In an opinion piece on the Washington Post’s On Faith blog, Mathew Schmalz, associate professor of religious studies at the College of the Holy Cross, commented on the recent vice-presidential debate, and the ways in which each candidate’s Catholic values impact their policy positions.
Referring to Biden and Ryan as “two deeply Catholic candidates who are basically very much alike,” Schmalz noted that their policy differences stem from efforts to edify the platforms of their respective parties. “[The candidates] were accommodating political reality in contemporary America,” Schamlz explained.
“While being Catholic inevitably requires accommodation to one’s own political context, being Catholic can also provide a way to envision possibilities that are not limited by our own social and cultural location,” he wrote.
