…and religious hypocrisy is worst of all.
Of course, never mind that the Pope told Bush to not go to war in Iraq. THAT, of course, is conveniently not a damn problem.
From the site:
“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.”
I could simply disagree – and not be mad – if there was consistent and comprehensive “culture of life” philosophy being followed and advocated here. No death penalty, no war, support other people who need aid – the whole thing. But this cherrypicking crap just annoys me to no end. Rather like how Dubya would go on about “big government”, yet he made it huge over the last eight years.
God help anyone who quotes Leviticus at me tomorrow who is wearing a cotton/poly blend (Lev 19:19), trimmed their beard or shaved (Lev 11:6-7) or had lobster (Lev 11:10-12).
Perhaps they’ll wear this Lev 1:8 cotton/poly blend hoodie.
