I may be wrong, but Matthew 18:4-7 is a very convincing argument that this is a very serious sin.

The reason is that a pro-abortion politician is up for re-election, one is contributing to the sin of scandal.

Not only it is a question that Obama supports ABORTION, but also that he supports EMBRYONIC STEM CELL RESEARCH, EUTHANASIA, and HOMOSEXUALITY.

The reason being that one is part of the process of corrupting innocents as referred in this passage of the Gospel.

Jesus states that it is better to kill yourself than to cause others to sin...

The passage in question:

Matt 18:4-7

4 Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

5 "And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me.

6 But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.

7 "Woe to the world because of the things that cause people to sin! Such things must come, but woe to the man through whom they come!


In my opinion, IT IS THE SIN OF SCANDAL. Many will believe if the President of the United States (Clinton/Carter/etc.) or the Speaker of the House (Pelosi, a woman), or a Kennedy (Senator Ted), then abortion is okay, and they do not need to listen to the teachings of the Catholic Church.

Since some prominent politicans (Pelosi/Biden/Kennedy, etc) support abortion, then for some innocents, abortion must be okay.

The sin of scandal (which this voting contributes to) is a very serious sin.

There is also the scandal of other positions these politicians support which are serious sins:

Embryonic Stem Cell Research



Abortion is part of the issue, but it is the Scandal of Obama/Biden-Pelosi.
