I’m a Catholic…have been since I was 7 years old, confirmed in the church at the age of 15. I’m also a Democrat and a liberal, and I am concerned for all our sakes that there is not a much greater wave of us, certainly Catholics, and protestant or independent believers who I think should be supporting an alternative to Donald Trump at the polls. The man is so dishonest, so self-centered, so warped by his narcissism, that I can hardly contain my incredulity that he receives such loyalty from Christians of any type. He lies daily, repeatedly! That alone, coupled with his previous infidelity to his wives (he’s been committing that sin for decades) brands him as a profligate and an idolater. He worships money, not God, and he has been fleecing the American people from the Oval Office while lying about his “perfect” phone calls and his “perfect” behaviors. Frankly, Donald Trump behaves like the Devil’s advocate, and all of us who profess our faith and commitment in a church should refuse to support his bid for a contract renewal. Frankly, I can’t quite fathom why we all have not already jumped ship on the Republican Party and waded ashore to the Land of the Free and the Christians who now see the truth of the man.
