So…steering this back to the original topic, it makes no sense for a Catholic politician (or a politician of any faith for that matter) to vote for legislation against their personal beliefs.

Now, I understand that senators and representatives have a responsibility to vote in the manner which the constituents want but I think there should be some level of veto power by the senator or representative when an issue comes into conflict with morality.

Like Benedict said (kind of) in another topic – freedom of choice and freedom of conscience are all fine and dandy, but only if one has a properly formed conscience. <- mostly paraphrased <img loading=” title=”Wink” />
