How to vote

This episode was well done. Good to hear the importance of forming one’s conscience before voting. It is far from black and white for Catholics going into the voting booth. Lot’s of gray area, as Fr. House said. A preeminent issue doesn’t exclude others.

Awesome Podcast

Andrew & Amber do a great job with this podcast. Frequent guests, Fr. Chris House, Fr. Michael Friedel, and Fr. Marty Smith add a great element. The interesting, real-world Catholic discussions are exactly what is needed in today’s world.
