How to Vote Catholic
Sanctuary of Our Lady of Fatima
Bishops and priests are warning Catholics that it can be a mortal sin to not vote for the most electable anti-abortion candidate.
Voting for a candidate who opposes the Church’s teaching on abortion ‘places the eternal salvation of
your own soul in jeopardy’
“...a vote for a candidate who promotes actions or behaviors that are intrinsically evil and gravely sinful makes you morally complicit and places the eternal salvation of your own soul in serious jeopardy.”
–Bishop Thomas Paprocki, Springfield, Ill.
“A Catholic cannot support a politician who presents abortion as a general norm.”
–Cardinal Javier Lozano Barragan
As to a law permitting abortion, “...it is never licit to obey it ... or to vote for it.”
–Pope St. John Paul II
Any Catholic politicians who advocate for abortion ... jeopardize their salvation. Any Catholics who vote for candidates who stand for abortion ... suffer the same fateful consequences.
–Bishop Michael J. Sheridan,
“To vote for such a candidate is to willfully participate in that candidate’s choices and deeds. It is a sin, and must be repented.”
–Father Matthew Habiger,
Human Life International
“To vote for such a candidate ... with
the knowledge that the candidate is
pro-abortion is to become an accomplice
in the moral evil of abortion. If the voter also knows this, then the voter sins mortally.”
–Father Stephen F. Torraco, PhD.
