Vatican- politics worthless without Christ- Christ must feature in voting

(Scripturelink Voters Guide; Zenit News Service)


Article by Marc Aupiais


Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, Vatican secretary of state yesterday stated that secularism, which is in his opinion void of values, politics, and all such things must only be means by which the values of God are implemented within the world, stating that without Christ- states quickly learn to ignore the greater good.

He identified the recent financial crisis, the "credit crunch" in the developed would as evidence of what happens when societies aim for the short-term above what is beneficial over the long term.

Some sources claim that the recent crisis would have been entirely avoided if a 1992 bill sponsored by political presidential candidate- McCain had been successful- the entire financial crisis in America would not have occured.

A voice from within the bishops, recently gave the US government five principles on which to fix the crisis. (c.f. Zenit News 29/09/08).
