In a highly-produced nearly-10 minute video that’s gone viral among the Christian right a Minnesota priest says Catholics cannot be Democrats, because they are “godless.
Any who do are going to “face the fires of hell.” He then goes on to attack a wide array of American institutions.
“Here’s a memo for clueless, baptized Catholics out there,” rants Rev. James Altman, pastor of Lacrosse, Wisconsin’s St. James the Less Catholic parish, in the video, as Religion News Service reports.
“You cannot be Catholic and be a Democrat. Period.”
He says no real Catholics voted for Barack Obama, a “godless politician who had the audacity to blaspheme and say, ‘God bless Planned Parenthood,’ the most racist organization on the face of this planet. Founded to wipe out black babies.”
He also calls the Southern Poverty Law Center “one of the most godless, communist, anti-American left-wing radical organizations in the United States.” Black Lives Matter, he says, is “Marxist.” Climate change? A “hoax.” DACA recipients? “Criminal illegal aliens.”
But President Donald Trump is “the one best pro-life president.”
“So just quit pretending that you’re Catholic and vote Democrat,” Father Altman says. “Repent of your support of that party or face the fires of hell.”
“There will be 60 million, and counting, aborted babies standing at the gates of heaven barring your Democrat entrance and nothing you can say whatever excuse you for your direct or indirect support of that diabolical agenda.”
Altman also says “there are way too many people who don’t know the first thing about Almighty God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.”
The video was published to YouTube by the right wing website Alpha News MN, which says it was produced by filmmaker Rebecca Brannon, who appears to work for the website. Her bio on the site says she is an RNC delegate.

No one can believe this GOP senator’s embarrassing ad is real
Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler of Georgia is in a tough race to keep her seat, and at least so far, it seems she’s not sending her best.
Her latest ad baffled many observers, prompting some to genuinely question whether the clip was real. It’s production quality and corniness are so over the top and unprofessional, it’s hard to believe it’s from a sitting senator. And the messaging itself is so hamfisted and unsubtle that it’s hard to imagine it’s an appealing ad for voters, even in Republican-leaning Georgia.
The ad starts with a couple sitting on a sofa talking about how conservative Loeffler is. OK. But then it goes off the rails when it literally says that Loeffler is “more conservative than Attila the Hun.” Yes, really. And it only gets worse.
