The Catholic Vote

I am not Catholic. But, I married one and my wife and I are raising our two sons Catholic. Below is a very powerful issue ad. It does not support one candidate or the other and, in fact, treats the candidates absolutely identically.

If you consider yourself Catholic...if you truly consider yourself Catholic...I don't see how your vote could be at issue. For more information or to embed or share the video with others go to CatholicVote.com.

  1. Amazing. What a powerful video. I'm not Catholic, I'm a Christian. The values are fundamentally the same.

    The liberals are hacking away at our families. Taking our ability to be parents away from us, bit by bit. Corrupting our children in school. Slowly taking morals out of the mainstream media, TV, radio, et al.

    It's time to stand up and take our Country back (not a referrance to violence). One nation under GOD! At least it used to be.

    I fear for the future our children have to face. When polar bears are more important than their unborn sibling.

    "If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace." –Thomas Paine

    That was a very powerful video. It actually reminded me very much of what I admired (as a non-Catholic) about the Catholic university I attended. I was particularly drawn to the final line - "Vote your Conscience".

    As I understand it, Catholics think of conscience as that little bit of God within each of us, guiding us toward God and away from sin (i.e. separation from God). That direct experience of God's guidance is something that each individual person has to listen for, and learn to hear, and work at following, each day. The Church can help to guide and teach; but ultimately, it's the responsibility of each individual to listen to the voice of conscience inside themselves and act from that.

    The true beauty of this ad, then, was that it really didn't tell anyone how specifically to vote. I suspect that Don's comment - about seeing only one way to vote if you "truly" consider yourself Catholic - actually misses the point about conscience entirely. The point of conscience is that people have a CHOICE, and are best served by being FREE both to listen to their conscience and to make that choice. It's a gut-wrenching state of affairs for we mortals, but that's the funny ol' universe we live in. And really, if we don't like people having choices, isn't that something we should be taking up with God?

    Anyway, this ad strikes me as being strongly pro-choice AND strongly pro-life - which is, I suspect, where most people stand on the issue. I think it's a shame that the discussions I usually see and hear about it are rather more polarized than that. Does that make me "liberal" for being nuanced or "conservative" for respecting the true nature of the universe God gifts us? Or is "liberal" v "conservative" just another polarization that leads people of conscience farther from their God?

    Regards, and thank you for placing the ad where I stumbled across it.

    May I ask how do you Americans react? just because, I am Italian (born and live in Italy!) all my family is Catholic, I was raised as one...and all my Counrty has very strong Catholic foundations. But, every time the Pope (who is in Rome..Italy) says anything about politics, people of the Left-party (and comunists) complain and say he should shut up! Dou you have this big deal in America too?
