How We Vote Impacts Our Salvation
I post a lot of Vortex episodes because Michael Voris expresses some thoughts that I couldn’t say better. Personally, I like his presentation as well as his words, but I know that his “style” is not everyone’s “cup of tea”.
That’s why I also post the scripts, or at least portions of them. Some people won’t watch the video, but they will read the words…and vice versa. On the Church Militant TV web page, there is almost always a link to the script for the Vortex; I just try to make it a little easier for you here.
In today’s Vortex, Michael Voris commends Bishop Paprocki on his clear statement that “to vote for a candidate who promotes actions or behaviors that are intrinsically evil and gravely sinful makes you morally complicit and places the eternal salvation of your own soul in serious jeopardy." (And I have also noted this bishop’s statement in two posts.)
Voris adds some further thoughts, and I recommend watching the video (below), or reading the entire script here.
As a “teaser”, here’s an excerpt (my emphases):
No one who seriously believes in God – that Jesus Christ is God Almighty in human flesh – could entertain for the slightest instant the idea of voting for a supporter of child murder and sodomy. And the reason is because we have our heads screwed on correctly and our moral compasses pointed to heaven.
These acts are evil and they are individual actions that are committed against other individuals – not ethereal concepts like JUSTICE or POVERTY that need to be realized in the tangible here and now.
Of course, no one votes in favor of poverty; but since poverty isn’t an actual deed, it doesn’t begin to measure up to the action of chopping a child up in the womb and sucking out the remains with a vacuum cleaner. THAT is an action – a deed – and it is evil to the core.
No amount of rationalizing and high faulting academic babble can change that. It is what it is, and it is most definitely child murder. And to vote for a candidate who supports this unspeakable evil places that person squarely on the path to Hell.
Such a person becomes morally culpable in the killing because in our form of governance, the killing is brought into existence as a legal right by the people voted into office.
