    “Over two millennia ago, a new hope was born into the world, a Savior who would offer the promise of salvation to all mankind. Just as the three wise men did on that night, this Christmas heralds a time to celebrate the good news of a new King."


    They are denying that they meant Trump by this, but it's hard to deny by saying "new King".

    Why didn't you just post the link in your OP instead of sending people on an egg hunt? Seems pretty rude to me...

    Comparing any politician to Our Lord is ridiculous. Our Lord is God - sinless and perfect. Politicians, especially Trump, are fallible mere mortals.
    The second Monday of October is Columbus Day, not Indigenous People's Day. Without Columbus discovering the Indies and giving them the True Faith, they would still be cannibals worshipping the Sun.

    I posted the quote, if you or anyone else wants more than that just look it up and keep you mouth shut. It's not my job to do all the leg work.

    Yes, MW. The point I was making in my post was this:
    Firstly if you quote you should give a reference or source.
    Second, we know that we use a pronoun to refer to the immediately preceding noun. In this case there is no immediately preceding noun. Then  yet another pronoun of which there is no immediately preceding noun. We have no idea what he is talking about because of this paucity of English expression.

    Then he arrogantly implies that I can't "google" and you should "keep you (sic) mouth shut".

    This is a classical example of the falling standards of the English language, which comes with the demise of true religion. It is especially sad to see it on CathInfo.

  • Well, Trump could very well be the Anti—Christ but I have my doubts. I always thought it would be Trudeau. But either way they both seem to be working so hard at it.... not to mention Obama!

    The President of the United States is not a king.

    Since they're openly denying the "new king" is Trump, and Priebus literally referred to Our Lord with "over two millennia ago... a Savior who would offer the promise of salvation to all mankind...the three wise men," as Catholics who pray for the Social Kingship of Jesus Christ, we ought not presume that this little quip isn't a kind of opening of the door for our prayers to be answered. Perhaps Reince Priebus is innocently prophesying the advent of what we Catholics have been storming heaven for ever since Pope Pius XI wrote his encyclical Quas Primas, 1925.

    In any event, the courage and FORTITUDE of Mr. Priebus to utter such ominous words on the record is nothing short of astounding. It ought to evoke our admiration, not our disdain!

    Just think, if the witch had won, do you think any one of her new Cabinet would have dared to say anything CLOSE to this????

    We have been granted A REPRIEVE in this presidential election, the magnitude of which is yet to be seen; but in the interim, we need only pause to consider how CLOSE we all came to the literal END of America as we know it.

    God has granted us a second chance, which is an enormous blessing.

    We ought to INCREASE our prayers for God's grace and thank Him for this miracle.

  • On election night, Trump gave a quick speech thanking his staff and assistants, and the most prominent appreciation and raw flattery went directly to Mr. Priebus.  In response, Priebus turned his attention immediately back to the man of the hour.

    So not only does he exhibit uncommon valor in his choice of words, but practices humility when praises are conspicuously heaped upon his head. These are key aspects of true virtue. It's something that politics has been utterly devoid of for far too long, and perhaps we have something new (thank God!) to get used to hearing.

    It seems to me "we ain't seen nothin' yet."

    If it isn't too much trouble, Matthew, the words "Sounds Evil" might be better removed from the thread title.

    The context of his quote implies that this Christmas time we have a new king. As in, a replacement for the old. It implies that Trump is the new savior.

    Over two millennia ago, a new hope was born into the world,= Jesus

    a Savior who would offer the promise of salvation to all mankind.= Jesus

    this Christmas heralds a time to celebrate the good news of a new King.= Not Jesus (implicitly Trump)= Evil

    I posted the quote. Is it a rule that I have to show the source? Especially if it is so easy to find?
