Guest Opinion: A New Campaign Low. Presidential Character and the Lena Dunham Advertisement Comments

A man's character is the sum of his actions over time, so you intrinsically know a person of good character when you encounter one. Who could have had any doubt about Bl. Mother Theresa's character?

    Articles like this are simply a transparent attempt to use a religious position to promote a political position.

    We get it. You're a Republican -- and, undoubtedly, fully accepting of the Romney/Ryan budget plan that has been termed "immoral" by Church leaders.

    I only saw this article because it came up through google news. But why do religious people have such a hard time accepting that others who don't share their religious beliefs don't really care what your opinion of sex is. If your religion guides you to a certain personal stance, then good for you, but please quit worrying about the morality of those that enjoy sex for pleasure, are homosexual or aren't interested in having sex strictly to procreate. Freedom from religion is just as important as freedom of religion.

    Give me a break! My daughter attended an all girls Catholic school and she would come home and tell me of young ladies from Catholic homes who were drug users, pregnant, used birth control and certainly not good examples of what their religion taught. Until you get your priests in order, don't judge anyone else.

    " Man has free will, a gift from God"
    If God gives us a choice, who are you to take it from us?
    You do not follow his will.
    You are not like Christ.
    You are not Christian.

    One would have to wonder why a truly religious person would vote for a person who would approve that ad.

    But then, by their fruits, you shall know them.
