“A well-formed Christian conscience does not permit one to vote for a political program that contradicts fundamental contents of faith and morals. Some candidates and one party have even chosen some of these as their party’s or their personal political platform. To vote for someone in favor of these positions means that you could be morally ‘complicit’ with these choices which are intrinsically evil. This could put your own soul in jeopardy.”
–Wisconsin bishop David Ricken, from a letter published to 200+ parishes this week
It’s time to start taxing the churches, folks, especially the Mormons and the Roman Catholic Church, and any other church that wants to play politics.
As for faithful Catholics — what a despicable way to “persuade” believers how to vote. Why are you putting up with nonsense like this??
