    I would be eternally grateful if any fellow FReepers could assist me in finding a comprehensive (Missouri) Voter's Guide (including for the judges and circuit judges) as I'm in the process of filling-out my absentee ballot for the November midterm election (I live in Toronto, Ontario). Any and all assistance would be greatly appreciated. FReegards.

    Catholics will get a dose of election-year issues this fall as New York's priests weigh in on the statewide contests. For the first time since the late 1980s, the Catholic Conference of New York State is putting together a voters guide to lay out where candidates for all statewide offices and the Legislature stand on 10 or 12 issues important to the church. The information will be distributed to parishes across the state, and priests will be encouraged to spread the word.  So some Sunday morning, expect to be reminded that Eliot Spitzer, the Democratic front-runner for governor, supports gay...

    Hoping to decipher the state's perplexing ballot propositions, a coalition of advocacy groups has published an unprecedented ``immigrant voters guide'' for tens of thousands of foreign-born citizens across California. But while the coalition claims to be non-partisan, its guide might create a different impression: The recommendations side 100 percent with the official position of the state Democratic Party. ``It's ridiculous,'' said Nhut Ho, an alternate member of the Santa Clara County Republican Central Committee, and Vietnam native. He said the guide incorrectly characterizes all immigrants as Democrats. Some local and state Republican leaders are questioning how the coalition came to...

    ALBANY — A Roman Catholic official has admonished Assemblyman Daniel Hooker for distributing what he called a "right-wing" and "simplistic" voter's guide for church members. Hooker, R-Saugerties, recently mailed about 150 copies of the "Voter's Guide for Serious Catholics," published by a conservative California group, to priests and deacons in his Assembly district. The pamphlet urges Catholics to avoid voting for candidates who "endorse or promote intrinsically evil policies" such as abortion, embryonic stem-cell research and same-sex marriage. In a letter to Hooker, the Very Rev. Thomas Berardi, dean of the Schoharie Deanery, said the pamphlet presents a "narrow and...

    October 19, 2004 -- WASHINGTON — A red-faced League of Women's Voters yesterday said it plans to correct a big-time gaffe in its 2004 New York voting guide that butchers President Bush's resume and indicates he has been out of work since 2000. "We're in the process of correcting it right now," explained Rob Marchiony, executive director of the league's New York chapter.

    Dear Kerry/Edwards supporter, I'm giving you this pamphlet because I'm concerned that you have not considered all of the issues of this election and I wanted to bring several of those issues to your attention. If you answer yes to the following questions then by all means vote for John Kerry for president, however, if you do not agree with these positions then you may want to reconsider your vote. * If you favor late term abortion (AKA Infanticide) then vote for Kerry. * If you are in favor of gun control then pull the trigger for Kerry. * If...

    HOUSES OF WORSHIP A Voter's GuidePro-choice candidates and church teaching.BY ARCHBISHOP JOHN J. MYERSFriday, September 17, 2004 12:01 a.m. EDT Amid today's political jostling, Catholic citizens are wondering whether they can, in conscience, vote for candidates who support the legalized killing of human beings in the embryonic and fetal stages of development by abortion or in biomedical research. Responding to requests to clarify the obligations of Catholics on this matter, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith in Rome, under its prefect, Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, released a statement called "On Worthiness to Receive Holy Communion." Although it dealt primarily...
  • Voter's Guide for Serious Catholics - 5 NON-NEGOTIABLE ISSUES FOR CATHOLIC VOTERS

    THE FIVE NON-NEGOTIABLE ISSUES These five current issues concern actions that are intrinsically evil and must never be promoted by the law. Intrinsically evil actions are those which fundamentally conflict with the moral law and can never be deliberately performed under any circumstances. It is a serious sin to deliberately endorse or promote any of these actions, and no candidate who really wants to advance the common good will support any action contrary to the non-negotiable principles involved in these issues. 1. Abortion The Church teaches that, regarding a law permitting abortions, it is "never licit to obey it, or...
