  1. Conversion to “Catholicism” can mean conversion to the ultra-right views of the ultra-reactionary and pro-predatory capitalism of the Action Society, based in Wisconsin. Paul Ryan is one of their darlings, as is the corrupt Gov, Scott. These conversions can have very little to do with Catholic teaching on compassion and the cherishing of all people and may involve a complete rejection of catholic social teaching as non-binding and wrong. These conversions can be more political than religious.
