Voting with a conscience

May 12, 2022 Fr Greg Barker

As we face the polls later this month you might already be thinking of simply ticking the first box on the ballet paper and not about much else.

Perhaps you are disillusioned with the current state of politics in our country, disappointed with the direction we are heading in and, in the ‘leaders’ before us. As such, like me, you might be more actively channel surfing to avoid yet another election ad or campaign speech. I hear your pain.

The Church can’t tell you who you should vote for. However, every person of faith- regardless of their faith, has a responsibility to inform their own conscience.

As Alex, Brendan and their three children wait for the photographer to set up on Redhead Beach, it was hard to miss the chorus of “look, it’s Mrs Walsh” from nearby youngsters enjoying an afternoon swim.
