The Pope on Political Priorities

This kind of goes with yesterday’s post on the importance of voting pro-life because abortion is, above all, a human rights issue.
Pope BenedictIn a speech addressed to the members of the Democratic International of the Centre and the Christian Democrats Pope Benedict said (my emphasis added):

‘There are those who legitimize the elimination of the human life in its pre-birth and terminal phases. The crisis of the family is also worrying, it is the fundamental cell of society founded on indissoluble marriage by man or woman. The central role of the person and respect for human rights, the commitment to peace and the promotion of justice for everyone are the values and the ideals that should lead the political commitment of the Catholics.’
