Can you be a Christian/Catholic in good standing and be a Democrat? If you are serious person of faith, that should be a no-brainer of a question. Start from the Ten Commandments and go from there: Thou Shalt Not Kill. There is no footnote stating, “Except in cases of necessary abortions or that you don’t want your baby or the baby would be an inconvenience . . .”
Now that the evil powers that be have made an inroad in legitimizing the brutal murder of babies even once they exit the womb ‘in error’, who is next on the disposal agenda or the unwanted? In one country, they pride themselves on not having Downs babies . . .they are aborted once this is detected in the womb. In other countries, the elderly and people with mental disorders are sanctioned to be ‘put out of their misery’ based on everyone’s decision but their own.
Two elections in a row, however, the Catholics/Christians easily voted in a president who sanctioned abortion and supported it with our taxpayer funds. He even said that he ‘wouldn’t want his daughter burdened with an unwanted baby’.
We have family that no longer speaks to us because we are Conservative Republicans yet they consider themselves to be Catholic. Thankfully, they just went silent whereas people in our parish actually denounced our voting choices and no longer speak with us. One woman even indicated that the economy should come first in determining our vote.
It makes me day dream about having pastors (the ones that didn’t vote Democratic!) stand at the pulpit, some day, and directly ask the congregation: Can YOU be a good Christian/Catholic and vote Democrat? And, if you think so, can you explain?
Can’t see it happening to any degree and any time soon as the fact that abortion/infanticide is gradually becoming the law of the land and not a word from the pulpit or a mention in the prayer petitions has been made.
