Newt Gingrich to restore faith in presidency with faith in God Comments

As voters scrutinize Newt Gingrich they are examining the faith of a man who has like many others, had his ups and downs. A convert to Catholicism, Gingrich's views have wide appeal to Catholics, and as he articulates his beliefs, many are taking a new found interest in him. Continue Reading

    Fred, I think you'll see that government spending has a direct correlation to lobbying dollars and the growth of special interest groups. Money is the real party they belong to. Whoever get's elected will be beholden to whomever paid for them to be there, just like everyone else.

    If we are talking about consistency, high moral character, ethics, etc. Then look no further than Ron Paul. Do your own digging through articles and YouTube videos. He speaks the truth about the atrocities of this political system that people like newt abuse for their own personal gain. Do the research before you judge. :) PEACE.

    It will be refreshing to have a Catholic Man in the White House who doesn't apologize for his faith. As we speak, he is out there proclaiming his belief in God and Jesus Christ. He is boldly putting it out there proudly. I love this guy.

    mormons don't believe Catholics are real Christians why else would they baptize into the LDS church by proxy dead Popes ,Saints . countless lay people of our Faith and other great Catholics of world history like Columbus and that goes for Protestants too! Did you notice that none of the mormons below mention the book of mormon it's goofy take on pre- Colombian history of America, LDS founder Joeseth Smith's hat 'seer-stones ,gold tablets I wonder why?

    Phil, you might wish to read the following: http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/behind-romneys-change-of-heart-on-abortion/2011/11/29/gIQAi1CFAO_story.html

    Romney changed his mind on the issue of abortion. Is that bad? Some folks would call that "Repentance." I would rather have someone in office who has the decency and common sense to make a change for the better, than to have an ideologue who won't make a change at all. I am aware of the notion that the tenets of a church should be avoided in politics, but if you compare the LDS position and the Catholic one, they match up fairly well!

    Think about it. Do you want someone to win against the current President? Who do you want to make a choice for new Justices of the Supreme Court, where we have a chance, after all, to overturn Roe? Obama won't be changing his mind on the issue.

    A Morman for President? NO PROBLEM!!!!!
    Mitt for Pres......? BIG BIG BIG PROBLEM!!!!!!
    What kind of family values are pro-abortion?
    KILL the Family? It was politically the only way he could be governor of Taxachusettes, BUT that tells me he will say anything to get elected.
    Abortion is my litmus test and he failed. Romney-care, made the prolife citizens of Taxachussets pay for abortions............Moms paid.$50 dollars to kill their baby. The tax payers paid the rest. SICK SICK and SICK. I haven't heard remorse from Romney for his part in the murder of those babies. He helped to kill them.

    You are so right Dangler! I have followed his career since the 70's or 80's and yes he was able to fulfill his contract with America with the exception of one or two of those promises but some thing went terrible wrong along the way. The GOP joined the progressive democrats in run away spending over those next number os years leading up to those years when they gained control of the congress at which time they was as guilty as the progressive Democrats in spending money at an never ending increase each year in the amount of the federal budget. One of the reasons why the control of congress was once again taken by the progressive Democrats in 2010 who really increased the outgo of tax payers dollars to special interest groups who chose to support the politicians. Integrity counts!

    Any religion...or person for that matter, that would choose Newt Gingrich as its standard bearer....I would have grave reservations about their commitment to peace honesty and compassion.

    We are not a theocracy. We aren't electing the pope in chief but a President. And today we need a person who has impeccable character. We all know that to a certain extent, many of the problems our world faces is due to the break down of the family. Both Romney and Santorum have very compelling family stories to tell. And I think when it comes to teaching family values etc, I think we Catholics could take some lessons from the mormons in that regard. I guess time will tell if the American people like the proposed policies of a Gingrich administration. And while we know that God has forgiven him and we must as well, that does not necessarily mean that he automatically get's our vote for public office again. Sometimes your prior bad acts preclude you from that. But now that he is the front runner, his actions in office and out of office will be examined under the microscope and it will give us additional information to make our decisions upon. I don't like any of the candidates personally, but if I had to pick today, I think I would prefer Romney. I think he's enough of outsider to both movements (conservative and liberal) and may be able to get some things done. Just not sure he can survive the flipflopping charge as our electorate has no forgiveness for changing your mind. Could be a problem for Newt as well.

    Mormons do not believe in the doctrine of the Holy Trinity, ergo they are not Christian. At best they are blind polytheists. There is no salvation outside of the Catholic Church, the bride of our Lord. In these last days, sadly, few will be saved even among those who claim to be Catholic, as there are goats and wolves among the lambs. Do not mock God, as he is just as well as merciful.
