Voting Is an Obligation

Dear Editor: Did George Weigel (Sept. 17), who normally offers insightful analysis, recently suffer a concussion? With so much at stake, how could he suggest not voting in the presidential election.

First, it is a moral duty.

Second, the Republican platform is pro-family and pro-life, whereas the Democratic platform is pro-abortion and anti-traditional marriage. So, there is a real choice, and not voting would be a sin of omission.

Also, a Catholic in good conscience, cannot support a pro-abortion, anti-marriage candidate.

May God help us to restore America to our Judeo-Christian heritage.
