American Papist reports that Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio who chaired the US Bishops committee which drafted the Catholic voting guide “Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship” recorded robocalls used to support a candidate with a pro-abortion and pro-homosexual marriage voting record.
In my opinion I don’t thing a Bishop should be publicly supporting any political candidate even if was someone of St. Thomas More’s stripe. Bishops should be speaking out against intrinsic evils involved in political debate, but to speak in support of individual candidates is a mistake – especially in this circumstance. Plus it looks like he did this in the past in support of pro-abortion Mike Bloomberg. The fact that he chaired the committee on the much criticized faithful citizenship is I guess not surprising.
