So says Carl Anderson, Supreme Knight of the Knights of Columbus. That’s interesting. There’s been quite a bit of talking this year about which presidential candidate to vote for, given the choices at hand. We have Donald Trump, who seems to be a walking collection of every negative stereotype ever aimed at conservatives. The problems with his views, when they can be figured out at all, are beyond count. I don’t have time to list them all. That Republicans nominated him, however reluctantly, says volumes about the problems in the Grand Old Party.
On the other hand you have Hillary Clinton. In the end, not much better. As my boys said, you know the electoral process jumped the shark when Hillary Clinton is only the second worst candidate for president. She, like most key figures at the DNC, firmly supports the redefining of liberties based on a progressive template as well as being a proud advocate for abortion rights.
True, there are issues other than abortion to consider. There is the the economy, concern for the poor, immigration, crime, violence, and the idea of who would be the best leader. We can’t get sucked into the political wrangling and punditry when considering these issues. Remember, every candidate and every party wants to rape and pillage and murder and set up fascist Communist police states. At least according to the opposing parties. We can’t lean on mudslinging when convenient just to buttress support for something that flies in the face of the most basic, fundamental human life issue.
How this plays out will remain to be seen. But according to Mr. Anderson, it can’t be by throwing our hat in the ring with politicians proud of their support for abortion rights. It doesn’t mean you have to vote for someone else, but you can’t support the pro-abortion candidate no matter what. There is something to be said about trying to find a broader pro-life coalition that looks at other issues in addition to abortion. But abortion cannot be thrown under the bus to do so.
