The Three Non-Negotiables

As a Catholic Man I am called to vote based on the faith and not of the world. The Pope while addressing the European People’s Party laid out 3 points. What I love abut the Church is that at no point does the Church endorse a candidate for any election. Sometimes a Parish Priest will jump into the fray but the Church as a whole, never. That is how the Church weathered 2000 years of politicians, civiliazations, and society changes. Here are the 3 non-negotiable:

  1. Protection of life in all its stages, from the first moment of conception until natural death.
  2. Recognition and promotion of the natural structure of the family – as a union between a man and a woman based on marriage – and its defense from attempts to make it juridically equivalent to radically different forms of union which in reality harm it and contribute to its destabilization, obscuring its particular character and its irreplaceable social role.
  3. The protection of the right of parents to educate their children.
