Neither presidential candidate’s platform fully aligns with Catholic teaching. Here are two letters calling them to reconsider positions that do not reflect the love of neighbor that is central to the Catholic perspective.
President Trump’s defense of the unborn is laudable, but his views and policies on immigration fail to adequately account for the human dignity of immigrants and must be re-examined.
Vice President Biden’s Catholic faith has shaped his care for the poor and marginalized, but his increasingly extreme political position on the issue of abortion must be reconsidered.
Catholics have no home in either major political party in the U.S., but that doesn’t mean that we should remove ourselves from politics but that we should go boldly into the breach.
As some Catholic leaders pick sides, the faithful should do their research, keep an open mind, and show the love of Christ in the midst of our divided politics.
