Perfect Is the Enemy Of Good

Dear Editor: Our President has been called many things in his three years in office, but my adjective of choice is “frustrating.” He seems to be, morally, on both sides of what is right and proper.

On the one hand, he is the president who granted an exception from Obamacare’s requirement for birth-control coverage to employee policies issued by the Little Sisters of the Poor.

He is also the first and only President to make a personal appearance at the annual March for Life in Washington — both of those were commendable acts.

Where the frustration comes in is that he is pro-death as well as pro-life. He breaks with Catholic Church teaching regarding capital punishment. We know his position on immigration; contrast it with that advocated by our own Bishop.

So, sincere Catholics will be faced with a difficult choice in November. It may come down to not “letting the perfect be the enemy of the good.”
