Catholics

An Appeal to Our Fellow Catholics. Yes you read right, religion is now making it’s way into the 2016 Republican race. Quite amazing considering many liberals have a propensity to claim that there should be a separation of church and state. While we don’t know everyone who signed the appeal, we feel safe in saying that many are probably liberal Democrats who would be appalled if the same group of Christians appealed to the entire Christian religion not to vote for Bernie Sanders because he’s Jewish.

Think this is unprecedented in U.S. history? If you do you’re wrong. Using Mr. Sherman’s Wayback Machine we’ll travel back in time to 1960 when it was John F. Kennedy vs. Richard M. Nixon for POTUS.

Remember, JFK was a Roman Catholic and back then the Protestants didn’t trust them. In fact there had never been a Catholic President of the United States of America. Below is what a group of 150 Protestant ministers did in an attempt to cause JFK to forfeit the election.

In September, a group of 150 Protestant ministers met in Washington and declared that Kennedy could not remain independent of Church control unless he specifically repudiated its teachings. Days later Senator Kennedy received an invitation to address the Greater Houston Ministerial Association. Kennedy’s candid and eloquent performance in Houston won nearly universal praise from the press and film of his talk was used extensively by the JFK campaign. In addition, more than 500,000 copies of his remarks were distributed to clergy, especially Protestant clergy, around the nation. The religious issue never surfaced again in a way which demanded the candidate’s full attention, but continued to bubble just beneath the surface until Election Day. Vice President Richard Nixon, the Republican nominee, accused the Kennedy campaign of using the Houston film in predominantly Catholic urban areas in order to stimulate voter turnout.

Frankly we don’t think this will dissuade many Catholics or anyone else from voting for Trump if that’s who they’re voting for. Considering that the Pope has been sticking his socialist nose into U.S. politics where it doesn’t belong we wouldn’t be surprised if he put his people up to this.

The real surprise of this isn’t that it’s not unprecedented, it’s that they denigrate Trump yet ignore abortion fans Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. All things being equal we think this group should have included them along with Trump.

Politics, never a dull moment.

Pope shocked by murderous attack in Yemen that killed 4 nuns. Frankly we’re shocked he’s shocked. He’s been ignoring the mass murder of Christians in the Middle East from the beginning.

Catholic Church Paid $79 Million by Obama Administration to Force Migrant Invasion. No wonder the Pope doesn’t like the wall or Trump.

Pope Francis urges world not to fear China’s rise: AT exclusive. Sorry Catholics, but in our opinion this Pope’s a raging communist disguised in Pope’s attire.
