Bishop Tobin on O’Reilly: Catholic Politicians Must “Quit Your Job and Save Your Soul”

Bishop Thomas Tobin of Rhode Island clarified his reasons for denying pro-abortion politicians Communion on Tuesday, noting that such politicians are not forced to be Catholic – but if they choose to, they must then “understand what the Church teaches, accept those teachings, and live that faith.” “The most important commitment we can make is our faith, because that defines our relationship with God. Nothing is more important than that. And if your job, your profession, your vocation gets in the way of that, you have to quit your job and save your soul,” said Tobin in an appearance on the FOX Network’s “O’Reilly Factor” Tuesday night.
