dc.description.abstractScholars have noted shared priorities and organizational ties between American Catholic leadership and the Republican Party arising since the 1970s and continuing today. Does American Catholic leadership withhold clear criticism of Republican President Trump for fear of alienating allies in a way they did not for Democratic President Obama? To answer this question, we engage in content analysis of columns written by bishops to their local dioceses (local level) and U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ news releases (national level). We find that American Catholic leadership avoids criticizing Trump by name in a way that they did not for Obama and that this pattern exists only at the national level. We shed light on shared priorities between Catholic leaders and the Republican Party at the national level and demonstrate how this is facilitated through sex and gender issues and is challenged by immigration politics under President Trump.|Keywords: American Catholic bishops, politics, Republican Party, discourse, criticismen_US
