The group “Catholics for Obama” just released a letter of support claiming, “We are Catholics from diverse backgrounds and experiences committed to the re-election of President Obama.” Prominent among the “we” is Sister Jamie Phelps, the director of black studies at Xavier University of New Orleans.  If her name sounds familiar, it’s because she is a frequent collaborator with and speaker for the Social Action office of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, which under longtime director Tony Stieritz is little more than the local branch office for Catholics for Obama.
