Clinton speaks language of faith at annual Catholic dinner

At the Al Smith Dinner in New York, which raises funds for Catholic Charities, Hillary Clinton spoke of the legacy of Al Smith, the first Catholic to be nominated as the presidential candidate for one of the major parties. She also paid tribute to Pope Francis, and to the good work of the Church in New York State. Donald Trump's act was not as well-received, with hostile comments toward Mrs. Clinton that provoked booing for the first time that anyone could remember. more »

Hypocritical conservative criticism of hacked emails between Clinton Catholic supporters

Writes Eric Sapp, "Where was the outrage from some of these same religious leaders when Donald Trump bragged about sexually assaulting women? When he mocked the disabled? Said he didn't need God's forgiveness? Promised to bring back extreme torture? Where were they when Trump called the Pope "disgraceful" or denied DNA evidence last week that 5 black men were falsely imprisoned for raping a white woman?" more »
Catholic Democrats calls on Trump 'Catholic advisors' to resign in wake of revelations about the candidate's attitudes about women

In the wake of the release of an audio tape in which Donald Trump boasted about sexually assaulting unsuspecting women, Catholic Democrats has called on Trump's 33 well-known Catholic 'advisors' to resign immediately. The group includes former Governor Frank Keating, who played a key role in the US bishops' advisory panel on sexual assault. Others, including Joseph Cella, founder of the National Republican Catholic Prayer Breakfast, have been in the business for decades of smearing Catholic Democratic candidates. As Trump goes on the attack to defend himself against abuse charges, a distinct lack of spine is becoming apparent from his conservative Catholic supporters. more »


Please Read: US Catholic Bishops' "Faithful Citizenship"


"He gave us strength in time of trouble, wisdom in time of uncertainty, and sharing in time of happiness. He will always be by our side...[May he] be remembered simply as a good and decent man, who saw wrong and tried to right it, saw suffering and tried to heal it, saw war and tried to stop it. Those of us who loved him and who take him to his rest today, pray that what he was to us and what he wished for others will some day come to pass for all the world. As he said many times, in many parts of this nation, to those he touched and who sought to touch him:

Some men see things as they are and say why. I dream things that never were and say why not."

"Today I say to you that the challenges we face are real. They are serious and they are many. They will not be met easily or in a short span of time. But know this, America: They will be met.

"On this day, we gather because we have chosen hope over fear, unity of purpose over conflict and discord.

"On this day, we come to proclaim an end to the petty grievances and false promises, the recriminations and worn-out dogmas, that for far too long have strangled our politics."
