Barack Obama won a majority of the Catholic vote both in 2008 and 2012. Hillary Clinton, according to pollsters, is poised to do the same. She is leading Trump among Catholic voters by over twenty points. In an age of secularism and a secularized Catholic Church, Democrats have never found it easier to con Catholics. The more they promise to persecute them, the more they can count on their vote.
Trump says that he will lift Obama’s contraceptive mandate; she
promises to enforce it. Trump says that he will appoint justices who
would vote to overturn Roe v. Wade; she promises to protect it.
Trump says that he won’t force taxpayers to pay for abortions; she
promises to ensure that they do. She is implacably opposed to every tenet of the natural moral law. Yet it appears that Catholics stand ready to vote for her.
At the convention, Hillary engineered the most extreme platform ever. Her representatives wrote into it a proposal to undo the Hyde Amendment:
“We will continue to oppose — and seek to overturn — federal and state
laws and policies that impede a woman’s access to abortion, including by
repealing the Hyde Amendment.” “Access” is Hillary’s euphemism for forcing Americans to pay for abortion.
If she wins, she will work to turn Obama’s contraceptive mandate into
an abortion mandate. Her Catholic running mate, Tim Kaine, who
symbolizes the secularization of the Catholic Church in America, has
said that he is determined to get “comfortable” with Hillary’s position
on the Hyde Amendment.
Saint Mother Theresa says
But I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it
is a war against the child, a direct killing of the innocent child, murder by
the mother herself.
And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell
other people not to kill one another? How do we persuade a woman not to have an
abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love and we remind ourselves that
love means to be willing to give until it hurts. Jesus gave even His life to
love us. So, the mother who is thinking of abortion, should be helped to love,
that is, to give until it hurts her plans, or her free time, to respect the life
of her child. The father of that child, whoever he is, must also give until it
By abortion, the mother does not learn to love, but kills even her own child
to solve her problems.
And, by abortion, the father is told that he does not have to take any
responsibility at all for the child he has brought into the world. That father
is likely to put other women into the same trouble. So abortion just leads to
Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, but to
use any violence to get what they want. This is why the greatest destroyer of
love and peace is abortion.
As Father Z says:
Putting aside what one might think
about Trump, I cannot fathom how any even partially well-formed
Catholic could stomach the thought of a Hillary Clinton presidency, much
less voting for her. I’ve been pretty clear about what my
position is: I would vote for the corpse of Millard Filmore if someone
ran it, if that meant keeping Clinton out of the White House.
