What a joy it is to witness the unified and forceful way in which the Catholic Bishops of the United States are speaking with regard to the upcoming election! In every statement I have seen so far, the bishops are emphasizing the “non-negotiable” issues that adorn the Democratic Party and Obama’s platform. While I am not a Democrat, I am also not a Republican because parties are too fickle and neither represents my beliefs appropriately. In spite of this, it seems that in general, one party is clearly the lesser of 2 evils here. It should also be noted that there are exceptions to this rule, as there are a few truly pro-life Democrats, and a few pro-abortion Republicans.

However, unless you are living under a rock, if you are a Catholic, you should by now be aware of the gravity of this election. You should also be aware of the non-negotiable issues and where each candidate stands on these issues. If not, then it would seem that you are not an informed voter, which is not a good thing to be.

Here is a sample of the public statements made by some of our Bishops recently:

Bishop Morlino (Also, a good conversation about the topic on Relevant Radio)
Archbishop Lori
Archbishop Chaput
Bishop Paprocki
Archbishop Gomez
