In April, Fr. Andrew Kemberling, Pastor at St. Thomas More Catholic Parish in Centennial Colorado, was invited to lead the opening prayer at the 2012 Colorado Republican State Assembly and Convention in the Magness Arena at the University of Denver. Fr. Andrew contends in his strongly-worded invocation that the moral challenges facing our country are not caused by political affiliation, but rather by attacks on religious freedom. He invites all people of conscience to uphold religious freedom.
The Catechism of the Catholic Church states: "The Church has rejected the totalitarian and atheistic ideologies associated in modem times with 'communism' or 'socialism'."
