The Catholic Church would like to have a word with you. Pass on a little constructive advice. Only take a minute of your time. Have a little chat, the two of you. It’s really no big deal. It’s just that voting for Barack Obama “places the eternal salvation of your own soul in serious jeopardy.”
Bishop Thomas John Paprocki called out the Democratic Party for temporarily removing God from their platform, supporting abortion and recognizing that ‘gay rights are human rights.’
“There are many positive and beneficial planks in the Democratic Party Platform, but I am pointing out those that explicitly endorse intrinsic evils,” the bishop explained.
Gay rights are human rights. Unless Paprocki’s saying their wildebeests, or something. Sorry, Bishop, go on:
“My job is not to tell you for whom you should vote. But I do have a duty to speak out on moral issues. I would be abdicating this duty if I remained silent out of fear of sounding ‘political’ and didn’t say anything about the morality of these issues. People of faith object to these platform positions that promote serious sins.”
“So what about the Republicans? I have read the Republican Party Platform and there is nothing in it that supports or promotes an intrinsic evil or a serious sin,” Paprocki added.
Politics? Where? That’s not political at all. A bishop holding a spiritual gun to the heads of Catholics, telling them one party promotes “intrinsic evils.” You’re not telling anybody how to vote, no. You’re telling them how to avoid being broiled forever like a steak in the fires of Hades. What politics?
