Donald the Dictator: Take Note, Catholics

Donald the Dictator: Take Note, Catholics

Following up on my last post on Donald Trump’s dictatorial inclination, I appreciated The Washington Post‘s Dana Milbank’s piece voicing the same theme.  I was also happy to see a common letter signed by prominent Catholics urging Catholics not to vote for Trump, citing his promises to carry our torture and reprisals against terrorists’ families.  But a poll of Michigan voters, where primaries are being held today, shows Catholic Republicans favoring Trump disproportionately.  Let’s hope they will read the letter and listen to their church.
