Catholic Bishop: Vote for Obama "Stretches the Imagination" | LifeNews.com

  • It is inconceivable to me how Catholics could support such policies. Indeed, Roman Catholics who support abortion rights and vote for a candidate because of those policies, place him/herself outside of the life of the Church. In so doing, they also place themselves in moral danger.
  • Is it possible to vote for somebody despite their support for these policies? To my mind, it stretches the imagination, especially when there is another option.
