I Didn’t Expect the Bloody Spanish Inquisition…

but then again, maybe I should have:

The Rev. Joseph Illo, pastor of St. Joseph Catholic Church in Modesto, CA, has said voting for Barack Obama amounts to a sin because Obama is pro-choice, and has advised his parishioners they need to confess such a sin to their priest or be in danger of losing their state of grace by receiving communion (which Catholics believe is the actual body and blood of Christ) “sacrilegiously.” In November, Roman Catholic bishops in the United States cautioned Obama against enacting an “evil law” that would deregulate the “abortion industry”, saying it would alienate millions of Americans and sow disunity, Agence France Presse reported.

Just one more in a litany of reasons I left the Catholic Church.
