I’ll never understand why Catholics vote Dim. If you are going to condone abortion, gay marriage, etc. then leave the Church. I have no problem with intellectual disagreements with the Church, I have them myself and I left.

However, if you are going to call yourself a Catholic, then you have to conform your life to the Church’s teachings, which includes not voting for pro-choice legislators - especially those legislators who call themselves Catholic and yet continue to vote against the Church’s teachings.

If Catholics vote to support abortion they are excommunicating themselves and cannot be communicated unless the seek the Sacrament of Reconciliation, repent, and promise to change/amend their ways.
