"Political" Priests look to 2008

 

Priests for Life


9/5/2006

       
   
  Washington, DC – Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, which has been named among the Top 20 Christian Political Organizations in the nation, announced today that he has launched his organization’s work for the 2008 elections.  “Our work for the 2006 elections is, of course, in full gear.  We fully expect victories for pro-life candidates across the board, and we intend to continue the momentum into 2008.  Our goal here is not partisan,” Fr. Pavone explained.  “We endorse no candidates, nor raise any money for their campaigns.  Rather, what we do is to teach moral principles regarding the duty of government to protect human life.  Thousands of children in the womb continue to be ripped apart alive each day.  Concerns about appearing too political aren’t going to keep us silent in the face of that.”

Priests for Life has one the largest budgets of any pro-life organization, and fostering political responsibility among Churchgoers is one of its top priorities.  Plans are in place to teach Churches across the country to do all those activities that tax law permits to Churches, such as non-partisan voter registration and get-out-the-vote drives, non-partisan voter guides, and voter education campaigns regarding what issues matter most according to Church teaching.  “If, in the end, our educational activity benefits one candidate or party more than another, that’s not because we’re partisan.  That’s because the candidate or party in question has taken a particular position.  That’s independent of our duty to stand up for what is right.”
