Priest Urges Catholics who Voted for Obama to go to Confession

A California priest has garnered international attention and strong praise for pointing out the moral peril of Catholics who voted for President-elect Barack Obama despite being aware of his agenda to aggressively promote abortion.

"If you are one of the 54 percent of Catholics who voted for a pro-abortion candidate, you were clear on his position, and you knew the gravity of the question, I urge you to go to confession before receiving communion," wrote Fr. Joseph Illo, pastor of St. Joseph's Catholic Church in the Stockton diocese, in a letter to his parishioners. "Don't risk losing your state of grace by receiving sacrilegiously."

I am Catholic. I am also a conservative. I do not understand why so many Catholics vote for the Democrats. The Democrats are against the teaching of the Catholic Church. Pro-Abortion, Pro-gay, they are the ones who want to take religion out of everything. I just dont get it!

The same reason that other whites voted for Obama - he's black and it's "cool" and "multicultural" to vote for a black guy, especially one whose followers drone vacuous slogans about "change".

This is the official position of the Catholic Church.

Priests are warned not to give Holy Communion to Catholic politicians who are pro-abortion.

How Ted Kennedy--and Jimmy Carter, who is Baptist--can think of facing their Maker, in light of their pro-abortion stance, is beyond me.

Under the Obama position on this, five minutes prior to birth the child is not a human being (and thus may be killed), and five minutes after birth it is a human person with a soul whose life is recognized and protected under the Law.

This is insanity, since there is no evidence for this sudden miracle that transforms life into human life as soon as it is born--apparently just for the convenience of the abortion mills!

Change to what? Nobody wants to answer that question. I agree with the priest as a Catholic how can you vote for someone who wants to take a fully grown fetus and suck out its brain? How can anyone say this is ok. This is satanic. Maybe Balack Ocommie thinks this is a voodoo ritual??

The Catholic Church does not want homosexual priests. When a young man seeks to enter the priesthood, he is asked if he has a healthy sexual interest in women. If he says "No," he is not eligible for the priesthood. The Church wants this to be a supreme sacrifice.

I suspect that the chief reason some priests have done evil to children is that they LIED when they 'applied to' the priesthood. They were homosexual from the start and entered the priesthood, hoping and praying that God would cure them.
