What can be made of this statement (via John Allen) by Archbishop Chaput:

"I think there are legitimate reasons you could vote in favor of someone who wouldnt be where the church is on abortion, but it would have to be a reason that you could confidently explain to Jesus and the victims of abortion when you meet them at the Judgment," Chaput told NCR. "Thats the only criterion."
