Actually, my Catholic beliefs do include a “rating” of evil acts—venial vs. mortal sin.
Inflating the number of people coming into this country illegally doesn’t sound as evil as advocating abortion on demand. Calling a woman “Pocahontas” doesn’t sound as evil as calling an unborn child “a choice.” Twitter tirades don’t sound as bad as a law allowing a woman to abort her baby up through the birth (infanticide).
I don’t object to people questioning Trump’s personality, his tirades, his tendency to pick and choose his facts. But again, I can’t help but think of the alternative. We saw a taste of Secy of State Clinton’s personality when she went off about “irredeemable-s.” In other words, she was willing to dismiss whole communities of adults as…well, not worth worrying about. I’ve read what she thinks of unborn babies.
YES, I’m willing to downplay his many faults when I think about the woman whose leadership we escaped by a few votes, thanks to the foresight of our Founding Fathers! If that makes me a bad Catholic–well…guilty. For the sake of the unborn, I will be a bad Catholic.
Put up an alternative who can beat the wiles and very deep purses (thanks to silly celebrities and big business who keep donating) of the Democrats! I would love to see Rick Santorum sitting in the Oval Office, but he will never, ever make it anywhere near–Democrats chew him into little bits.
This reminds me of those people who would rather die honorably in a duel instead of staying alive and being “dishonored.” Oh, brother! We’re talking about a country that is willing to kill its children here! So you don’t trust the President–WHO else is there?! You don’t think he’s done anything to help rid the nation of abortion? WHAT did President Bush do? Or President Obama? And what would President H. Clinton have done?!! It makes me shudder to think of it.
Even Jesus asked which is better, the son who said he would do a job, and didn’t, or a son who was rude about doing the job, but did it?
