(RNS) — A video by a Catholic priest in which he condemns Democrats as “godless” and warns Catholics not to vote for them has gained the approval of at least one American bishop.

“Here’s a memo for clueless, baptized Catholics out there,” said the Rev. James Altman, pastor of St. James the Less Catholic parish in Lacrosse, Wisconsin, in the video.

“You cannot be Catholic and be a Democrat. Period.”

The video, which has been viewed close to 300,000 times, says that the church must condemn immoral politics. Alpha News MN, a website that Minnesota Public Radio reported has ties to  prominent Republican donor Robert Cummins, produced the piece.

Bishop Joseph Strickland of Tyler Texas, endorsed the video on Twitter.

“As the Bishop of Tyler I endorse Fr Altman’s statement in this video,” he wrote. “My shame is that it has taken me so long. Thank you Fr Altman for your COURAGE. If you love Jesus & His Church & this nation…pleases HEED THIS MESSAGE.”

The video begins with a prayer concerning Christ’s blood, followed by condemnations of what Altman calls “godless politicians,” who he says are to blame for America’s problems.
