Catholics cannot in good conscience vote for Obama, retired US bishop says

Catholic World News - October 24, 2008

A retired US bishop has issued a public statement declaring that Catholics cannot in good conscience vote for Barack Obama in this year's presidential election. "A Catholic cannot be said to have voted in this election with a good conscience if they have voted for a pro-abortion candidate. Barack Hussein Obama is a pro-abortion candidate," said Bishop Rene Gracida, the retired head of the Corpus Christ, Texas diocese. Bishop Gracida's statement has been released as a potential radio advertisment by pro-life activist Randall Terry.
