ENDNOTE: Can a Catholic vote for Clinton-Kaine?

2016-Aug-06

FROM A EMAIL FROM “CATHOLIC VOTE”

Dear CV Friend,

One of the most arresting lines in the Gospel is the shout of the crowd before Pontius Pilate:

“Crucify him!”

An echo of that chilling moment happened this week at the Democratic convention.

Ilyse Hogue, president of the radical pro-abortion group NARAL, told the convention: “I made the decision that was best for me: to have an abortion…”

And the Democratic delegates roared with approval.

Gone are the days when Democratic candidates spoke softly about the “A” word. Not long ago, their platform aimed to make abortion ‘safe, legal, and rare.’ Today, their radical agenda has been stripped of its euphemisms and phony slogans.

The official Democratic platform now calls for abortion on demand — paid for by taxpayers like you and me. Even so-called “devout Catholic” Tim Kaine supports this extremist plan.

But it gets worse…

Not only does the party seek to advance a disgusting anti-Catholic agenda, they also plan to force you and me to agree with them and pay for it!

Just yesterday elitist Nancy Pelosi ripped “non-college educated” voters who vote against their own economic interests because of “guns, gays, and God.” Did you get that? You and I are too stupid to vote because we believe in protecting children, building strong families, and placing our faith in God.

And Hillary has warned on abortion: “Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will… And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.”

Yes, she said that.

Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine are now officially running to be our next President and Vice President. The duo is widely celebrated as the most pro-abortion presidential ticket in United States history. Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood can hardly contain her excitement, saying “this is the strongest reproductive rights ticket we’ve ever had.”

But Clinton-Kaine are not just running to protect the abortion industry.

They are warning us now: Catholics will be forced into submission. Our hospitals, schools, charities…our rights of conscience will be given a choice: submit or go to jail.

Unless we stop them. It’s now up to us.

But time is running short.

We have videos, mailers, parish captains, voter registration drives, online digital campaigns, and much more ready to roll — but we’re still short on funds.

Can you chip in $15 to help us stop Clinton-Kaine? The next 90 days are critical. I am asking every CV member to chip in $5, $25, or even $50 right now!

Can a Catholic vote for Clinton-Kaine?

No. No way. Never.

I have to agree with their assertion. Even if one is not a good “catholic”, it’s hard to violate this fundamental principle. 

ALL lives matter.

  1. The Democratic platform calls for the end of the death penalty, as do the U.S. Catholic bishops and the Pope. If you looked at both party’s platforms and matched them with Catholic social teaching, you would come to a different conclusion than you do here.
