Catholic Vote

Dear Editor: I have a response to Maria Mastromarino (Letters to the Editor, Oct. 29: Catholics should not be single-issue voters). 

Our issues are the teachings of Jesus Christ and His Church. Here are some guidelines for how I think Catholics should vote. 

Ask yourself the following questions: 

  • Which candidate supports policies the Church has identified as intrinsic evils? 
  • Which party supports items of interest to the Church like religious freedom, school choice, free speech? 
  • Who has a record of truth and transparency? 
  • Who supports the fullness of human sexuality as taught by the Church? 
  • Who supports the sanctity of the family, the elderly, and marriage? 
  • Who supports personal responsibility? 
  • Who takes you further from God? 

New York has an opportunity this year to actually effect change.
