How Do You Deal With Republicans Who Think You're Secular Because You Are A Democrat? [View all]

I received a Facebook message recently from one of my relatives. She is a devout Catholic, and is also a big Republican. In the message, she simply wrote "I am disappointed because I thought you stood for what our Faith teaches?". Quite honestly, I was a little bit insulted at the characterization that, because I am a Democrat, I am somehow "less of a Catholic" than she is. I attend church every week and pray every day.

How do you deal with such characterizations?
