“The question to ask is this: Are any of the candidates of either party, or independents, standing for something that is intrinsically evil, evil no matter what the circumstances? If that’s the case, a Catholic, regardless of his party affiliation, shouldn’t be voting for such a person.”Catholics who vote for Obama are choosing the most radically pro-abortion candidate in history. He not only approves of abortion in all circumstances; he favors the murder by neglect of newborns who survive abortion. A vote for Obama is a vote for abortion, an intrinsic evil. Anybody with half a brain knows exactly how radical Obama's position is. He has gone out of his way to support and reward Planned Parenthood, the leader of the abortion industry.
Obama appears to have no fear of God. Will Catholics follow him as their replacement Messiah?
My pray is: GOD please deliever us from EVIL and this EVIL administration .
With every Rosary I pray for this delieverance from this EVIL and I started also praying the Divine Mercy Chaplet...along with Pray and Fasting as the good God leads me! IT IS A MORTAL SIN : a vote for Obama , people wake vote for LIFE , not DEATH ! We need to hear this from Our Shepherds : please speak the TRUTH of this matter!
Of all the Catholics I know who made their presidential candidate support known, I can't think of even one who was pro-Romney.
I'm not sure what your point is, but I certainly expect all the members of the faux Catholic groups like Catholics for Obama, Catholics United, Catholics for Marriage Equality, Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good, the Nuns on the Bus, members of NETWORK, etc. voted for Obama.
Then there are the Catholics who voted neither Obama nor Romney. I know Catholics who supported Virgil Goode because they felt in conscience they had to disqualify both mainstream party candidates. I disagreed because of the level of evil of the Obama administration already illustrated. So I voted to minimize that evil to the degree possible.
But "Catholics" who voted for Obama are guilty of objective mortal sin. There is nothing that Obama stands for that can balance his support for abortion, infanticide, contraception, the destruction of marriage, and abuses against religious liberty. Whether those Catholics are personally guilty of mortal sin depends on the three factors required to commit a mortal sin: serious matter, the knowledge that it's serious, and full consent of the will. Only God can assess their personal guilt, but objectively, a vote for Obama was a mortal sin. But...many Catholics live in a perpetual state of mortal sin -- for example, those who consistently practice contraception with no intent to change who perpetuate their guilt by receiving sacrilegious Communion week after week. I often pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy for those poor folks.
Haha. Obama does not support infanticide. That's BS. Many Catholics voted for Obama and there's nothing you can do about that. You and other conservative Catholics need to put a cork in it, because nobody is afraid of your threats of hell.
It's not MY threat. Did you ever wonder where the expression "There are no atheists in a foxhole." came from? I'm praying that God gets the last laugh when repentant sinners come to Him. I'd hate for Satan to get the last laugh over any soul, even Obama.
Abortion is legal in the US, end of story. If you don't like it, don't practice it. I also find it ironic that pro-life people are also often pro-capital punishment, and pro-military - don't both ultimately end in death for 1 or more people?
Would you feel the same way about it, Amilio, if the law allowed all people named Amilio to be killed? The only people who approve of abortion are already born and willing to kill people small and helpless -- the ultimate bullying. As for capital punishment, that's a false analogy. The person found guilty of a capital crime has been tried, had the right to appeal, etc. The state has the right, in fact the duty, to protect its citizens. But capital punishment should always be a last resort. As for wars, they also should be a last resort, but certainly if someone drops a bomb on New York City, the government would have to do everything possible to stop the bombers.
Abortion is the deliberate, calculated murder of an innocent person. Each of us once was that innocent little one in the womb. Fortunately for us, our mothers didn't kill us. Thanks, Mom!
Mary Ann. I am sorry to say, but yourhaboyed title,'Yes, Catholics, It IS a Mortal Sin to Vote for Obama!" is not supported by the bishop's quote. I believe that the Magisterium's position is NOT what you article's title says. I believe that the Magisterium has said that we cannot vote for a pro-abortion candidate IF we are voting for him BECAUSE he IS pro-abortion. I am Catholic.. and a Catholic who wnats and tries to follow all of the doctrines of the Magisterium. But, I cannot agree with you regarding the titile of your article.
You've oversimplified, Anonymous. There must be a "proportionate" reason to vote for the pro-abortion candidate. Please don't give me capital punishment. You cannot call the execution of a few criminals who have received every court opportunity and have been found guilty with the systematic murder of 1.5 million innocent babies every year.
The only "proportionate" reason to vote for a pro-abortion candidate is to limit the killing to the degree possible as voting for someone like Bush or Romney.
Bishop Rene Gracida, bishop emeritus of Corpus Christi has a letter explaining this at http://www.catholicculture.org/culture/library/view.cfm?id=6159
There is absolutely no possible "proportionate" argument to justify voting for Obama, the most pro-abortion politician in history who has done everything he can to expand the killing and expand taxpayers' involvement in it.
I stand by my headline. Those who voted for Obama knowing his position (How could anyone NOT know?), knowing how serious the murder of the unborn is, and giving full consent of the will to the election of this abortion extremist committed a mortal sin.
