For over a decade now there has been an ever-burgeoning body of discussions and publications making the point that, for a Catholic with a well-formed conscience, it is a mortal sin to vote for any Democrat. “Well-formed conscience” means a conscience well-formed as defined by Holy Mother Church.
Each period before the presidential elections of 2008, 2012 and 2016, the list of intrinsic evils promoted by the Democrats grew. Their efforts to promote them increased in intensity and vehemence. They are now striving to have all taxpayers pay for their making these evils a dark reality across America. Again and again, they propose something more diabolical, more demonic. Again and again, it seems that, even for them, no further more wicked evil is possible.
Not so. There have been developments and events, since 2016, that makes it now more crystal clear than ever: It is a mortal sin for a Catholic with a well-formed conscience to vote for any Democrat! Please, please, note well: This in no way says or implies that anyone should vote for any candidate of any other party.
There are intrinsic evils, actions that are always morally wrong, no matter what the circumstances, no matter what the intent of the person acting. The Catechism of the Catholic Church states:
There are acts which, in and of themselves, independently of circumstances and intentions, are always gravely illicit by reason of their object; such as blasphemy and perjury, murder and adultery. ( CCC 1756) . . . There are concrete acts that it is always wrong to choose because their choice entails a disorder of the will, i.e., a moral evil (CCC 1761).
To counter Democrat adherence to the party’s plethora of intrinsic evils, there are no “proportionate reasons” about some other candidate or some other party that could be asserted so that a Catholic could, in good conscience, vote for a Democrat. One cannot hide behind “Stalin is a racist, so I can in good conscience vote for Hitler.” One cannot say, e.g., that “Candidate A of Party B promotes the torture of puppies and kittens, therefore, I can in good conscience vote for a Democrat.”
There are no “proportionate reasons” regarding some other candidate’s promotion of an intrinsic evil that can outweigh the impact of all the multiple intrinsic evils combined. According to Catholic Church teaching, there can be no valid reason to justify voting for a Democrat because the party platform endorses objectively evil positions.
What was New Only a Year Ago
Since they promoted the dehumanization of slaves in 19th century America, has the growth of Democrat evil ever slowed? No. It has been a steady progression, an ever-flowing onslaught, from subhuman slaves, to eugenics and the party’s RETA policies (racial eugenic targeted abortions), to abortion, to euthanasia, and assisted suicide, cloning, embryonic cell research – all of resulting in the deaths of human beings. Because of the Democrats, more and more, we see dead people.
Prior To 2019
From 2016 to 2019, the Democrat river of evil continued to flow. Back in 2018, there were two new aspects to Democrat evil:
Two more recent developments have exposed the Democrat party for what it really is, and has been. First, proceeding initially under the guise of seeking only “toleration,” they sought to accord the legal status of “married” to those who voluntarily engage in homosexual actions. Secondly, Democrats who in the past supported, advocated for and demanded taxpayer support of all abortions, now openly celebrate abortion” (Guy McClung, Vote Democrat, Mortal Sin, The American Catholic, July 16, 2018).
New Evil(s) in 2019?
Satan never sleeps. Just when you think the Democrat juggernaut of evil can go no further, WHAM! BAM! Their evil, hydra-like organization sprouts new wicked heads and grows longer tentacles.
Infanticide. Baby murder. Even for the Democrats, this is difficult to believe. Legalized infanticide will undoubtedly be an integral part of the Party’s 2020 Platform. Of the realistic contenders for the Democrat nomination for president in 2020, the overwhelming majority support the killing of babies who are born alive after an attempted abortion.
Democrat death dealers now see the political efforts to protect babies who live and survive an attempted abortion as a restriction on an absolute right. The only “American right” considered legally sacred. It has of late not been possible to get the Democrats to vote, on the record, in the House of Representatives to proceed to a vote on proposed anti-infanticide legislation. Over 70 times now the Democrats have prevented such a vote. All the Democrat senators running for president — Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand and Bernie Sanders — have voted to block an anti-infanticide bill in the U.S. Senate.
Finally, It’s Over? The Limit of Evil?
This is, of course, not the end. Evil will not say “Now that we are killing babies born alive, new U.S. citizens, across America, that is enough. Now we will stop. Our evil will go no further. We Democrats have now satiated our blood lust. We have achieved sufficient political clout to satisfy our will to dark power.” How Deep Into The Pit Of Hell Can They Go? Dream on if you think it will end when they enshrine infanticide into law. What new evils for 2020 and beyond? If they succeed in creating a right to infanticide, the following evils will logically proceed:
- The selling of a live baby who has survived an abortion
- Harvesting of organs and body parts from the child while still alive before it is “terminated” successfully
- In vivo vivisection for “educational” purposes of a living child
- Buying a still-living abortion victim and using the child in an evil ritual with live child sacrifice
The Insanity Continues
Another evil now being pursued is to have the age of consent for minors reduced even further. Now, why would they want that?
Nuts? Off the wall? Crazy? That would be a reasonable person’s reply in the 1960s if they learned mass abortion would be allowed in the United States. Tell someone 50 years ago that this would be done because the U.S. Supreme Court created a “right to abortion. Those folks hearing you would think you had gone off the deep end! Unfortunately, this is our grim reality in America.
Yes, what is prophesied here is off the deep end, but that is precisely where the Democrat death dealers will take us all – as they have done and have continued to do since they lynched the first subhuman black “property,” a slave, in the 19th century.
Democrat: Stone Cold Killers
Writer Selwyn Duke sees these Democrats for who they truly are:
Leftists were once part of the counter-culture, but the only culture that’s truly theirs is the Culture of Death . . . So you can point fingers, modern Democrats, but in your hearts, some of you, I suspect, know exactly what too many of you are: stone-cold killers. [Murder: It’s a Democrat Thing, The American Thinker, August 7, 2019]
Yes, of course, there are individuals of other political persuasions and parties who are in lockstep with some or all of the Democrat evils but there is no other group or party, entire and in total, so thoroughly bloodied, so completely ensouled with such consummate evil to its dark core. This raises a question. In the past, pastors, bishops, and cardinals used the “seamless garment” subterfuge to keep good Catholics voting for Democrats. More recently, they have employed the political legerdemain of “we are not single-issue voters” so that Democrat support of numerous intrinsic evils would be ignored, some adding theological hocus-pocus about “proportionate reasons.” They seem to come up with new deceptions every election season to convince the faithful, implicitly or explicitly, you can vote for Democrats.
In light of the new Democrat promotion of infanticide, we must ask, “How will the pastors, bishops and cardinals try to deliver the Catholic vote, again, to their Democrats—the Party of Death?”
