By Trent Horn, Catholic Answers - Finally, remind the person that tolerance is a two-way street. Just as you would not pressure him to genuflect before a tabernacle or to profess a Catholic dogma that he doesn’t hold, he should not pressure you to accept one of his personal beliefs that contradict your understanding of reality.

It would make a vote for Trump in 2020 almost irresistible to Never Trumpers whose primary concern with Trump was moral-cultural.

It is a strange starvation to be sure, for it is largely self-inflicted. Further, it seems to be at an advanced stage.
