Voting Catholic


 
As we prepare to go to the polls, it's important to research the issues and candidates. Some issues are more important than others. The Voter's Guide forSerious Catholics can help you in your decision. It's a little 40¢ booklet that discusses the non-negotiables, that is, the issues that have strong moral implications: abortion, euthanasia, embryonic stem-cell research, human cloning, and so called homosexual marriage.

This article, at EWTN on voting, answers some questions you may have, for instance, do you ever wonder if it is permissible to vote for a pro-choice candidate?

The Catholic Church, its priests, bishops, etc, will never tell whom to vote for, but the guidelines in these two resources can help you figure that out for yourself.

Short story with a pro-life angle


My short story, "Graffitied Door" is up at The Wordsmith Journal Magazine. Here's the link.

"Graffitied Door" is about a pregnant teen. It's a bit gritty, but also kind of sweet, and very pro-life.

 

The Wordsmith Journal is an awesome site. In addition to short stories, they have columns/blogs, author interviews, and book reviews. Their thing is to feature books with a Christian moral message.
