The US Catholic Bishops have done little to nothing to help Catholics discern a clear political path in the United States. Their so-called “voters guide” (Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship) has been a weak document that does more to confuse Catholics than help guide them. For this reason I’m taking it upon myself, as a simple Catholic layman, to try to give other Catholic laity some good direction that actually makes sense!
For Catholics in the United States, the number one issue facing our nation, our people, and our faith is ABORTION. This has been the case for nearly 50 years, and it will remain the case for the long-term foreseeable future. Every pope for the last half century (Paul VI, St. John Paul II, Benedict XVI, and Francis) has militantly declared abortion the greatest evil of our time and the most preeminent issue facing Catholic voters.
