Priest Wants Penance From Obama Voters


GREENVILLE, S.C. — A Greenville priest says that his parishioners should do penance if they voted for Barack Obama.

The Rev. Jay Scott Newman, priest at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, said that his congregants shouldn’t take Communion until they do penance for supporting “the most radical pro-abortion politician ever to serve in the United States Senate or to run for president.”

But Newman also said that church law doesn’t allow him to refuse parishioners the sacrament.
