Casino Referendum - Municipal Vote - Oct. 27, 2014

Casino proposal link:

Referendum Question:
In the upcoming Municipal Election Oct. 27, brother Knights will be asked if they favour a casino coming to our community.  Please consider these documents when you vote. 
Catechism of the Catholic Church:
2413 Games of chance (card games, etc.) or wagers are not in themselves contrary to justice. They become morally unacceptable when they deprive someone of what is necessary to provide for his needs and those of others. The passion for gambling risks becoming an enslavement. Unfair wagers and cheating at games constitute grave matter, unless the damage inflicted is so slight that the one who suffers it cannot reasonably consider it significant.

Letter written by Cardinal Collins on the topic.
