    A Roman Catholic told me today that NOT voting is a sin according to the RC church.

    I goggled that, but all I found was that some believe it is a sin to vote for Pro-abortion candidates.

    Does anyone have any info about not voting would be a sin for Catholic.

    And while we are at it, do we as Christians have a Responsibility to vote?

    I don't see that post as saying that not voting is a sin.

    In fact I don't see sin referenced anywhere in that quote.

    The Apostle Paul says that we should "pray without ceasing".

    Does that mean that we are sinning any moment that we are not praying?
