Love you upant, thank you for the kind thoughts. Again, I have been reading all the comments and thinking about it. Here is what I did. I called into EWTN Open Lines Tuesday and talked to a priest who was answering questions about Pro-life and Pro-choice and why it is ESSENTIAL, that we Catholics are Pro-life and, and, and vote Pro-life.
Again, for all intensive purposes I am pro-Life, but have voted for Pro-Choice candidates. The last election I abstained from voting at the national level, instead only voting for local issues.
So, the call screener was very nice in guiding my question. Here was the question I asked the priest, “Father, thank you for taking my call, this is a conundrum for many Catholics who are otherwise Pro-life. Do we vote for a Pro-life candidate although we disagree in immigration and environment and it seems Pope Francis has disagreed as well or can we abstain.”
Well, the Father’s response was very enlightening and very loving. Pro-Life is the primary issue we Catholics vote on because imagine without the sanctity of life this then leads to Eugenics (Picking and choosing who is born) and Euthenasia. OK, the Father knew me in his heart and knew that would get to me. Then he went onto discuss how atheist societies like the Communist and Nazis have always taken to killing the unborn. Then he said, I should vote and I should not be derelict in my duty to vote.
OK, that’s it. I’m voting for Trump and I’ll always vote for the Pro-life candidate. Now, I have to wait for the Church to open up and confess my sins. It’s no longer a sin of ignorance. I know what I have to do.
Finally for anyone reading on the call screener did recommend a Catholic voting guide that is featured on EWTN. Here is the link:
I recommend all Catholics go that site. It’s very enlightening. For the Catholic that is on the fence, yes, you are a good Catholic but you need to be a better one. Remember, sympathy, love and tolerance; don’t be of this world and fall into the habit of listening to the media. The further away you can get from common thought into Religious and Spiritual thought the more you realize that media in general is slated towards agendas. So, vote Pro-life. Vote for Trump. Pray for Trump and Trump Supporters. And Pray for discernment and repentance, there is no reason to belittle your fellow American. No. God, calls us to understand all people, especially when it feels like we are disagreeing. Strong emotions, means something you have to work on. Bonding with all people and praying for their needs is what God calls us to do.
