New Zealand’s Catholic Bishops are urging voters to say “no” to the euthanasia referendum and ask that voters give “serious thoughts” to the effect of cannabis on vulnerable young people when considering the cannabis referendum. The General Election is scheduled for October 17.

The six bishops make those calls in their 2020 Election Statement-Whakapuaki Pōti 2020, which also urges people to consider the poor and vulnerable when voting, but expressly says it is not the bishops’ role to tell people who to vote for.

Fittingly for Māori Language Week-Te Wiki o te Reo Māori, the Election Statement is published in Māori and English throughout.

Praise the Lord
