Since lots of our readers are interested in this topic, vis-a-vis our new president, here is Russell Shaw writing about FOCA. (If you’re up on this, you’ll know what it is. If not, get up on it.) In Our Sunday Visitor’s blog, the Daily Take. Shaw, former spokesman for the USCCB and author of many books, says FOCA may be a pro-choice fundraising tool, but it’s also a ’serious threat.’ He responds to recent here to recent arguments made by Former US Ambassador to the Holy See Thomas Melady, the law professor Douglas Kmiec and the commentator E.J. Dionne.
And once again, when commenting on these issues, remember no ’ad hominem’ arguments please. The motto of our magazine is ’Veritatem Facientes in Caritate.’ Doing the truth with love, or, in this case, charity.
