In school, we talked about the "obligation" to vote for him because he was Catholic and therefore "better" than any other candidate. I protested saying that "qualifications" mean nothing? I got suspended.
I can tell you one thing for sure. His "groupie" relationships were never mentioned.
Maybe he was better than Nixon. Regardless, that was a prudential judgment subject to error. The choice today, however, is clear. No Catholic (or any other person) in good conscience can vote for a politician who is pro-death, unless the other candidates are worse pro-death candidates. In such a case, voters can also refrain from voting.
