Fr. Jay Scott Newman, Catholics, and BHO

Just a day or two ago I was complaining about how BHO and his Democratic machine have cowed the Catholic hierarchy, and then along comes this priest at St. Mary's in South Carolina who has the stones to come out and say it: you can't vote for BHO and simultaneously be in be in a state of grace to receive the Blessed Sacrament. That's because in giving him your vote, you have materially cooperated with the most radical pro-abortion politician in the nation in helping him further his Godless agenda. I have no doubt that Fr. Jay Scott Newman will come under severe attack for this, and that many of the attacks will come from those who call themselves Catholic. I hope his Bishop has the courage to support him. I wish, oh I wish, that His Holiness would make men like Fr. Newman (and others, there are others, a few others, with courage) Bishops, and retire some of the nincompoops who currently hold the offices.

As a faithful and practicing catholic in Greenville, SC, I support Fr. Newman. Thank you for supporting him on your blog as well. Unfortunately, we are without a bishop at the current time and the administrator will likely reprimand Fr. Newman somehow. Fr. Newman needs our prayers and vocal support.

Amen! As a parishioner in Father Newman's parish, I can assure you that he is not afraid to speak the truth and to guide his flock. We are indeed blessed to have him!
