ANOTHER LOW INFORMATION CATHOLIC! OY VEY!
I’m a Catholic, an Independent & in good conscience could not vote for Trump & there are a lot of us disposed not to vote for Trump for good reason. We are not rabid left wingers, but only seek the truth measured against Jesus. You ask why. I cannot reconcile Jesus‘ teachings against what Trump & his enablers consider good & right. Measured against his moral life, his/their method of carrying out policies, the judgmental method of bullying, Jesus could not fathom supporting such a person nor a right wing party platform. I measure my support based upon the tenets of Christ not some rabid vitriol of select use of Scripture & loud verbal assault. The amount of hate couched in righteousness that is spewed from the mouths of many commentators only divides & dies nothing for reconciliation.
Think about that. I like your fire for Jesus, but let’s talk about supporting a guy & people that consciously obviates the truth & facts & whose radio programs influence so many Catholics.
I have spent almost 500 pages (in two books heavily footnoted) laying out the Democrats, you wrote me a paltry paragraph with a few sentences. If you really cared about these issues you would read my book: "Knocked Off the Donkey" https://jesseromero.com/store/knocked-donkey-burro-no-more-book-0 and "A Catholic Vote for Trump" https://jesseromero.com/store/catholic-vote-trump and respond to the facts I have layed out.
On the Catholic side, I am in contact with several Catholic Exorcists, they have all told me that the Democrat party is diabolically afflicted as a result of their continual ritual killing of babies. This is liturgical worship for the demon god Molech. I will warn you once as a fellow Catholic, if you knowingly with full knowledge and your free will vote for a pro baby killing Politician, his sin of legalizing murder is now your sin as well. If you die in unrepentant mortal sin you (and I) will go to hell.
THE CATECHISM SAYS:
1867 The catechetical tradition also recalls that there are "sins that cry to heaven": the blood of Abel (murder),139 the sin of the Sodomites,140 the cry of the people oppressed in Egypt,141 the cry of the foreigner, the widow, and the orphan,142 injustice to the wage earner.143
1868 Sin is a personal act. Moreover, we have a responsibility for the sins committed by others when we cooperate in them:
- by participating directly and voluntarily in them;
- by ordering, advising, praising, or approving them;
- by not disclosing or not hindering them when we have an obligation to do so;
- by protecting evil-doers.
Psalm 106:32-48 "They angered him at the waters of Meribah, and it went ill with Moses on their account, 33 for they made his spirit bitter, and he spoke rashly with his lips. 34 They did not destroy the peoples, as the Lord commanded them, 35 but they mixed with the nations and learned to do as they did. 36 They served their idols, which became a snare to them. 37 They sacrificed their sons and their daughters to the demons; 38 they poured out innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan, and the land was polluted with blood. 39 Thus they became unclean by their acts, and played the whore in their deeds. 40 Then the anger of the Lord was kindled against his people, and he abhorred his heritage; 41 he gave them into the hand of the nations, so that those who hated them ruled over them. 42 Their enemies oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under their power. 43 Many times he delivered them, but they were rebellious in their purposes and were brought low through their iniquity. 44 Nevertheless, he looked upon their distress, when he heard their cry. 45 For their sake he remembered his covenant, and relented according to the abundance of his steadfast love. 46 He caused them to be pitied by all those who held them captive. 47 Save us, O Lord our God, and gather us from among the nations, that we may give thanks to your holy name and glory in your praise. 48 Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting! And let all the people say, “Amen!” Praise the Lord."
