This is why I’ve decided now, that if someone asks me what my political party is, I’m going to say, “My political party is the Catholic Church.” I tried to get enough signatures 2 years ago to run for Congress as an independent. I didn’t have the time, resources, or the manpower to do so, however.
Regardless, I would suggest that we remember that we are Catholics first, our called vocation (most of us being married persons) second, and Americans third - our priorties (in this order) are to (1) the Trinity and the Church founded by Jesus Christ (and trying to attract others through our words and deeds to the Trinity and the Church for the salvation of their souls), (2) our spouses and children (if married), (3) our country.
If we place the platform of a political party above the teachings of the Church, then we have rejected God’s plan for our own human plans. Our thinking should be instead. “Such and such is the teaching of the Church. How is the best way to implement this teaching in our country?”
