Catholic Church Removes Father James Altman For Saying Catholics Shouldn’t Vote for Pro-Abortion Democrats

A Wisconsin priest who attracted national controversy for telling Catholics to reject the Democratic Party because of its radical pro-abortion stance has been removed from ministry. On Friday, the Diocese of La Crosse announced a decree from Bishop William Callahan for the removal of Father James Altman, the Catholic News Agency reports. “The obligation of a bishop is to ensure that all who serve the faithful are able to do so while unifying and building the Body of Christ,” the diocese said in a statement. “Bishop William Patrick Callahan, in accordance with the norms of canon law, has issued a decree for the removal of Fr. James Altman as pastor of St. James the Less Parish.”
