Bishops Ballot Picks Focus on Mercy, Restorative Justice
November’s ballot contains multiple propositions dealing with California’s criminal sentencing system. As the Extraordinary Year of Mercy comes to a close, California voters have a tremendous opportunity to live our mercy in the Golden State.
The California Catholic Conference of Bishops are urging support for Prop 62, which would end the use of the death penalty, and are opposing Prop 66, which would streamline the legal process in capital cases and weaken critical safeguards against executing an innocent person.
The Bishops are also urging support for Prop 57, the Public Safety and Rehabilitation Act, which would introduce basic restorative justice principals into the dangerously overcrowded prison system, improve the way in which judicial system handles juvenile cases and encourage programs to reduce recidivism rates.
The California Catholic Conference (CCC) has a wide variety of documents and resources to help you understand the issues and applicable Catholic teaching on these three propositions:
As Faithful Citizens we are called to form our consciences by understanding Church teaching then prayerfully and prudentially make our own voting decisions. Please peruse these resources and use them in your discernment and prayer.
Analysis and Catholic Reflection of Ballot Propositions
The Conference has examined all 17 statewide ballot propositions and posted analysis that provides non-partisan background, examines the impact of the proposed measures and offers reflections from Catholic teaching on each proposal. (English or Spanish)
