“A South Carolina Roman Catholic priest has told his parishioners that they should refrain from receiving Holy Communion if they voted for Barack Obama. The Democratic president-elect supports abortion rights, and supporting him “constitutes material cooperation with intrinsic evil,” the priest said.
The Rev. Jay Scott Newman said in a letter distributed Sunday to parishioners at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Greenville that they are putting their souls at risk if they take Holy Communion before doing penance for their vote.
“‘Voting for a pro-abortion politician when a plausible pro-life alternative exits constitutes material cooperation with intrinsic evil, and those Catholics who do so place themselves outside of the full communion of Christ’s Church and under the judgment of divine law,’ Newman wrote. ‘Persons in this condition should not receive Holy Communion until and unless they are reconciled to God in the sacrament of penance, lest they eat and drink their own condemnation.'”
IMAGINE if Obama supported pedophilia. Or stealing eagles eggs and eating them. Or if he had a thing like Mike Vick for killing little puppies. And yet people voted for him. All the little liberals would be up in arms, the liberal priests would be opposing him, the professors would be condemning him. But hey, he ONLY supports the legalized killing of human babies, so it’s all good!
