“Conscience at the Polls”

As you prepare for voting in November you might find an article by Professor Emily Reimer-Barry entitled “Conscience at the Polls” (8/19/2020) helpful.

Professor Reimer-Barry chairs the Department of Theology and Religious Studies at the University of San Diego, California. She discusses moral decision-making of Catholics in the voting process, noting that neither political party in the US aligns perfectly with authentic Catholic teaching on every issue.

Therefore, Professor Reimer-Barry points out, Catholics “should attend to a broad range of data, including not only campaign promises and current threats to the common good, but also the candidate’s character, virtues and vices.”
