I was intrigued to read Mr. Knight's letter of Dec. 17. In it, he expressed his confidence in the judgment and temperament of the current president for no specific reason. He then proceeded to arbitrarily condemn as "hypocritical" those Catholics who vote for the Democratic Party. I am not quite sure why, as he didn't specify.
But I do know that politicians of both major parties are consistently on the wrong side of the ultimate pro-life issue: wars of aggression. The incumbent president has given no reason to think he's any better.
What I do know is that the head of the Catholic Church has been a vocal critic of the actions, policies and divisive non-leadership of the White House occupant. I wonder if Mr. Knight would include His Holiness Pope Francis among those "hypocritical Catholics."
