Texas Bishop: ‘GET OVER IT,’ This Election About Life, True Marriage, Family, Biblical Truth


By Michael W. Chapman | September 22, 2020

Commenting on the upcoming presidential election, Bishop Joseph Strickland, head of the Catholic Diocese of Tyler, Texas, said that all “other issues” depend on a moral, social foundation that supports the sanctity of life, “true marriage,” the nuclear family, and sexual morality “based on biblical truth.”

Those “moral truths” should guide people in making their decision on Election Day.



In a Sept. 18 tweet, the bishop said, “GET OVER IT….this election is about the Sanctity of Life, true marriage between a man & a woman, supporting the nuclear family and sexual morality based on biblical truth….

“[A]ll other issues depend on this moral foundation,” he said, “choose the party that supports these MORAL TRUTHS.”

Bishop Strickland, 61, was appointed to lead the Diocese of Tyler, Texas, in 2012 by then-Pope Benedict XVI.

In a 2018 statement on the supreme importance of the sanctity of life, Bishop Strickland said, “The protection of human life, from the moment of conception to natural death, is an issue of primary importance in the United States, and the State of Texas. Every adult Catholic should vigorously defend life, both in the public square and in the voting booth.”

“Laws which legitimize the direct killing of innocent human beings through abortion or euthanasia are in complete opposition to the inviolable right to life proper to every individual; they thus deny the equality of everyone before the law,” wrote the bishop.
