The Modern Christian Temptation to Confuse Personality With Character

One thing I have noticed a lot of well meaning Catholics doing when it comes to Donald Trump is to confuse personality with character. In our soft American parishes today we are used to hearing constant messages about being polite and nice often at the expense of any real substantive Catholic teaching. The problem is that there are plenty of people who are very polite, nice, and well-mannered on the outside, but corrupt on the inside. Very many politicians come to mind (think Hillary Clinton). They talk a very good game, but their actions are quite a different story.

Enter Donald Trump. Trump is the exact opposite of what almost every social justice priest at your local guitar Mass says a Christian should be. He’s brash, boasting, confident, tough, unyielding, demanding, and blunt. In our very feminine and politically correct Church of 2016, these attributes alone are enough to horrify sensitive Catholic parishioners and have them mistakenly assume the man is evil , immoral, and Satan incarnate.

Get a Good Look at What Life Will Be Like Under President Hillary

Dinesh D’Souza’s new movie on Hillary Clinton’s America and the history the Democratic Party premiers this weekend. I urge you to go see it in the theater both to support D’Souza, an outstanding conservative filmmaker, and to get a preview of what life will be like for you and your family under a Hillary Clinton presidency. If this movie does not convince you to vote against her, I’m not sure what will.

Campbell: A Catholic Apology to Trump and His Voters

MMC

Marjorie Murphy Campbell at The Christian Review penned an outstanding response to the condscending Weigel/George hit piece on Trump and his voters in which she surgically attacked their hypocrisy. Holding themselves out to be Catholic experts, Weigel and George hurled unfounded accusations at Trump and attempted to malign and shame his voters.

Does this sound familiar? Don’t we experience this often as Catholic Trump supporters? Haven’t we encountered many Catholic #nevertrumpers who are quick to give all sorts of figures on the left, liberal bishops, and Pope Francis the benefit of the doubt no matter what questionable statements they make? However, when it comes to Trump and his supporters, these #nevertrumps feel as if the normal moral rules of charity do not apply. Instead, they seem to think that assuming the worst about these people is somehow acceptable. Why? Because Trump is “evil” of course, and his supporters are either evil or stupid. But are these the acts and words of devoted Catholics? Is it morally acceptable for Catholics to use the shame and scare tactics of the radical left to silence and pressure those they don’t agree with?

Campbell didn’t think so. Even though she was an undecided voter, she still thought the behavior from Weigel and George was so revolting that she owed Trump and his voters an apology on behalf of all Catholics. The following are some highlights from this excellent piece. It should be read in its entirety at the link below the quote:

Jack Kerwick Responds to #NeverTrump Criticisms

Weigel

Jack Kerwick over at beliefnet wrote an outstanding response to some of the repeated unfair criticisms of Trump bandied about by the neoconservatives. Sadly many conservative Catholics have been fooled by them over the past year Mr. Kerwick’s piece was in response to George Weigel (pictured above) and Robert George’s National Review piece which condescendingly lectured all Catholics that voting for Trump is immoral. In reality, voting for any non-establishment candidate is immoral to these men since they make a living off of establishment funding.

The piece deserves a full read at the link below, but here are some highlights:

Yes, Catholics Can Vote For Trump

AW Morgan writes:

I asked a friend who is a Catholic priest whether a Catholic can vote for Donald Trump without committing a mortal sin, given his political shifts, shakiness on abortion and the things he has said and done.

Answer: Yes, a serious Catholic can vote for Trump. And given what my friend said, I add this: anyone who cares about the unborn can safely vote for Trump because he will attempt to stop the immivasion of pro-abortion Democrat voters…

In a homily about papal infallibility, a priest at a distant church I attend occasionally said Donald Trump,not Pope Francis, held the true Catholic position on immigration. Catholic teaching does not demand open borders or unlimited immigration, as the pope and the bishops suggest, and the details about immigration policies are matter on which Catholics of good faith can disagree.

Anyway, more immigration means more abortion because immigrants vote for pro-abortion Democrats. But perhaps because so many of the bishops are leftists, as the story about the Reagan-Helms bill shows, that is fine.

Bottom line: If you’re Catholic and you care about the unborn, you can vote for Donald Trump.

No Place to Escape To…

If Hillary wins, there will truly be no place to escape to. Religious persecution, expanded abortion laws, restrictions on homeschooling, confiscation of guns, a continued war on our police, unlimited illegal immigration, exporting of jobs overseas, more Americans on welfare, dependent on government, and voting democrat far into the future. In the words of Reagan, if we lose freedom here there is no place to escape to. This is truly the last stand on earth. Don’t let history record that “those who had the most to lose did the least to prevent its happening.” Stop Hillary, save the country. Vote Donald Trump in November. 

A Time for Choosing

Trump Hillary

This is the most critical presidential election in the history of the United States. Hillary Clinton, a corrupt, radical pro-abortion,  anti-Christian  career politician threatens to change the face of America forever. If elected, she will name three to four Supreme Court justices, cementing Roe v. Wade into the Constitution and losing the court for generations if not forever. Hillary Clinton opposes home schooling and believes it is the government’s right to educate children and not the parents. She will restrict religious speech and persecute Christians who refuse to support her radical social agenda. She will promote illegal immigration and allow millions of unvettted illegal immigrants into our country. The illegal population will vote democrat far into the future so that no conservative can have a viable chance to be elected president. All Catholics have a moral obligation to vote for the only viable alternative to Hillary Clinton in this election: Donald Trump.
