US Hispanic Catholic group issues voter guide, highlights life issues
August 22, 2012
An American Catholic Hispanic group has issued a voters’ guide that places high priority on culture-of-life issues, and gives Mitt Romney a more favorable rating that President Barack Obama.
The Catholic Hispanic Leadership Alliance urges voters to consider issues such as abortion, same-sex marriage, embryonic stem-cell research, euthanasia, and religious freedom. The voters’ guide also encourages support for political candidates who promote educational choice, oppose torture and the death penalty, and have supported programs to help immigrants and the unemployed.
The Alliance voters’ guide faulted both major presidential candidates for failures to support the stands that the group considered best matched with Catholic teaching. However the guide gave a clear nod to Mitt Romney, saying that his positions match the guide's preferences 52% of the time, while President Obama scores only 17%.

Though not as good and comprehensive as Catholic Answer's Voter's Guide for Serious Catholics it appears to be better and more faithful to Catholic teaching than the USCCB's quadrennial loophole for voting for politicians who promote intrinsic evils.
