Wisconsin Bishops: Faithful Citizenship Begins with Right to Life

More good news coming from U.S.: the bishops of Wisconsin have given strong guidance to the faithful in making their election decisions this November.  Recall that the New York bishops also did something similar.  This is very encouraging.

MILWAUKEE, Wisconsin, September 8, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – While voters should weigh several factors in choosing a candidate to support, the right to life is the most essential of all, said the Catholic bishops of Wisconsin in a pastoral letter on the U.S. bishops’ voters guide.

Entitled “A Letter to Catholics in Wisconsin on Faithful Citizenship,” the document addressed four themes: the right to life, the nature of marriage, the poor and dependent, and the environment. However, the bishops made clear that these were not “pick and choose” values, but were built on a hierarchy with the right to life as the most fundamental.

The letter was signed by Archbishop Jerome E. Listecki of Milwaukee; Bishop Robert C. Morlino of Madison; Bishop Peter F. Christensen, Superior; Bishop David L. Ricken of Green Bay; and Bishop William P. Callahan of La Crosse. (Source)
