Penance for What?

The other day I was listening to a religious station on the radio.  I’m not sure what religion it was because I normally don’t listen to the radio and the speaker made the comment that voters in this country put money ahead of life, by choosing Obama over McCain.

It was impossible for me to believe a normal, sane person would make such a statement.  In my mind, voters voted for Obama in part due to the brainwashing they were given by the MSM, but mostly due to his looks and charismatic personality.  The question did stay in my mind however;  did voters really believe what the minister was saying?

This morning AP published the following so at least one person believes

COLUMBIA, S.C. – 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."

His parishioners shouldn’t be told they cannot receive Holy Communion, until they do penance, if they voted for President-elect Obama.  If his parishioners had abortions, then surely he could say they committed a sin but if their only crime is voting – it would seem this guy is way out of line.

National exit polls indicated 54% of Catholics voted for Obama – does that mean all of them are in favor of abortion? 

The Catholic religion should spend more time worrying about what goes on behind closed doors in their churches, and less time judging parishioners.
