The Catholic Case for Donald Trump

Why the Nevertrumps Were Wrong

I recently came across a column by Dr. John Crosby, titled “Trump: On Counting the Cost,” in which he shared his perspective of the election particularly as a challenge to Catholic supporters of Mr. Trump. Other prominent Catholic writers such as George Weigel and Dr. Robert George raised similar concerns in the past. While Dr. Crosby raised some legitimate observations regarding the now President-Elect, I found his presentation to be incomplete in several areas.

First, Dr. Crosby inadequately represented the position of Catholic Trump supporters as mere hoping for “possible pro-life judicial appointments” due to Mr. Trump’s “half-hearted indications of making” such nominations. But is this an accurate presentation of either Mr. Trump’s commitments, or the broader reasons he was supported by so many conservatives?

Following Donald Trump’s historic upset on Tuesday, many in the media (yes, THAT discredited mainstream media) are asking how the president-elect will unify the country. Even in his own victory speech early Wednesday morning, Mr. Trump said:

We’re Just Getting Started!

trump-win

Friends, Catholics 4 Trump is not done! We are just getting started. We’ve created a great network of politically active Catholics and other Christians who value life, religious protections, and our country. We can use this network to be a voice to remind our new President of his campaign promises and to fight for him against the far left and establishment GOP media. These people are already trying to tell him he must cave to their will and start apologizing.

It is CRUCIAL that these people are not allowed to hijack a Trump presidency and we all are crucial to this effort. We all helped to dispel the disabled reporter lie which was crucial in changing many minds about Trump across America and we look forward to an even larger and expanded effort. Tell your friends about us and let’s grow this wonderful movement to help our new President. Thank you for everything you have done to help us and most importantly let’s thank God for this historic win!!

Let’s all redouble our efforts to Make America Great Again!!

The Catholic Obligation to Vote for Donald J. Trump: An Application of Theological Principles to the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election

I. Introduction

SINCE THE NOMINATION OF Donald J. Trump as the presidential candidate of the Republican Party, Catholics have divided themselves into different camps with respect to their attitude towards the 2016 United States Presidential Election. Some have voiced their support for Trump, some for Hillary Clinton, while others have committed to voting a third-party/write-in candidate. Still, others have noted their disdain for this election, altogether abstaining from voting.

Catholic Millennial Woman Sees Through Hillary’s Smear Campaign

A young Catholic millennial woman, Kayla Adanalian, recently made us aware of an excellent piece she wrote about accountability.  She, unlike many of her generation, is not fooled by the media/ left freak out over Trump while exhibiting zero outrage over Hillary’s crimes. Despite Hillary and the media’s propaganda campaign, this young Catholic woman gives us hope for the election  and the future. There are young women out there who see Hillary’s last second smear campaign for what it is and also recognize the real vital issues at stake in this election. With permission we are republishing Ms. Adanalian’s piece below. It can also be found on her blog which we encourage you to check out at: https://kaylaadanalian.wordpress.com/2016/10/13/the-fear-of-accountability/

Cardinal Ratzinger’s 2004 Letter Forbids Catholics to Vote for Hillary Clinton Under Pain of Mortal Sin

cardinal-joseph-ratzinger

There are currently dishonest self-professed Catholics who are shamelessly distorting an out of context footnote from a letter by Cardinal Ratzinger in 2004 to promote voting for pro-abortion Hillary Clinton in this year’s presidential election.

The letter clearly states the following Catholic moral teaching, which all Catholics who continually vote Democrat (pro-abortion) ignore at their own peril:

Maureen Mullarkey: A Catholic Case for Donald Trump

ClintonSkates

There is an excellent, thoughtful, and well written review of Catholics 4 Trump by Maureen Mullarkey over at studiomatters.com.

Mullarkey writes:

Jackson’s initiative is addressed specifically to Catholics because so many of us are invested in the theater of ourselves as high moral theologians. Catholics twist themselves into hangman’s knots with deliberations on the lesser of two evils. Which is the lesser, Trump or Clinton? Catholics are enjoined from choosing any evil. If Trump is as horrid as Clinton, the principle of double effect does not apply. Should not commitment to right behavior keep us home and away from the shabby compromises of the voting booth? Do we not put ourselves in moral jeopardy voting for Trump?

Oh, please! There comes a time to grant a bit of credit to Mae West: “Between two evils, I always choose the one I haven’t tried before.”

The Catholic blogosphere is sodden with Prufrockery: Do I dare to eat a peach? Do I dare descend the stair? Dare disturb the universe of my own fine preferences? It is a masturbatory game destined to finish with the election of a vile, traitorous woman greedy for power and money. A woman with a squalid history of shady dealings, evidence gone missing, and lies with calamitous consequences.

Jackson is making the point that refusing to choose is, in fact, a choice. It is a self-admiring one that permits the chooser to gaze on his own clean hands instead of on the outcome of his decision-by-default. Abstention from this election is the vain choice of moral cowards.
