Volume 1, Part 2

Watch this as video.

The Catholic Church in the U.S. is obliged to help shape the moral character of American society. This is a requirement of our faith. It is not an option. This obligation is shared by each member of the Church according to one's station in life and abilities.

"Some question whether it is appropriate for the Church to play a role in political life. However, the obligation to teach about moral values that should shape our lives, including our public lives, is central to the mission given to the Church by Jesus Christ. Moreover, the U.S. Constitution protects the right of individual believers and religious bodies to participate and speak out without government interference, favoritism, or discrimination. (Faithful Citizenship, USCCB)"

Much of the rant about "separation of church and state" is a ruse! The idea that the government must not impose religion on Americans nor create any law requiring it does not protect the government from Natural Law, Common Sense, or Revealed Truth. While our nation's founders came from widely divergent backgrounds, their fundamental values and convictions were similar. Their shared values and convictions concerning religious principles, economic fundamentals, and social goals were enshrined in our nation's Founding Documents. "...religious precepts turned out to be the heart and soul of the entire American political philosophy. (The 5000 Year Leap)" "Indeed, our Church's teaching is in accord with the foundational values that have shaped our nation's history: 'life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness'. (Faithful Citizenship)"
