Catholic archbishop’s talk to center on social justice issues and the election

October 20, 2008


Catholic Archbishop Joseph Naumann is scheduled to speak at the Dole Institute of Politics at 7 p.m. Tuesday.

The Kansas City, Kan., archbishop attracted news coverage earlier this year when he called on Gov. Kathleen Sebelius to refrain from taking Communion until she changes her stance in favor of abortion rights.

The forum is sponsored by the St. Lawrence Catholic Campus Center, and will focus on social justice issues in the coming election. The public is invited to the free event.

A question and answer session will follow Naumann's speech.

Interesting that that rather nondemocratic entity has so much to say about the American democratic process.

If the church wants to be political, remove their tax exemption.

I don't need to hear him speak. I read what he wrote in the Leaven and I found it appalling. According to the Bishop none of us who vote for a pro-choice candidate are true Catholics. I suppose I need to stop going to mass since I'm not really welcome.

Bishop Naumann is correct in saying that anyone who votes for a pro-choice candidate is not a true Catholic. I would even go further to say that you could not even consider yourself a Christian. The bible and the words of our Lord and Savior are very clear about the sanctity of life and especially children in or outside of the womb. This life is only a second when compared to eternity. Once we have left this life, how many regrets will we have. Think carefully before you vote. The Catholic Church never tells you who to vote for. The Church gives you guide lines to form your conscience according to Christ. The choice is up to you. God Bless!
