Explanation of Rating System

An “Endorsement” rating indicates that the candidate’s religious values, views, and record as a public official are aligned with Catholic moral principles, especially those pertaining to five non-negotiable issues addressing the sanctity of life, marriage, and sexual ethics based on our own review and/or review by other trusted organizations.

A “Favor” rating acknowledges that there is evidence that a candidate’s record and public statements are substantially in line with Catholic moral teaching while his/her opponent’s record provides substantial evidence from statements, actions, and allegiances opposed to Catholic moral principles. We accept the unambiguous teachings of the Magisterium of the Church. Please refer to Pope John Paul II in the Gospel of Life. (Evangelium Vitae, para. 73.3) The Pope in this encyclical is guiding Catholics to vote for candidates who will most likely limit public policy that promote intrinsic moral evils.

A “No Endorsement” rating occurs based on certain guiding principles. We disqualified any candidate who sought an endorsement from the Stonewall Democrats, a San Antonio homosexual activist organization that opposes the universally held Christian doctrine that proscribes homosexual acts as intrinsically evil. Another reason may be that a candidate or candidates running for an office did not respond to our repeated requests for answers to our questionnaire and we did not find sufficient information through other sources to make a prudential judgment to endorse the candidate(s) or we gathered information from the candidate’s voting record or public positions that warrant a “no endorsement”. Another important consideration in our evaluation is the experience and competency of the candidate especially if a candidate is running unopposed.
