who supports abortion, Donovan will most likely coast to victory in the special election next week. Where this race gets interesting is in the 58 year old Donovan's announcement that he is expecting a bastard child (bastard, noun, a person born of unmarried parents; an illegitimate child) with his 44 year old, divorced concubine (concubine, noun, 1. a woman who cohabits with a man to whom she is not legally married). Donovan, a baptized Catholic whose working-class parents sacrificed to send him to Farrell High School, is now going about flaunting his sinful relationship and the child that, undoubtedly, they never planned to have. As if Donovan's disrespect and disregard for the Faith and for Marriage wasn't made manifest enough by his immoral lifestyle, he can be seen in this Facebook photo mocking sacramental Marriage by playing the part of officiant at the wedding of some friend or relative of his concubine's.
Although Donovan is unique, for a man of his age, in having such a young and attractive concubine and actually having a baby with her, his lifestyle is actually pretty common now for pseudo-Catholic Staten Islanders in their 40s, 50s and 60s. It is incredible to see these older people who were raised in strong Catholic families, grew up in a strong Catholic environment and educated in good Catholic schools putting away their spouses and shacking up with their lovers, as if they had never known the Faith or heard of anything called morality. And what's worse is that everyone here treats their behavior as if were perfectly normal and acceptable. It's one thing for twenty-somethings to be doing this, having been marinated their entire lives in degenerate media, broken homes, and public schools, but to see our elders- who had first hand experience of a better world- living like this is pathetic and disappointing. Sorry- Donovan is a dishonorable and disgraceful libertine who is living in adultery with a concubine who just happens to be another man's wife. St. John the Baptist and St. Thomas More suffered martyrdom for saying such things to kings. This lawyer, Donovan, needs to know that if even royalty are subject to the laws of God, then so are local politicians. He doesn't get my vote or my respect.
