Donald Trump: False Compromise of the Pro Life Community

@Abramo, to say, "nor any Republican or Democrat," I understand if you are pointing out the failure of previous so-called life-supporting presidents. But to suggest it into infinity is saying abandon ship and run ... where?

@Abramo, to say, "nor any Republican or Democrat," I understand if you are pointing out the failure of previous so-called life-supporting presidents. But to suggest it into infinity is saying abandon ship and run ... where? I think we had good candidates and the American people opted for...well, for a good laugh and some hope that all of Trump's (questionable), "winning" would end up in their wallets.

I agree the candidates can't rely on a, "Catholic vote" as they did at one time. The people in the pews are very divided on major issues that would be considered either, "liberal" or "conservative."

Since you brought up the Catholic Church and her bishops, I am going to guess that the division in the Church is not 50/50 but rather "many" vs. "few," and pretty much the same distinction Cardinal Wuerl recently pointed to when discussing those unhappy with Pope Francis. If the Catholic Church is defined this way, I'm not Catholic. But you're "egging me on" 🤫 because I don't think you believe this defines the Catholic Church but only a majority of her current members.

Donald Trump: False Compromise of the Pro Life Community

One thing is pretty certain, @Abramo, that Trump has no intention of being subservient to the Republicans. For one, he's ok with the notion of the Democrats winning the senate in November. For another, as Fr. Guarnizo's article mentions, Trump has promised to add abortion into the GOP platform. The fact that even the most dedicated pro-lifers are willing to cross that line is beyond …More

Donald Trump: False Compromise of the Pro Life Community

@Uncle Joe , I, for one, am not holding my breath over these words of Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin, co-chair of the platform committee: "Donald Trump will have representation as the platform is finalized, but the platform is, 'driven by grassroots Republican people' who represent the party's, 'values and principles.'"

I'm not considering right now the how, but that we must. If "most Catholics" …More
@Uncle Joe , I, for one, am not holding my breath over these words of Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin, co-chair of the platform committee: "Donald Trump will have representation as the platform is finalized, but the platform is, 'driven by grassroots Republican people' who represent the party's, 'values and principles.'"

I'm not considering right now the how, but that we must. If "most Catholics" think their souls are secure while supporting exceptions of rape, incest and the life of the mother, they need to comprehend that such exceptions, wherever they exist, guarantee abortion will continue unimpeded. Flagrant late-term abortionist Carhart himself is quite proud of the fact that he "fits" the woman's story to what will be legally permitted.

@Don Reto Nay I'm not convinced he can hardly be worse, but "holding our noses" as I hear constantly among pro-lifers and voting for, "the lesser of two evils" and demanding everyone else has an obligation to do the same is wrong and dangerous. I don't see how the people of the U.S. can cheerfully support someone promising to add abortion into the GOP platform.

Donald Trump: False Compromise of the Pro Life Community

Would Donald Trump ADD abortion to the GOP platform for the first time in history? Quoted in the article, with April 21, 2016 source: “Yes I would. Yes I would. Absolutely, for the three exceptions…I would absolutely have the three exceptions…”

Donald Trump: False Compromise of the Pro Life Community

@Uncle Joe: "Perhaps even five" is an interesting choice of words. It's the same number of SCOTUS possibilities Trump has on his own list that he is not disclosing to pro-lifers. Hint: They are not on the pro-lifer's wish list, short or long.

Carhart & Maryland Big Abortion's cloak of invisibility to appear in MD's highest court

This case has come to a verdict, 7-0 against Mr. Glenn's seeking information in the state of Maryland. The 7-0 decision is stunning. It's way past time for us to wake up. There is a complete abandonment of reason in our courts and the chaos and injustice is mounting quickly.

Father José de Jesús Aguilar Valdés: Presents for Pope Francis, Cathedral in Mexico City

@Abramo, a good point. There was also a, "humble" chair made when the pope visited the U.S. It reminds me of people protesting Pope Emeritus Benedict's red shoes, red which, by the way, I understand is a reminder that he is willing to be martyred for the faith, and shoes that were a gift anyway.

Carhart's Personal War on Women: Third Ambulance in Seven Weeks

@Abramo, A correction: Carhart's sure to be infamous talk to Johns Hopkins University was the evening before this latest hospital transport. So he interrupted his circuit ride of death to give a pep talk to medical students. He left his Maryland clinic after delivering his dead babies for the week, gave a talk, flew to Nebraska, and started the circuit again.

Carhart's Personal War on Women: Third Ambulance in Seven Weeks

@Abramo, you said it! He gave a talk to Johns Hopkins University just days ago, actually the day after this latest incident, and proclaimed a chimpanzee could do what he is doing. These are his words of motivation to enlist others to carry on his work of destruction.

Raymond Arroyo seems to give Trump credibility.

Really, how blind can we be? Here is a great article offering fraternal correction to Santorum, Huckabee and displaying the expertise …More
