…can’t resign as a delegate. I think that’s great, because it shows what this candidate–and the Party that is totally responsible for creating this monster–is about.
This is what our “prolife” leadership is, more and more, “prudently” telling us we must support. Priests for Life, Susan B. Anthony List, Austin Ruse, Huckabee, Jindal and others have all–incredibly–thrown their weight behind Trump. Others are crumbling and making mealy-mouth excuses as the lure of the One Ring attacks their resolve.
I will take seriously the Prudential Judgment of the “Vote GOP or the Baby Gets It” crowd when somebody demonstrates that they have an ounce of Prudence.Happily, not everybody has bowed down to this man. I note with pleasure the emergence of a truly prolife subculture with a Consistent Life Ethic who are dedicated to the Church’s teaching: protection of human life from conception to natural death. Such organizations as Life Matters Journal and SFLA are signs of hope. But the massive problem of a “prolife” movement now nakedly exposed as prostituted to a guy who is not only obviously contemptuous of us as useful idiots, but skilled at manipulating the prolife movement into supporting a candidate who stands diametrically opposed to the teaching of the Faith on a host of things (including abortion) signals that the time has come for a new prolife movement to be born from the ashes of the old one. Of which more a bit later. But first we must defeat Trump–or we risk completely discrediting *any* prolife movement from now on.
