Catholics for Romney Leadership Team Formed: Six Former Vatican Ambassadors Lead the Effort Comments

We are all called to advance the moral teachings of Christianity in the life of our country. Where the stakes are highest - in the defense of life, liberty, and human dignity - we have a duty to act that is greater and more urgent than allegiance to any political party.In the election of 2012, this conviction has united all of us - each a former ambassador of the United States to the Holy See - in support of Governor Mitt Romney's candidacy for ...

    What would you have Catholics do William? There's only 2 candidates for President. Obama is against everything the Church teaches. He said he didn't know when life began yet professes to be "christian." He supports embryoinc stem cell research, gay marriage, social justice, (socialism statism) redistribution of wealth. That's just the tip of the iceberg. He has attacked religious freedom with no apologies for it. His cadre of Democratic Mayors have threatened a legitimate business man for stating his religious beliefs, which just so happens to be one of the foundations of Judeo-Christian beliefs. I cannot fathom how anyone professing to be Catholic or christian can with good conscience vote for this President. The Black pastors that have finally steeped forward speak the truth about the man, they don't support him just because he happens to be black.

    The problem with this endorsement by the former ambassadors (Catholic or not) is that Mitt Romney is a Mormon. He is a member of a cult, the beliefs and practices of which are not consistent with catholic Christian principles. Are the ambassadors basing their endorsement purely on electability? If so, they are misguided. Their endorsement should not be construed as reflective of the Catholic Church. Remember that they were ambassadors to the Holy See, not ambassdors from the Holy See.

    In any event, must our choice devolve to the lesser of two evils? Must we choose between tweedle-dee and tweedle-dum? Ron Paul is the only candidate who has been consistent and forthright in presenting himself and his guiding principles and has done so for many years in government service. If Catholics would put their vote where their faith is, Ron Paul would be elected instead of the RINO compromise the ambassadors have endorsed.

    You may have misunderstood my remarks. Maybe Cardinal Muller can make my meaning more clear. This is a quote from Muller, the new head of the Congregation of Doctrine in Rome. He said in an interview, quoted in Aug 2, 2012 National Catholic Reporter:

    "Certainly a doctrinal confusion between Marxist auto-redemption and the salvation given by God has to be rejected. On the other hand, we have to sincerely ask ourselves: How can we talk about the love and mercy of God facing the suffering of so many people who don't have food, water and health care, who don't know how to offer a future to their own children, where human dignity is missing and where human rights are ignored by the powerful? ... If we consider ourselves as the family of God, then we can contribute to changing and improving these situations unworthy of the human person."

    What am I suppose to think as American of the six ambassadors to one of the last remaining absolute monarchs remaining in the world wants Americans to vote for?. I bet a photo of the six with the Pope wearing the Papal crown of the Papal States (well what's left of it) with his army the Swiss Guard would go over will well with Tea Party types in America!

    If we all come together and vote for Romney, he will surely win. Where can I get a tee shirt with Catholics for Romney!

    I am glad to see the church finally getting its act together. We still have a ways to go because more than half the Bishops are liberal leftist who are beholden to the Socialist Democrat Party. Bishop Blaire of Stockton, California is a prime example among many. I don't know what Obama and the party of death needs to do to convince many Catholics that this despot is our enemy. I hope we never see the day when our nation becomes Mexico in the 1920's.

    Romney wasn't my first choice in the primaries but I will definitely vote for him. Can you imagine what the United States and our lives will be like in four years if Obama is reelected? Imagine what other freedoms he'll take away from us and what more things he'll mess up if he has another four years without having to worry about reelection. He's liable to take away Presidential term limits. I think Romney deserves a chance. We need to Save America and the way Obama is going, we won't recognize it soon. We should at least give Romney a chance. If he doesn't work out, we don't have to reelect him. However, it can't get that much worse with Romney. Between Romney and Obama, I think Romney could possibly SAVE AMERICA. If you're still undecided, please pray about it.

    I encourage all of you that are planning to vote for Romny to get both sides of Romny and President Obama's understanding of the needs of the USA. Suggest you tune in to MSNBC, because if you are watching FOX News, you are getting a very slanted view.
