Catholics can’t be Democrats anymore.

One of my friends shared this article on Facebook written by the esteemed Cardinal Timothy Dolan, a Catholic leader my family and I respect. What I like about this article is that it points out why I can’t ever be a Democrat, unlike I’m sure my ancestors on my mom’s side of the family were. I know at least more than one of my Irish Catholic family members were Democrats in the past, but some, like my grandmother, have felt alienated from the Democrats and decided to switch parties. In my opinion, I can’t be a part of a party that would alienate someone even if they disagreed with one thing on their party platform (remember the DNC Chairman’s remark about pro-life candidates?), so I guess that’s part of the reason I never considered being a Democrat. Of course, I disagree with a lot of policies of the Democrats, but I do really think that Republicans and traditional conservative ideas (such as those promoted on this blog) really align more with most of the Church’s teachings anyways. Honestly, with the way the Democrats are alienating people like they are my fellow Catholics on pro-life, LGBTQ, and other issues, I honestly wonder when this whole identity politics thing will come to bite them in the rear.
