Cuckoo for Catholicism!

And people still wonder if separation of church and state is a good idea.

Let's hear some crazy from Rev. Jay Scott Newman:

"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."

I love the smell of radical ignorance in the morning.

Ugh. It's funny how the official position of the Catholic Church is anti-abortion AND anti-death penalty... yet most Catholic Conservatives are strangely quiet about THAT right-to-life issue...

Agreed! Why is it that they focus so much more on their abortion stance and not on the capital punishment stance? This is exactly the kind of crazy that pushes so many people out of the Catholic church.
