Long-time readers of this blog likely know that we believe in freedom of con- science, and that we hold no ill will toward anyone whose world-view does not include religious sentiment. If that describes you, please feel free to move along the information highway; this post isn't for you. I have no interest in changing your mind or arguing. But if you are a person of faith, its worth your time to read the letter written by the Bishop of Green Bay, Wisconsin
. In his letter, Bishop Ricken addresses why Christians should choose political candidates whose views are consistent with Christian principles. While the letter is brief, it is interesting and food for thought.
Since I'm not a Catholic, I've posted some earlier advice on voting from John Wesley, the founder of Methodism.
