Patrick Carolan insightful Election 2020 observations
Patrick Carolan visited with Politics Done Right to discuss a few important issues. He explains why Election 2020 is all about hope versus hatred in a recent article he wrote, “USA: This election, the choice is simple – hope or hatred,” where he writes the following.
We are in the last days of a long arduous process to determine what direction the USA will be traveling the next four years.
As I have written in the past, this election is about determining who we are, both as a nation and as a people of faith. This is especially true for Catholics.
Our church is divided between those priests and bishops who believe that abortion is the only issue and the sole reason on how we as Catholics should vote, and bishops and priests who believe that abortion is one issue among many and as Bishop McElroy has said, “Because our nation is in a moment of political division and degradation in its public life, character represents a particularly compelling criterion for faithful voting in 2020.”
Character is somewhat elusive to define. A candidate who changes his position based on new information can be described by some as strong, open and confident and as a ‘flip-flopper’ by others.
If we look to scripture as a guide, Jeremiah 22:3 tells us: “Do what is just and right. Rescue from the hand of the oppressor, the one who has been robbed. Do no wrong or violence to the foreigner, the fatherless or the widow, and do not shed innocent blood in this place.”
The entire podcast is worth a a watch/listen. And the article is well worth the read.
