To tell the truth, I have bent over backwards trying to see some good in this woman and her campaign - I have strained the gnat with her VP running mate - looking for a thread of justification to vote for them - hoping, thinking, believing - at least he's a Catholic - a 'liberal' no doubt - but maybe he'll have a deeper conversion or just be more open to life and maybe even have some influence with Hillary on the issues. Maybe his 'seamless garment' might get a hole poked in it when it comes to abortion and gender-politics and homosexual marriage and, and, and, and ... boing!
But then Joe Biden steps out - he's really one of my favorite people in the world BTW! I'm so serious. But then he goes and marries two guys in his house. A good Catholic man marries two men. How does that work?
Then it hits me. I realize I'm in denial, magical thinking mode, co-dependent-enabler gear.
I lost - all is lost - these people have a different faith than I do, they follow a different form of Catholicism than I do. They don't read the same Catechism. That's it! That's how and why they are such good Catholics then! Nope. I'm not judging. I'm not condemning.
I just can't vote for these people.
