Wosey: Explain how you, as chancellor of England can obstruct these measures for the sake of your own private conscience.More: Well, I think when statesmen forsake their own private conscience for the sake of their public duties, they lead their country by a short route to chaos. (pauses) And we shall have my prayers to fall back on.Wolsey: (smiling) Hmm....you'd like that wouldn't you - to govern the country with prayer.More: (seriously) Yes I should.
Wolsey: I'd like to be there when you try.
Since John Kennedy became the first Catholic president, we've seen many Catholic politicians put affairs of the state above their duties to God. Kennedy assured the voters he would never let his faith interfere with his politics. John Kerry, advocate for abortion, did the same when he ran for president in 2004. Catholic Democrats constantly assure us that deep-sixing their faith to champion moral evils is no problemo. And they prove it by their sacrilegious Communions, their slander and detraction and their commitment to advancing repugnant moral evils.

It would be good to remind them of another scene in A Man for All Seasons. Wolsey is being brought back to London to the Tower, but his entourage stops at an abbey since the cardinal is dying. His last words in the film are similar to the real words he spoke on his deathbed. These were recorded by historians:
“If I had served God as diligently as I have done the King, he would not have given me over in my grey hairs.”
Let us not be like Cardinal Wolsey and put the will of man above the will of God. For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul?
