Catholic Voting Principles

October 20th, 2012, by Fr. Shawn P. Tunink

Here is a half hour show that I did for Catholic radio on principles that Catholics need to be aware of as we enter the voting booth.


Topics Covered Include

  • What is conscience?
  • How do I form my conscience?
  • Can my conscience be wrong?
  • Prudential Judgement
  • Intrinsic Evils
  • Being a “Single Issue” Voter
  • Solidarity, Subsidiarity, and Care for the Poor

We have a duty as Catholics to participate in the political process so as to help bring about the common good for all people. Participation means not only voting, but being an informed voter. As Catholics this includes making sure that we form our consciences well as true disciples of Jesus. I hope this show helps you in that process.
