More Priests Condeming You To Hell

“The priest at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in downtown Greenville has told parishioners that those who voted for Barack Obama placed themselves under divine judgment because of his stance on abortion and shouldn’t receive Holy Communion until they’ve done penance.”

Don’t you hate it when religious groups attempt to control people with humiliation and threats of hell? This priest it trying to punish the members of his congregation that dared to vote differently than him. I really don’t see why any person would stand for this type of controlling behavior from their priest or anyone else. Personally, I would leave any group that tried to punish me for the way I voted and I have no respect for anyone that won’t. What’s the difference between this and any other type of mental torment? Here’s one, this group has tax exempt status in return for them not endorsing political candidates. BTW, John McCain never took a hard stand on abortion, either. So, I wonder what this priest is really judging Obama on?
