Read Donald Trump’s quote above.
Take a minute to dwell on the utter shallowness of his philosophy.
His self-worth is predicated on the looks of the woman dangling from his arm.
The worth of a woman, too, is dependent on the way she looks according to Trumpian wisdom.
And yet to this Catholic conservative, character is defined by the inner person, not mere outward appearances.
Mother Teresa of Calcutta wasn’t exactly a looker, and yet so many who came in contact with her were dazzled by her beauty, because beauty is animated by love, not facial features or a big bosom.
Beauty is enhanced by virtues, such as chastity, temperance, charity, diligence, patience, kindness, and humility. And yet, based on Mr. Trump’s words and deeds, the Donald seems to have little patience for chastity, kindness, humility … or for that matter, patience.
This blog acknowledges Mr. Trump’s accomplishments in the realm of business. But a man who displays such overt shallowness as displayed in the meme above is the next-to-last person for whom I would consider voting.
