As Easter Approaches, World Is Closer to Nuclear Destruction Due to the Choice of "Pro-Life" White Christians in U.S. in 2016 Elections

P.S. About the conflicting polling information indicating that somewhat fewer than 60% of white Catholics may have voted for Trump than the 60% initially reported by exit pollsters: is it 55%? Is it 57%? I refuse to play the quibbling numbers game.

The fact is, a majority of white Catholics voted for Trump, claiming pro-life reasons. And this is shameful. It is a tremendous indictment of the failed moral and pastoral leadership of the U.S. Catholic bishops, and it implicates American Catholics in death and destruction — even as a large percentage of Catholics who voted for Donald Trump claimed "pro-life" motivation as they did so.

The "pro-life" movement has turned out to be a moral horror show, a scam. Apologists for it — and they are legion in the American Catholic church — who cannot see this in the era of Donald Trump appear to have something seriously awry in their moral formation and moral vision.
