Today is election day. The Iowa Standard is sharing some segments of homilies that were sent out by Catholic Vote.

Joe Biden, the Democrat nominee for President, claims to be Catholic.

Here is a portion of a homily from a Minnesota priest.

“The gravity and evil of abortion – that is the taking of innocent human life on an industrial scale – can in fact and must serve to eliminate certain candidates from consideration. Support for a major political candidate despite that candidate’s open and zealous support for the right to slaughter unborn children in the womb can only be justified when another issue takes immediate and compelling precedence — and frankly, I know of no such issue. None.

“The scale of abortion and the absolute defenselessness of its victims point to the rationality of our bishops, who in ‘Faithful Citizenship’ indicate clearly that abortion is n fact the preeminent issue of consideration when evaluating candidates. Abortion takes precedence. Over other issues that are real. That are real and challenging. Even other evils.”
