The document is quite broad in the sense that it leaves one open to form their conscious in a way that it would be suitable to vote for either candidate - Obama or McCain. Faithful Citizenship has created a lot of debate within not just the USCCB but laity. Anyway, good blog. I'll add it to my blogroll.

Ya know, I wasn't completely happy with it either. The guide from Catholic Answers is WAY better. The problem is, liberals have the Church so paranoid about losing it's tax-exempt status that if a bulletin insert isn't from the USCCB they're all afraid to go near it. It's a shame b/c the CA insert is much more helpful, especially in explaining what to do when BOTH candidates hold unacceptable views on one or more non-negotiable issues. The "Faithful Citizenship" document seems to just muddy up the issue. Kinda gets on my nerves.
