As a Catholic, I was interested in seeing this ad, and it was worth it. I found it very, very powerful. I’ll admit it, at some points it even brought tears to my eyes (don’t ask me why, because I don’t know. It just did).
This video, I think, is relevant to more than just Catholics. They’re right on multiple levels, whether you’re Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, agnostic, atheist… whatever your religious preference, it doesn’t matter, because the values that this country was founded on are applicable to all Americans, regardless of race, gender, or religion.
And yes, abortion plays a role in that, as does gay marriage, but it’s more than just that. It’s about reclaiming our heritage as Americans, about getting back to the values, morals, and traditions we once held dear. We’ve long since let them go. Our culture has been cheapened, and this election will be a step in either the right or the wrong direction. CatholicVote doesn’t come right out and say which way is the right way, but I think we can hazard a guess.
In any case, this ad was great. It’s a good reminder of what’s really important, and hopefully it will encourage people to wake up and start paying more attention between now and November — and most importantly, encourage them to vote in November.
