Vigano’s letter to Trump is not Catholic

I was extremely distressed this morning when I read in NCR that Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, former Papal Nuncio to the United States wrote an open letter to Donald Trump. In this letter he said “we have been witnessing the formation of two opposing sides that I would call Biblical: the children of light and the children of darkness.”  He praised Trump for leading the children of light and opposing the children of darkness.

A number of priests and bishops supported Vigano by posting the letter on their parish website or facebook. In at least one case, after a parishioner objected, the priest deleted it.

I am currently reading Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler. It is absolutely amazing the similarities between Hitler and Trump. Both werenarcissistic at a pathological level.  Both blamed others for their mistakes and both took credit for things they did not do. Hitler appealed to the German masses because he played on their oppression by the Hapssburgs while Trump appeals to the supremacy of whites. Hitler did whatever he could to promote his agenda. Trump is doing that today.

Vigano supports Trump for his opposition to abortion, but Vigano and others fail to remember that Trump supported abortion until he decided to seek the Presidency. Vigano support Trump because Trump supports religious freedom of Christians. We live in a multi religious country and world. We can no longer think in terms of Christians vs. all the others,but must think in terms of the human family which is made up of many diverse siblings and cousins.
