DFLA Board Member on Faithful Citizenship in 2012

Steve Schneck: “More importantly, we’re reminded that in the Catholic understanding politics is itself good, that the political order arose not out of human sin but from the Creator’s intention that we be citizens, that governance is not a necessary evil but natural and divinely ordained, and that it is the moral obligation of government to promote life, serve the poor, build peace, assure health care, strengthen families, advance a living wage and employment for all, steward the earth, and bring justice to inequities.”
