Way to go, Catholic Answers! The California-based Catholic apologetics organization has a full-page ad in today’s USA Today to guide Catholics voters in voting Catholic. It lists five key issues, which Catholics should never vote in favor of, including: abortion, homosexual marriage, embryonic stem cell research, human cloning, and euthanasia. The ad contains the text of the controversial but successful ‘Voters’ Guide for Serious Catholics,’ the text of which can be seen on the organization’s website, www.catholic.com.
I have read this guide and shared it with friends. It is short, concise, and helpful in clarifying what the important issues are. My husband, Bill, and I plan to pass these out in our parish after Sunday Mass. Handing out information to parishioners seems to be much more effective than just leaving it in a rack. When you hand something to others with a friendly smile, they will almost always want to accept it – it is presented as a gift. Now, getting them to read it is an entirely different matter, but we will be praying about that.
