Another Catholic pastor labels voting for Obama a sin

Parishioners of St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Modesto have been told they should consider going to confession if they voted for Barack Obama, because of the president-elect's position condoning abortion. The Rev. Joseph Illo, pastor of St. Joseph's, sent a letter to his 15,000 parishioners, urging them not to "risk your state of grace" by taking communion without confessing first.
