Pell on politicians and conscience

There is an article on EWTN's Catholic News Agency, Cardinal Pell Explains Role of Church and Faith in Public Life

Quotations:
"A Catholic is someone who believes Christ is Son of God, accepts His teachings and lives a life of worship, service and duty in the Catholic community," [...] "Catholics are not created by the accident of birth to remain only because their tribe has an interesting history."
And importantly for politicians in many Western countries, including Great Britain:
"All Catholics who continue to reject important Catholic teachings, even in areas such as sexuality, family, marriage, abortion, euthanasia, cloning where 'liberals' claim the primacy of conscience rules, should expect to be confronted, gently and consistently, rather than comforted and encouraged in their wrongdoing,"
