TITUSVILLE, Fla., Aug. 31, 2016 /Christian Newswire/ — “The canonization of Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta on the day before Labor Day contrasts sharply with the abortion promoting presidential candidacy of Hillary Clinton,” John M. Snyder of Telum Associates said here today.
“The moral differences between these two prominent women bring to mind a core meditation in the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus,” Snyder continued.
“This is the meditation on two standards, the standard of Christ and the standard of Satan,” Snyder added. “The defense of the right to life and opposition to abortion by St. Teresa as a follower of Christ contrasts with the promotion of abortion, euthanasia and same-sex marriage by Hillary as a puppet of the devil.”
“Catholic bishops should take note,” Snyder declared. “The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and individual bishops have a moral obligation to inform parishioners they cannot vote in good conscience for a political candidate who supports abortion. That means Hillary Clinton.”
Snyder noted, “St. Teresa told attendees at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C. in 1994 that, ‘The greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child, a direct killing of the innocent child, murder by the mother herself.’
“Among the attendees was First Lady Hillary Clinton, who did not applaud, but ‘glistened in the lights and moved not a muscle, looking at the speaker in a determinedly semi-pleasant way,’ recalled Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan.”
Snyder noted Life News indicated Hillary would “make Christians change their religious views to support abortion.”
He said an American Values Action video showed Clinton stating: “deep seated cultural codes, religious beliefs, and structural biases have to be changed,” “the unborn person doesn’t have constitutional rights,” and “the only people that I would ever appoint to the Supreme Court are people who believe that Roe v. Wade is settled law.”
“Clinton Supreme Court justice nominees would rule to undermine freedom of religion,” Snyder warned. “A Hillary presidency would persecute individual Catholics and the institutional Catholic Church.
“Catholic bishops should stop acting like weasels and accept their moral responsibility to tell parishioners they may not vote in good conscience for abortion promoter Clinton. Voters could select the Trump-Pence right to life ticket.”
