I think religion shapes our values, morality and conscience which leads us to choose those candidates that best meet those standards (it should but that’s not always the case). Also, as Catholics, we have an obligation to vote for the candidate that will promote the best for the common good and therefore, our religion [b:3lklhx4k]should[/b:3lklhx4k] have a tremendous impact on our voting.
My question is how can I vote for the current candidates? On one hand, have Kerry who clearly supports non-negotiable issues for Catholics such as abortion, embryonic stem-cell research and homosexual marriage. And on the other hand, we have Bush who lead America to believe that there were WMD in Iraq though ,there proved to be none, but still claims that it was the right thing to do and would do nothing different making the war possibly unjust!
