Over the years, Simcha Fisher has done a lot of good work for the Church. You can like her prose style and online persona or not. It's a question of taste. But a lot of people like it, and I suspect that her writings have on the whole enriched their Catholic faith.
I'm not saying she's not a Catholic, or isn't a faithful Catholic or good Catholic or whatever.
Nor am I saying she's a liberal Catholic or "seamless garment" Catholic (even though she often sounds like one).
Just a Psycho-Catholic.
And to be fair, the subtitle of her new blog is:
open to life; losing my mind
I think Trump-hatred has driven her crazy.
She'd vote against him even if it were reported that his opponent's campaign staffers drank blood.
And Trump-hatred has apparently driven her - a Catholic - to blame Catholic Trump admirers for the murder of babies. I suppose the blame is arguably indirect. But it's still pretty nasty. And I think in this case, at least, un-Catholic:
Women seek abortion for a reason. Donald Trump, and the people who admire him and imitate him, are that reason. Trump has been telling us who he is. Pro-lifers, let’s believe him.
I love you too, Mrs. Fisher.
Mrs. Fisher has, according to her blog, voted Republican at least once in the past, but I suspect from her overall political views that general anti-Republican bias is a major part of her anti-Trump thing.
Let's accept for the sake of argument, that Trump is a misogynist whose personal attitude and behavior has contributed to the general feeling of helplessness or oppression among many woman that leads them to seek abortions (as Fisher sees it).
...because they’re living in a culture where men feel that they have a right to push their way into women’s lives, grab whatever they want from women, blame and shame women for anything that happens next, and leave whenever the relationship becomes inconvenient for him. (Donald Trump Donald Trump Donald Trump Donald Trump.)
Women end up having abortions mainly when they feel like they have no other choice: when they feel that their lives and their identities are only worthwhile if they’re more serviceable to people who have power over them.
Those descriptions apply to Bill Clinton and his enabling wife to a T. Or is being raped by a man and then threatened to keep quiet by his wife not count in the above generalization of horribles? Of course, it hasn't been proven in a court of law that Bill Clinton raped Juanita Broaddrick (or even that Hillary threatened her). But it has been shown beyond any doubt that Hillary Clinton worked hard to attack the honor and credibility of the long line of other Clinton women, whether they actually accused him of harassment, were exploited by him as young staffers or were "mere" consensual girlfriends.
The "nuts and sluts" strategy, it's been called.
Clearly, Fisher has somehow discounted or filtered all this out.
Apparently her own standards don't apply to Democrats.
