“If Obama goes on to win, one of the significant stories will be the profile of the faith vote,” said Kinnaman. “People will wonder whether he won because of effective outreach by Democrats to the Christian community, ineffective efforts of Republicans, or shifts in the voting priorities of Christians, especially younger believers. Whatever the case, compared to when the names Kerry and Bush were on the ballot, the Democrats are poised to make up significant ground among born again and evangelical voters.”

Proprio un altro mondo… Lì tra cattolici si discute su chi sia più vicino all’insegnamento dalla Chiesa, qui spesso si fa a gara ad ignorarlo. Dal New York Times.

A Fight Among Catholics Over Which Party Best Reflects Church Teachings
By DAVID D. KIRKPATRICK

As the Roman Catholic Church observes its annual “respect life” Sunday in this heated presidential election season, the unusually pitched competition for Catholic voters is setting off a round of skirmishes over how to apply the church’s teachings not only on abortion but also on the war in Iraq, immigration and racism.

Riporto di seguito dettagli sulle variazioni al programma del Partito Democratico USA determinate anche dall’attività di gruppi evangelici e cattolici (vedi post precedente https://channelman.wordpress.com/2008/09/17/tony-campolo-democratici-e-aborto/ e https://channelman.wordpress.com/2008/09/19/mr-mccain-contano-i-fatti/). Qui di seguito le positive reazioni del gruppo Catholics United:

“Catholics United welcomes the Democratic Party’s new platform language as the seed of a practical and effective plan to significantly reduce abortions in the United States. Although we understand that Catholic teaching does not support all the provisions contained in the party’s abortion platform, we believe faithful Catholics will appreciate this development as a positive step toward abortion policy Americans of diverse ideological and religious backgrounds can unite behind.

For far too long, extremists on both sides of the political spectrum have used the abortion issue to divide voters, often at the expense of other pressing concerns. By focusing on the root causes of abortion – economic inequality, lack of education and health care, and other threats to the integrity of the American family – the leaders of the Democratic Party are signaling a willingness to bring Americans together in support of common ground solutions.

Da qualche tempo seguo l’attività di questo gruppo che considero portatore di una esperienza utile anche per la nostra realtà nazionale.

Per essere un gruppo di cattolici schierati a “sinistra”, infatti, il loro “manifesto” è molto diverso da quelli a cui siamo abituati.

Niente considerazioni negative su gerarchia e magistero, nè rimpianti per l’Età dell’Oro – variamente identificata (prima/durante/dopo C.V.II). Qui sotto riporto il loro “biglietto da visita”

Catholics United is a national online community of Catholics who believe strongly in our faith’s call to build a society for justice and the common good.

We take seriously all our Church’s social and political teachings, and refuse to water down our faith in service of partisan politics.

Catholics United è una community online di cattolici che credono profondamente nella chiamata della nostra fede a costruire una società a favore della giustizia e del bene comune.
Prendiamo sul serio tutti gli insegnamenti in materia sociale e politica della nostra Chiesa, e ci rifiutiamo di annacquare la nostra fede per metterla al servizio di una politica faziosa.

Sr. Dianna Ortiz e Fr. Roy Bourgeois, che hanno subito torture e l’ex “military interrogator” Joshua Casteel insieme alle organizzazioni Catholics United, True Majority, e School of the Americas Watch hanno lanciato in questo video un appello/rimprovero John McCain per un bando definitivo della tortura, senza eccezioni. McCain infatti, dopo avere iniziato la campagna per la candidatura repubblicana, ha abbandonato la linea anti-tortura per una compromissoria. Nel video appare anche il Papa Benedetto XVI.
