I am still trying to wrap my head how it’s possible to be Catholic and an overt supporter of (vs. perhaps a reluctant voter for) Donald Trump. Specifically, I’m wondering how it is possible for any practicing Catholic to reconcile Donald Trump’s view on women with our Church’s, as best articulated by the late Pope John Paul II.
Women are made in the image and likeness of God. Donald Trump objectifies them. Our Church elevates them. Both of these attitudes apply to your mothers, wives, daughters, and sisters. Are these two positions possible to reconcile?
