  •  Intrinsic evil (0+ / 0-)

    If you are going to argue, as the Catholic church does, that only certain sexual sins are intrinsically evil, you are going to wind up taking a pro-Republican position. Since abortion, contraception, and same sex sexual relationships are intrinsically evil the Church believes you can't support a politician or political party supporting them. But since geed and other economic sins are not intrinsic evils the Church can support politicians and political parties which advocate them. That the economic sins are far worse in terms of their effect on society doesn't matter. Church leadership is obsessed with sex to the point where nothing else matters. The entirety of Catholic teaching must be ignored in order to wage a futile war against the sexual revolution of the 60s.
