If a Catholic candidate is on record in support of evil laws and organizations, either personally or by affiliation with a political party whose official platform supports these, he has a moral obligation to recant, abandon the party if he cannot immediately change it, and do whatever is within his power to correct any damage he has caused.
This begins with the most fundamental of rights, the right to life, and that right being safeguarded in all times and circumstances to the weakest and most vulnerable – the unborn. To say that there are more pressing moral and social issues that plague our country is to completely miss the point; poisoning the river at its source poisons the lake into which it flows.There is a hierarchy of moral issues, and so a grave error on the fundamental right to life poisons how all life is regarded and demands correction, especially from a Catholic who has been given the power or influence from God, the source of all authority, to attempt to do so.
Amen. As Fr. James Altman said previously, you cannot be a Catholic and a Democrat. The party is so corrupt at this point and so committed to diabolical evil, that it is pretty much beyond help. In 2012, the party platform failed to include God. When an amendment was introduced at the Democrat convention to include God in the platform, as well as recognizing Jerusalem as the capitol of Israel, anyone listening could tell the voice vote was evenly split. The party heads clearly wanted the amendments passed and, despite the necessity of a 2/3rds vote, the chair declared the ayes had it. They did not! At that point many delegates booed. A meagre reference to "God-given potential" was unwelcome by about half the delegates. Including the amendment in the platform was pious posturing opposed by many in the hall.
If the Democrats have a god, it's the god Moloch to whom pagan nations, and even the Israelites (including Ahaz) fed their children. Biden and the Democrats worship that same god every time they promote the murder of babies in the womb. Fr. Saguto warns Catholics not to cooperate with evil, a serious sin:
[Biden] publicly claims that abortion is the law of the land and that he will do all he can to make sure it stays that way; therefore, any Catholic who supports him, or aligns oneself with a political party that supports him, would be in proximate cooperation with evil and would commit a grave sin, regardless if someone says he or she is “personally opposed to it” also.
The stance on life is not a disagreement in perspective or approach between political parties.
It is a moral absolute that admits no compromise, and is the issue that must rise to the top on election day. Abortion, which is the ugly daughter of a contraceptive and divorce-happy culture, must be eradicated, along with its own ugly daughters of pornography, prostitution, sex trafficking, and child exploitation.
Catholics, how many of our shepherds have to tell you the truth like Isaiah told Ahaz before you listen? Will you play pious games to justify an evil vote for a man committed to sins that cry to heaven for vengeance?
