Breaking News: Finally! A Catholic Bishop Confirms that a Catholic Cannot Vote for Obama in Good Conscience
Date:10/15/2008

An Open Letter to American Bishops regarding 'Catholic moral teaching' and

the 2008 election presents "the authentic teaching of the Catholic

Church..." concerning "the candidacy of Barack Hussein Obama."

WASHINGTON, Oct. 15 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is being issued by Randall Terry, Founder, Operation Rescue, Washington DC.

The "Open Letter", by Randall Terry, has been sent by certified mail to all U.S. Bishops. (See complete letter at http://www.humbleplea.com.)

Following is the complete response from Bishop Gracida concerning the Open Letter and Faithful Catholic Citizenship. Faithful Catholic Citizenship proves -- using the words of John Paul II -- that a Catholic cannot in good conscience vote for Barack Obama.

"Dear Randall,

I have visited the humbleplea.com website and have read the Open Letter to the U.S. Bishops and the brochure "Faithful Catholic Citizenship."

You have done an excellent job of presenting the authentic teaching of the Catholic Church and applying it to the candidacy of Barack Hussein Obama.

I encourage you to disseminate the two documents as widely as possible. More and more bishops are speaking up in the way you desire.
I hope and pray that their numbers will increase before November 4.

Blessings!

+Rene Henry Gracida

Bishop Emeritus of Corpus Christi"

"We are begging U.S. Catholic Bishops to correct the error put forth by Catholic Attorney Doug Kmiec (and others) that says:

It is time to set the record straight that it violates no aspect of Catholic teaching for a Catholic Voter to endorse, support, or vote for Barack Obama ... (Doug Kmiec, Catholic Attorney and Author, Can a Catholic Support Him?; pg 36.)

... U.S. Catholic bishops have confirmed that it is the intent of the voter, and not the candidate's support for abortion, that determines the candidate's acceptability for the Catholic vote. (Pg. 82, Doug Kmiec, Can a Catholic Support Him?)

"This assertion by Doug Kmiec is false. We pray other bishops will correct the error being taught in their name. We are urging the faithful to read the letter themselves, then call their bishop to urge them to publicly correct the erroneous teaching being put out in their names.

"We also encourage Catholics and Evangelicals to download and distribute this material at their neighborhood churches."
