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?

CNN is shocked, SHOCKED, to find out that Donald Trump
said some bad things years ago.

Well, isn’t this something! While we all wait for Commissioner Gordon to call an emergency meeting of Gotham City Council, we sit in stunned disbelief over the cartoonish hypocrisy of the media. These wretched human beings spend 24/7 ramming their pro-sodomy, pro-abortion, pro-perversion agenda down the throats of the American people, and now here they are pretending to faint away in horror over Donald Trump’s potty-mouthed locker-room banter eleven years ago.

Shame on Donald Trump, scold the media hypocrites… for talking about the vile things Bill Clinton actually did—things which Grandma Clinton covered up, smoothed over, lied about and denied. Sure, Trump’s horrific banter would be a campaign killer in the America in which I grew up. But today? In 2016…after decades of perversion-peddling by the most powerful people in government, media and entertainment? The word “pervert” itself has lost its meaning under the watch of these perverts. These same charlatans screaming for Donald Trump’s head today, spent the last year demanding that men be given the right to use girls’ showers and restrooms all over America.

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.

Trump: A Far From Perfect Fighting Chance

trump-fight

I used to love politics.

I suppose in a way, I had an advantage. Born in the late 70s, I grew up in Reagan’s America. By the time I was eight years old, I watched the nightly news with my dad every single day. We didn’t talk about it unless I had questions, but it was an unspoken ritual; a thing we shared. I remember that feeling of there being a real man in the White House; a man of courage, and honor, a man who could inspire and lead but wouldn’t talk down to the little guy. I wrote him a letter once, when I was about nine. I got a courteous reply — not from him, of course, but from a White House staffer sending back a pre-signed template in his name — but to me, it was the same thing, and I was elated. Being a little kid with a man like Reagan in the White House was not all that different from being a little kid with a good dad. You trusted him to protect you, provide for you, and do whatever dad stuff needed doing. Whatever came up, he could handle it. Even when you weren’t paying close attention to one another — you doing your thing, he doing his — his mere presence was comforting.

The Only Logical Catholic Position in the 2016 Election

Please listen to this thoughtful and informative discussion on what a Catholic needs to do in the upcoming election:

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:
