Hillary Clinton: We don't need to hear from a Catholic priest

LifeSite News is reporting that, "Hillary Clinton's pledge to 'defend' abortion-on-demand and support Planned Parenthood won her a rousing response at a Democratic town hall event in New Hampshire on Wednesday - but not everyone was applauding.

A viral video shows a priest in a clerical collar shaking his head in disagreement as Clinton says, 'We’re going to defend a woman’s right to make her own health care decisions. We’re going to defend Planned Parenthood.'

'We're going to defend marriage equality and end discrimination against LGBT Americans,' she continues. 'And we're going to take on the gun lobby.'

The clergyman, who confirmed he is a Roman Catholic priest in New Hampshire but did not wish for his name to be revealed, told The Blaze that he disagreed with Clinton's views on abortion..."

And when this same priest wanted to ask Hillary Clinton a ququestion, he was prevented from doing so.  Is anyone really surprised by this?  Ms. Clinton isn't interested in authentic freedom. She has an agenda and will not tolerate views which contradict her own.

In his Encyclical Letter Redemptoris Missio (The Mission of the Redeemer), Pope John Paul II said that, "The Church proposes; she imposes nothing." (No. 39). Such was the teaching of Vatican II: "The Church strictly forbids forcing anyone to embrace the faith, or alluring or enticing people by worrisome wiles. By the same token, she also strongly insists on this right, that no one be frightened away from the faith by unjust vexations on the part of others." (Ad Gentes, No. 13). And Dignitatis Humanae, No. 10 teaches that: "It is one of the major tenets of Catholic doctrine that man's response to God in faith must be free: no one therefore is to be forced to embrace the Christian faith against his own will. This doctrine is contained in the word of God and it was constantly proclaimed by the Fathers of the Church. The act of faith is of its very nature a free act. Man, redeemed by Christ the Savior and through Christ Jesus called to be God's adopted son, cannot give his adherence to God revealing Himself unless, under the drawing of the Father, he offers to God the reasonable and free submission of faith. It is therefore completely in accord with the nature of faith that in matters religious every manner of coercion on the part of men should be excluded. In consequence, the principle of religious freedom makes no small contribution to the creation of an environment in which men can without hindrance be invited to the Christian faith, embrace it of their own free will, and profess it effectively in their whole manner of life."

But while the Church respects freedom of conscience and shuns any form of coercion, our Holy Father reminds us that, "We are building a dictatorship of relativism that does not recognize anything as definitive and whose ultimate goal consists solely of one's own ego and desires.
We, however, have a different goal: the Son of God, the true man. He is the measure of true humanism. An "adult" faith is not a faith that follows the trends of fashion and the latest novelty; a mature adult faith is deeply rooted in friendship with Christ. It is this friendship that opens us up to all that is good and gives us a criterion by which to distinguish the true from the false, and deceit from truth."

This dictatorship of relativism seeks to impose its immoral agenda on Christians in the name of "tolerance." But this "tolerance" is a sham. It is simply an attempt to make an idol out of a false conception of freedom. Again, our Holy Father explains that, "..what clearly stands behind the modern era's radical demand for freedom is the promise: You will be like God...The implicit goal of all modern freedom movements is, in the end, to be like a god, dependent on nothing and nobody, with one's own freedom not restricted by anyone else's...The primeval error of such a radically developed desire for freedom lies in the idea of a divinity that is conceived as being purely egotistical. The god thus conceived of is, not God, but an idol, indeed, the image of what the Christian tradition would call the devil, the anti-god, because therein lies the radical opposite of the true God: the true God is, of his own nature, being-for (Father), being-from (Son), and being-with (Holy Spirit). Yet man is in the image of God precisely because the being-for , from, and with constitute the basic anthropological shape. Whenever people try to free themselves from this, they are moving, not toward divinity, but toward dehumanizing, toward the destruction of being itself through the destruction of truth. The Jacobin variant of the idea of a rebellion against being human in itself, rebellion against truth, and that is why it leads people - as Sartre percipiently observed - into a self-contradictory existence that we call hell. It has thus become fairly clear that freedom is linked to a yardstick, the yardstick of reality - to truth*. Freedom to destroy oneself or to destroy others is not freedom but a diabolical parody. The freedom of man is a shared freedom, freedom in a coexistence of other freedoms, which are mutually limiting and thus mutually supportive: freedom must be measured according to what I am, what we are - otherwise it abolishes itself."

In the name of "tolerance," the New World Order seeks to impose its rebellion from truth on all. It will not tolerate any dissent, any disagreement. Coercion is an acceptable tool in a dictatorship. Soon, the New Order will use violence to achieve its goals and not just coercion and propaganda. In the end, every dictatorship must rely on violence in its vain attempt to hold onto power.

Is there really any doubt that Ms. Clinton would shrink from such violence?

I always thought Hillary Clinton was a lesbian so her support of LGBT would be bang on. Catholics should avoid voting for her.

O my Lord Jesus, I’ve grown so tired
of this psychotic brave new world of ours
belief in God almost completely expired
but they surrendered to satanic powers

I’m a stranger to this “selfie” generation
In love and charity I was raised to behave
not in a ‘me me me’ and myself adoration
the left hand knew not what the right gave

I hear you My child, I was waiting for you
come sit with Me, surrender your frustration
I will comfort you with My refreshing dew
with Me, you’ll find no worldly aggravation

I understand you all too well, My child,
My heart brakes looking at My creation
they give Me blasphemy and run wild
preferring to end up in eternal damnation

O my Jesus, my Savior, I love You so much
I offer You all my pain and daily sorrows
do with me whatever You want, Your touch
will heal me in my todays and tomorrows

Without You my Almighty Heavenly Father
I wouldn’t be able to overcome this world
without You life would be more of a disaster
In You the most beautiful future unfurled

Thank You Lord for creating me and saving me.
Your child I am forever.
