WASHINGTON, October 31, 2008 ( – An audio clip by Texas Auxiliary Bishop Rene Gracida was sent this morning to 2.9 Million Hispanic Voters via email.  The clip, which is also running on radio and TV in swing states, says:

  Dear Friends,

  We only have days left before a critical election to elect a new president.  In this moment, like no other moment in history, Hispanic votes will decide the future of the United States.  That means that we have a great weight of responsibility.
  During this election, there are many Catholics who have told the Catholic people that it is ok to vote for Obama for president.
  That is simply not true.  Unfortunately, it is a lie.
  Please, read the words of a beloved Hispanic bishop, Bishop Rene H. Gracida, who has faithfully served the Hispanic Catholics of Florida and Texas.
“I am Bishop Rene A. Gracida, reminding all Catholics that they need to vote in these elections with an informed conscience.
  A Catholic cannot say that he/she voted in this election in good conscience if he/she votes for a candidate in favor of abortion.
  Barak Hussein Obama is a candidate in favor of abortion.”
