Single Issue Voting

A priest in South Carolina knows exactly how to alienate parishioners who voted for Obama.

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. 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.

It's as if the only intrinsic evil that exists in the world is a politician who thinks abortion should be legal. I can hear the confessionals echoing now.

"Bless me, Father, for I have sinned. I voted for Obama. And you're a jerk."
