Letter to the Editor

The Dialog
Serving the Catholic Communities of DE and MD Eastern Shore
April 1, 2004

This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending the pro-life convention in Wilmington. The highlight of the night was Father Frank Pavone, head of Priests for Life. His words were informative and compelling. He did what too many Catholics do not do; he talked about how the political process has been left to those who oppose almost everything we believe in, yet we sit in silence.

In 2004 I am running on many issues but not running away from any issues. Specifically, we need to speak up about life issues and homosexual marriage. I am the only candidate who will not support HB 99, supporting homosexual rights, and I am the only candidate who supports President Bush’s belief in protecting traditional marriage. In fact, my Republican opponent has said my stances are nothing more than pandering. I can assure you that principled stands on these issues are not pandering, it is a requirement.

I encourage all who read this paper to listen to Father Pavone’s advice and become active and voice your concerns. The very foundation of our society is at stake.
