Catholics for Obama

From Conservapedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Catholics for Obama describes Christian religious people that cast a ballot for reasons other than what the Church preaches. The Catholic Church opposes abortion candidates. For example, somebody that is a Catholic for Obama might have been swayed by Barack Obama's endorsement from Colin Powell. The Church is explicit in placing children of the womb ahead of the endorsement from well-known individuals.

Matthew 15:8-9 Jesus says, "These people Honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far away. Their Worship is a farce, for they replace God's Commands with their own man-made teachings."

Unknowingly

If a Catholic for Obama supporter unknowingly voted Obama, was naive to the candidates position, it is then a non-conscience selection cleared of fault.

Knowingly

If you are a Catholic for Obama supporter that knew the candidates' abortion position and still voted Obama, you are required to abstain from the Eucharist and go to confession. [1]

In a letter distributed to parishioners at St. Mary's Catholic Church in South Carolina, the Rev. Jay Scott Newman said supporting him [Obama] "Voting for a pro-abortion politician when a plausible pro-life alternative exists, constitutes material cooperation with intrinsic evil." In addition, "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."
