Last night Pittsburgh CBS affiliate, KDKA gave approximately three minutes of news time to Pittsburgh Bishop David Zubik to guilt Catholics into voting for “pro-life” John McCain while repeatedly insisting that he couldn’t tell anyone who to vote for.
“The Pope has said you know we’re so concerned about financial bankruptcy but maybe the question that we’re missing is that perhaps we’re becoming spiritually bankrupt.”
And in considering the issues, the bishop says one should take precedence over all others.
“The one issue that can’t be minimized is the issue about being pro-life.”
In further Catholic church advertisement, they report he will have all of his churches open Monday so that Catholics can pray about how they should vote Tuesday.
The only way this should be on the news is if it is followed promptly by “This just in from the IRS: ‘Pittsburgh’s Catholic Diocese loses non-profit status.’”
