An Open Letter to all Devout Catholics

Posted on July 27th, 2008

Two years ago Pope Benedict XVI in one of his encyclicals stated that one of the functions of the Church is to encourage the faithful to participate in political activities “freely and responsibly”.

As a consequence of that, Edward Cardinal Egan and the Catholic Conference of New York State issued a voters’ guide indicating how candidates for public office and the legislature stand on issues of interest to the church such as ABORTION, GAY MARRIAGES, TAXES, EDUCATION TAX CREDIT, JOB OPPORTUNITIES and other social issues.

Now Cardinal Egan is taking a strong position on the issue of ABORTION by chastising a very popular politician Rudy Giuliani, a well known supporter of abortion, for taking the Eucharist during the New York visit of the Pope.

“The Catholic Church clearly teaches that abortion is a grave offense against the will of God,” said Cardinal Egan.  “Throughout my years as archbishop of New York, I have repeated this teaching in sermons, articles, addresses and interviews without hesitation or compromise of any kind.” This message is very clear and all of you should remember it when you vote! All those politicians that support ABORTION, whether Republicans or Democrats, should not be allowed to receive the Eucharist in our Churches!

Remember that when you vote on November 4, 2008! My opponent, Peter Abbate, is a supporter of ABORTION!
