Catholics should support President Trump, even bumper stickers

  • Normally I wouldn't say this about a Trump-like figure (divorced, non-Catholic, scandalous past with regards to sexual morality, he hasn't exactly repented, and let's not forget how pro-Israel he is.)

    But here is my argument:

    Trump is pro-life to a historic degree. That is to say, we haven't had such a pro-life president in the past 50 years. He is also appointing and surrounding himself with many staunch pro-life individuals who are actually making policy.

    Trump is quite vocal about his pro-life stance, and he has actually DONE THINGS about it. He is trying to defund Planned Parenthood, for crying out loud. That seems to be worthy of Trad Catholic support.

    We can't vote for a "lesser evil" but we CAN vote for such a concrete good.

    Not only do I think it's laudable to vote for such a man/platform, but I propose that it is  justifiable for Trads to actually promote his candidacy with bumper stickers, signs, pins, etc.

    Here is part two of my argument:

    If you propose that we Trads should NOT do everything to ensure Trump gets re-elected, please offer your counter-proposal for what Trads should do instead.

    And no, voting for some nobody third party who won't even get 1% of the vote is not a viable option, in my opinion. You might as well vote for the Democrat Socialist Communist.

    We are supposed to be realistic and prudent. If a vote for non-Trump is a vote for one of these Marxists, then we certainly need to vote for Trump.

    It's not like he's just less bad. He's actually done a lot of positive good which can be voted FOR.

  • Well said.

    Trump has withstood the worst onslaught of persecution against a POTUS that I've ever seen. He's one tough dude. I can't imagine any other Republican doing the same.

  • I think some Trads confuse being able to fully support (and promote) a candidate, with the necessary qualifications for Canonization.

    Can Catholics only fully get behind and promote candidates who have no visible faults or flaws, who might actually be canonized saints after their death?

  • Exactly! Despite his flaws, he's still FAR better than the alternative, for the reasons you've cited.

  • Anyone who makes liberals, feminists, George Soros, the Hollyweird crowd, so insane that they have to break any/all laws to try to bring him down, lie under oath, falsely accuse of rape must be, in some very substantial way, ordained by God.

    The hate they have for Trump is the same devilish hatred I see in the eyes of pro-abortionists.

    Anything or person those people hate with SUCH fury must in someway be good.  I am struggling to think of an evil person who publicly likes and endorses Trump.  Can anyone think of one?

    And who did not enjoy their liberal tears and angst when he won in 2016 against all of their lies and fakery?

  • Where we live the “Catholic” church is the communist Democrats.   Since anything goes , I might go infiltrate NO wearing Trump hat or button.  It is dangerous where we live.  They rip down our trump signs. 

    Trump is really an independent because these republicans are just as bad as Democrats. Both parties don’t care about the American people.
