Queensland Bishop’s Release Statement in lead up to Election08 September, 2020
The Catholic Bishops of Queensland have launched a State Election Statement, with leadership from both parties in attendance, calling on Catholics to consider Catholic Social Teachings as they prepare to vote on October 31.
“We have no monopoly on truth, but we offer these reflections in a spirit of solidarity, as people who also have to consider our vote carefully, who can draw upon a deep wisdom concerning the common good and who are called to care for the most vulnerable in our community… we can point to clear and enduring principles which can help us make the kind of responsible judgements that allow us to be both faithful Catholics and good citizens”.
