18. What the hell is this? Vote Republican or go directly to hell?!
Edited on Fri May-14-04 09:03 AM by fed2dneck
I always suspected many American bishops were partisan Republicans disguised as spiritual guides, but now they've confirmed my suspicions.

I always thought the Church forbade clergy to get involved in partisan politics. These partisan Repuke, Opus Dei-connected clergy tell us that if we vote for pro-choice politicians, we're denied communion. What they don't bother to tell us is that if we vote for Democrats--even pro-life Democrats--we're going to go to hell. I have a compaint to the Pope now. I plan on lodging a complaint accusing bishops of disguising partisan politics as church morality.
