An on-line event on Wednesday October 28
CHICAGO, Usa.- Ten days away from the USA Presidential Elections and with millions having already voted, people are still gathering, on-line, to listen to the experts and to discuss the implications of what is at stake.
This is particularly so among religious groups. Catholics are the second largest religious vote of the population or 23%, but they cannot be considered a monolithic group.
It is a fact that the Democratic candidate Joe Biden is a practicing Catholic but the views of the Democratic Party on the right to abortion separate him from a large segment of believers.
To discuss the role of the Catholic vote in these elections the Hank Center for the Catholic Intellectual Heritage of Loyola University Chicago has organized an on line event titled Catholic: Vote 2020, How will faith be a factor?
The event is co-sponsored by the Loyola University Chicago, Commonweal and the Mundelein College Alumnae Association. Anyone may register for the event to take place on Wednesday October 28, 2020, 7:00 -8:30 PM
Professor Cathleen Kaveny, will speak on the relationship of law, religion, and morality. Also participating will be Matthew Sitman, associate editor of the Commonweal Magazine and Kenneth Woodward who served as Religion Editor of Newsweek for 38 years.
