A Vatican Shot Across the Bow for Hard-Line U.S. Catholics


VATICAN CITY — Two close associates of Pope Francis have accused American Catholic ultraconservatives of making an alliance of “hate” with evangelical Christians to back President Trump, further alienating a group already out of the Vatican’s good graces. The authors, writing in a Vatican-vetted journal, singled out Stephen K. Bannon, Mr. Trump’s chief strategist, as a “supporter of an apocalyptic geopolitics” that has stymied action against climate change and exploited fears of migrants and Muslims with calls for “walls and purifying deportations.”

kms central california 7 hours ago As a liberal American Catholic, all I can say is glory hallelujah. The poor, hungry, homeless, marginalized and suffering have been much ignored by the conservative doctrines that place ending abortion and same-sex marriage above all else. Another thing I have noticed about zealous conservative Catholics is their eager insistence on restoration of the historical trappings of Catholicism, as if the true heart of the teachings of Jesus lay in ruthless suppression of the power of women and rote obedience to hierarchy. Nothing could be further from the message of the Gospels.
