Vatican prelate says bishops partly responsible for election of Obama

AN INTERESTING ARTICLE FROM THE VATICAN appeared this week. Former St. Louis Archbishop Raymond Burke, now the prefect of the Apostolic Signatura (something like the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court) says that the U.S. bishops’ document “Faithful Citizenship” was confusing enough to lead many pro-life Catholics to vote for the pro-abortion Barack Obama in last November’s election. Burke charged that the document created “a kind of false thinking” that issues other than life were worthy of equal consideration. He zeroed in on a phrase in the document that said a Catholic could vote for a pro-abortion candidate as long as they do not do so because of the candidate’s support of abortion. Here is a link to the news article.
