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/
Tag: Catholics 4 Trump
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:
Sound shocking? It’s not. It is simply the only conclusion one comes to when one looks at the principles and moral laws involved. As a guide, we will be quoting from ‘The Moral Obligation of Voting” written by the Rev. Titus Cranny, S.A, M.A, S.T.L in 1952. As Fr. Cranny states:
The video evidence keeps coming in and at this point it is overwhelming!
All of the videos are listed below in chronological order with dates:
On August 31st, Ann Coulter wrote an excellent column explaining how the media, especially the Washington Post, has been deliberately dishonest in claiming that Donald Trump mocked a New York Times reporter’s disability. In her column she generously cites to previous articles Catholics 4 Trump has written on this issue. She also mentions that a comment we submitted in response to an August 10th Washington Post story on the subject by Callum Borchers was mysteriously deleted. After discovering this, we decided to take apart Borchers’ dishonest piece point by point on our own site on August 15th. You can read it here: Washington Post Deletes Video Evidence Showing Trump Didn’t Mock Reporter’s Disability
Imagine our surprise when, lo and behold, the day after Coulter released her latest column, WaPo writer, Callum Borchers wrote yet another dishonest piece trying to defend himself, his fellow media, and his candidate Hillary Clinton from Coulter’s charges. Oh, if we only had a friend as loyal as Mr. Borchers.
Nevertheless, mission accomplished! Although Borchers was forced to surround the videos with excuses, we have finally gotten the Washington Post to publish important video files of Trump impersonating a flustered general and a flustered Cruz as well as link to video footage of the non-spastic reporter. But that’s not all. As a special favor to Borchers for posting all of the evidence to WaPo readers, we’ve decided to give him one more surprise video to share at the end of this article. You’re welcome, Callum!
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.
There is an excellent, thoughtful, and well written review of Catholics 4 Trump by Maureen Mullarkey over at studiomatters.com.
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.
