Uncle SAm Wants You To Vote CatholicAccording to the United States Catholic Bishops’ comprehensive statement, Living the Gospel of Life, Catholics are “to embrace their citizenship not merely as a duty and privilege, but as an opportunity meaningfully to participate in building the culture of life. Every voice counts. Each act of responsible citizenship is an exercise of significant individual power.”

We share in the good and evil of those we place in office.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches that, although “sin is a personal act, we have a responsibility for the sins committed by others when we cooperate in them.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church #1868)

Catholics! Vote Your Conscience!
