In a video message about the sanctity of human life and the moral responsibility of being a faithful Christian, Fr. Mark Goring, director of the Catholic Charismatic Center in Houston, Texas, explained that Catholics who vote for "aggressively pro-abortion politicians" are "stupid Catholics" and "they share the responsibility for the death of these unborn children."
The blood of aborted babies is "on your hands, if you vote for and support an aggressively pro-abortion politician," said Fr. Goring.
“Our western world is experiencing a devastating moral decline," said Fr. Goring in his message. "One of the things that I find absolutely incomprehensible is the number of Catholics who vote for an aggressively pro-abortion politician."
"I have a special name for these Catholics, and there are many of them," he said. "I call them stupid Catholics."
"These Catholics don’t realize that by voting for an aggressively pro-abortion politician, they share the responsibility for the death of these unborn children," said the priest. "The blood of these unborn children is on your hands, if you vote for and support an aggressively pro-abortion politician."
“Listen to God’s Word," said Fr. Goring. "Saint Paul tells in first Corinthians, chapter 3, verse 16 and 17, ‘Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s spirit dwells in you? If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him. For God’s temple is holy and that temple you are.’"
He continued, "We also hear in Jeremiah, chapter one, verse 5, the Lord says, ‘Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you.’"
“As Catholics we need to recognize the dignity of human life and the sacredness of human life," said Fr. Goring. "As a Catholic you cannot vote and support a politician who is promoting abortion."
"In the name of Jesus you have to vote against pro-abortion politicians," he said.
Fr. Goring is a priest with the Companions of the Cross, founded in 1985.
