This was not mentioned on those voting machines. It appears that if you voted for Obama as a Catholic, you need to go to confession and do penance for your electoral sin. Otherwise, Obama will go to the White House and you will go to hell — at least in Greenville, South Carolina. Just ask Rev. Jay Scott Newman.
The Rev. Jay Scott Newman of St. Mary’s Catholic Church told that his parishioners that they should not take Communion until they do penance for supporting “the most radical pro-abortion politician ever to serve in the United States Senate or to run for president.” However, he noted that the Vatican will not permit him to refuse the sacrament to suspected Obama voters.
Now this is an interesting twist on laws that prevent people from forcing others to disclose their votes to offer either rewards or penalties for voting for particular candidates. Damnation or salvation is not the typical bottle of booze or free meal, but it will do. There is also that little matter of tax exemption based on non-political activities.
Of course, it could have been worse Rev. Newman could have had John McCain’s image actually embossed on the communion wafers.
