Historic crossroads for U.S.

Glendon: economic, cultural concerns make 2012 election historic

Here is a Catholic News Agency story about Mary Ann Glendon, the former U.S. ambassador to the Holy See, who believes that the 2012 presidential election will be a historic crossroads for the United States.

"I think this may be the most important election in many, many years, and the reasons for saying that are both economic and cultural," she told CNA Aug. 24.

Glendon, who was recently appointed vice-chairwoman of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, says American voters face a choice between a Democratic Party that is "very devoted to and willing to give priority to what I would call the 'lifestyle liberties,'" and a Republican Party that is more supportive of "the family and the small institutions of civil society and religion."
