Catholics risk eternal salvation by voting for pro-aborts
The bishop is Bishop Robert Finn of the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph, Missouri, and here is what he says he would say to a Catholic who plans to vote for Obama:
"I would say, give consideration to your eternal salvation. Because to vote for a person who has expressed a fanatical determination to not only support abortion as it exists now, but to remove all limitations on it through the Freedom of Choice Act and to extend it without any resource, throwing out all the efforts of citizens over the last 35 years to place reasonable limits on abortion; that you, by voting for a person who has expressed his determination to do this, to Planned Parenthood, to NARAL, that you make yourself a participant in the act of abortion. That's gravely wrong and you mustn't do it, because your eternal salvation is tied up with that important choice."
Yikes! Wouldn't you think those words would give pause to even a liberal? How could liberals dispute any of what the bishop said?
Actually, one way they could dispute it would be to point out that "only" 110 bishops have said anything pro-life, and the majority, including L.A.'s cardinal and bishops, have been silent. Do the silent cardinals and bishops disagree with those who have spoken out, or what?
And does the silence of so many cardinals and bishops, including ours here in ole L.A., give cover to Catholics who want to vote pro-abortion?
Anyway, thanks to several pro-life e-newsletters for sending along Bishop Finn's powerful quote to everyone yesterday and today.
