Render unto Caesar...a taste

"Today, in practice, all political parties have self-described Catholics who are willing to trade their religious and moral convictions for power. All political parties have parts of their platforms that fly in the face of Catholic teaching. And all political parties contain Catholics who like to keep their personal faith tucked safely away at home. This is why Thomas More has so much to teach us, even today: He always placed the moral content of an issue before factional loyalty and personal interests." [emphasis in original]

Archbishop Charles Chaput, Render unto Casesar
