Dear Editor: Catholics who vote for pro abortion candidates are violating Catholic teachings (“Post-Midterms, Do We Have Two Catholic Churches in America?,’’ The Tablet, Nov. 10). Voting for a pro-abortion candidate is unacceptable and any Catholic who does it, should be excommunicated.
Unfortunately many people feel the support of a political party is more important that Catholic teachings. A Catholic cannot use their conscience as an excuse to violate Catholic teachings.
Dear Editor: I am Catholic, daily Mass attendee, try to pray the Holy Rosary at least four times a week, go to Confession regularly and try to pray before Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament at Adoration regularly.
I was grateful to hear that President Trump undid the Health and Human Services Mandate established by the Obama administration forcing organizations to violate their consciences by paying for morally objectionable services in their healthcare plans.
As a faithful Catholic, I am grateful to the Trump administration for this. We have to stop wanting to be on the right side of history (which all too often ignores God’s commands, decrees and laws) – preferring to be on God’s right side, doing His will, even at the cost of persecution and death. And I do believe we are at this point in America!
May God continue to give us the strength and fortitude to be witnesses of the truth of the Gospel!
