Bishop Seitz: Single-issue voting has corrupted Christian political witness
October 05, 2020
CWN Editor's Note: “For far too long, in pursuit of ‘single-issue’ strategies to end abortion, many Christians have scandalously turned a blind eye to real breakdowns in solidarity and dehumanizing policies, including crackdowns on worker rights and voting rights, the slashing of social support for the poor and sick, racism and the exploitation of immigrants and the environment,” the bishop of El Paso said. He added that President Trump “has undermined the foundational importance of religious liberty with actions like travel bans targeting Muslims” and that “his administration has encouraged the worst expressions of nativism.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).

As usual with this prelate, he drags out the straw man falsehood of a "single-issue" voter. What kind of fools does he take us for? Blinded by hatred, as are many Democrats in public life, he lashes out at the bogeyman Trump in order to sooth an apparently guilty conscience. If there were such a thing as a "single-issue" Catholic voter, it would be an uninformed, irresponsible beast indeed. But not to worry, those he opposes will continue to support Christ and the U.S. Constitution without fear.
