Statement from CatholicVote.org
The following statement was released by CatholicVote.org:
“Newly released comments by Donald Trump leaked from an audio recording in 2005 are disgusting and simply indefensible. In the recording, he brags about sexually assaulting women. Christians should not waste their breath defending them. The mere fact that this conversation is occurring in the context of a presidential campaign impoverishes us all.
“While CatholicVote.org has not endorsed Donald Trump, we have publicly defended his proposals on school choice and parental leave, his pledges on judicial nominations, and his recent commitment to defend and protect religious liberty. We have likewise called attention to the enormous threats posed by Hillary Clinton’s policies if she were to become president, while criticizing the cowardice and scandal of Tim Kaine’s exploitation of Catholicism. Our goal has been simple: secure as much good as possible from a terribly difficult presidential contest among two extraordinarily flawed candidates.
“Catholic voters rightly will be unnerved by these developments. In our opinion, the viability of Donald Trump’s candidacy is now in question. Furthermore, the good many hoped to achieve, in spite of Trump’s many well-known flaws, is also now in doubt. If Donald Trump is unwilling to step aside, the Republican National Committee must act soon out of basic decency and self-preservation.”
