Read the Complete Statement of Gilberto Teodoro:

If a “Catholic Vote” is acceptable then why is the Church not registering as a political party or founding one? Why then don’t priests run for public office. It is my opinion, and I stress my OPINION, that such acts are contrary to the fundamental beliefs of the Catholic faith.

As a matter of Faith which the Church must minister to is the strengthening of ones belief in God and in Jesus Christ, especially the Gospel which teaches that faith is Supreme. Faith can never be the product of or the supposed core of a partisan political act.

On the contrary a public call for a partisan act such as a vote in an election which directly assists a candidate or a group of candidates is using faith in vain for a human political purpose and therefore it is pharisaical. Lets keep God and Jesus Christ in our souls and leave politics for our temporal issues.
