On My Faith and this Election

Posted on Updated on

Goldie Taylor’s latest article for the Daily BeastDonald Trump Is Exposed, And So Are the Republicans Who Are Sticking With Him, demonstrates the hypocrisy inherent in the extreme right-wing of the GOP,  and their “do as I say, not as I do” holier than thou cavalier attitude towards their Christianity.

“But no principled, Christian conservative can justify backing a thrice married, serial philander who essentially confessed to sex crimes. However, this race was never about principle. It was never about Republican themes like small government, personal responsibility or family values. From the start, Trump’s campaign has been predicated on sexism (and ethno-nationalistic racism). It is and always has been about white male resentment and anguish. Trump bottled that antipathy—for women and minorities— and put it on a chartered flight to Iowa.”

There IS a choice for voters of Faith who believe that we ARE our brothers’ and sisters’ keepers. A candidate who has raised an intelligent, poised, confident, loving daughter; who remained faithfully married to an adulterous husband for 40 years; who has championed the rights and protection of children her entire life; and who has been an outspoken advocate for women, People of Color, LGBTQIAP people, military personnel, Veterans and their families; and people of all Faiths and beliefs.

HER name is Hillary Clinton and we KNOW what her credentials are.

You can vote for the GOP nominee, who is the very personification of the “ugly American” – undisciplined, greed-driven, arrogant, ill-prepared, unhinged, deranged, impetuous, irritable, pathologically unfit, and fundamentally dangerous.catholics_for_hillary_drink_coaster-rc1854bb3dafc4de1aea5b1f2801fb4f1_29m68_8byvr_324

Or you can vote for Hillary Clinton. Third-party candidates are simply not an option.

We know Mrs. Clinton’s record. We know that ALL of her Democratic primary opponents have not only supported her candidacy for President of the United States, but are campaigning on her behalf.  That says more about her character and their respect for her, than the slickest political advertising.

So, my fellow voters of Faith, it is time to search your hearts and spend time meditating on the teachings of Jesus.  Then, take a close, long look at His actions, the people he surrounded Himself with and those He ministered to.

Then, ask yourselves which candidate more closely embodies those ideals. She needs our votes in November. She has EARNED our votes.

Thank God, and may our Blessed Mother guide and keep Hillary Clinton safe from now, through Election Day and her Inauguration.  Use your voice and vote for Hillary Clinton to be President of the United States. She is the RIGHT choice. She is the ONLY choice.

As a Roman Catholic Latina, #ImWithHer and you should be too, because we Americans are #StrongerTogether.
