The title really speaks for itself. As I take my walk in the morning, afternoon, and even after having dinner, I see many signs around the neighborhood on display for members running for civic races in my once great city.
The television is no different as the finish line is close for many of the candidates. Some had strong starts and looking for the same finish. Others are looking for some kind of miracle.
Sadly, I question and even pray for the blind. Those who blindly vote for those with good intentions in exchange for the voter’s soul. Meaning, the candidates that are pawns of the culture of death.
As May 16th is just days away for major cities and townships, we must take a hard look at how Catholics should approach this big election cycle. Many cities will have elections for mayor, school board, county commissioner, and even city council.
Unfortunately, the events that have unfolded in the years leading to and after the draconian lockdowns have taught us valuable lessons that we as Catholics must be ready for when going to the polls (mail-in ballots are not the right way to vote). Get off your rear ends and go to the polls.
Some things to consider when going to the polls. Considering recent events, two things to consider when going to the polls during the primary election.
Are the candidates running locally stand in line with church teachings? What is their record on voting for life issues, marriage, and religious freedom?
Is the candidate in favor of education that shapes children and adolescents in advancing their critical thinking skills? Will they support traditional values? Will children have a safe environment that does not have groomers or convicted pedophiles in the classroom? Is the candidate trying to ram woke ideologies down the throats of vulnerable children who will grow up to be confused or lack the skills needed to get into institutes of higher learning?
Vote your conscience, my brothers and sisters in Christ. Vote your faith.
