Trump Calls Out Hillary for “Hating Catholics” at Catholic Fundraiser

One of the reasons Donald Trump has the support he does is because there is a real feeling that he is acting as a representative for people who have been pushed aside and neglected by politicians on both sides of the aisle (despite Republicans paying lip service).

Last night at New York’s Al Smith dinner, a high society event hosted by New York’s archbishop Cardinal Dolan to raise money for Catholic charities, Trump did what many Christians longed to see someone do on a public stage by calling his presidential opponent out for hating Catholics. Mr. Trump was referencing the recent Wikileak revelations in which Clinton’s campaign manager mocked and sought to undermine Church teaching from within with fake ‘front’ groups. Trump said to the glitzy crowd:

“Hillary believes that it’s vital to deceive the people by having one public policy and a totally different policy in private. Here she is tonight, in public, pretending not to hate Catholics.”

Despite the jeers of the crowd, how satisfying it is to see someone actually say that with her present, unable to ignore.

Trump went on to subtly address WikiLeaks again along with praising the Catholic Church’s mission to create a culture of life before ending his speech:

We can also agree on the need to stand up to anti-Catholic bias, to defend religious liberty and to create a culture that celebrates life.

This is within 24 hours of Trump calling Hillary out for her support of late-term and partial-birth abortion too, describing the process in a way that most politicians would never consider in today’s politically correct culture:

I think it’s terrible if you go with what Hillary is saying. In the ninth month, you can take the baby and rip the baby out of the womb of the mother just prior to the birth of the baby. Now you can say that that’s OK and Hillary can say that that’s OK, but it’s not okay with me.

Can you imagine any other pro-life republicans using those terms in such a direct comment to their opponent? I can’t. The lexicon of politicians is typically one that is carefully curated through study and focus testing. Trump, over and over, seems to say the things everyday Americans are dying for someone to say to the most powerful people in our country. In the same debate he gave a no-nonsense defense of gun rights and spoke of how much he honors and appreciates the endorsement of the NRA. Even the pro-gun republicans (who are likely much more principled than Trump on the issue) seem to have weak knees when it comes to embracing the NRA. People are sick of their representatives and the media not sticking up for the people whose voices tend to be ignored if not ridiculed. This is why, despite his deep flaws, Trump is resonating.☩

Baby Brought Back to Life After Delivery

Here’s a short video that will make you feel warm inside. After years of trying to get pregnant, Kate and her husband David were blessed with the news that they were going to have boy and girl twins. Unexpectedly, she went into labor at 26 weeks and the doctors told them that their little boy, Jamie, didn’t make it following delivery. Kate grabbed her baby from the doctor and put him on her chest, skin-to-skin, with David huddling in close. They talked to him, kissed him, hugged him, and prayed for him. Then, they felt a wiggle…

A Victory for Life: Parenthood and Purpose

To the credit of ABC and Good Morning America, a story has hit the Internet about a mother who wrote a letter to a doctor–a prenatal specialist–who suggested she abort her child because they detected Down syndrome in the unborn baby (Emmy). The letter was written nearly a year after she turned down the advice of the doctor.

She’s given us a purpose and a joy that is impossible to express. She’s given us bigger smiles, more laughter and sweeter kisses than we’ve ever known. She’s opened our eyes to true beauty and pure love.

The fact that this story is going ‘viral’ online, along with it being reported via mainstream media outlets is a victory not only for Emmy, but for everyone who fights for The Culture of Life. The message from the mother also highlights the most healthy paradigm towards parenting one can have: that with parenthood comes a purpose (a sacred one) and once a parent recognizes this purpose and completely embraces it, love, joy, and graces overflow. May God bless this family.

The letter read:

A friend recently told me of when her prenatal specialist would see her child during her sonograms, he would comment, “He’s perfect.” Once her son was born with Down syndrome, she visited that same doctor. He looked at her little boy and said, “I told you. He’s perfect.”

Her story tore me apart. While I was so grateful for my friend’s experience, it filled me with such sorrow because of what I should have had. I wish you would have been that doctor.

I came to you during the most difficult time in my life. I was terrified, anxious and in complete despair. I didn’t know the truth yet about my baby, and that’s what I desperately needed from you. But instead of support and encouragement, you suggested we terminate our child. I told you her name, and you asked us again if we understood how low our quality of life would be with a child with Down syndrome. You suggested we reconsider our decision to continue the pregnancy.

From that first visit, we dreaded our appointments. The most difficult time in my life was made nearly unbearable because you never told me the truth. My child was perfect.

I’m not angry. I’m not bitter. I’m really just sad. I’m sad the tiny beating hearts you see every day don’t fill you with a perpetual awe. I’m sad the intricate details and the miracle of those sweet little fingers and toes, lungs and eyes and ears don’t always give you pause. I’m sad you were so very wrong to say a baby with Down syndrome would decrease our quality of life. And I’m heartbroken you might have said that to a mommy even today. But I’m mostly sad you’ll never have the privilege of knowing my daughter, Emersyn.

Because, you see, Emersyn has not only added to our quality of life, she’s touched the hearts of thousands. She’s given us a purpose and a joy that is impossible to express. She’s given us bigger smiles, more laughter and sweeter kisses than we’ve ever known. She’s opened our eyes to true beauty and pure love.

So my prayer is that no other mommy will have to go through what I did. My prayer is that you, too, will now see true beauty and pure love with every sonogram.

And my prayer is when you see that next baby with Down syndrome lovingly tucked in her mother’s womb, you will look at that mommy and see me then tell her the truth: “Your child is perfect.”

“I hope he sees Emmy. I hope he sees my words on paper,” Baker told ABC News. “Emmy is proof that children with special needs are worthy and can change the world. She’s doing it right now.”

Most Blessed Mother, Saint Gianna Molla, and Saint John Paul II, please intercede for the mother’s prayers!

Trump v. Chris Matthews: A Clueless Discussion on Abortion & The Church

If someone were to ask me who the two biggest buffoons on TV were, I’d likely answer Donald Trump and Chris Matthews. So it was really something special (Trump voice) to see the the two blowhards go back and forth at a town hall event in Green Bay. I have argued for months that Trump is completely unprincipled and will simply say or do anything to reach the White House (in a sense he’s more of a politician than any current politician). Sure, he might say some things that sound agreeable to political conservatives, but it’s obvious he has no clue why he actually has the position. Chris Matthews, while no doubt knowledgeable, has become a grouchy liberal blowhard, championing some of the most ridiculous left-wing sentiments on MSNBC.

There was one segment in particular that seemed to highlight the worst these two men have to offer though. Both men speak about something they have no clue on: Trump on being pro-life and Matthews on what it means to be a Catholic American. A young woman asks Donald, “I have a question on…what is your stance on woman rights, and their right to choose, and their own reproductive health”. I mean, I guess that’s a question.

Now Trump hates these questions for a number of reasons. First, he likely doesn’t believe what he’s saying. Second, he seemingly has no depth of any knowledge on the positions he touts. And third, his bread and butter is immigration and the economy, not pesky social issues. Matching the poorly thought-out question, he tries to get by with a brief clumsy answer, “I’m…as you know…I’m pro-life…uh…with exceptions…with the three exceptions. Pretty much that’s my stance. Is that okay, do you understand?” What an eloquent testament for life.

Hey, I can’t see real good, is that Pope Frank over there?

Sensing blood in the water (the water here being a college campus, MSNBC audience), Matthews pushes him by asking what exactly the law should be. But of course the only detailed answers Mr. Trump ever seems to have are his daily poll numbers and who is saying what about him on Twitter. You can see the gears moving behind his orange face as he tries to buy time.

Trump Pisses Off Everyone

Trump fumbles more when Matthews presses further asking just what being pro-life means to Mr. Trump, asking if there should be a punishment to women who get an abortion. After trying his hardest to dodge the question, Trump eventually says that there should be some sort of punishment for women. This has created a firestorm from both sides of the abortion debate. This was the ultimate “gotchya” moment for the pro-abortion, political left: “See, the Republicans want uniquely punitive measures for women!” It’s safe to say that this line will be used in campaign ads.

The pro-life movement, which has gained a ton of traction in the past decade, is upset because they recognize they have just been set back by Trump’s thoughtless comments. Most pro-lifers will say that their goal is not to punish a woman who is obviously going through a very difficult time. If the operation were to be banned, their position typically is that “doctors” who preform abortions would be subject to punishment under the law. At the same time it would be society’s responsibility to offer the support a mother needs as she goes through this difficult time.

Matthews “Respects” The Moral Authority of The Catholic Church

But then The Donald attempted to turn the tables on Chris, asking what his stance is on the subject, wondering if he knows the stance his Church has on the subject.

From there we see two frauds talking about something they don’t really know anything about. Chris says that he accepts his Church’s “moral authority” but that, unlike Spain, the Church does not run the state, implying that his being “pro-choice” in a political sense can be easily reconciled with him thinking the Church is right on abortion being morally wrong. Just like I personally am for stealing from people, but I recognize the Church’s authority to tell me it’s wrong (eye roll). Matthews further adds a memorized bit of scripture, Mark 12:17, as if it somehow backs his position up: “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.”

Be warned: hearing the two go back and forth on topics clearly neither of them understand will induce laughter, and possibly weeping.

Fearing that this video might display true microcosms of the current voter bases in this country, please excuse me as I bury my face back in my palms over what a complete disaster this presidential race has become.

Hilarious: Pro-“Choice” Groups Outraged by Doritos Commercial

One of the first commercials during the Super Bowl 50 broadcast was for Doritos. The low-brow humor was sure to catalyze the collective rolling of many eyes. Not everyone chuckled or rolled their eyes though; Pro-abortion groups like NARAL had a social media meltdown over it. Why? Because the commercial “humanized” a…human baby on an ultrasound. (My apologies for any brain cells lost after watching the video below)

The commercial shows two parents at a prenatal checkup. The husband is chowing down on Doritos (like any normal man would do in this situation) and the baby on the monitor moves in whatever direction the dad moves the chips. The frustrated wife takes a chip out of his hand and throws it on the floor. And that’s how babies are born.

Their above tweet is hilarious. NARAL is outraged that a human fetus is being “humanized”. It’s similarly hilarious there’s theorists who wonder if the Doritos’ marketing board intended on including a subtle pro-life message into their ridiculous advertisement. Oh, and just for good measure, they also called the advertisement sexist because why not.

Today’s ultrasound technology has proven to be a resilient foe to the pro-abortionists. When their movement started, the technology simply didn’t exist and the technological strides made in the past decade have been quite impressive. Now they even have 3D imaging of your unborn baby showing you exactly how “human” these little people are. In a world when bacteria on Mars would be hailed as “life found on another planet”, it’s comical that we’re supposed to believe what we’re witnessing on an ultrasound monitor is not life.

To quote the National Review article:

By showing a “fetus” as not a “clump of cells” but a tiny human being, Doritos exposed the weakness of the pro-abortion worldview: The commitment to denying the humanity of the unborn child is in conflict with basic common sense. Those who prefer to describe their side as “pro-choice” cannot tolerate any evidence that shows the human life that “choice” could be ending.
