You said it better than I could have.

**Democrats aren’t Jack Kennedy anymore, they’re baby killers, and why people who call themselves Catholics don’t see that, I’ll never understand.**

When one looks at the Catechism of the Catholic Church and sees that anyone who even assists (in any way) with an abortion is excommunicated..............it tries my brains to try to figure out why these Catholics can’t see the truth.

No Obama vote for me.

The other day, a freeper was trying to claim that Catholics can vote for a proabort IF that candidate’s position on abortion is not the reason for the support-as if a candidate can be a good guy when he’s not advocating the brutal torture and dismemberment of thousands of innocent babies each day.

Dear Salvation,

“When one looks at the Catechism of the Catholic Church and sees that anyone who even assists (in any way) with an abortion is excommunicated..............it tries my brains to try to figure out why these Catholics can’t see the truth.”

That would be persons whose assistance is formal and proximate.

Remember that in Catholic canon law, punishments are applied narrowly, benefits more broadly.

The penalty of excommunication, latae sententiae, for participating in the crime of abortion likely does not extend to politicians who support the legality of abortion.
