Can a Catholic Vote for Either Ticket?

Given that both the Democratic Incumbent Vice-President and the Republican Vice-Presidential candidate both claim to be devout Catholics, how can we make sense of the competing visions of the Catholic faith alive in American politics? Both candidates claim that their positions are informed by Catholic social teaching and tradition, yet each take very different trajectories. This two hour panel discussion brings together Loyola professors from Political Science, Theology, Sociology and the School of Law to offer insight into the challenges of voting in this political year.
