Catholics For Obama Petition

A petition to endorse Barack Obama for President of the United States Of America can be "signed" on the Catholics for Obama website. Below is the petition content:

As a Catholic, I believe that Senator Barack Obama reflects core values of Catholic Social Teaching, which informs how we live our faith in the world. For more than 100 years this tradition has championed the rights of workers, the imperative of peace, the elimination of poverty, the advancement of equal opportunity, the healing of our environment, the right to health care, and the life and dignity of all.

Senator Obama has said: "People are coming together around a simple truth - that we are all connected, that I am my brother's keeper; I am my sister's keeper. And that it's not enough to just believe this - we have to do our part to make it a reality."(1) In the spirit of these words, which convey Senator Obama's commitment to the common good, a cornerstone of Catholic Social Teaching, we are called to act on the daunting issues confronting our society and the world today.

Therefore, I endorse Senator Barack Obama for President of the United States. He inspires hope and calls us to personal and social responsibility to help make the world, and our nation, a better place for all.

May God Bless Our Nation in this Time of Political Responsibility
