I link now to an article by Father Marcel Guarnizo that is published today on Townhall.com entitled "Donald Trump's Kamikaze Mission". He's written before regarding his opposition to Trump. I do want to remind my readers that it was Father Guarnizo who, four years ago at my parish in the Archdiocese of Washington, withheld Holy Communion to a practicing lesbian.
That said, I'm frankly taken aback at Father's characterizations of Trump: "clinical", "narcissistic", "needs a therapist", etc. I admit they are opinions shared by many, but they are merely that: opinions. I've yet to hear of any body-count associated with Trump as we hear of Hillary's (which seems to be in a state of growth these days).
He put forth the following analogy in an attempt to illustrate the choices of Hillary versus Trump that now face us. "If someone at a dinner gathering requires a ride home and the only two available drivers are both drunk, the moral determination is clearly not to try and determine who is less intoxicated, and assign that poor fellow to do the driving. All that is required is to be aware that neither can drive and therefore you must not give the responsibility to either one." The analogy is quite faulty. In the dinner case, the rider has the option of not accepting a ride from either one of them. We as a nation have no such option. Either Trump or Hillary will go to the White House. We as a nation will have one of the two drivers and no one else. We either choose which one it will be, or the choice will be made for us by those who do bother to go to the polls.
The article was released today. It could very well have been submitted to Townhall before the WikiLeaks revelations came out that told us just what Hillary and company intend for faithful Catholics. I cannot believe that Father would blithely ignore this development. At any rate, I haven't the time to rehash arguments that I've been making about this election for months now. Please go back and read those posts for memory refreshers.
