Did Catholic voters hate John Kerry in 2004?

Here's another article pushing the conventional wisdom that religious voters hate Democrats (although fortunately not Barack Obama).

From Newsweek's "On Faith" column:
Catholics and evangelicals don't hate Obama. In other words, he's no Kerry or Dukakis.
Wait a minute. Catholic voters hated John Kerry? Let's check those numbers again:
Bush 52% Kerry 47% - Catholic voters
Bush 51% Kerry 48% - All voters
So Catholic voters broke along virtually the same numbers as the country as a whole did. Where's the hatred in that?
