Catholic Priest Claims Donald Trump Voters are “Going to Hell”


At least one Catholic priest in the Chicago area apparently believes that people who vote for Donald Trump will go to hell.

An acquaintance of mine, Ted (not his real name), wrote the following in an email:

After Mass today I was praying in front of the tabernacle – I was all alone in the church – and our pastor in the back of the church said, ‘I don’t care who hears it. Anyone voting for Trump is going to hell. It’s a mortal sin.’

This is an absolute bush league cheap shot toward me…. I’m just going to keep praying for him.

Ted is an orthodox Catholic layman. The priest who allegedly made the remarks is Father Jack Plotkowski, pastor of Saint Zachary Parish in Des Plaines, Illinois.

Through email, I contacted Father Plotkowski – as well as the associate pastor and two officials in the Archdiocese of Chicago’s communications office – to get his side of the story.

As of the time this column was submitted for publishing, there’s been no response.

A priest who makes such foolish and destructive statements is, quite frankly, a danger to souls. Even if it was somehow his idea of a joke (which I sincerely doubt), it was a terrible one. A sick one.

I can only imagine the type of horrid advice he might be giving to Catholics seeking his priestly guidance on important moral matters.

Contrast what Father Plotkowski allegedly asserted with what Father Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life, recently asserted regarding the choice between Trump and Clinton:

…[T]he alternative to Trump is monumentally worse – not only in terms of the candidate personally, but of the entire army that follows him or her into so many offices like secretary of state, of HHS, surgeon general, attorney general, and thousands of other positions, not to mention the courts.

We don’t just elect an individual to the presidency; we elect an entire army of people whose worldview is marked by the party platform….

What an incredible reparation Mr. Trump is making now for any past faults by the very fact that he is running as the Republican nominee for president and is ready to nominate the right kind of judges and sign the right kinds of legislation, which will steer our nation away from so many morally corrupt public policies. A penitent sinner could hardly have a more substantial opportunity to make reparation.

  1. Pansy narcissist priest. If he’s really concerned about “Ted”‘s salvation, he could talk to him. Instead, he risks publicly humiliating him, a big no-no for sensitive modernists who bend over backwards to be pastorally sensitive to sinners such as faggots and adulterers.

  2. What, I can’t believe it, you mean this priest actually believes in mortal sin? And Hell ? Wow, he might even be Catholic at that rate, or do those two doctrines only apply in reference to Traditional minded Catholics?

    Imagine that priest said those same words to someone who presented themselves as homosexuals? Imagine the outrage, imagine how fast he would be ‘relieved of parish duties’.

    Don’t you love this conciliar hypocrisy, it just keeps getting better !

  3. It obvious that priest has eaten to much kielbasa as a child and the nitrates have destroyed his ability to think rationally !

  4. Well, thanks to WikiLeaks, we now know that Hillary’s campaign staffers are not vegetarians, since they supposedly consume human bodily fluids to gain power from Lucifer in ritual meals. One should be suspicious of liberal vegetarians who advocate abortion and fetal stem cell harvesting.

    • Clinton Campaign Linked to Satanic Rituals


      by Rodney Pelletier • ChurchMilitant • November 4, 2016 46

      DETROIT – A new email released by WikiLeaks shows a fascination with the occult involving John Podesta, Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, and his brother.


      The email was sent from occult artist Marina Abramović in June 2015 and is addressed to John Podesta’s brother Tony — a long-time Democrat lobbyist involved with the Clintons and Obama.

      Dear Tony,

      I am so looking forward to the Spirit Cooking dinner at my place. Do you think you will be able to let me know if your brother is joining?

      All my love, Marina

      Tony asks his brother, “Are you in NYC Thursday July 9[?] Marina wants you to come to dinner[.] Mary?”

      A YouTube video shows Abramović painting with a congealed mixture of menstrual blood, breast milk and semen. With it, she paints the phrases: “Mix fresh breast milk with fresh sperm,” “Fresh morning urine, sprinkle over nightmare dreams,” and “‘With a sharp knife cut deeply into your middle finger, eat the pain.” She finishes by pouring blood over a small human-shaped doll.

      While some contend Abramović’s spirit cooking as mere performance art, it’s actually a satanic ritual started by noted satanist Aleister Crowley.

      The use of human body fluids is common in satanic “sacraments,” more notably in Crowley’s “cake of light,” which is his sacrilegious take on the Blessed Sacrament. It’s a host composed of flour, honey, and various bodily fluids including menstrual blood, semen, and breast milk. Crowley noted in his book “Magick Book 4, Liber ABA”:

      A Eucharist of some sort should most assuredly be consummated daily by every magician, and he should regard it as the main sustenance of his magical life. It is of more importance than any other magical ceremony, because it is a complete circle. The whole of the force expended is completely re-absorbed; yet the virtue is that vast gain represented by the abyss between Man and God.

      The magician becomes filled with God, fed upon God, intoxicated with God. Little by little his body will become purified by the internal lustration of God; day by day his mortal frame, shedding its earthly elements, will become in very truth the Temple of the Holy Ghost. Day by day matter is replaced by Spirit, the human by the divine; ultimately the change will be complete; God manifest in flesh will be his name.

      According to Cassandra Fairbanks, “Abramović is known for her often-gory art that confronts pain and ritual. Her first performance involved repeatedly, stabbing herself in her hands. The next performance featured her throwing her nails, toenails, and hair into a flaming five-point star — which she eventually jumped inside of, causing her to lose consciousness.”

      Abramović has also noted that her work is more than mere “art” but crosses into the occult. In a comment left at Reddit in answer to a question from someone asking what role the occult has in art, Abramović responds:

      Everything depends on which context you are doing what you are doing. If you are doing the occult magic in the context of art or in a gallery, then it is the art. If you are doing it in different context, in spiritual circles or private house or on TV shows, it is not art. The intention, the context for what is made, and where it is made defines what art is or not.

        [Hat-tip to Canon212: “Wikileaks: Cardboard Francis shows up as a funny joke at Satanic pedophile ‘pizza party’”]

        A cardboard cut-out of Francis shows up at John Podesta’s “pizza party”

        Chairman of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, John Podesta throws a “pizza party” which has a cardboard cut-out of Francis in attendance. Part of the WikiLeaks #PodestaEmails are the two photos attached to the email below which in part reads, “Attached are pictures that capture some of the spirit of the evening – at a couple of different levels.” Is this a cryptic reference to what happened at the party? Or is it alluding to steganography — hiding data in the photo images? One would think with Francis’ homosexual policy that he would gladly accept Podesta’s ideas for plotting a ‘Catholic Spring’. The photo with cardboard Francis shows very effectively how little respect Francis and his revolutionary papacy have with the Democrat Party in the United States of America. What else will turn up in the #PodestaEmails?

  5. Maybe the cardboard pontiff has Luciferian ritual significance as a mojo or voodoo doll. Occultists use images of people when they are casting hexing spells. Or perhaps they were just celebrating his progressive modernist agenda which anti-Catholic liberals invoke to provide religious support for their social justice policies. Whichever way, it seems sacrilegious for pro-abortion liberals to use an image of the pope.

  6. I’m playing Hillary backwards at 78, but she doesn’t sound any different.

    • P.S. In case you’re under 50, there used to be 78 RPM records (and for younger, records are vinyl disks played on a phonograph, normally 33 and 45 RPM). There were claims of Satanic lyrics on some records encoded so you’d need to play the record backwards. Then some comedy act had a line about playing “Black Sabbath” backwards at 78.

      Sorry. You’d just have to live through it. Man, I feel old sometimes.

  7. Trump may not be my cup of tea, but a priest claiming automatic mortal sin when a Catholic, in a sincere pious manner, chooses to cast their lot with Trump is making a reckless comment founded upon reckless thinking.
