Five Non-Negotiables
This groundbreaking CD set by Tim Staples is an expansion of Catholic Answers’ acclaimed Voter’s Guide for Serious Catholics. And it will help you vote in an informed manner consistent with Catholic moral teaching and fundamental human rights. All five moral issues discussed on these CDs—abortion, euthanasia, embryonic stem-cell research, human cloning, and same-sex “marriage”—have been definitively declared by the Church to be objectively and absolutely immoral. And you, as a faithful Catholic, are required to vote against all five and—with only rare exceptions—to vote against politicians who support any of them.
