"I have my personal position, but..." Same old tune. Lack of commitment to truth, honor, the Church, and God. Imperfections are when you forget to say a prayer before a meal, arrive at Mass one minute late, say a nasty word to yourself in traffic. But to not stand against one of the greatest evils of our day in season or out, at work or not, in the public or the private forum, I think someone said something about sins of omission. Being a politician does not excuse from obeying the moral law.
