It is time to start e-mails flying in Catholic circles to get the word out about how sinful it is to vote/support Obama Barack.

Ironically, one of the more recent statements is by the Bishops of Illinois on this matter:

Elections, Conscience and the Responsibility to Vote - Catholic Bishops of Illinois -- October 2006 (PDF format) -- http://www.priestsforlife.org/magisterium/bishops/illinois-bishops-election-2006.pdf

Ironically, it is the Bishops of Obama Barack's home state that has made the last statement on this issue -- in 2006.

The key quote from this document is:

. . . The first and most essential principle of our social teaching is the dignity of every human person and each one's basic right to life from conception to natural death. Respect for human dignity is the basis for the fundamental right to life. This a non-negotiable principle that is supported by our beliefs but is logically independent of our faith. . . .
