Thought for Election Eve: Vote for Life, Faith, and Family
"God [is] the Chief Actor, Who subjects nations to judgment according to their obedience or disobedience to the moral law." Fulton Sheen
Will you vote according to the standards of the world or will you look to the things of God to guide your vote? Priests for Life has a booklet called Voting with a Clear Conscience. Have a well-formed conscience on your duty to vote and the best way to carry it out. Fr. Pavone's advice is good and conforms to Church teaching. There are fundamental issues that must take precedence over others. Protecting human life from its very beginning is such an issue. If the right to life is not protected other lesser rights are meaningless. The right to food, decent housing, a job, etc. all depend on the first and fundamental right - the right to life. Those candidates like Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Barney Frank, Barbara Boxer, etc. who are champions of child killing should be disqualified from consideration by every believing Catholic. Just as you would not vote for a member of the KKK, you must not vote for those who believe in killing babies.
Vote Pro-Life on Tuesday, November 2!
