Did you know that the members of the riches and most powerful countries in the world have pledged in the United Nations to reduce poverty in the world by half by the year 2015?

Unfortunately we are far from those two goals.

We need to demand from our elected officials during their first 100 days of administration to make good our “common good” for all in the country and to fulfill its international commitment to reduce poverty in the world.

Stay connected and discover that even simple things you may do will help fight poverty.

DENVER, Colorado, AUG. 22, 2008 (Zenit.org).- Not only does religion have a place in the public square, a democracy needs the input of religious morals and convictions to remain healthy and strong, says the archbishop of Denver.

Taking religion out of play, adds Archbishop Charles Chaput, author of “Render Unto Caesar: Serving the Nation by Living Our Catholic Beliefs in Political Life,” is the fastest way to destroy a democracy.

In this interview with ZENIT, Archbishop Chaput talks about the ideas put forth in his book on Catholics and politics, and comments on what he thinks are the important issues facing voters this November.

En esta entrevista con ZENIT, monseñor Chaput habla sobre las ideas planteadas en su libro sobre los católicos y la política, y comenta lo que cree que son los temas importantes para los votantes estadounidenses en las elecciones presidenciales de este noviembre.
