I am a Catholic and my religion is at the heart of stance on “Faith and Family.” I am pro-life and vow to fight against federal funding of abortions. Life is precious and needs to be protected.
The Heritage Foundation put it best stating, “Family and religion are foundational to American freedom and the common good. For example, the married family plays an important part in promoting economic opportunity: children raised by never-married mothers are seven times more likely to be poor when compared to children raised in intact married families. Meanwhile, religious institutions and individuals form the backbone of America’s thriving civil society, providing for the welfare of individuals more effectively than government programs. Yet the role of these institutions in maintaining ordered liberty is poorly understood, and policy and social developments have factored in undermining their important contributions.”
I believe marriage is between one man and one woman. Congress needs to step up its defense of DOMA (The Defense of Marriage Act) since President Obama has said Dept. of Justice lawyers will no longer fight for DOMA in court.
