You are correct Truth. And from what I’ve read, seen and heard, this election is definitely bringing out the worst in America’s people. God help us.

Enigma, your comments about the Catholic Church are untrue and out of line.

As a vehemently anti-Trump person, it took some time for me to come to this conclusion. Ted Cruz set the stage for me to say, if he can forgive him for the terrible things he said, then I need to open my mind to the possibility of a Trump presidency since we have no other viable candidate who can run against her (a political no-win situation). After my own thoughts and prayer, it came to me that Trump should be elected BUT only if Congress is willing to keep a very watchful eye on him and if he pulls anything illegal (unlike the past presidents who have gotten a pass on everything illegal that they have done; living under the arrogant assumption that no one will touch them because of who they are), they should impeach him immediately and put Mike Pence in charge. Trump is not well liked with many people, senators, etc. so unlike other ‘popular’ politicians, it would not take much to impeach him if need be. Now with this thought process, I just MAY be able to color in the Trump bubble for him on election day with a semi-clear conscience.
very thoughtful and well said, but i jumped on the trump bandwagon only because he is a business man, not dumb stupid politician!
"BUT only if Congress is willing to keep a very watchful eye on him "
The parties have a consistent record of NOT keeping a watchful eye on their own, so there's always that.
I'm not anti-Trump like you, but Trump was not my FIRST choice (I voted for Ted Cruz in the primaries)
and I too was inspired by Ted's bravery in endorsing/forgiving Trump (and the way he did what was best for America even though he know he'd be personally attacked for doing so was heroic).
As for congress stopping Trump if he gets out of hand... Normally I'd never trust Congress to do the right thing on anything, but heres the silver lining... Congress is almost half democrat (who hate Trump and would love to havre ANY excuse to impeach him, and even on his good policies will obstruct). Of the other half who are Republican, more than half of those are weaselly establishment Republicans, meaning that they hate Trump as much as ANY democrat. They will be just as opposed to Trump as the democrats (and opposed to even his great policies like immigration). The establishment Republicans want him impeached more than the Democrats. So for once, we'll actually have a Congress that will limit presidential power all that they can.
Its sadly ironic that the very same Republicans who refused to do anything to stop Obama's imperial presidency, and refused to even consider impeaching obama for his many criminal acts (and who also refused to repeal Obamacare), will actually be driven by Trump-hate to joins forced with the democrat party in being extremely vigilant in opposition even the tiniest breeches by Trump.

She is diabolically insane. She is joyful when she hears about women who have killed their children, including herself and compares this ‘victory’ to the LGBT crowd’s ‘victory’??? At any other time in history (before diabolical lunacy began running the show) this woman would be declared insane and a threat to humanity. And by the way, if a woman is willing to tell the world that she killed her unborn child, why not go to a priest first and confess with remorse about what she did (through a priest who is specially trained to minister to women who are post-abortive in the Project Rachel ministry, or they could just go to the confessional) so that she can get rid of the mortal sin of infant slaughter from her guilt and save herself by the power of God’s mercy from the eternal fires of Hell.
This is a prejudiced viewpoint on your part about a GED. Many extremely bright individuals get GEDs or just plain quit school entirely because they are bored to death with the pablum which schools dish out. I am one of these. Not only did my GCT/ARI (Navy Entrance Exam) qualify me for Mensa, it qualified me for Intertel - the top 1% of the population. The Navy asked me to go into their nuclear program.
Some States, in their efforts to curtail the blossoming home school movement, will not allow a home schooled teenager a high school diploma.
Then their only avenue is a GED and decent scores on SAT/College Boards to get accepted at State colleges (which love them by the way). Colleges know that a home schooled kid is more likely to graduate, which is a metric those colleges are scored on.
After 1 semester of passing grades, even the Coast Guard has to accept them. But once in college, why would the Coast Guard even come to mind?
Because Sparky, some of us are true patriots that know service to our nation is not done because we're "not college material". Just because someone goes to school means they shouldn't think about serving? Please explain Officers then.
Veritas, some of us probably did more service time than you.
If the Coast Guard won't accept someone that took the time to go to classes and PASS the GED academic tests (considered to be a high school equivalency credential), then they can go rot.
Dragon, thanks for your service. Subs or surface?

Who cares about his team of doctors? Glenn isn’t running for president.

Oh contraire. Fox is/was 100 percent in the tank for Trump.

With all due respect you are wrong Axer. The Church has not changed Her dogmatic teachings in spite of what the heretical Modernists in the Catholic Church will have you believe. We do NOT have a ‘reasonable hope that all men are saved as Archbishop Barron of CA et al want you to think, and there is no dogmatic teaching that supports his claim. It is very true that just one mortal sin wipes out the spiritual benefits of ‘doing good’. Although be warned, many Modernists will have you erroneously believe that all you have to do is do some good deed, like donate to some charity and you are saved. Do not buy it.

Reorganizing the Church under Pope Francis has been ‘brilliant’?? Getting rid of orthodox bishops and cardinals like Cardinal Burke et al, and replacing them with marxists and homosexually friendly bishops like Cardinal Marx et al is brilliant? I’d like to hear what you call stupid and apostacy then.
[-3] September 2, 2016 at 10:07am
Axer, as a former Catholic I assume you do realize that all of your ‘good works’ are of NO spiritual value when you are in a state of mortal sin, right? Leaving the Catholic Church and missing Sunday Mass without a legitimate reason puts you in the state of mortal sin and cut off from the life of grace. I say rather than leave the Church which is being heavily persecuted ftom within, cling to the Church’s Traditions and dogmatic teachings and ignore what the apostates and heretics around you are doing. Demons may have snatched some really big fish in the Catholic Church but don’t let them snatch you. God bless

Well said honesty! Sad, but very true. The Jesuits have been hijacked by liberalism and need a totsl makeover in authentic Catholicism.
 August 24, 2016 at 10:01am
As a Catholic, I have to say you summed up the sad reality of the Catholic Church under the current leadership perfectly. And God is NOT pleased. These leaders (cardinals, bishops, pope) and the lukewarm flock who follow them have MUCH to answer for. With that said, there is nowhere else to turn and that is why faithful Catholics should not follow these faux Catholics; but rather educate themselves in the Traditions and dogmatic teachings of the Catholic Church, correct error when you see it and find parishes that are faithful to authentic Catholicism.
August 24, 2016 at 9:55am
This is the sad truth which so many of us Catholics have been lamenting for years. Cardinal O’Malley of Boston fawns over them and gives much of the annual Cardinal’s Appeal money to them. However, statisics show that Hispanics do not stay in the Church and those that do, do not financially support the Church. The Church leaders in America, with the exception of Cardinal Burke, and a few others are failing the Church big time.

Seriously? Trump is the reason he is behind Hillary and if you ask me, that is just where he wants to be. The way he acts tells me that he really doesn’t want the job and never did. He just wanted to boost his company’s exposure and had no intentions on winning “this thing” as he called it. Please don’t blame Beck for Trump’s incompetence. You could blame the stupidity of the American electorate who put him there, knowing that he would not have a snow ball’s chance in hell of winning “this thing”.

No one says that you have to respect religious beliefs, and we don’t have to respect godless secular beliefs. You realize of course, that the Catholic Church created science, right? There are also confirmed miracles (which are verified by secular doctors and organizations) of femers, hip bones, etc. that have grown back after people visited holy sites like Fatima and Lourdes. You can google those sites for more information which might help you digest some of the ‘bs’ of confirmed miracles.

1917, Our Lady of Fatima warned that Satan’s final battle would be against marriage and the family, so it should come as no surprise to any of us that these things must come to pass. Our job is to heed her message and fight for God’s truth about marriage and the family with Christ at the helm. Christ came into the world through a married man and woman and even attended the Wedding at Cana as a guest, where he performed His first public miracle. Christ, true God, true man came as a living example for us to follow; do we really need any more proof?
@twoandahalfgoldens -- Permitting gay couples to marry in no way attacks the family, and as opposed to attacking marriage, it STRENGTHENS this institution, just as it STRENGTHENED marriage to abolish the obscene legal doctrine of coverture, to permit mixed-race couples to marry, and to permit even prisoners to marry. Including more couples under its umbrella strengthens this institution, by definition.
Incest presents a very different case. Children born of incestuous relationships are frequently genetically and developmentally disabled. Most cases of incest involve fathers forcing themselves on their daughters, or of other powerful men forcing themselves on less powerful women, or even on young girls under their custody.
The fact that such couples may avail themselves of contraception and / or abortion to prevent bringing such damaged children into the world is irrelevant -- the fact remains that such couples could choose to forsake contraception or refuse to have abortions.
Individuals in such relationships are usually profoundly damaged psychologically, leading to the very real issue of whether they are legally competent to give true consent (for example, a 14 year old girl in an incestuous "relationship" with her father lacks the ability to grant true consent). Elsewhere, I have explained that statutes cannot be drafted with mathematical precision, to permit some incestuous relationships but not others.
