All right what cabinet voters are a crucial voting bloc in this upcoming election but is the media misrepresenting.
Their views right now we are joined by said priest Fox News religion correspondent and contributor father -- good morning -- thank you are are you frustrated by the way mainstream media has depicted the Catholic Church -- -- being frustrated.
-- A humored a little bit by the fact that people don't stand up to -- let me give you a few examples.
I think the way religion not just Catholic Church the we've religion and faith is -- expert misrepresented in the media -- Two major ways first of all you can present your own opinion and fact.
As fact because why it's long -- -- -- -- religion because religion is totally subjective.
And -- for not based in any truth no matter what you say is okay.
What's an example of that just this last week he'll color of the New York Times wrote an article about how to die okay it was all about.
End of life care.
The suggestion she made was that the reason why we're not able to as a society get to a point in which.
Our loved ones can died peacefully is because the Catholic Church would never allow such.
Practices to occur that's meaning what meaning what a suggestion that the Catholic Church would require.
A family member to go to extreme means to keep somebody who is dying a life it's simply not -- truth but.
Nobody stands up to -- because you know what is long ledger talking about religion.
Is lung -- you can offer any opinion -- -- And passes fat because religion itself is purely subjective well what about during the vice presidential debate at Joseph Biden just flat out lied when he said.
That a Catholic institutions do not have to pay for.
Contraceptives under the the president's health care initiative that is a lie.
-- -- simply he was wrong about it but it was barely picked up.
That that -- and media's responsibility the media's responsibility.
To go after those facts.
But again because either there's woeful ignorance ignorance and in the area of religion therefore yeah I don't know if that's true or not or -- because -- -- real bias.
They're not doing let me give you another example -- -- there's two ways obviously -- One is presenting your opinion on facts as if that were fact because religion -- -- purely subjective.
The second way is taking a fringe representatives.
For example a group like Catholics for choice or Catholics for free choice -- -- Catholics for abortion you know.
That's it's that the problem is by using the -- Catholic you're suggesting.
That this group represents.
A legitimate group within the Catholic Church the president of that group for 25 years.
Was one who's celebrated Roe vs.
Wade the first anniversary.
By standing on that's on the steps of saint Patrick -- Patrick's cathedral.
And being crowned Pope.
She was crowned -- Pope on Saint Patrick's Cathedral by her own little group of people.
Putting these these people forward and saying this is.
Our representation of the Catholic Church is wrong we've also seen it with about sister Simone Campbell.
Who is who is who spoke at the Democratic National Convention another example of saying hey listen.
We are fair and balanced.
But we're gonna do in a way that is not fair here earlier when you said that you're through being frustrated and I believe.
I'd -- I'd rather go to confession.
I don't always -- -- I have a brings us.
