Ben Conroy – The Irish Catholic
I currently find myself politically homeless. And I think I’m not the only one.
As a politically engaged Catholic, there isn’t a party in the country that can command my unqualified support. I had high hopes for the Green Party, (and before you laugh, I suggest that anyone uncomfortable with supporting groups that have suffered huge declines in public support should re-consider their membership of the Catholic Church) with its focus on care for the enivorment and social justice and its abortion policy that allowed each individual member to vote with their conscience. But their new support for X case legislation has made it impossible for me to support the party platform.
