Catholics say: "Donald Trump is Not Who We Are"
As a practicing Catholic, I invite all Catholics to stand together against the racial, religious and other intolerance that Donald Trump’s policies and rhetoric promotes. It is putting our Latino, Muslim-American, those with disabilities, and other community members directly at risk.
There is no place for this kind of discrimination in America.
As Catholics, we affirm the values that make us who we are: diversity, openness and compassion.
As Catholics because we believe in welcoming the stranger, and caring for the least among these.
As Catholics we follow the teachings of Jesus, who most often associated himself with the downtrodden and outcast, not the rich or those in positions of power.
Join me in saying: Donald Trump is not who America is, and he is not who Catholics are.
Why is this important?
This is important as Catholics because we believe in welcoming the stranger, and caring for the least among these. Donald Trump's rhetoric is hateful and racist and he does not speak for me as a Catholic or as an American.
