It's disturbing that 50 percent of Catholics voted for a pro-abortion presidential candidate. This objective empirical evidence indicates Catholic religious leaders are miserably failing to convey that it's a serious breach of faith to support the evil of abortion.
Apparently these so-called Catholics have no concern for the defenseless unborn baby who's getting its brains sucked out of its skull.
The Lord's Prayer, which Catholics recite at every Mass, states: "Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven." This is an explicit reference that we are to honor God by doing what is pleasing to him, and supporting an overt evil is not only displeasing to God, it's an absolute and complete turning away from the will of God. If religious leaders had the courage to proclaim this truth, just maybe the cold hearts of these indifferent Catholics would change.
The Catholic church expects its members to uphold their religious values when voting. And priests should be making it unequivocally clear that if a candidate is for abortion that's an automatic disqualifier. Meaning, a Christian in good conscience cannot vote for that person without betraying the principles of their faith.
The truth is Catholics cannot reconcile the evil of abortion with the sacred body and blood of Jesus Christ. Catholics who vote for a pro-abortion candidate and then receive Holy Communion without repenting of their grave sin (indifference) not only receive the Blessed Sacrament unworthily, but foremost, they profane and dishonor the holy name of almighty God.
