Seems voting for the devil is against the rules?

Where does it say "Thou shalt not vote for Hillary" ? That's the problem I have with religion. They want you to surrender your mind and let them tell you what's right or wrong, depending on their version of right or wrong.

Did you mean to say religion... or did you mean government, or did you maybe mean both.

I'm pretty sure that killing babies is not in line with Church doctrine.
So, of course they don't want people to end up in hell for voting for baby murderers.

Maybe as a precaution if catholic's decide to vote for Hillary,perhaps they should tie a metal chain to their leg as they head into the polls,in case lightening strikes them

Just in the interest of full context within the article:



In response, the Roman Catholic Diocese of San Diego condemned both pieces, saying the Church does not tell members how to vote in elections and emphasizing that those who vote for Democrats are not automatically damned.

“It’s not a mortal sin to vote for Democrats, number one. And number two, the church doesn’t take positions on this, and we’re not going to,” diocese spokesman Kevin Eckery told the Union-Tribune.

The diocese also said the Oct. 16 insert was not approved by the parish or any of its priests.

“For all I know someone thought that they were doing a service,” Eckery said. “The pastor said it was not something he had reviewed or approved.”

As for the Oct. 30 article, Eckery told the Union-Tribune it was unclear who wrote it and who gave the clearance for it to be printed in the bulletin.

As far as I'm concerned most dems and repubs treat their party like it's a religion...god forbid you say something negative about either or..

Well that sucks


Im Catholic and I have voted Democrat the 2 times I have been able to thus far.. and will do so again.

Outside of 1 issue.. the Democratic positions on issues fall in line much closer to Jesus" teachings than the party endorsing a raping, vahina grabbing, nuclear bomb launching, Putin loving, psycopath

they must have updated the bible. not sure I remember reading the democrats go to hell clause.

Religion mixed with feeble minds either is a salvation, or a weapon.

"There is a special place in hell for women that don't help each other."

You might want to try reading more than just the headline of your own source. It says very clearly that the pastor of that church did not approve the insert. It was done without the consent of the church.

You are just spreading more garbage by posting this, especially with such a misleading title. This belongs in the LOL forum, at best.

The "LOL" forum is reserved for negative things about hillary-to try to make her look like a saint.

(even after they are proven to be facts)
