Donald Trump is a human being with flaws, just as I am. Hillary Clinton is best described as a fundamentally flawed human being. Frankly, she is evil.
Donald Trump is not a perfect candidate for a Catholic, none of those in any of the primaries were. The closest was probably Dr. Ben Carson from a morals and policy point of view.
Hillary Clinton is fundamentally not someone for whom any Catholic can vote. With Donald Trump, there is some hope, that through a Supreme Court under his watch, the matter of abortion might eventually be addressed. With Hilary Clinton, it never will be addressed and the matter will get only worse. She will radically continue Obama's policies, and, extend them.
In an article in Conservative Review the matter of Catholics dramatically shifting to Hilary Clinton deals with some rather startling statistics.
My recollection is that some bishop or advisor in Mexico suggested that the Pope should think in a certain manner about a "wall" and that a question was planted by a Mexican or Hispanic reporter on the aeroplane back to Rome. Once again, Bergoglio blurted out a statement that he had no business stating.
Bergoglio, covertly referring to Donald Trump said that he was not a "Christian" because he would build "walls."
Trump handled the unjustified and obnoxious attack by the Pope quite well, knowing he could not win it. He was quite justified in his initial comment that any religious leader to question the faith of a person was "disgraceful" and the pope was being used by Mexico "as a pawn."
Trump was right. Bergoglio's comment was disgraceful and he was being used, though, I have no doubt he was a willing pawn.
As a Catholic, I was embarrassed by this outrageous and unjustified statement by the Bishop of Rome.
Human migration is a big issue for this Francis. He is entitled to his opinion. He is not entitled the facts or to tell nations how they should govern themselves in affairs that are none of his business. Nation states have the fundamental right to protect their borders and live in security.
For a man who has a whole floor of a hotel reserved empty for his own protection, he is one to talk about security. For a man who lives in a State protected by walls and massive security, with guns, I should add, he is one to talk about, "building walls!"
Catholics in Canada voted en masse for Justin Trudeau, a Catholic and a man who demanded that all candidates would be pro-abortion and who has just ushered in euthanasia. American Catholics may be about to do the same with Hillary Clinton who will fight any attempt by States to limit abortion and ensure that a Supreme Court will never overturn Roe vs. Wade.
To Trudeau and Clinton, abortion is a sacrament! There is not enough blood to satisfy these two.
If Catholics vote in large numbers for Hilary Clinton, as they are expected to do, and if any do it because of a non-existent "verbal duel" which was a one-sided attack by the Bishop or Rome himself, history will judge Catholics and this Bishop or Rome, extremely harshly.
If you are a Catholic and you vote for Hillary Clinton, God help you.
The judging won't just be by history.
