Just a Thought

Just a Thought

          California’s Proposition 30 is a tax hike that promises to provide money for schools.  That part is debatable, but there are trigger cuts that will be enacted if the proposition fails.  Schools routinely cover abortions in their student “health” plan (i.e. at taxpayer expense) and at least one (UC Berkeley) covers 90% of a $75,000 sex change procedure.
          Now I don’t believe a Catholic is obligated to vote either way on Prop 30.  It is a prudential judgment, and I suspect it would provide funds for important purposes.  But from my perspective, until our money can stop being spent for immoral uses, I’m not voting to give them any more, from anywhere.  Of course, we have to make the reason for our protest known if we hope to have any change.  Something to think about…
