Eat Cracker, Go to Hell…

From Talking Points Memo:

A South Carolina Roman Catholic priest has told his parishioners that they should refrain from receiving Holy Communion if they voted for Barack Obama because the Democratic president-elect supports abortion, and supporting him “constitutes material cooperation with intrinsic evil.”

Rev. Jay Scott Newman told parishioners that anyone who voted for Obama (54% of Catholics, btw) are putting their souls at risk and,

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.

Wow, “eat and drink their own condemnation”… that’s colorful…

  1. This only strengthens my belief that the church will not allow a moderate Republican party to emerge.

    It pisses me off to no end that many see the sides as Pro-Life or Pro-Abortion. Being Pro-Choice in no way means one is Pro-abortion.

    A personal favorite quote from the Talking Points Memo link is “I don’t understand anyone who would call themselves a Christian…” If there is a God, he alone would have a right to call my Christianity into question. The thing I hate (yes, hate) most about people, is their inability to recognize their own insignificance.
