Voting Catholic

Over at Evangelical Catholicism blog is a 3 part-er on "Catholic Social teaching - What Catholics need to know before voting."

This isn't a post on who you should vote for or what you should vote for. It is meant to inform the catholic conscience. I know people get a little touchy if they think you're filling out their ballots for them.

This is no such thing. Just as one would read up on the election material or sit in front of the TV and be bombarded with election commercials, we as Catholics need to step back from the secular info and take stock of our catholic identity. We need to review our catholic teachings. We don't' check our Catholicity at the voting booth door.

These posts are indeed a good review of the catholic social teachings. Please read them.
