A sin to vote?

Sorry Dru, and other Catholic minded folks out there... but this really chaps my hide...

This is the kind of religious extortion that gives churches a bad name. I hope the congregation walks out on him.

Yeah. Because that's the REAL issue that the de-facto leader of the free world should be elected on - his opinion of how women control their own fertility. Not foreign policy, not economics, not anything like that. Hoo no.

*Sigh*

It's morons like that who give Christians a bad name.
It's morons like that who give Americans a bad name.

I think I'll carry on my evil, pro-life, pro-love, pro-acceptance interpretation of Christianity.

You've seen the discussion of this chez filkertom, right?

Among the things pointed out by commenters: this priest is going against his church's official doctrine. Including but not limited to the fact that the Pope, himself, congratulated Obama and wished him well.

Bleah. I hope they walk out on him, too.

If anything good comes of this, it might be that more people will realize that priests muttering threats of Hell are a worthless guide to behavior.

Yeh, but then again, I'm a Really Bad Catholic when it comes to my stance on issues of sex and reproduction -- pro-choice, pro-gay-rights, all that jazz.

For what it's worth, as Vixyish reports, the guy's own diocese has repudiated him. Idiots come in every religious flavor.
