Candidates we cannot "take seriously"

San Diego diocese's voter's guide gives little leeway in voting for candidates who support "intrinsic evils"

The Office for Social Ministry of the diocese of San Diego came out with a voter's guide this month. The guide, "As a Catholic … How Do I Decide?" says it "does not tell an individual how to vote," but helps "users form their consciences so that they can make sound moral choices."

The guide has several sections, each dealing with a different area of political and social concern: "Protecting Human Life," "Marriage and Family," "Protecting Immigrants and Refugees," "Protecting Workers and Working Poor Families," "Promoting Health Care," "Safe and Affordable Housing," "Protecting Families from the Harm of Pornography," and "Promoting Global Solidarity."
