TKC SUNDAY MUST READ!!! KANSAS CITY BISHOP JAMES V. JOHNSTON ENCOURAGES VOTERS TO CHOOSE LESSER EVIL DESPITE 'OBVIOUSLY FLAWED' CANDIDATES!!!



The upcoming Presidential election has many Kansas City Catholics confronting a crisis of conscience given the horrible options presented.

Accordingly . . .

CHECK THE LATEST WORD FROM THE KANSAS CITY CATHOLIC HIERARCHY DISCOURAGING VOTER ABSTINENCE AND TELLING THE FAITHFUL TO CHOOSE THE LESSER EVIL!!!

Here's the word . . .

Bishop James V. Johnston: "I encourage you to vote. It is very important that you exercise your duty as a Christian citizen in the selection of our leaders. This year is very unusual in that the two main candidates for president are so obviously flawed and viewed unfavorably by a majority of the country. Many are discouraged and some have told me they may not vote because they so dislike both candidates. I believe this is a serious mistake. At the very least, we should vote to choose the candidate that we believe will do the least damage."

This is a provocative stance and the only good news in this statement is that the first instinct of many locals is to take a somewhat Zen approach and just sit this one out . . .



Still, in order to provide more contradictory advice than the catechism itself . . . The Kansas City cleric directs his flock to a document concocted by the United States Conference Of Catholic Bishops for reference: Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship

It's a good starting point for the holier than thou and a look at the handiwork of a group that hosts some of the same community who helped to move molest-y priests around to keep them out of legal trouble.

Nevertheless, this word from on high encouraging voter participation is hopeful as more Americans opt out and lose faith in both the two-party hegemony dominating American Democracy and organized religion in general.

You decide . . .

Trump and Hillary both worshiped as false idols.

Trump is going to make God great again!

Good advice indeed.

But read the text the Bishop has offered more closely and then look at the more important consequence of this election. The Bishop is talking about the Supreme Court choice confronting the next president.

Hillary will no doubt suggest a new Supreme Court justice who supports abortion. Trump would do the opposite.

Therefore, look at where Catholics stand and where the candidates stand and it's easy to see who is in direct opposition.

Methinks the good Bishop is asking voters to hold their nose and vote Trump.

There are more choices on the ballot than these two. Maybe we should vote for the least evil.

The Pope is a communist apparatchik. The Catholic Church is hip deep in plots and initiatives to replace our native population with illegal immigrants who will vote Democrat.

Fuck the Pope.

Politics under the guise of religion and objectivity is no better than the Theocracy in Iran, just more insidious, nefarious and oleaginous. The separation of church and state should be enforced.

This Bishop should confine himself to ecclesiastical matters and rhetorically render unto Caesar and God when directed by events not agendas.

Chuck, he doesn't seem to be endorsing any candidate. Unlike the evangelicals who seem to be 100% behind the thrice-married and multi-affaired Trump.

Look again.
The Catholic church hates 1) abortion 2) birth control 3) women 4)gays 5) liberals of any sort.
I don't think that this information is a big secret.

Of course, he is telling his dwindling flock to vote Republican.

The Kansas City Atheist Coaltion will, as usual, have nothing to say about this.

Or any other relevant topic.

With one exception.....


If you see any of those young people at the INTERNATIONAL HOUSE OF PRAYER lead by Mike Bickle trying to PRAY or PASS OUT BIBLES please notify their new gay DIRECTOR or their PRESIDENT Mr. Hide.


Thank you for your attention.

The KCACers are irrelevant 8:23.

They talk big but their group after all these years couldn't even fill a small town church and they contribute only by attaching themselves to Christian Ministries like Micah House.

And their new director is an ex episcopalion leader who is gay and who is now going to focus on LGBT issues.

Which is fine, but a lot of young atheists are NOT gay and don't want to be labeled as such.

Trump is the satanic god of hell fire. Only Satan would put his hand on his hot daughter's ass like that.

Then the KCAC should not have a problem with Trump.

That hosted the leader of the Satanic Temple at a meeting Friday night.

No shit.

They are promoting after school Satan Clubs.

Chuck has lost his mind ..."replace our native population with illegal immigrants who will vote Democrat."

White people are NOT the "native" population. White people were the original "illegal immigrants".

I don't see how anyone can say that they "are equally flawed".

Vote for Gary. Legalize weed, Dude! We need more weed.

11:30: If a native is a person born in a specified place or associated with a place by birth, whether subsequently resident there or not, then anyone born here is a native.

If you're going to change the definition to where one's ethnic origins are, then "Native Americans" aren't native, since their ancestors came from somewhere else, which would make them the original "illegal immigrants."

With respect, Bishop James Johnston is merely a man holding an executive position within the local Catholic Church hierarchy. In America, I think it's safe to say that few individuals are still closing their eyes and blindly following the dictates of the church.

When weighing the current electoral choices for President/Vice-President, one may consider the following points:

Clinton/Kaine = Clinton is an amoral, thoroughly corrupt individual serving at the behest of the military industrial corporatocracy. She is a promoter of gay marriage, abortion, warmongering, racism, and elitism. She is legally married to a longtime drug abuser (marijuana, cocaine) and serial sexual assaulter, though the marriage is merely a business contrivance. Her daughter's biological father is not Bill Clinton. Hillary is a lesbian.

Tim Kaine is an effeminate Roman Catholic who served the American Intelligence State as an operative to John Negroponte when he was U.S. Ambassador to Honduras (1981-85) seeking to overthrow the Sandinista government of Nicaragua. See Iran-Contra Affair and the CIA cocaine/weapons pipeline between U.S. and the Contra rebels. Kaine nearly became Obama's running mate in 2008, but settled for DNC chairman. Roman Catholic Kaine supports abortion rights, gay marriage, capital punishment of prisoners, Obamacare, global warming theories, and received an "F" rating from the NRA.

12:58, don't argue logic with Byron, he is so fucking stupid he can't even understand what you are explaining to him. In fact he is so stupid, mean and hateful, his own family has banned him from the tribe.

See Byron's way of thought would mean he would have to pack his own bags and leave the country since he is an illegal person here. But sadly he is still here flapping his hate spewing piehole.

YEEEEEHAW, let the sons of God and man bear witness! Trump pays no taxes! The Devil's hands are his ideal playground! He thinks backwards! He does it for fun! They say a godzillion is the highest number there is. Well by God! Trump counts to a godzillion and one!

Trump got cancer and he spit up the tumor and buttered his bread with the juice! His droppings bore through the earth and erupt volcanoes in China!

YEEE HAW! Gut Blowout!

12:58, they were not illegal immigrants, since there were no laws against crossing the Bering land bridge against a red light back then. Nor against the Europeans' crossing the ocean a few thousand years later to do the same thing.

^^^^I agree; however, I'm trying to show Byron where his logic would lead. He supposedly has a Mensa level IQ.
