As a lifelong Catholic who went to Catholic schools through 9th grade, and who sent our son to Catholic schools through 12th grade, I had to stop contributing to our leftist Catholic parish in 2008. I saw a Catholic Church allowing Catholics to vote for a Democrat who said letting a botched abortion baby die on a cold steel table was ok, because he favored “social justice” such as amnesty for illegal aliens. A few strong Catholic priests and bishops spoke out, but every parish priest should have put out Pope Benedict’s message that you can’t support abortion or any politician that openly supports the murder of fetuses. And yes, reportedly a majority of Catholics somehow voted as Jesuits: anything your conscience can justify is morally valid (in the vernacular: “to hell with what the pope instructs!”)
I made the decision that I could no longer give money to a church which would grossly misuse my small offering; my money would be much better used donating to conservative causes that will help rid this country of a most immoral and enormously corrupt administration.
