Bigotry: Be the Cure

    It would seem you have bought into the narrative of the largely pro-Clinton mainstream media. I have no doubt that many hateful things were done and said by those on the Trump side – quite apart from the offensive words attributed to the man himself. However, let’s be honest – the alternative, for all practical purposes, was an astonishingly corrupt, cynical career politician, notorious for her rabidly and uncompromisingly pro-abortion stand. What would you have Catholics do? Many voted “against” Hillary, rather than “for” Trump – even if only in hopes that Trump’s Supreme Court appointments would be less hostile to Christians, and more favourable to cause of life than Hillary’s would be. On top of that, the hostility of many in the Democratic camp to the Faith and to believers in general is well known.

    Regardless of who is in charge, there will always be bigotry and hate among the populace. I would suggest that we not concern ourselves with the consciences of others, but take a good look at our own political climate – especially where Catholics are voting for pro-abort candidates without giving it a second thought (because we have little choice) and doing nothing to reverse our abortion rulings. First let us take the plank out of our own eye so that we can see clearly to take the splint from the Trump supporters’.

    Ironically this piece does exactly what it speaks against: “Pope Francis has called the polarisation of people — the “us versus them” worldview — a “contagious virus”. ”

    May we be freed from our glaring double standards.
