Not one issue among many. Not one issue among many. Not one issue among many. Not one issue among many. Not one issue among many.
WHAT’S SO DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND?!
The nation’s Catholic bishops have released an updated version of their voter’s guide that calls on Catholics to make abortion the central point when considering which candidate to support in next year’s presidential elections.
The guide, Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship is nearly identical to the bishops’ guide published four years ago and it calls abortion “evil” throughout the document and says Catholics should give the highest priority to protecting unborn children and supporting candidates who will back such protections.
“The direct and intentional destruction of innocent human life is always wrong and is not just one issue among many,” the document says.
“As Catholics we are not single-issue voters,” the bishops wrote in the guide. “A candidate’s position on a single issue is not sufficient to guarantee a voter’s support. Yet a candidate’s position on a single issue that involves an intrinsic evil, such as support for legal abortion or the promotion of racism, may legitimately lead a voter to disqualify a candidate from receiving support.”
That means slowing the rate of growth in the federal budget isn’t equal to tearing babies apart limb from limb. Can you imagine that? Huh, who’d a thunk it?
