The sad reality is that just as there are subversive and corrupt elements in our Nation that seek to undermine and overturn constitutional America, so too there are parallel subversive and corrupt elements in the Catholic Church that seek to undermine and overturn traditional Catholicism. The mainstream media of both Church and State are agenda driven and purveyors of fake news; America has its deep state of malcontents and Catholicism has its deep church of Modernists.
Please accept my apologies on behalf of the USCCB and the Bishop of Rome for the following:
Their failure to teach faithfully on essential religious and moral principles prior to the election of 2016 that would have made you a much more viable choice for Catholics; quite the opposite, the Bishop of Rome himself questioned your own faith when he commented, “A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they [sic] may be, and not building brides, is not Christian.”
Their continued misrepresentation of Catholic teaching regarding the God-given rights of nations and peoples to protect themselves with borders and exercise controls and limits on immigration; far from just and true, their statements and antics are an embarrassment, to include threats of “canonical penalties” against Catholics involved in implementing your policies on immigration.
Their failure to publicly acknowledge the efforts and successes of your Administration in the areas of the pro-life protection of unborn children and the protection of religious rights and Christian conscience; the most recent successes and advances in favor of life and liberty would not have been possible without your personal advocacy and appointment of a SCOTUS justice.
Their militant posture against the use of military force and Second Amendment rights. Contrary to denunciations by the Bishop of Rome of the arms business as an “industry of death” and his tweet, “Let’s ban all weapons so we don’t have to live in fear of war,” as early as Saint Augustine, Catholic teaching has explicitly supported just war principles.
On this Independence Day, President Trump, be assured of my gratitude and promise of prayers!
