Wow, this priest did not mince his words. When speaking to his congregation, Father John Lankeit took every liberty permitted legally to warn parishioners about voting for Clinton. Without using her name, Lankeit contrasted the two potential candidates by their position on abortion and warned Catholics that their soul might be in danger if they knowingly voted for someone who would further the killing of innocent babies.
Prefacing his bold statement by encouraging people to know exactly where the candidates stand on abortion, Lankeit said: “If you do know which candidate and party want to promote and expand abortion, and you still intend to enable them to continue their war on the unborn with your vote, then it is my duty as a priest to tell you that your soul will be in grave danger, especially if you present yourself for Holy Communion after casting such a vote with the full knowledge of what you are doing."
To those in his congregation who may have been calloused by the left's abortion rhetoric, Lankeit reframed it, reports Life Site News. “Suppose a candidate for president promoted a policy that would make it legal for someone to kill a black person if that black person created a hardship for them getting the education they desired. How many of you would be comfortable voting for that candidate?"
After asking a similar question about Hispanics, Lankeit drove the point home: “There is a candidate, in this 2016 race for president, who along with that candidate’s political party does, in fact, sanction the killing of blacks and Hispanics in the situations previously described under one particular condition: That that black person or that Hispanic person is still in his or her mother’s womb.”
