Fr. Andrew was invited to lead the opening prayer at the 2012 Colorado Republican State Assembly and Convention in the Magness Arena at the University of Denver. The moral challenges facing our country are not caused by political affiliation, but rather by attacks on religious freedom. He invites all people of conscience to uphold religious freedom.
"The Church has rejected the totalitarian and atheistic ideologies associated in modern times with 'communism' or 'socialism'." - Catechism of the Catholic Church 2425
"This is not an issue between liberals and conservatives, Democrats and Republicans. This is an issue between democracy and socialism. Now when we talk about socialism, that sounds politically incorrect but as a Catholic, I've earned a free pass to talk about socialism, because others who have stood with us have DIED at the hands of socialists for the past two centuries! And we know a little something about religious persecution... Socialism is a foreign threat to our democracy. I am tired of this experiment and I hope you are tired of it, too!"
