The Pope has clearly said trump is not a Christian.

Evangelicals don't consider Catholics Christian either, so there's that.

Mad Scientist: Second Amendment Jesus: it's right there in the bible.

Ah, I remember that passage... "And Jesus spoketh, 'It's comin' right at us!'"

As  with all things, Trump has only a superficial understanding, deeply shallow and ignores everything the Church theoretically stands for.

Am I the only one who thinks it's especially weird to be talking about being "pro-life" while touting the 2nd?   But hey, it's Trump.   Someone should point out that the Church was full of Social Justice Warriors and Francis is trying to bring that back after the decades of JPII and Benjie.

The Church also sponsored the Crusades, so they have had long stretches of Second Amendment Uber Alles as well as short aberrations of Liberation Theology.

Yeah, the Crusades....that was happening right after Vatican II.   The Church is anti-death penalty for starters.

Look, I was a Catholic, and my Catholic heroes were the Berrigan Brothers and the murdered sisters in El Salvador, Oscar Romero, and the murdered Jesuits of El Salvador, murdered by US trained  military.  Francis has moved towards reconciliation with the movement.  After decades of JPII and Ratzinger.

The station Trump was interviewed on is a very American, very right wing station.   The Church has had to rap it's knuckles a few times because of it's actions.

The first Trump/Biden debate should open with Trump going first, and being asked "In three minutes or less, please describe in precise detail how a bill becomes law"

The answer should be both frightening and epically stupid.

Save the fetus so you can shoot it later?

All Trump's gotta do is say "we're going all-in on banning abortion and please ignore the fact that the other guy is a life-long Catholic, he's really an ANTIFA BLM mega-socialist who wants to kill all the babies" and then you've locked up the Catholic vote.
 
2020-08-05 11:15:15 AM  
Since Trump's only been to church (any church) a handful of times, I'm not surprised he knows nothing of Catholics or religion in general.

And he breaks all of commandments, so really, who needs to hear from this guy about morality, ethics, or religion.

Guns or priests?

I can't tell you the spiritual rush I would feel every Holy Thursday when Father Dennis would wrap up the communion by reenacting the victory delivered by the use of the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch.

We're sorry, the 2nd amendment is no long available to be used as a crutch for conservative arguments.  You see, the gun humpers didn't show up to defend the 1st amendment in Portland like they always said they would.  This means they get to shut the fark up forever.

Thanks,
Everyone

Trump wants the Catholic Church's support because they both tolerate pedophiles.

Thoughts and prayers sent after the church shootings work in Trump's mind.

'and lo he stood on the mountain

seeing his multitudes of followers

he opened his mouth and said

"Blessed are those who call it a magazine and not a clip

Blessed are those who know that the AR in AR-15 doth not stand for Assault Rifle

and Blessed are those that argue in pedantry over gun control

Now go forth and spread my Gospel in every forum"

OldRod: Catholics sure do love them some guns I guess?


Which is rather hilarious, since one of the original gun control laws/measures in the US (the colonies, really) was to deny arms to Catholics.

"If I wasn't here you wouldn't have the Second Amendment"

I'm not a Constitutional scholar, but I believe that to get rid of an entire amendment to the Constitution it takes a little more than you sitting on the sh*tter tweeting "Don't touch the second amendment! MAGA! KAG!"

US Catholics have chosen Trump over their Pope.

Uh, who is he talking about?
 
2020-08-05 11:43:22 AM  
I'd normally just give him one big "fark you" for saying something like this.  Under the circumstances however, I'll add another hearty "fark you".  November can't come soon enough.  Or January.

Can we pay attention to the last 100 years of that 2000 year old institution? I mean, they used to torture people cruelly, too - but I don't consider that relevant given that nobody in the church is really clamoring for that anymore.
 
2020-08-05 11:43:43 AM  
Ah, yes, one of Trump's many executive orders:

I, Donald J Trump, hereby save the second amendment.

If not for that, Obama would have taken it away long ago.

My boss doesn't consider the Pope to be Catholic. Apparently, there are a number of Catholics who believe the current Pope is actually part of a conspiracy to destroy the Church from within. Shockingly, the media and Democrats are involved in the plot as well.

Figured he would have gone with the "filthy gays" approach.

Trump was buddies with Epstein so the Catholic Church just might give him hand.

Yep. Pretty much why I'm a lapsed Catholic these days.

Went to Catholic school from K through college. My favorite memories of school was everyone taking their guns to get blessed on the first day back after Christmas break. Yup guns and holy gun oil it a major tradition.

I've said for years that D's would win a lot more elections (especially in rural areas) if they simply went neutral on the 2A as a collective versus their stance now.

Republicans are NOT some staunch believers of firearms rights at all, they just pretend to like guns because the image of the stereotypical gun owner is a loud right wing white male. Consequently, that image is the same reason why D's are loath on the 2A in the first place.
