Illinois Catholic Bishop Warns Voting Democratic Supports 'Intrinsic Evil' Because of Abortion, Gay Marriage: VIDEO


Bishop Thomas John Paprocki of Springfield, Illinois isn't instructing you "for whom you should vote" but warns that voting Democratic is supporting "intrinsic evil" and putting your soul at risk, Right Wing Watch reports.

Says Paprocki in a video:

Certainly there are "pro-choice" Republicans who support abortion rights and "Log Cabin Republicans" who promote same-sex marriage, and they are equally as wrong as their Democratic counterparts. But these positions do not have the official support of their party.

Again, I am not telling you which party or which candidates to vote for or against, but I am saying that you need to think and pray very carefully about your vote, because a vote for a candidate who promotes actions or behaviors that are intrinsically evil and gravely sinful makes you morally complicit and places the eternal salvation of your own soul in serious jeopardy.

  2. Aren't the positions held by the republican party about how to treat the poorest among us equally sinful in the eyes of the Catholic church?

  3. What a silly little man. Go and worry about your fellow bishops forcing themselves onto little boys, Peprocki.

  4. The catholic church attempts to hold on to it's power (money) through the promotion of fear. This is what it has done since the beginning. The EGO holds on tight to those reins - but, the horse died years ago. Forgive the fearful and ignorant for they know not what they do.

  5. Fear and intimidation -always the cornerstone of Catholic bishops. Shut up until you honestly confront your own sins and quit dabbling in politics lest you might have to start paying taxes-

  6. I am not telling you what party to vote for, but your soul is in danger if you vote Democrat...........

    NEEDS TO BE REPORTED TO ILLINOIS AUTHORITIES -- unless he has placed the churches on the tax rolls.

  7. Couldn't both parties be seen as promoting actions or behaviors that are intrinsically evil and gravely sinful? The church is against the death penalty and abortion.

    I guess the bishop is telling everyone to just not vote.

  8. Since the advent of that 'saint', JPII, the Catholic Church has been backing away from its activist position of working for Social Justice. Under Ratzinger, it has again become the church that covertly supplied Vatican funds to Hitler and his Brown Shirts during the Beer Hall Putsch in 1924.

  9. I'm sorry, but all I could think about while watching this little twirp was ramming my hard junk down his throat and watching his eyes roll back as I shot right into his mouth.
    Wow...that felt good to say !!

  10. The Catholic Church is often wrong, but never in doubt.

  11. And we are supposed to give a crap about what these child molesters say. Why are they given any credibility anymore in this world. This institution has over and over and over again proven through it's actions and deeds of it's employees's that it may be the instrinsic evil among us.

  12. The Catholic Church's followers are slipping away, these priest are getting desperate.

  13. I am sure that when it comes to intrinsic evil, this guy is an expert...

  14. So, vote for the Mormon? How did this become US Catholic policy and why, exactly, are they exempt from taxes if it is?

    Posted by: David | Sep 27, 2012 7:15:34 PM

  15. This is another reason why (from polls) Catholics are leaving in droves (converting to other religions or....just no religion..)

  16. Spoken by a balding boy-f**ker wearing a dress....yeah, got it.

  18. I took a few minutes...googled "irs/catholic church investigations". Got lots of good info and several complaint forms there. It takes 5 minutes to fill one out. Just think what would happen if we all did that !!! Name names, link videos !

  19. All these American bishops should have a great little reunion in the warm beyond. They've gotten so far afield of the basic Christian Doctrine. I somehow think that calling parishoners 'intrinsically evil' might fall short of Jesus' expectations ....

  20. Thomas John Paprocki is a profoundly insignificant man.

  21. That guy is total creep.

  22. Ahh the Romans again professing hate. Perhaps this "Bishop" should be reminded that what he preaches is relevant only to Roman Catholics and very few of them would even give a damn.

  23. Why is the Catholic church still exempt from taxes? Surely this qualifies as political bias.

  24. Dear Bishop,
    Im not christian, so shove it up your bung hole. I'll vote for whoever I choose.
