"A good Catholic meddles in politics."
Who are Pope Francis Voters?
Faith does not fit neatly into the secular institution of political parties. And still, we are called to be engaged in politics. This is no small feat. As Pope Francis says, "Following Jesus means swimming against the tide, renouncing evil and selfishness." Our nation is in a spiritual crisis, and our faith and patriotism compel us to speak clearly and to act.
Catholics are called to defend, promote, and protect the sacredness of human life. We cannot be single issue voters. Instead, we must be Pope Francis Voters. The sacred issues the Pope asks us to bring into the voting booth include protecting people in poverty, the elderly, and migrants and rejecting racism. Prayerful consideration of the candidates for President make it clear: Catholics cannot be true to their faith and vote for Donald Trump in November.
