Good and evil

The mystery of good and evil  is a topic in both readings at Mass today.

President Donald Trump often uses the word 'bad' and speaks of 'bad people' coming to the United States.

Anyone who tries to read Hitler's 'Mein Kampf', which is an almost impossible task, will see how often Hitler talks about 'bad influences', how often he blames 'other people', 'outisders' for all Germany's woes.

In this week's 'Irish Catholic' David Quinn writes how "Christians must assess President Trump on a case-by-case basis."

US senator Bernie Sanders writes: " Donald Trump's goal is to protect the interests of the wealthiest and most powerful in the country."

Sanders versus Quinn? Sanders any day.

The archbishop of Chicago Cardinal Blase Cupich has called President Trump's executive order on immigration a dark day for the United States.

What does David Quinn 'advise' Catholics they should think of Steve Bannon?

Quinn probably finds Bannon great. According to the New York Times, he's in close contact with the extreme Catholic right: Steve Bannon Carries Battles to Another Influential Hub: The Vatican https://nyti.ms/2kHQOCV
