Not long ago, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY 14 – aka AOC), said that a statue in the US Capitol of St. Damien of Molokai, was part of a “white supremecist culture”.
What a foolishly ignorant thing to say. AOC didn’t have the slightest clue about the person of St. Damien or the person who made the statue. At least I hope she just stuffed her foot in her mouth out of sheer ignorance. If she really did have the slightest clue that would be worse.
After pro-abort AOC’s idiotic remarks Fishwrap had a longing puff piece about her, dreaming about the day when the Church will be just like her. “AOC is the future of the Catholic Church“!
She also dislikes St. Junipero Serra, which suggests that she doesn’t know anything about him, either.
Today Chad Pecknold has a piece at First Things about St. Damien. HERE It is worth your time.
I think that everyone who happens to run into AOC in person should simply say to her first off, “St. Damien of Molokai sends his best regards!”
Meanwhile, please, NY-14, I implore you. Vote for an expired Metro card before of this one!
