Political posts can be worked onto the AQ board. In fact we do it all the time. Tom’s post regarding Mosques is a good example of how to work political type posts onto the board. So are other posts with known Catholic authors , religious subject matter etc.
That said, we are not a political or “issues of the day” type of site. Please do not to post articles or vanity posts that have nothing whatsoever to do with our subject matter.
As the presidential election goes forward and gets progressively heated, keep this in mind and try to keep it topical.
