Wisconsin Bishops: Texas Priest
Preface: (In pursuit of the truth – www.cinopsbegone.com. – Tuesday, September 14, 2010)
It is understandable that both the bishops and the priest are concerned about our mindset on voting. It doesn’t matter what your political registration is. We just can’t vote blindly and stupidly. For example, if a politician voted for legislation that promotes promiscuity, adultery and pornography; what do we do? On November 2nd, we vote him out of office.
Well what’s the difference between the above and someone who is in a political party that promotes abortion on demand (infanticide), same-sex marriage and embryonic stem-cell research? There is no difference. Let’s listen to common sense and the pleas of the bishops and priest.
1.) Entitled: “A Letter to Catholics in Wisconsin on Faithful Citizenship,” the document addressed four themes, the right to life, the nature of marriage, poor and the dependent, and the environment.

4.) “First and foremost, the right to life of every human person – from conception to natural death … “Faith teaches and human reason confirms that human life is not a privilege bestowed on us by others, but rather a right that society must recognize and protect…
5.) The bishops indicated that marriage ‘”between a man and a woman” needs to be defende3d for the health of children and society. Marriage they said is established by the creator as the foundation of the family, which in turn becomes the first and vital cell of society. Due to its service to life, including the procreation and necessary formation of new citizens, marriage is a social – not just a sacred – good that government needs to recognize, encourage & protect.
A. El Paso, Texas, Aug. 3, 2010 /06:01 (CNA)-
Warning of the possibility of a corrupt democracy, Texas priest Fr. Michael Rodriguez has written that Catholics have the “absolute duty” to oppose abortion and all government attempts to legalize same-sex unions.
B. The parish priest of El Paso’s San Juan Bautista Church, Fr. Rodriguez published a short essay in the Sunday El Paso Times urging all Catholics to take the teachings of the Church to heart. Every Catholic out of “fidelity to charity and truth,” must oppose “the murder of unborn babies” and the legalization of homosexual unions.”...
