God will judge dissenting Catholic politicians: Bishop Jenky

Catholic World News - February 13, 2012

Catholic politicians who cooperate in an “assault against their faith” should be mindful that they will be called to account for their actions, said Bishop Daniel Jenky of Peoria, Illinois.

“There is a last judgment,” recalled Bishop Jenky. “There is a particular judgment. May they change their minds and may God have mercy on them.”

The Illinois bishop told Catholic News Agency that he is “utterly scandalized” by prominent Catholic leaders like Kathleen Sebelius, the Secretary of Health and Human Services; and Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic leader in the House of Representatives.
