    Yesterday I received an email with a “grassroots video” produced by Catholicvote.com.

    The video and website, Catholicvote.com were produced by Fidelis. They have very strong ties to the Republican Party and to the McCain campaign. In February of this year they issued a press release endorsing John McCain for president and their website includes articles from Deal Hudson who is an advisor to the McCain campaign as a member of the “Catholic Outreach Committee”. They have given campaign contributions only to republicans and even supported republican Senator Rick Santorum over Bob Casey, a pro-life Catholic democrat, during the 2006 election cycle.

    If you forward this video or link to the website in your official capacity you may be in violation of IRS regulations and Church policy. You will also be distributing materials that contradict Church teaching.

    Among other things, the video glorifies US economic and military power. This runs contrary to Catholic Social Teaching which emphasizes a preferential option for the poor and solidarity. It also runs contrary to the Cathecism which teaches us that “Respect for and development of human life require peace.”

    There is more than one intrinsic evil at issue this year. They include genocide, racism, torture, targeting non-combatants and engaging in unjust wars. They are all life issues and they all require our attention as Catholics.

    Whether we vote Republican or Democrat this year what defines us is that we are Catholic.

    Don’t let the political parties redefine what it means to be CATHOLIC.

    Vote the Common Good!

    Kathy,

    I’ve been thinking about your comment and I will be making a post soon.

    Richard, you might want to put your filter on the comment section. “Kathy” has been plaguing the blogosphere with this erroneous accusation, posting the exact same thing everywhere. It is absolutely not true. Most likely she’s an Obama campaign member, possibly a defected Catholic.Anyway you may want to moderate your comments to keep the kooks out. God bless. You’re doing good work. 🙂
