Texas bishops: No moral equivalence between prudential issues and those involving "intrinsic evil"
See "What Do Catholics Really Believe?" which today highlights the letter by bishops in Texas on Voting as Faithful Citizens. Especially helpful is their statement that there is no "moral equivalence" between prudential matters, such as fighting poverty and solving the economic crisis, and issues involving intrinsic evil such as the fight against legalized abortion. Issues concerning intrinsic evil outweigh prudential matters when casting one's vote as a "faithful citizen".
