Catholicism, A Tool of the Left
by Sonja Harris on March 13, 2019 at 9:32 AM
Catholicism has become a tool used by Democrats who claim to be ‘Catholics’ to gain favor and eventually votes to attain their political goal. Some even use it as a weapon to bring in the ‘flock’ of voters.
The doctrine of the Catholic Church stands for the sanctity of life, that life begins at conception to natural death and that marriage is between a natural man and natural woman. The Church follows the teachings of Christ.
Julian Castro, the former mayor of San Antonio, is making a big to-do about his Catholicism, even to the point that the very liberal Express News had an article about how Catholicism “has never been far from my life.” He touts being a Catholic in order to gain votes from the very ignorant people he is wooing to the polls. Ignorance is not an uncommon trait in the barrios where he preaches his lies to the Hispanic people, these people are trusting and uninformed. To sway his voters he often poses in front of the Virgin of Guadalupe who is the patroness of the unborn, he advocates reproductive rights which is abortion. It is my belief that if they knew the truth, that Castro promotes abortion and ‘infanticide’, many of his supporters would turn away.
Robert O’Rourke who ran against Senator Ted Cruz in Texas for the senate seat is also a Catholic, so his biography states. In fact, he delivered his father’s eulogy during the funeral mass at St Patrick’s Cathedral in El Paso, Texas. As the representative from Congressional District 16, he voted against the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act in 2018 and voted to Fund Planned Parenthood Act in 2015. He belongs to the party of same-sex marriage and abortion. Recently he was interviewed by MSNBC host Chris Hayes who asked, “If you could, would you take the wall down here—knock it down?” He easily answered, “Yes, absolutely, I’d take the wall down.” As yet, O’Rourke has not announced his decision on which seat he will be campaigning for in 2020. His views totally contradict Catholic dogma and Christian values and the sovereignty of the USA not to mention Texas his home state.
It’s not unheard of that Catholicism has been used in the past. Barack Obama campaigned with Joe Biden as his vice president in 2008, which no doubt played a role in winning Pennsylvania’s Catholic vote which was around 25% of the population. By using Biden’s religion to attract the blue collar workers in Pennsylvania, Obama crushed John McCain’s hope in becoming president.
Biden has not yet announced as of this writing if he plans to run for the presidency, but his name is being mentioned as a front runner if he does run. An article dated September 24, 2015, written by Michael Chapman for CNSNEWS states that Biden as a pro-abortion politician is not invited to speak at any Catholic functions or schools. Earlier articles state that the former Bishop Michael Saltarelli head of the Catholic diocese of Wilmington, Delaware denied Biden Holy Communion.
Nancy Pelosi wields her moral authority and uses her Catholicism as a weapon. She mocks the Catholic Church by appearing in public with ashes on her forehead. She has absolutely no right to her righteousness. She is an immoral person, advocating for abortion and infanticide and of course same-sex marriage. The harm and damage she has done to the moral fiber of the USA can only be mended by ‘fire’. Of course, I can’t know what is in her heart, I can only judge her actions.
Unfortunately there are a horde of so called Catholics in elected offices doing profound damage to our Christian values. Governor Andrew Cuomo signed New York’s Reproductive Health Act, a horrendous and an evil transgression to our moral fiber in the USA.
The youngest member of the US House, at 29 years of age, is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez representing the Bronx and Queens and according to her biograph is a Catholic. At her age, there is plenty of time for her to try and destroy the American way of life. She has already voted against life by not supporting the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection act in 2019. Her unrealistic view of equality is very disturbing to most decent Americans. She is a Socialist in every possible way and is leading the way for anti-Semitism by supporting Ilhan Omar in her hate of the Jews. These two are working in unison to destroy our Judeo-Christian heritage not to mention our allies, the Jewish community and Israel.
Since Socialism is a dangerous concept for anyone to even contemplate, especially those living in the freest country in the world. No matter what some Catholics believe, Socialism is rejected by the Catholic Church because of its totalitarian and atheistic ideologies which are associated with ‘communism’ or ‘socialism’. Pope Pius XI described it best, “No one can be at the same time a good Catholic and a true socialist.” So in essence all those advocating socialism are supporting anti-Christian values.
All current Democrat presidential candidates for 2020 are supporting and advocating Socialism a very disturbing trend. Promises of Medicare for all, free education and the drilling of inequality to the masses and the promise of equality may sound like a good deal but in reality is an empty dream that will only disappoint and terminate our way of life. Socialists would like the government to be the moral authority and not God our Creator. You should be warned that those immersing themselves in Catholicism and not following Catholic dogma are drawing us closer to Socialism.
Canon Law 915 states the reasons why Holy Communion should be denied. It plainly articulates the responsibility of the minister of Holy Communion, ordinary or extraordinary, to deny Holy Communion to those who obstinately persevere in manifest grave sin.
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops in their 'Catholic in Political Life' document includes this statement:
The question has been raised as to whether the denial of Holy Communion to some Catholics in political life is necessary because of their public support for abortion on demand. Given the wide range of circumstances involved in arriving at a prudential judgment on a matter of this seriousness, we recognize that such decisions rest with the individual bishop in accord with the established canonical and pastoral principles. Bishops can legitimately make different judgments on the most prudent course of pastoral action.
The polarizing tendencies of election-year politics can lead to circumstances in which Catholic teaching and sacramental practice can be misused for political ends.
Catholics in office and running for office should not be campaigning on Reproductive Rights which means abortion or ‘infanticide’ or equality for all which is Socialism. If you are a Catholic it is your responsibility to inform those that might not know the truth. If approached in a civil discussion, it could be that you lead a Democrat AKA Socialist in the right path.
Also for those that are tired of listening to Julian Castro tell how Catholic he is, maybe it’s time his Archbishop, Gustavo Garcia-Siller, be informed on his stance on abortion, infanticide and Socialism. While we cannot fault the Church for what these politicians say and do because obviously the Church does not have ‘control’ over their free will, but the Church, their archbishops, can send them a letter advising them of the teachings of the Catholic Church and deny the politician from receiving communion. You can address a letter to him at 2718 W Woodlawn Ave, San Antonio TX 78228 or FAX the Archbishop at 210 734 0708
Fight, NEVER GIVE UP!
