We must vote when consequences are so great Print

To the editor:

This election produces a worst case scenario. We must pray without ceasing that worst case pro-abortion candidates don’t get elected, that the American people don’t get so turned off that they don’t vote. It is a great moral negligence, a sin of omission, an evil, not to vote when the consequences are so great.

Christians in particular MUST hold on to Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior (not political parties or candidates) and that the end government result is not a government that mandates killing babies by abortion and the frail person with dementia or disability or non-terminal life conditions by “murder by morphine.”

Please pray from your heart that God will protect us if we encounter government trying to mandate that we support warfare against the Catholic Church in America; that Catholic hospitals and nursing homes and home health agencies provide life-ending results, not life-enhancing/life-sustaining care; that individuals and families and institutions are forced to face paying taxes for abortion, euthanasia, and sterilization; that we are silenced by fear and don’t speak up for our constitutional freedoms and rights.

We must be faithful, unto death if necessary, to protect the least of our brothers and sisters, for “so as we do unto them, so we do unto Jesus” (Mt. 25: 31-46).

Deacon Jack Fernan, Monona
