Carolina Catholic, in honor of Respect Life Month, features an interview of Bishop Michael F. Burbidge. The show focuses upon the consistent ethic of life beginning with the right to life and the dignity of the human person, and our call to defend human life and other human rights, from conception to natural death, as our fundamental obligation as Catholics to respect the dignity of every human being as a child of God.
In this powerful show, Judi Paparozzi and Christine Vayo had the great privilege of speaking to Bishop Burbidge about Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship and the call to political responsibility that all Catholics have to live and vote according to a well formed conscience based upon the teachings of Jesus Christ and His church here on earth. Bishop Burbidge stressed the Catholic Church's protection of all human life and dignity regarding the issues of abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, the rights of prisoners and those living in poverty, and the need for immigration reform in the United States while emphasizing the great need for prayer during these difficult times in our country.
