To the Catholic Sentinel:

Like all my fellow American Catholics, I too have many concerns for our nation’s future but I find it very disconcerting that many believe the Republican Party is the answer to our prayers.

Our country’s leadership positions are controlled by two parties that do not subscribe to our Catholic theology. They include Biden and Ryan whose policies are against Church teachings but claim to be practicing Catholics.
I cannot condemn or shame any Catholic for voting for either party since both choices are severely lacking and our choices are limited. 

What this country needs are more choices and we need to stop re-electing the same people who continue to focus on party priorities (think third party and replace the long standing incumbent). During this Year of Faith, I implore everyone to pray for a change of heart in our elected officials and ask God to bless our leaders.
