The Church in the Public Square                                                                                                      

The most basic universal truth is the dignity of the human person. This truth touches almost every aspect of public policy, from laws against murder and racial discrimination, to the right to food and shelter, to access to education and health care. The Church has a legal right and a moral obligation to defend these truths throughout our culture, including in the public policy arena.
