Good point from George Weigel

"In addition to clarifying the nature of the Church's pro-life position, the bishops must get their conference's communications strategy in order. When deputy USCCB spokesperson Sister Mary Ann Walsh told Fox News that 'there is no candidate...in agreement with the Church on all issues,' she failed to make the other, obvious, and essential point: not all issues are equal. And that's not just my view, that's the view of the people Sister Mary Ann has been hired to serve: the bishops of the United States, who in a 1998 pastoral letter made unmistakably clear that the pro-life issue carried more weight than other issues because it involved the moral foundations of American democracy.
