Trump Is Driving Catholic Voters Toward Clinton

July 28, 2016 World News Comments Off

Donald Trump has held onto the support of evangelical Christians even as he has screwed up the name of a book of the Bible, said he doesn’t feel he needs forgiveness for anything, and struggled to answer the question that Jesus posed to Peter: “Who do you say that I am?” But, according to a recent report by Pew, Trump’s doing terribly with Catholic voters, particularly those who are regular churchgoers.

Catholic Tim Kaine Now Supports Taxpayer-Funded Abortion

July 28, 2016 World News Comments Off

Well, of course, the media thinks that Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA), Hillary Clinton’s choice for vice president, is the most Catholic of Catholics. The Washington Post gushed over him, calling the senator the “Pope Francis Catholic” due to Kaine’s work to help the poor. Newsbusters’ Tim Graham aptly noted that Kaine has a 100 percent rating from the National Association for the Repeal of Abortion Laws (NARAL) and the progressive Human Rights Campaign. So, when The Post, or the larger news media, says politician X is a die-hard Catholic, “it probably means you’re a liberal opposed to Catholic orthodoxy.” Well, that NARAL rating looks like it will be maintained at a perfect A-plus score since Kaine has decided to

Cardinal Burke: Islam is ‘fundamentally a form of government’

July 22, 2016 World News Comments Off

Cardinal Raymond Burke said in a telephone interview that Islam is “fundamentally a form of government.” Speaking with Religion News Service, the patron of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta said that “when they (Muslims) become the majority in any country they have the duty to submit the whole population to sharia.” He continued: When they become a majority in any country then they have the religious obligation to govern that country. If that’s what the citizens of a nation want, well, then, they should just allow this to go on. But if that’s not what they want, then they have to find a way to deal with it … And if you do understand that and you are not…Continue Reading

July 14, 2016 World News Comments Off

A new Pew poll on religion and the 2016 campaign revealed devastating news for Republicans as Catholic voters have shifted their support to Hillary Clinton. A new Pew poll on religion and the 2016 campaign revealed devastating news for Republicans as Catholic voters have shifted their support to Hillary Clinton.

St. Anne Catholic Church prepares for 136th annual novena

July 14, 2016 World News Comments Off

There used to be a steady flow of stories, tales of miracle cures. They were covered in the Daily Journal, the Chicago Tribune and other newspapers, in the early 1900s. The Catholic church in St. Anne, a village of 1,239, was known then for its display of crutches, even a wheelchair — items left behind when visitors, willing to make this annual nine-day pilgrimage, found the strength to walk again. It was once estimated more than 4,000 believers would huddle under the tents on the church grounds on the novena’s final day, the Feast of St. Anne. They would take part in a solemn procession, reciting the rosary and carrying a statue of St. Anne through town. They would be…Continue Reading
