SPRINGFIELD - Leftist organizations like People for the American Way and RightWingWatch.org are in an uproar over comments Springfield Illinois' Bishop Thomas John Paprocki made in a recent commentary video about the grave responsibility of voting. Bishop Paprocki's comments challenge both Democrats and Republicans on their party platforms.
"I have a duty to speak out on moral issues," Illinois capital city's Catholic offical says.
"A vote for a candidate that supports actions that are intrinsically evil and gravely sinful makes you morally complicit and places the eternal salvation of your own soul in serious jeopardy."
When was the last time a Protestant or an evangelical pastor preached that strongly about one's actions in the voting booth?
