San Antonio, Texas, Aug 22, 2012 / 03:00 am
The Catholic Hispanic Leadership Alliance has applied Catholic social teaching to issues that will shape the upcoming presidential election in a new voter's guide.
"We invite U.S. Catholics to reflect on this document and use it as an aid to decision-making before entering the voting booth in November," president Robert Aguirre said Aug. 21.
The San Antonio-based group has gathered candidate opinions with related media reports and compiled them into a 21-page document to summarize where the presumptive nominees of the Democratic and Republican parties stand on particular issues.
"Opinions from candidates and the media related to these issues may be debated, but Catholic social teaching is clear," Aguirre said.
