We are Catholics before we are Democrat, we are Catholics before we are Republican, we are even Catholics before we are Americans, Archbishop Chaput has also said in recent days, because we know that God has a demand on us prior to any government demand on us. For Catholics, he says, the issue of abortion requires ... loyalty to the Church prior to their political party.
The Democratic Party has gotten worse and worse& on life issues because Catholics have let them. Perhaps the Republicans are the ones not taking the Catholic vote for granted. The Democrats could get there, too, if Catholics and other people of faith, with a concern for America's soul, expected more -- a defense and protection of human dignity and its attendant freedoms. We could be on the verge of an awakening, a renewal of our union, however imperfect, cleansing it of the poisons of a culture of death and inauthenticity.
