In what's shaping up to be the most important election in our lifetimes (in my opinion), we are getting bombarded by information from TV, radio, newspapers and the internet. I find it overwhelming at times trying to follow the latest news and lipstick talk, but lucky for us there are some great sites out there with good solid information like - www.CatholicVote.com. Spend a couple of minutes watching the movie below and you'll get fired up about your faith and this election! Help spread the word!

    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.

  • Kathy posted her ethical concern about Fidelis' "strong ties" to the Republican Party and the McCain campaign without mentioning that she herself is the blog commenter at large for Roman Catholics For Obama. For obvious reasons, this beautiful prolife video you posted here is a real thorn in their side!

  • This is an astonishing turn of events. The video being produced by a religious group that supports mccain, then criticized by a woman who claims equality is important but she herself is the main blog commenter for a group of catholics that support obama. Contradictory decency is at stake
