Here's another FACT. Catholic leadership has been preaching single-issue opposition to Democrats since Roe v. Wade, and that issue has been their OPPOSITION to freedom of choice. They said to oppose Mondale, and Dukakis. They said to oppose Clinton, Gore, Kerry, and now Obama. You can never make a fanatic happy. They even opposed Carter, and Carter was adamantly against abortion. Screw them. They will always instruct church members to vote against Democrats, and members will ignore them like they have been for decades anyway.
The fact is that Catholics have a doctrine of "primacy of conscience", but the church leadership doesn't want its members to be able to think for themselves and exercise it. They demand that their followers march in lockstep with the pope even though there is NO EX CATHEDRA ruling on ABORTION, so their TEACHING IS NOT BINDING ON ANY CATHOLICS. Yep, the Catholic church is too chickenshit to make this an official policy, because they know it would be the nail in their coffin. So they do everything short of this, and this is the reason for the hysterics.
Unfortunately for the Catholic church, Obama has outmaneuvered them once again. He has given them a deal that makes real Catholic women, and non-catholics employed in these organizations as well, while technically being "revenue neutral". This makes the church look even more out-of-step than ever, and increases Obama's stature with moderates, independents, and women, who are the people disposed to vote for him anyway.
