When it comes to social issues in our day, “Jewish” has become synonymous with LGBT activism, radical environmentalism, and, of course, abortion-on-demand.
Needless to say, these are the core Democrat Party principles upon which Hillary Clinton ran her campaign.
The Pew Research Center’s Preliminary Report on Election 2016 indicates that former Secretary of State Clinton captured well over two-thirds of the Jewish vote; just as every Democrat candidate for the U.S. Presidency has for decades.
Then again, this same report indicates that Clinton received 45% of the Catholic vote.
When confronted with the latter statistic, so-called “traditionalists” (aka Catholics) and their neo-conservative friends alike are quick to dismiss the very idea.
Those who voted for Clinton are simply “Catholic in name only!”
Though it may be far less obvious, on a certain level the same can be said of the so-called “Jewish” vote.
To be very clear, we must acknowledge that what passes for the “Jewish” religion today is not the religion of Our Lord; for the simple reason that it rejects Christ and therefore God Himself. In fact, we may say that the “Jewish” religion truly only exists in its fulfillment in the Holy Catholic Church.
Even so, the Divine Law as revealed by God in the Old Testament endures; indeed, it is unchangeable, and it is this upon which authentic “Jewish” morality, if you will, stands.
With this in mind, one may reasonably insist that “Jewish” is just as objectively incompatible with Democrat social policies as “Catholic” is.
Sure, the great majority of self-identified Jews in our day would disagree, but not all.
For example, Rabbi Yehuda Levin, founder of the organization “Jews for Morality,” penned an Open Letter to Francis just ahead of his visit to the U.S. entitled:
Dear Pope Francis: Please help us fight the ‘spiritual Holocaust’ of gay unions
The reason Rabbi Levin’s letter received precious little media attention is obvious. I mean, we can’t have a prominent rabbi alerting the broader Jewish community to the abomination of its politics in the eyes of God, can we?
Rabbi Levin’s letter to Francis reveals not just the selectivity of the media, but even more so the sheer hypocrisy of secular Jewish groups and their leaders.
Can you even imagine the firestorm that would have been unleashed if a Catholic priest or Evangelical minister had publicly labeled gay unions a “spiritual Holocaust”?
There can be no doubt that Abraham Foxman of the Anti-Defamation League would have vehemently denounced this invocation of the Holocaust as tantamount to blasphemy!
In any case, Rabbi Levin went on to explain his thinking to Francis:
What can possibly be worse than the murder of an innocent? The Rabbis teach us that introducing a person into licentiousness and promiscuity is a greater spiritual transgression than murdering him! For murder only terminates “this worldly” life, while one who is introduced, encouraged or supported in promiscuous behavior is being eliminated “spiritually” in this world and the next! The misbehavior may well be passed down by the sinner to future generations, as well as to other associates. Thus one may posit that encouraging and codifying promiscuity is a “spiritual” Holocaust!
Now this is what I would call an authentic “Jewish” approach to the LGBT agenda; an approach based on the revealed Divine Law.
Back to the matter of elections…
In 2008, as spokesperson for the Union of Orthodox Rabbis of the U.S. and Canada, Rabbi Levin issued a statement to Jewish voters:
Candidates who support abortion on demand, the homosexual agenda, liberal attitudes towards pornography of any sort — are antithetical to our way of life and it is forbidden to support or vote for them.
This year, Rabbi Levin went a step further, issuing a statement in the name of his organization, Jews for Morality, which read in part:
Hillary Clinton has made it crystal clear that she totally supports the right to murder babies in the womb, up to-and-including the moment of birth.
She has made it crystal clear that religious Americans under her regime will be forced to yield to the politically-correct demands of the moral anarchists who have become so influential in today’s Leftist Democrat Party.
For those reasons, we feel that it is vital that all decent, family people in America take an active role in electing DONALD J. TRUMP for President.
Get that? Jewish morality actually prevailed in Election 2016!
Be sure to share this with any Jewish friends you may have who are either apoplectic or despondent given the fact that Donald J. Trump is now better known as President-Elect.
And yet, we know that Francis continued making cryptic statements against rich arrogant men and wall-builders right up to election day.
I guess in Pope Francis’ hierarchy of accompaniment, the Rabbis are further down the totem pole below the Soros leftist ‘Jews’ but at least far above Traditional Catholics.
You are referring to, The Seven Laws of Noah, aka Noahide Laws.
So, the 54-day Rosary novena?
“It is never too late to have recourse to Jesus and Mary.” (Lucia of Fatima)
Russia is not yet consecrated. True. But in our smaller battles, Our Lady would not intervene when we are begging Her through Her Rosary under the direction of a cardinal?
Everything you say above is absolutely true, but would you not consider that this may have been a small reprieve given to us by Our Queen, She Who is “terrible as an army in battle array”?
“It is never too late to have recourse …..”
Here’s an update on that ‘Fatima Cartoon’
From this article:
Using Google Translate we discover some details:
– Pope Francis will appear as a CG character in the film, and the creators are hoping he’ll be able to lend his own voice to it.
– There is emphasis that Christians, Muslims and Jews are working together on the music of the film.
– The Shepherd Children of Fatima will be portrayed as ‘contemporary kids.’
– The film will feature Pope Francis’ own ‘Marian sayings.’ (Does this include “Lies! I was deceived?”)
– Film is “suprareligious” “not just for Catholics”???
– The 3 secrets will appear in a “fun way” alongside the “Marian Popes.”
If only more Jews were like Levin. Sadly, they’re few and far between. I’m reminded of the most illuminating five-part series on Vdare entitled: “Why So Much Jewish Fear and Loathing of Donald Trump?” by Kevin MacDonald
Also see this recent essay there by Paul Gottfried entitled: “Yes, Virginia (Dare), There ARE Righteous Jews For Trump.”
This same Rabbi has defended Traditional Catholic’s saying the Old Mass and defended the same praying for the Jews in the Good Friday prayers when Abe Foxman and his clan where demanding that Pope Benedict change the Good Friday prayers for the Jews. He said ‘who are we to tell them they can’t pray for us? Do they tell us what to pray?’ I have every hope that this rabbi Yehuda Levine will one day be converted to the True Faith. God bless him!
Yes. So many Catholics prayed intensely for the TRUMP victory. That’s why it happened–And it happened in a BIG way. Now if we could just pray as vehemently for the CONSECRATION OF RUSSIA TO THE IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY, and for God to speedily send the Holy Prelate to rebuild the Church as Our Lady of Good Success said HE would…Also, she said we should be praying for this man to come so that it would happen more quickly. Unfortunately, I don’t hear any Bishops calling for 54 day novenas for this…why? I don’t know. They, by now, should have heard of Our Lady of Good Success and should be preaching up a storm about her, but they aren’t…I guess all this Catholic nonsense is not as important as TRUMP being elected to the presidency. We are just a faithless bunch. Come on!! The miracle of the Sun for crying out loud! What more does God have to do? It is so Old Testamentish..like how the people just sometimes ignored God or tried to hide from Him..and today these guys call themselves progessivists?!? All God wants us to do is completely rely on Him. It can’t be THAT hard for us. I mean He IS God, after all! I think if we could just rely upon God even as much as we are relying on TRUMP, than things could REALLY happen!
45% of so-called Catholics voted for a radical pro-abortion candidate vs 52% for the pro-life candidate. A victory cloaked in a tragedy.
This battle ain’t over folks. It’s time to hit them hard while they’re down to make sure they cannot get up ever again.

I too pray and hope that the Rabbi will convert to the True Faith, as I pray that Francis and the majority of hierarchy convert to the True Faith, as I pray that the whole of mankind is converted to the True Faith.
Nothing could be stranger than a Jewish Rabbi defending our True Faith against the apostate who sits on the Chair of Peter who is destroying it.
Many, many of us have been praying VEHEMENTLY for the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary for years.
The ugly reality that even most Catholics will not admit is that the election of Trump may slow the process of national, bodily, and soul destruction that the U.S. has been on since its inception, it is still the will of the majority to continue this process as is evident everywhere you look.
The Jews ought to fear the Lord, as we all should.
From a standpoint of moral beliefs, one must distinguish between Talmud Jews and Torah Jews. Talmud Jews vastly outnumber the Torah Jews and dominate American culture. The Talmud in many ways negates the Torah (the first five books of the Old Testament). The Democratic Party espouses the anti-morality of Talmud Jews. More accurately then, Jewish Torah morality prevailed over Jewish Talmud anti-morality, kind of like David and Goliath all over again.
I would like to add, that actually being a Torah Jew is impossible since the destruction of the Temple in 70 AD, but one can still subscribe to the moral teachings.
