Bishop Morlino Speaks On The Laity And Church Social Teaching
Madison, Wisconsin Bishop Robert C. Morlino offers an important and profound corrective to the recent hijacking of Catholic Social Teaching by political hacks and religious frauds.Excerpt:
“It is not for the bishop or priests to endorse particular candidates or political parties. Any efforts on the part of any bishop or priest to do so should be set aside. And you can be assured that no priest who promotes a partisan agenda is acting in union with me or with the Universal Church.
“It is the role of bishops and priests to teach principles of our faith, such that those who seek elected offices, if they are Catholics, are to form their consciences according to these principles about particular policy issues.”
