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 ...

    This site should be renamed "GOP Catholics." Both parties severely violate Catholic morals and teachings, and therefore we should be associated with NEITHER party. It's sad to see this site being used as a specific pro-Republican tool.

    Nonetheless, I offer this in all charity and Christian love.

    While all of that may be true (I don't know enough to say if it is or isn't, so for now I'll take you at your word), we -know- beyond any doubt that Obama will continue along the path he has already laid out; a path filled with dead children and religious persecution. Romney, on the other hand, is a wild card. He is stating that he will stand on the basic foundation of Christian faith and lead the country back towards Christian ideals.

    For that reason alone I believe that we have an obligation to vote for him. If he fails to live up to those promises then that'll be between him and God, but for now he is, sadly, the only hope we have of retaining our religious freedoms.

    I am also a fairly hard-line conservative, like yourself. I do not like what Romney has done in the past, I do not fully trust him, and I do not want to vote for him; but I will not and cannot support the man who has already done so much against the Church and its faithful.

    I can not bring myself to vote for him. For one thing, I consider him to be a liberal, not a conservative and I will only vote for conservatives. Second, I view Romney as little more than an Obama clone. He criticized Obamacare but defends Romneycare. Some of the people who helped Romney create Romneycare helped Obama create Obamacare, and when you point this out to Romney he goes ballistic. Obama even admits that his Obamacare was based on Romneycare. In effect, Romney created Obamacare and so I do not believe him when he said that one of the first things he'll do when he takes office is to get rid of Obamacare. He will not get rid of his own creation. I also do not believe that much will change if Romney is elected. I believe that, though he may make some minor changes, he will pretty much continue Obama's policies. The choice we have this year is Obama or his clone and I can't bring myself to vote for either. Whomever wins, America loses.

    He really needs a board, although it will have hard times giving advice. The man was a walking catastroph in his European tour.
