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.
