EDITORIAL | Mother Church does not choose favorites

When our nation's political and cultural divisions strain goodwill and basic charity toward others, it may be helpful to turn our attention to an institution that considers politics and social issues as important, yet secondary concerns.

Any position she takes flows from prior fundamental beliefs about the nature of reality, the goodness of creation, the dignity of humanity, the reality of free will, sin, forgiveness and life everlasting.
