West Coast Priest: Obama-Voters should Confess

Now there's a second priest, on the west coast this time, that is reported to have told his parishioners to the sin of voting for Obama.

AmP breaks down the AP report.

Second priest says Obama-voters should confess

The AP report was so short (and the reporting so horrible) that I have to pick it apart.
My comments in [brackets]:

A Roman Catholic priest has told parishioners they should confess if they voted for Barack Obama because the president-elect supports abortion rights. [I'm sure he asked them to confess the sin of voting for Obama, not confess that they voted for him.]

The Rev. Joseph Illo said parishioners at St. Joseph's Catholic Church shouldn't risk losing their "state of grace" by receiving Communion sacrilegiously. [No, I'm sure the priest said those who commit a mortal sin are thereby deprived of the "state of grace". Seriously, this counts as religion reporting?]

He delivered the message in a Nov. 21 letter and at Mass. [I bet it was a bulletin.]
