    Fr. Barron comments on the Republican and Democratic Conventions

I think the key to good government is that those that compose government "love" their people. I know this sounds trite but here in the UK and I suspect the case is the same in the US, our leaders are whited sepulchres. They make the same honey coated speeches that I heard at the party conventions but their actions are all self-serving. Whilst I know that to some extent this has always been the case but I do think that it is a lot worse now than it has ever been.

I think it is often overlooked by the Democrats how much Big Business, Capitalism, contributes in donations to charity. Many of the insurance companies I have worked for through out my career has given back to the community through free clinics, large amounts of money donated to community causes and to charity. Most have been predominately Republican companies. I think government has a role, but so does the community.

What I love the most about your videos is the insight I get from whatever topic you discuss; from movie reviews to my favorites: Gospel, moral, historic teachings, etc. However, I am still trying to understand what is that you meant to teach on this one. And more troubling, after watching this video, I ended up with a real bad taste of moral equivalence between both parties. I understand you cannot speak freely about your preference of one party, so if that is the case, then why talk about this topic in the first place? Please help me understand why talk about "Catholic Teaching" in the context of the direct impact of voting for a party that openly advocates for abortion, homosexual marriage, embryonic stem cell "research", etc.? Are we supposed to look the other way on these topics in favor of the always important social programs dedicated to help the poor, sick, etc.? And one more question: Can you please point me to where this so called "Catholic teaching" is documented?

Blessed Fr. Barron, thank you so much for this and your other video entries. I wish to hear your thoughts on how the church's teachings dating back back to Rerum Novarum, Centesimus Annus, and most recently the church's position on the current financial crisis. I loath the thought that I may be adopting a cafeteria view, but it seems that in regards to social justice, the church is and has been overwhelmingly clear in its position. Please advise.
