Here’s the link to the new website for Catholics for Obama.
"We believe," they write, "that Senator Obama’s vision of seeking common ground and working towards the common good offers a unique opportunity to build a more just and humane society consistent with Catholic values. The usual Republican operatives like to cherry pick one or two issues that do not match up with Catholic teaching, but they fail to consider the holistic agenda of the candidate. Presented here are eight themes that stand out in Barack Obama’s policy agenda and resonate with essential tenets of Catholic Social Teaching."
As usual, when someone sends us the link to Catholics for McCain, we’ll post that, too.
