Never-trumpers are being willfully ignorant of Trump's prolife stance

That does it!

I love these arguments. I hear them often from dear family members.

e.g. Trump is believed to be a  letcher, therefore we are morally obligated to just allow a real letcher, Bill Clinton, back in the White House. (?!!)

or, Trump cannot be trusted, therefore we would be better off trusting Hillary. (?!!)

For some, I am afraid there is snobbishness involved. These anti-Trumpers are seeing their  Republican club inundated with the 'deplorables' i.e. uneducated and/or unemployed people who have never heard of Milton Friedman, or von Mises, people who don't give a damn about America leading the globalist agenda nor our perennial need to antagonize Russia nor our duty to give 3rd world women the opportunity to work in sweatshops to  keep Walmart well-stocked, etc. etc. The snobs don't like locking arms with the pitchfork people, hence they are either sitting on their hands or just voting for Hillary and Bill.

Wednesday night's debate contained a stark exchange over abortion where Trump railed against late-term abortion and stated that Roe v Wade had to be overturned.  This was an exchange over which pro-life never-Trumpers are going to have to show their true colors.  please recall that Trump was attacked prior to the Wisconsin primary both by Planned Parenthood AND BY  REPUBLICANS for his pro-life stance.  Also, remember that  both Bush first ladies, Barbara and Laura( laura for gay marriage AND abortion )were and are pro-choice as was Nancy Reagan.(and also Mrs. John McCain is prochoice ) After seeing how the Bushes cozy up to Hillary for this election, should we really be surprised that the net result of 20 years of Reagan-Bush was:  Roe v Wade unscathed?

I'm beginning to think that never-Trumpers are less worried that Trump will break his pro-life pledge, and are more worried of how embarrassed they would be if Trump became the first Republican president ever to honor his pro-life pledge!

Either, being pro-life is just window-dressing for the Republican Party...where officials-- once elected--with a wink and a nod-- uphold the abortion status quo, or it is more. Watching so-called pro-lifers stab Mr. Trump in the back makes me wonder if I have been a chump for ever thinking the Bushes and the Reagans and the McCains and the Romneys and  the Becks and the Medveds and the Krauthammers and  the Kasichs and the Kristols and the Shapiros and the Wills ever gave the abortion issue very much importance.

Diamond and Silk fetch smelling salts for Bill Clinton's supporters offended byTrump's braggadocio

I am beginning to think that the Clinton campaign has stumbled into a trap.

Diamond and Silk powerfully point out the irony of those who want to put a rapist back into the white house and yet are offended by a surreptitious recording of Donald Trump bragging to a cohort about his sexploits--real or imagined-- .

Suddenly, we are told by those who say Trump exaggerates and lies about his wealth, that we must take his locker room bragging at face value. Men never lie to their buddies about sexploits! that's a fact.

 I really wonder if those genuinely offended at hearing such language have ever been around enlisted MEN in our nations military, or even around a construction site when men know the womenfolk aren't listening. It is a plain fact that the elite have no such experience.  Thankfully, many of the DeplorABLE have.

(as/I write, the NYT is printing an article about how Planned Parenthood is campaigning against Donald Trump with more money than ever before.)

Why is Planned Parenthood only attacking Trump and not his opponents?

Actually this post is about a little more than Planned is a response to Father Guarnizo's post here trump is unstable narcissist
I just could not log in over there because I am boycotting facebook :-)

Your Excellency (and Father G),

Sadly, I must disagree with your post for the following reasons (among others)

1. Regarding Trump being egotistical:  Being mentally bent towards narcissism is not unusual in presidents, nor in presidential candidates. Any 'humility' I see in any of these people reminds me too much of the Holy Father's much heralded humility displays.  Please!.....isn't it better to just be honest about one's raw ambition?

2. Trumps bluster is his negotiating style.  I think he sees himself as able to deliver  about 10% of what he promises.  So he promises 'the world' as his opening position.  Everyone knows he is exaggerating. This is a tactic which allows adversaries to save face when they return home and say, 'if it weren't for me, that crazy man would have gotten the whole world!"

3. Trump is the only presidential candidate  who is dead serious about defending persecuted Christians--even if Israel doesn't like it-- because it favors ISIS (why State of Israel prefers ISIS ).  Trump doesn't root for Turkey when it targeted Russian planes bombing al-Qaeda and ISIS-unlike his Republican opponents, nor does
Trump root for vile punk rock groups who desecrate Russian Churches (as did Cruz in paragraph 5 of this article Ted defends Pussy Riot).  Only Donald Trump has praised Putin for his willingness take action in Syria--and both of you should know that every single Christian in Syria supports Putin's actions against ISIS there.(Russian planes boot ISIS out of Palmyra)  Lastly I don't think Trump would ever get huffy and stomp out of a meeting with persecuted Middle Eastern Christians proclaiming 'I will not stand with you!"  as Cruz did here (I will not stand with you).

4.  Regarding Trump's position on abortion:......Even as I write this, Planned Parenthood is running an ad against Trump
(Planned Parenthood singles out Trump).  Why, Father and your Excellency, isn't Planned Parenthood running an ad against Trump's opponents?  Aren't a person's enemies a good measure of his identity? On the other hand, Ted Cruz is echoing Planned Parenthood's attack,  piling on Trump's comment about punishing women who get abortions....and regarding that! really, forgive me, but I don't see what is so obviously wrong with some sort of punishment, e.g.mandatory community service--for aborting mothers.  They could 'volunteer' in a maternity ward or in a home for severely handicapped infants,    Is it not pure hot-air to say we support passing a law that will have NO penalties, NO penance for about 100% of the law's violators?  Is that what we pro-lifers have been fighting for these past 50 years? a land where it is NOT OK to perform an abortion, but IT IS OK TO HAVE AN ABORTION? Would such a toothless law save one baby's life?  Newcomer Trump is not the only one to misunderstand the Right-to-Life position.  Include me!

I certainly hope I have not overstepped.  I hold you in highest regard.

your loyal sheep,

Archbishop Broglio of the Military Archdiocese is indignant that a kneeling communicant was denied Holy Communion

I was recently informed about a member of the Armed Services being denied Holy Communion in a military parish because they kneeled for Holy Communion.

Archbishop Broglio, the Archbishop for the Military Services responds.......

I deeply regret this lack of respect to you and your legitimate rights.
You may tell the priest in question that I will not tolerate this disregard for the options of the faithful.
I will also see how I can remind the Army priests in [deleted] about the GIRM.  Unfortunately, not everyone reads carefully everything that is published and promulgated.
May the Lord bless you and give you strength.
Sincerely in Christ,
+Timothy Broglio
