If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. Then quit. There's no point in being a damn fool about it.
~ W. C. Fields (January 29, 1880 - December 25, 1946)
A Catholic would be guilty of formal cooperation in evil, and so unworthy to present himself for holy Communion, if he were to deliberately vote for a candidate precisely because of the candidate's<br/>permissive stand on abortion and/or euthanasia. When a Catholic does not share a candidate's stand in favor of abortion and/or euthanasia, but votes for that candidate for other reasons, it is considered remote material cooperation, which can be permitted in the presence of proportionate reasons.
~ Pope Benedict XVI (April 16, 1927 - )
