...I would agree with the points that you mention .
We should be guided by our own experiences, consciences and beliefs when we go to vote .Politics has a tendency to corrupt even the most moral of men.Even a Catholic Jesuit Priest, Fr.Robert Drinan, elected to the Congress has voted in favor of a pro abortion bill because of his party's interests .
However for a politician to profess Catholicism/Christianity and vote in favor of abortion or murder of a fully formed fetus /child just before birth is the absolute height of hypocrisy to me.
A non Catholic or any other religion that protests the murder of a unborn child is bad enough but to receive what I believe to be the Body and blood of Christ on a sunday while voting to support abortion on Monday is a grave and fatal mortal sin in my books !
"Father Robert Frederick Drinan, S.J. (November 15, 1920 Ė January 28, 2007) was a Roman Catholic Jesuit priest, lawyer, human rights activist, and Democratic U.S. Representative from Massachusetts. He was also a law professor at Georgetown University Law Center for the last twenty-six years of his life."

BTW - disagreeing with your POV does not make the video full of gross factual errors.Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

- something that most other Christian churches agree with. They believe that if something is a sin - then it is also a sin to support it - again also reasonable.
AND you would know that the church is the final arbiter of morality for Roman Catholics. You don't get to make up your own mind about moral issues. relativism is just plain stupid.

Among other things - support is voting for people who endorse that sinful position. It is also tacitly or actively allowing others to engage in sinful activity. If you as a person have no power to stop that sinful activity you have the obligation of at least speaking against it - BUT - if you have it in your power to stop a sinful act - such as through your vote - you have the obligation to do just that.Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.
