Feast of Holy Innocents: Vigil at Diocesan Cathedrals, Pleading with Bishops for Clarity on 'Pro-Choice' Politicians who Support Abortion

'The question the vigils will propose is this: 'Should we vote for Herod after he oversaw the murder of innocent children? If Herod presented himself for Holy Communion, should we serve him the Body and Blood of Christ while his hands are stained with the blood of the Innocents?'
'If the answer to both questions is no, participants are asking the bishops to clearly declare that the ethical heirs of Herod - the advocates of abortion - are to be treated the same way; no votes, no communion.' Randall Terry

MEDIA ADVISORY, Dec. 26 /Christian Newswire/ -- On December 28, 2007, vigils will be held at several diocesan Cathedrals offices declaring their support for the bishops to plainly declare that Christians may not in good conscience vote for any candidate who supports the killing of the unborn by abortion, and that such candidates should not present themselves for communion.


Background: December 28 is the day when the Church remembers the children slaughtered in Bethlehem at Herod's order, when he sought to murder the Christ child.


The question the vigils will propose is this: "Should we vote for Herod after he oversaw the murder of innocent children? If Herod presented himself for Holy Communion, should we serve him the Body and Blood of Christ while his hands are stained with the blood of the Innocents?"
If the answer to both questions is no, participants are asking the bishops to clearly declare that the ethical heirs of Herod - the advocates of abortion - are to be treated the same way; no votes, no communion.
If the bishop believes that we could support Herod politically after he murdered the innocent, or that we should serve him Holy Communion if he approached the altar, participants would like the bishop to explain this reasoning to the faithful.
