No Communion For You!

November 13, 2008

Proclaiming that a vote for Barack Obama “constitutes material cooperation with intrinsic evil,” Rev. Jay Scott Newman at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Greenville, South Carolina has sent a letter to his parishioners stating that they are putting their souls at risk if they take Holy Communion before doing penance for their vote.

“Our nation has chosen for its chief executive the most radical pro-abortion politician ever to serve in the United States Senate or to run for president,” Newman wrote, referring to Obama by his full name, including his middle name of Hussein.

“Voting for a pro-abortion politician when a plausible pro-life alternative exists 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.”

Sorry, but an institution that covered up the sexual abuse of children by its clergy so often that Massachusetts actually had to create a law in 2002 that mandated the church report these crimes to the police has lost all moral high ground for me.

    I am so glad I gave up on the Catholic Church when I was 16 and witnessed pedophile priest first hand. This so called religious leader now wants to blackmail church goes into repentence for exercizing their constatutional right to vote for who ever they want to. Talk about the kettle calling the kettle black ( no pun intended ) this priest should be defrocked.

    This a prime example why churches of any color should be stripped of their tax exemtion status. The Catholic Church is the biggest slumlord in NYC, Boston, and other North east cities. What is this priest afraide the church will loose young boys to molest by abortion?
    How about the church repenting for the years if not centuries of the promoting and allowing scumbag priest molesting children.
