Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Space shuttle launch

I guess I need to pay attention to the news more often.  Then again, considering the usual crap they pass off as news these days, mever mind.

Anywho, Space Shuttle Endeavour launched this evening.  I wasn’t aware of it until I was pulling into my neighborhood this evening and saw a huge bright orange flash light up the southeastern night sky.  Even living about three hours from Cape Canaveral, I was able to see the shuttle clearly.  That…was…cool!

SC Catholic priest not giving communion to Obama supporters

Good for him.  From Breitbart:

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.”

The Rev. Jay Scott Newman said in a letter distributed Sunday to parishioners at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Greenville 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. (Apparently, referencing a man’s legal birth name is a no-no. Henceforth, please refer to JFK as JK and LBJ as LJ, m’kay? – Ed.)

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

There is nothing in the Bible that tells you that you must vote FOR someone, but there is much guidance in Scripture that you are to vote AGAINST anyone that perverts God’s will. As a matter of fact…:

“It was not an attempt to make a partisan point,” Newman said in a telephone interview Thursday. “In fact, in this election, for the sake of argument, if the Republican candidate had been pro-abortion, and the Democratic candidate had been pro-life, everything that I wrote would have been exactly the same.”

Exactly right. If a pro-life Dem runs against a pro-abortion Republican, then the Christian is to either vote for the Dem or vote for neither one.

Hope you’re sitting down for this one:

“Father Newman is off-base,” said Steve Krueger, national director of Catholic Democrats. “He is acting beyond the authority of a parish priest to say what he did. … Unfortunately, he is doing so in a manner that will be of great cost to those parishioners who did vote for Sens. Obama and Biden. There will be a spiritual cost to them for his words.”

Father Newman’s words impose no spiritual cost whatsoever. Pro-Obama Catholics’ votes and sentiments are what will be of immeasurable spiritual cost! This “Catholic Democrats” group are nothing more than a gaggle of false prophet geese, leading the lost further down the road to perdition.

This parishoner’s words sum the point accurately:

“I don’t understand anyone who would call themselves a Christian, let alone a Catholic, and could vote for someone who’s a pro-abortion candidate,” said Ted Kelly, 64, who volunteers his time as lector for the church. “You’re talking about the murder of innocent beings.”

He’s right, and there is no amount of spinning or denying that changes that truth.  People are entitled to their own opinions, but they are not entitled to their own facts!
