If you are one of the 54 percent of Catholics who voted for a pro-abortion candidate, you were clear on his position and you knew the gravity of the question, I urge you to go to confession before receiving communion. Don't risk losing your state of grace by receiving sacrilegiously,"

It's interesting, to me at least, that some members of the Catholic faith actually think that Obama - or anyone that agrees with a woman's right to choose - is actively "pro" abortion.
This is where Rev. Illo's arguement falls apart.
Obama is not "pro" abortion. This, by strict definition, means that Obama advocates Abortion at any and all times.
One would think that Rev. Illo knows this. If he does, is this more of a statement regarding his own political affiliations in order to sway the congregation to vote in simular fashion during the next election? Nothing gets a devout religious person's blood-pressure up when they are told that their actions are sending them to Hell.
But what of the alternate consequences that the Catholic Church might face? Could their be a mass exodus from the Catholic church?
