Holy Voting


July 18-25 Podcast

Nicholas P. Cafardi of Duquesne University talks about voting and holiness.
How can a Catholic balance the demands of voting with the Christian call to holiness? Nicholas P. Cafardi, dean emeritus and professor of the Duquesne University School of Law, discusses his article in the current issue of America, "Keep Holy Election Day," explaining why the values of holiness and conscientious citizenship need not be contrary. He also addresses the controversy surrounding the passage of same-sex marriage legislation in New York state and the dilemma it posed for Catholic politicians.
