letter on voting and sin
We received 124 letters this week in response to Archbishop Raymond L. Burke's letter on Catholics' voting obligations. A total of 82 letters were critical of him; 34 supported him; 8 could not be classified.
An interesting bit of information is provided by the Post Dispatch. This means that about 27% of the letters were supportive of the Archbishbishop, a statistic which closely corresponds to that provided by Margaret Sullivan in her letter here stating that only about 25% of Catholics attend Mass regularly on Sunday.

In today's Letters section, five of the seven letters show support for, or agreement with, the Archbishop.
