An authentic Catholic view of public policy does not pit “pro-Life/pro-marriage” Catholics against “social justice” Catholics. We are BOTH. In public policy, we make distinctions and recognize that some issues are a priority because they lay the foundation for all others. These issues are the protection of human life, religious liberty and the crucial importance of marriage between one man and one woman as the cornerstone of the family, the “domestic church.”
Flowing from our priority issues we take on other important points of policy for our Church and society, further pursuing our call to serve as Catholics.
