At a meeting of Catholic Bishops in Fort Lauderdale, FL several high ranking members of the Clergy called for a complete overhaul of the Church’s guiding document for voters.
According to Newsmax, the Bishops spent a good deal of time chastising Trump for pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord, while spending zero time standing in solidarity with the President on the issue of abortion. Trump has been the most pro-life President in the abortion era.
Nor did the Bishops discuss the escalation of conflict in the Korean Peninsula. Surely that falls under the voter’s guide section title “Promoting Peace.”
“Catholics must also work to avoid war and to promote peace,” the document says. This is of particular importance, as there is a danger in the present time of becoming indifferent to war because of the number of armed conflicts. War is never a reflection of what ought to be but a sign that something more true to human dignity has failed. The Catholic tradition recognizes the legitimacy of just war teaching when defending the innocent in the face of grave evil, but we must never lose sight of the cost of war and its harm to human life.”
Trump has shown anything but indifference to the threat of war with North Korea.
But according to Cardinal Blase J. Cupich of Chicago, the present document does not represent “the new body of teaching” as taught by the present Pope, specifically in regards to issues like climate change, poverty, and immigration.
The document, last updated in 2015, details traditional views on issues like marriage, abortion, and religious liberty. Some of the Clergy, Cupich included, are pushing for a complete re-write.
The voting guide is what one would expect from a church, very conservative.
“Abortion and euthanasia have become preeminent threats to human life and dignity because they directly attack life itself, the most fundamental good and the condition for all others. Abortion, the deliberate killing of a human being before birth, is never morally acceptable and must always be opposed.”
Bishop Roger McElroy of San Diego said that the document does not represent “Catholic teaching as it is now,” alluding to the increasing liberalization of the church.
Newsmax fears that the Catholic Church moving any further to the left will alienate the Bishops from their flock, making them “just another cadre of grumpy Never-Trumpers.”
WATCH: Joe Biden Reads Teleprompter Incorrectly: “I Got to the Senate 180 Years Ago”
That kind of experience is unmatched.
Joe Biden stated that he “got to the Senate 180 years ago” when delivering a scripted campaign speech from a room in his Delaware home on Saturday.

That would’ve been in 1840, when Martin Van Buren was President. There were 52 Senators at the time, and the Democratic Party controlled the chamber, with a Whig minority in opposition. Biden was talking about supporting first responders and firefighters, who would’ve existed in a vastly different capacity in the mid-19th century.
Biden did laugh a little bit after he made the error, which seems to have stemmed from faulty teleprompter instructions or Biden simply misreading the screen in front of him.

Biden’s campaign appearances have been almost entirely scripted as of late, with the Democratic Party’s elder figure even going so far as reading from a teleprompter during interviews.
It’s very sad that the Democratic Party elite and Joe Biden’s handlers have allowed this to continue. A man with an arguably severe level of cognitive decline should not be the President of a nation of 330 million people. That is not right.
However, you almost can’t blame them for binding him concisely to the words on the teleprompter. Unscripted campaign appearances have proved to be even more of a disaster, with Biden forgetting the words to the Pledge of Allegiance in a campaign speech earlier this week, for example.
