What's a Catholic to do?
My thoughts on the presidential election
Tonight I watched the Presidential debate. I really enjoyed the town-hall set up of things, and I drew some good points from the debate.
Here are my thoughts. Catholics wonder who to vote for. I would love to be old enough to vote - missed it by just nine months this presidential term vote. But if I were to vote, here are my thoughts:
1) Obama has supported a woman's right to abortion. Obama has supported legalizing
2) The Catholic Church knows that abortion is a moral evil.
The Catholic Church does not support homosexual marriages.
3) I'm a
Catholic. So I side with my mother Church. So I (would) vote for Romney.
In my dad's words:
"As I think about this week's Mass
readings and the upcoming election I have come to conclusion. Those Roman
Catholics who voted for President Obama and are going to do so this year, you
are spiritually dishonest. President Obama is pro-abortion, pro gay marriage and
pushed the HHS Mandate on the Catholic Church(some Protestants also). So how do
you sit in Mass every Sunday and listen to teachings that you personally oppose.
Hypocrite comes to mind. The Church doesn't force you to stay. Their are 30,000
denominations that preach your values. You obviously aren't worried about
obedience. The Roman Catholic Church isn't a democracy. Never will be. So don't
continue being luke warm. Either you are obedient to the Church or you are not.
Your souls are at stake."
What are your thoughts on the presidential election?
God bless you all!
