John Zmirak: Trump’s Immigration Stand Is More Catholic than Hillary’s

One of the crucial constituencies in the upcoming election is the Catholic vote, which could be decisive. Swing states such as Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Ohio could turn on how Catholics decide to pull the lever. Recent reports have shown that a surprising percentage of church-going Catholics are leaning toward Hillary Clinton—the most pro-abortion candidate in U.S. history, a woman who has actually called for Christians to be somehow reprogrammed out of our objections to abortion, and who has backed each of the Obama administration’s attacks on religious freedom.

Quite probably, the Islamic State-inspired assassins who cut the throat of Father Jacques Hamel in St. Étienne-du-Rouvray, France, on Tuesday did not know that one effect of their act would be to cast a pall over World Youth Day, but that’s nevertheless exactly what’s happened.

Pope Francis has given America its first saint–a man who dedicated his life to bringing Christianity to the native peoples of California. Many Native Americans see Serra as a conquerer who used violence to impose a religion. They have, selectively, spoken up, but the silence on the part of mainstream left media and white liberals is deafening.

Authorities in the Philippines engaged in an extensive effort to clear Manila’s streets of homeless children, a Daily Mail report uncovered, to shield Pope Francis from witnessing the crushing poverty the capital’s homeless face.
