Catholic Families for America Endorses Scott Brown for Massachusetts Senate Seat

WASHINGTON, (christiansunite.com) -- Dr. Kevin Roberts, executive director of the Catholic grassroots advocacy group, Catholic Families for America (CFA), announced the organization's endorsement of Scott Brown in next Tuesday's special election for the U.S. Senate.

"Scott would be such an upgrade on every major issue from the late Teddy Kennedy," Roberts said. "Furthermore, his opponent, who espouses the same anti-life, anti-family, anti-values agenda that made Kennedy such a tragic figure to the Church, should give Catholic, Christian, and values voters an easy choice next Tuesday."

Though CFA usually endorses candidates who adhere to the organization's strict criteria on pro-life stances, Roberts cited Brown's opposition to federal funding for abortion and support for parental notification -- as well as his opponent's radical views on those issues -- as sufficient reasons to issue the endorsement.

"Our republic cannot withstand a long period of liberal, anti-family super-majorities in Congress," Roberts explained. "If Scott Brown surprises the pundits next week, then we know that the end is near for the abject failures of Pelosi, Reid, and Obama."


In the closing days of the Massachusetts campaign, Catholic Families for America will implement its Catholic voter outreach model, which it is using in dozens of races this year. The group recently announced the beginning of a nationwide pro-family townhall tour that will occur throughout 2010. The first stop on the tour is in Wichita, Kansas, next Tuesday, January 19th -- the same date as the Massachusetts election.

Catholic Families for America is a nationwide grassroots organization run by lay Catholics, with offices in Austin, Texas, and Washington, D.C.
