Priest: No Communion for Obama voters

This article demonstrates the frustrating lunacy of political ideology filtered through religion. I think this priest deserves the highest level of censure for seeking to use people's faith as a means of political retribution.

One of the galling elements of this story is the irrational focus on one issue. I grant that abortion is a serious matter, but it's not the top item on the president's agenda. At least I hope it isn't.

Christianity has always seemed to me a religion preoccupied with death and over death. Judaism has its quirks as well, see the Motl case, but Christianity cannot make a sentence without a subject, a verb and some death-related idea (pace, Joe Biden).

People in the U.S. need to re-claim privacy and decorum. Not everything on one's mind should be made public, especially in politics and religion.
