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.
