“Politicians who say they personally oppose abortion, but then don’t work to change the laws in order to protect unborn life, are examples of the most damaging kind of secularism.  Their faith life has virtually no effect on their public service.”  (Archbishop Charles Chaput; Living the Catholic Faith, p.69) Print this entry
