The apostate candidate

The apostate candidate

We’ve been told we can’t vote for a pro-abortion Catholic candidate, but is it okay to vote for an apostate Catholic candidate? Michael Peroutka of the Constitution Party is said to be the most pro-life candidate in the presidential election, but in an interview with Fox News he acknowledges that he’s renounced his Catholic faith.

Well, I was raised Roman Catholic. I began then to be influenced by a reform Presbyterian movement. I actually attend a Protestant church now. I don’t think the denomination is actually as important as we believe.

Can a Catholic in good conscience vote for a Catholic who has renounced his faith?
