   New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - November 26, 2011, New Braunfels, Texas                                 HERALD-ZEITUNG.COM [ Saturday, November 26, 2011 | 7A  A growning, changing lobby for God  Bt'lievt’ if or not, |>olifi-ci.ins used to bo aWt* to assume that vvhon the U.S. Catholi( bishops spoke on an issue, that m(>,vnt that the nation's Catholic s harl spoken.  ihai was so micl-2()th ct'ntury.  Befor(' long. Catholic liberals — backed by Playboy's Hugh Hetner and others — vvould daVe to c reate a [iro-abortion-rights group called Catholics for Frec' Choice.  Before long, Arni‘ric an ( atholics vvould becomc' so dividc'd that traditionalists felt fhc' need to form a grou[) called f’riests for l.ifc'.  ( atholic s were» not th(> only belic'vers ro( keel by the earfhc]uakes of the l‘)i)()s and 70s.

The numbc'r ot organi-zations (vngagc'd in advocacy work linked to rc'li-gious issues has incrc*asfd fivcMold in tour clec.ules — from \7 in 1 ‘>70 to at IcMst 2 I 1 todav.

According to this IVw survey. Catholics of one strifM' or another ar(> behind one* oul of fivc^ (1 ()c'rcenti of advocacy groups with offices in Washington, [).( ., and evangelical Protc'stants support almost as many (18 p('r( ent).

Flertzke said; it's significant that the- largest c atm)-ry — one c|uarter of the gre)ups studie'cl — consists eilhc'^ of intc'rfaith groups or organizations that work on religious issues that involve believc'rs in multiple' faith traditions.
