Springfield, Ill., Sep 27, 2012 / 02:11 am (CNA/EWTN News).- Drawing particular attention to the Democratic Party platforms support for intrinsic evils like abortion and same-sex marriage, Bishop Thomas J. Paprocki of Springfield, Ill. has said Catholics need to think and pray very carefully about their votes in the upcoming election.
My job is not to tell you for whom you should vote. But I do have a duty to speak out on moral issues, Bishop Paprocki said in his Sept. 23 column for the Catholic Times diocesan paper. I would be abdicating this duty if I remained silent out of fear of sounding political and didn't say anything about the morality of these issues.
He said that voting for a candidate who promotes actions or behaviors that are intrinsically evil and gravely sinful makes a voter morally complicit and places the eternal salvation of his or her soul in serious jeopardy.

God Bless you Bishop!!! We ALL care about the poor, but we on the right want them to become rich, while the Left wants them POORER so they will get their vote.
As a Lutheran pastor, I take a similar approach. I won't tell parishioners for whom to vote, but I will speak out against the Democrat positions on abortion and homosexual "marriage," because those positions so clearly go against God's law. And the Obama administration's attacks on religious liberty--I speak out against that, too.
God bless you.

Love your enemies but do not love the devil.
Don't forget SOCIALISM, Bishop. That is one of the worst evils of all.
