That’s a pretty powerful ad aimed at Catholic voters, urging them to remember that issues like marriage, the right to life, and religious liberty are more important than jobs and the economy. The bit at the end about how God is watching your vote, and you had better vote in a way that will withstand the “test of fire” is either bracing (“This stuff really matters, and you cannot afford to be indifferent to it”), or over the top (“Vote right or you’ll go to hell”), depending on how you look at it.
