Douglas W. Kmiec on Catholics and the Obama/Biden Run for the White House
The author of Can a Catholic Support Him?, legal scholar Douglas W. Kmiec, presents the Catholic case for Barack Obama in this newly released video. Kmiec's new book is also the subject of a thoughtful review by Michael Sean Winters in America Magazine: The National Catholic Weekly: "This book is a great help for those Catholics who are wrestling with their voting decision, not only in this election, but in all elections. While Kmiec focuses on Obama, the issues are perennial and will come up so long as Catholics are engaged in public life. His final chapter on "Catholic Officials and Catholic Voters – When Law and Morality Disagree" is a short, concise introduction to an enormously complicated topic. In short, this book is a must read for all serious Catholics. You may agree with Kmiec or not, but you cannot ignore his arguments."
