These threads about voting are getting exhausting.
Quite honestly, it’s a stretch to claim that an informed Catholic can consciously vote for a party or candidate that supports grave moral permissions which are clearly against Church teaching - even if it’s not their sole intent to “go against” Church teaching.
Ultimately, it has to do with the reluctance by the Church to tell people that they’re wrong, and fear of ruffling the feathers of those whose positions are most frequently echoed by the media and secular culture.
Hypothetical litmus test: replace “abortion” with “slavery” - could the same claim be made that, “Candidate X supports someone’s right to own a slave, but that is not the issue I’m voting for! Everything else Candidate X stands for is great, so I can vote for them!”
Abortion, gender theory, unnatural marriage, etc. are moral issues that have been repeated as “goods” in the media so much that many people have become desensitized to their evils. A certain party supports these issues much more than the other. This certain party is also still, for some unknown reason, considered the party of “the poor” or the “working man,” but their track record and cooperation with ultra-rich elites proves the opposite.
