1) The Catholic Alliance was formed by the Christian Coalition to draw [Roman] Catholics more fully into Christian right activism on issues such as fighting abortion and promoting government-funded school vouchers.
The group has a panel of [Roman] Catholic lay leaders, a staff in Washington, and a range of activities geared to [Roman] Catholic voters.
The alliance is part of an attempt by the Christian Coalition to boost its [Roman] Catholic membership from about 250,000 to at least 1 million by the year 2000. [Source: Long Island Catholic, September 13]
