Catholic vote should be based on issue of abortion and same-sex marriage, says bishop

.- Bishop David A. Zubik of Green Bay issued a note in church bulletins this week urging Catholics to vote in the presidential election and to base their vote foremost on opposition to abortion and same-sex marriage.
 
In his letter, also published in the diocesan newspaper, the Compass, the bishop dismissed the distinction that Catholic politicians have drawn between their Catholic faith and their public life.
 
"Some political figures in this election have asserted that there is a natural divide between their religious beliefs and their political views," he wrote. "I argue that [this] is patently false. [It] goes against the fabric of what it means to be a person of faith."
 
"When you go to your local polls, don't leave God outside," Bishop Zubik wrote. "Remember that God created marriage. It's not a lifestyle choice that seeks to make marriage by law something God never intended marriage to be."
 
The bishop stressed that he was not endorsing any particular candidates.
