What is your problem with this? It is a letter from a Bishop. You have your priorities, I have mine. For me keeping my eye on the ball is following Catholic teaching! It isn't either-or, it is all...religious freedom, abortion, etc. We need to vote against intrinsic evil.
I agree Wendy! And, 'Pray'! My Mom has the 'Today Show' and mainstream election news on 24/7, and she has gone from considering to vote for Romney after the Clint Eastwood speech a few weeks ago, to believing the Democratic 'lies' about him, and becomming very against him and Pro Obama again ! Iv'e pretty much been a Democratic Voter (The little I have actually voted ) until this current election. Although, I do not favor, nor promote the Mormon religion; I do promote life and freedom of religion ! This, I'm greatful to realize due to other Pro life - Romney posts on Catholic Match forums, as well as EWTN. I have definately converted to Republican for good! I may be in the 'lower' income range, but I'm not going to compromise my spiritual and religious freedom; or that of my fellow brothers for any person or government. Also, my Mom says that she 'knows' what is going on with the election and the type of people and the policies of our president elects because she watches the news continuously, although she has not turned on EWTN in months (years) That is where I learned of Obamas measure to have healthcare plans required to cover contraception, which could 'End' Catholic charities to say the least!! We Catholic Christians need to pray and evangalize for Life (Romney) on this election! God Bless!
Good for you Keith Maybe when you visit your mom, you can switch on EWTN. It sounds like you will be able to witness to her!
