The news media loves to bash the Catholic Church and draw attention to any strife within the Christian faith. This time, for once, I’m glad they’re trying to be divisive.
The New York Times writes that this year’s election is causing problems for Catholics, especially on the issue of abortion. You bet it is. The most liberal member of the United States, a politician with no regard for unborn children, an abortionist’s best friend could become the next President. And yet, too many Catholics are poised to vote for the extremely dangerous Barack Obama.
This is insane. How can anyone call himself a Catholic, knowing full well the teachings and doctrines of the Catholic faith, and then go out and vote for the baby-killer Barack? It makes no sense.
The New York Times reports, “In Scranton, Pa., every Catholic attending Mass this weekend will hear a special homily about the election next month: Bishop Joseph Martino has ordered every priest in the diocese to read a letter warning that voting for a supporter of abortion rights amounts to endorsing ‘homicide.’”
I want the clergy, especially Catholic priests to talk more openly about the abortion stances of Barack Obama in the hopes of driving some sense into the minds of the hypocrites in the pews who put on a phony façade every Sunday and are about as Catholic as Madalyn Murray O'Hair.
Any Catholic who votes for Barack Obama is no Catholic and should not only be deeply ashamed, but should never possess the courage to walk into a Catholic church ever again.
If Catholics are divided about this election, it’s only because far too many are so disillusioned that they will dismiss the rights of the unborn in exchange for a litany of leftist propaganda. That’s not sad, it’s tragic. And if bishops and priests want to drill this message home from the pulpit between now and November, I say go for it.
