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/

From Fred Rotondaro of “Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good” to John Podesta:
John, I thought you might be interested in this report from the CACG exec director Chris Hale on efforts to have the Catholic org community promote the Iran Treaty. There is a tremendous amount of potential in these inter Faith orgs including the ability to reach so me working class voters, Fred
Excerpts of E-Mail from Christopher J. Hale, Executive Director of Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good (emphasis added):
Please listen to this thoughtful and informative discussion on what a Catholic needs to do in the upcoming election:
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:
Yesterday, Donald Trump posted a very classy tribute video to Mother Teresa on her canonization day.
In contrast, Hillary’s surrogate newspaper, the Washington Post, took the occasion of Mother Teresa’s canonization to publish a disgusting attack piece against the Catholic Saint:
In India, where Teresa carried out the majority of her work, that legacy was called into question last year, when the head of the Hindu nationalist group Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) sparked outrage by criticizing her intentions.
“It’s good to work for a cause with selfless intentions. But Mother Teresa’s work had ulterior motive, which was to convert the person who was being served to Christianity,” RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat said at the opening of an orphanage in Rajasthan state in February 2015, the Times of India reported. “In the name of service, religious conversions were made. This was followed by other institutes, too.”
The reaction to Catholics 4 Trump from the left has been humorous as well as ironic. The one complaint we hear most often from non-Catholic liberals is that, “You Catholics must listen to your pope! He said Trump was not a Christian and you can’t vote for him.” First, progressive “separation of Church and state” non-Catholics lecturing Catholics that they must listen to a pope tell them how to vote is rich. Second, approximately zero of these people actually read what Pope Francis said on the matter, much less the later clarification from Fr. Lombardi at the Vatican Press Office.
Indeed, the most depressing thing we have found since starting this effort is the amazing amount of US Citizens who get their voting information from headlines and shallow media hit pieces. In fact, we are willing to bet that a large number of leftists and nevertrumps will simply read the headline of this article and then immediately point out the same tired claims we stated above. Because of this sad state of affairs, we found it necessary to clarify this matter to put to rest, once and for all, the confusion willingly aided by a complicit dishonest media.
The following comes from The Deus Ex Machina Blog ~ “A blog dedicated to chronicling the ‘Restoration of all thing in Christ.'” The author, S. Armaticus, a Catholic, recently explained why he is voting for Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton. His opinion echoes elements of our own opinion expressed on The Remnant not too long ago:
Donald Trump is a salesman, a businessman, and a competitor. He is old school, tough, blunt. But most importantly, he deals firmly in reality. Because to get results in business you have to deal in reality or you go bankrupt. I believe this key fact is a huge one for Catholics. The very philsophical foundation of our Faith is recognizing that there is an objective reality and conforming our thought to be in accord with it.
In contrast, all liberals, especially Hillary Clinton, live in a world of ideology completely unmoored from reality. This is inherently dangerous… When leaders start trying to conform society to principles against reality you end up with totalitarianism because you need the force of the state to try to continually change a reality that will not change…
Although Trump does not have a 100% Catholic platform, and would never be elected in our society if he did, the one thing he has is common sense. He does what works to get tangible results. With a man who operates based on reality, on what works, on the practical, one can have a conversation. With a progressive ideologue, there is no conversation. Because that person rejects all of the reality based premises you are starting from. They work off of the false premises that white people are all oppressors and have “privelege”, all men are sexists, there are no differences between genders, gender is a social construct, following one’s religious teachings upholding the natural law is discriminatory and prejudiced. There is no compromise with such an individual because they are living in an unreal world of their own construction.
Hillary has selected self described “Traditional Catholic” Tim Kaine. Mr. Kaine is so traditional in fact, that he supports abortion rights, public abortion funding, and partial birth abortion. William D’Antonio, a Catholic University sociologist, described Kaine as a “Pope Francis Catholic.” Thus, we are now thrust back to the days of “Catholic” Pro-Choice New York Governor, Mario Cuomo, who famously invented the position that he was “personally opposed” to abortion, but for “a woman’s right to choose.” This moral fig leaf didn’t work then and it doesn’t work now. One cannot be “personally opposed” to the killing of babies, yet not lift a finger to give them any legal protection. Similarly one cannot be “personally opposed” to Hillary, yet not lift a finger to see to it she doesn’t win the Presidency.
