The media storm revolving around the election is relentless. Add in religious liberty issues and Catholics have a real opportunity to voice opinions that reflect Church teachings.
In the Voting Booth: A Catholic Perspective, walks Catholics through the important responsibility of voting in light of one's Catholic conscience.
The pamphlet answers the questions most on people's minds:
--Does the Church tell me who should I vote for?
--What are the key principles that should be guiding me as I enter the voting booth?
--How does my Catholic Faith help me to make these choices?
--What about the separation of Church and State?
--If no single party or candidate in a given election conforms to our important Catholic principles, what am I to do?
Voting with a Catholic conscience is hard work and support from parish and diocesan staffs is imperative to move people along the continuum of knowledge - both of their faith as well as the national issues.
