    Most likely voters who identify as Roman Catholic support Democratic nominee Joe Biden, despite the Democrat’s positions on abortion and religious freedom. At just over one-fifth of the population, Catholics form a pivotal voting bloc. An important new poll from EWTN and RealClearPolitics shows Trump at an immense disadvantage, but it also highlights three issues where the president can make up some ground on his opponent in this crucial voting bloc. First, the bad news: Self-identified Catholics prefer Biden (52 percent) to Trump (40 percent) nationwide. Fifty-nine percent of Catholics say they prefer Biden’s temperament to that of Trump, while...
  • Why Catholics and Jews dominate the Supreme Court

    It may have something to do with the value the two minority faiths place on higher education and the religions’ openness to intellectual inquiry, said John Fea, professor of American history at Messiah College. “Unlike evangelicals who base their entire worldview on the teachings of the Bible, Catholics and Jews seem much more open to engaging in larger principles that will affect not only their own community, but the common good of the republic or of a nation beyond the needs of their particular religious tradition," Fea said. For most of America’s history, the court was composed almost entirely of...
  • German Churches Plan to Continue Talks on Shared Communion

    10/13/2020 6:03:37 PM PDT · by marshmallow · 3 replies
    BONN, Germany (CNS) — The German Catholic bishops’ conference and the council of the Evangelical Church in Germany plan to continue their discussions about shared Communion, reported the German Catholic news agency, KNA. German Catholic and Protestant theologians and bishops had published an appraisal of the topic in May, and it was scheduled to be discussed at the German bishops’ fall plenary assembly in Fulda at the end of September. However, on Sept. 18, the Vatican Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith voiced strong objections to the appraisal, saying that differences between Catholics and Protestants in the understanding of...

    Cardinal Zen on China: ‘There is Nothing More to Do Other Than Prayer’ Cardinal Zen has criticized the lack of transparency over the Vatican’s handling of China. VATICAN CITY — Cardinal Joseph Zen Ze-kiun returned to Hong Kong from Rome Sunday, after  seeking a meeting with Pope Francis. The purpose for the trip, he told the Register, was primarily to advocate for the elevation and installation of a new bishop successor in a city facing ongoing protests and a strong-armed response from the Chinese Communist Party-backed regional government.  The 88-year old bishop emeritus of Hong Kong told the Register...

    The Joe Biden campaign is releasing three ads this month targeting Catholic and evangelical Christian voters in an effort to portray the Democrat presidential nominee and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) as “the clear moral choice” in the election. The Biden campaign is investing financial resources in an attempt to win over Americans of faith at the same time the Democrat Party has embraced the radical position of access to abortion at any time during pregnancy; an insistence it has no room for pro-life individuals or candidates; a stated intention to provide full taxpayer funding for abortion industry giant Planned Parenthood;...

    President Trump has agreed to speak remotely Thursday at the New York Archdiocese’s first ever virtual Al Smith fundraising event amid the coronavirus pandemic, church officials said Monday evening. The Archdiocese has also extended an invitation to former Vice President Joe Biden, who is Catholic, and is hopeful he will also agree to speak at the 75th annual fundraiser, the first being held remotely and not taking place at a location with speakers and hundreds of guests.

    California Democrat Sen. and 2020 VP nominee on the “Harris-Biden” ticket Kamala Harris,, fresh from her epic character assassination attempt during the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, seems to have been designated the lead in trying to derail the Supreme Court nomination of 7th Circuit Judge Amy Coney Barrett. Harris’ partner in crime on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. Maize Hirono of Hawaii, who plans to make her home visits by taxi after the Green New Deal kills airline travel, has said she will not meet with Barrett, lest her limited intellect be confused with the facts...

    he notion that Judge Amy Coney Barrett of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit will be President Trump’s third lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court has the liberal progressives in cardiac arrest. They threaten Trump with another impeachment for doing what the Constitution allows him to do – appoint Supreme Court justices and lower court judges (he has done 300 so far) up to the very last second before he leaves office, assuming he is not reelected. But it looks increasingly likely that he will be, particularly if he makes such a stellar pick. Trump has promised...

    West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin slammed religious criticisms of Judge Amy Coney Barrett, a front-runner for President Trump's nomination to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court. During an interview on Fox and Friends Wednesday, the centrist Democrat decried the attacks against Barrett's Catholic beliefs, which some outlets have linked to the dystopian novel The Handmaid's Tale that has been converted into a television series. "I have heard your colleagues in the Senate query her about her religion, which makes you wonder should a person’s religion disqualify them from a job on the Supreme Court? Because...

    A New York priest said his parish added a “pledge for racial justice” to Masses as part of its anti-racism initiatives, and that no one at the parish is required to participate in it. While video of the pledge has been the subject of criticism in the media and from some Catholics, the Archdiocese of New York has not commented on the matter. “Under the sponsorship of the Pastoral Council, we held a prayer service for the victims of racism and commissioned our Sacred Space ministry to produce a display so that there would be heightened awareness. In that context,...
  • Yes, Joe Biden Is a Catholic in Name Only. Lou Holtz was right. Biden accepts donations from Planned Parenthood to endorse abortion without restrictions from conception to birth and even after. He violates a basic tenet of Catholic doctrine and faith.

To be sure you cannot judge what’s in someone’s heart and soul and you should not judge lest ye be also judged by the same standards.

    The Democrats Zoomed an entirely predictable political kabuki last night. Catholics for Biden, they called it, where the game was not to mention the unborn child. Only one of them did, the Nun from the Bus, Sister Simone Campbell, whose grinning and mugging for the camera was supposed to come off cute but achieved mostly a kind of weirdness. Campbell said we should care for the unborn by giving their moms proper nutrition and that care for the unborn was equally sacred to care for the Earth. Recall this is the same woman who told the Democratic National Convention last...

    As a cradle Catholic and recipient of Notre Dame's Laetare Medal, Joe Biden is outspoken in declaring that the principles and beliefs of his Catholic faith guide his public life. "Joe is a man of faith," was a recurring theme at the Democratic convention that nominated him to become our second Catholic president. Biden has often affirmed the centrality of his faith to his decisions in public life. In a video released on the eve of the convention, he credited Pope Francis and the nuns who educated him with making him the man he is today. Yet, when the Supreme...

    The Catholic Thing ^ | August 9th, 2020 | Casey Chalk
    We should stop trying to evangelize Protestants, some Catholics say. “Let’s get our own house clean first, before we invite our fellow Christians in,” someone commented on a recent article of mine that presented a Catholic rejoinder to a prominent Baptist theologian. Another reader argued that, rather than trying to persuade Protestants to become Catholic, we should “help each other spread God’s love in this world that seems to be falling to pieces before our eyes.” As a convert from Protestantism, actively engaged in ecumenical dialogue, I’ve heard this kind of thinking quite frequently. And it’s dead wrong. One common...

    A Catholic political advocacy group is calling on presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden to speak out on a rash of violence and vandalism against churches across the nation. "Catholic churches across America are literally burning, and Joe Biden has said nothing. Leading members of the Democratic Party have fueled a climate of hate against Catholics, and these attacks have now led to acts of vandalism and violence," CatholicVote president Brian Burch said Thursday. "These attacks on the Church raise serious questions about the commitment of Joe Biden, a self-professed Catholic, to stand up to the rising climate of anti-Catholicism across...

    Prioritizing radical left 'rock-star' politicians over scripture and two millennia of tradition and teaching allows confusion and mischievous distortions of the truth to scatter and divide Christians. A galling op-ed in the National Catholic Reporter last week proclaimed that Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is “the future of the Catholic Church.” If executive editor Heidi Schlumpf is correct that a pro-abortion socialist who insulted one of the most courageous and compassionate modern saints is the new poster child for Catholics, God help us.Our Lord entrusted the church to St. Peter and the apostles, and its teachings have been faithfully passed down...

    Why hasn’t Ghislaine Maxwell, the alleged pimp of deceased Clinton donor/pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, showed up for an interview with the FBI yet? Just kidding! We all know the ugly answer to that question. The Clintons have spent the past four years denying their years-long close personal friendship with Epstein and Maxwell, to limited success. A new and very blatant connection to the duo has just come to light, which makes us wonder why no one has uncovered it previously. It’s almost as if the media doesn’t want to look too closely at the Clintons’ relationship with Epstein and Maxwell! Hillary...

    We Catholics and Christians must vote to push Trump over the re-election finish line and to get rid of Pelosi and the Dem majority in the House. We have the votes and the ability to do this. We must do it, or our individual consciences and individual judgement before God will suffer. Think about it. The secular politicians get to push us around by stuffing failing, union-run schools and late term abortion down our throats, but these same politically-correct people tell us that we can’t step outside of our churches to defend Christ and the Culture. I don’t think this...
