Catholic Advocate felt come November, the Republican party nominee must be more than an alternative to President Obama. They must be a trusted conservative leader who has never wavered on the core issues most important to people of faith.
This year, we’ll be forced to defend our pro-life, pro-family beliefs.
Catholic Advocate is ready to lead the charge and make this the year we stop the destructive, secular agenda that has been gaining ground in recent years.
Pro-abortion, pro-same sex marriage politicians will try desperately to convince voters that their anti-faith policies are best for America.
That’s why Deal Hudson and Matt Smith put together a list of ten ways progressives will try to mislead voters. We urgently need your help to sound the alarm about these issues. Please print this off to share or email to your friends and family and ask them to do the same.
Catholic Advocate’s Deal W. Hudson and Matt Smith issued the following statement about the 2012 Iowa Caucus results:
“Senator Santorum’s achievement last night in Iowa demonstrates the political viability of a Catholic candidate who does not compromise on social issues and offers real world solutions to the challenges of the budget, the economy, and foreign policy, especially in the Middle East. Catholic Advocate congratulates Rick Santorum for the courage and determination of his ‘public witness.’”

Catholic Advocate Vice President Matt Smith today issued the following statement regarding the panel discussion “Truth, Lies and Politics” being held this evening, Jan. 3, in Newton, Massachusetts at the Leventhal-Sidman Jewish Community Center. The event has been promoted in the Boston Globe as “Truth, Lies and Politics, a panel discussion featuring [Congressman Barney] Frank, journalist Robert Kuttner, and Father J. Bryan Hehir [Archdiocese of Boston Secretary for Health Care and Social Services]. Author Leonard Fein moderates the program exploring the relationship (or lack thereof) between politicians and truth-telling.”
“Father Hehir has an opportunity this evening to represent the teachings of our Church. The question is: will Father Hehir himself speak the Truth tonight?” asked Smith. “Will he speak the Truth to Congressman Frank about marriage being between one man and one woman? Or address Congressman Frank’s 100% pro-abortion voting record? These are pressing issues of ‘truth-telling’ between politicians.”
According to Freedom to Marry, a pro-same sex marriage organization: “We need more Barney Franks in public life, not fewer, and fortunately we will always have his indelible example to work from.” From their own website, “Freedom to Marry is leading the campaign to overturn DOMA [Defense of Marriage Act] and is working across the country to win marriage in more states and educate the public about why marriage matters to same-sex couples and their families.”
Smith added, “With Congressman Frank’s retirement at the end of this year, will Father Hehir take the opportunity tonight to publicly speak the Truth that faithful Catholics do not need more representatives voting like Barney Frank in Washington if we are going to make progress on the settled issues of life and marriage?”
