.- Preparing for the upcoming mid-term elections in November, Catholic Vote has announced the launch of a new website design as well as the reorganization of group's specific outreaches.

In a press release provided exclusively to CNA, Catholic Vote discussed the coinciding release of a two-minute video which is the first of a series of election-related clips, urging voters to seek God first in addressing the current problems of our nation.

“Americans may differ about how to best solve the social and economic problems facing our country, but we must come together in calling on God’s help,” said Brian Burch, president of the CatholicVote.org Education Fund.

“Politicians need to stop pretending like they can solve all of our problems, and we need to stop letting them try,” Burch added. “Americans intuitively know that the solutions to the problems that confront us will not come from bureaucracies thousands of miles away, but from prayer, hard work, and a revival of that American spirit that has guided us since our founding.”

Birch explained to CNA in a phone conversation Thursday the importance of electing officials who share the vision of “unleashing power” to the American people versus politicians who are more interested in their own agendas.

“There's a difference between politics and political activity,” Birch noted, adding that encouraging Catholics to become involved in the voting process “does not mean that we believe that politics,” in and of themselves, are “the answer.”

“Americans are a practical people. We hate bickering and blame-games. We simply want results. And we’ve been scandalized this past decade by a government that is out of touch and often incompetent,” Burch added in the Sept. 9 press release. “Both political parties, quite frankly, share some blame.”

Catholic Vote reported that the new video coincides with a re-launching of the group's family of organizations.

The group's updated website also introduces the CatholicVote.org non-partisan political action committee, which has endorsed candidates in races across the country. Other changes include CatholicVote.org’s 501c3 section being re-named the CatholicVote.org Education Fund.
