"No cookie for you!"
A Catholic priest in South Carolina has told his flock that their support of Barack Obama is sinful, and they cannot receive Communion until they apologize.
In a letter to his parishoners, Rev. Jay Scott Newman of St. Mary's Catholic Church in Greenville, SC, said, "voting for a pro-abortion politician when a plausible pro-life alternative exits [sic] constitutes material cooperation with intrinsic evil." He warned that anybody who voted for Barack Obama "should not receive Holy Communion until and unless they are reconciled to God in the Sacrament of Penance, lest they eat and drink their own condemnation."
The only other major contender for the White House was an insane old man and a shrill, stupid woman who knows nothing of the world, so parishoners could argue that no such plausible alternative existed.
"Holy Communion" is a savage Catholic ritual in which adherents believe they are literally eating the flesh and drinking the blood of Jesus Christ. The practice is one of many reasons why Catholicism is widely regarded as a gutter religion for superstitious, filthy peasants.
