  • It'd be nice if our president was driven by grace every once and a while.

    In regards to being a responsible man, would it be interesting to learn, after six years of accumulating all the wisdom you could, that you had it right all alon

  • He also wouldn't hesitate to go to war with Iran for Israel's sake.

    It'd also be nice to have a president who wasn't a tool for the Jews and Israeli's for once.

    Exactly. Santorum is a stooge for Israel.That is my opinion of him. If I were American, I wouldn't be voting at all. Sod their system.

  • Not voting at all is a vote for Obama.  So I guess you want Obama again, I don't!

    I would rather risk it with his opponent whoever he might be.  Personally I am not happy with any of them, but I will vote against Obama.

  • While I don't believe there will be an actually perfect Catholic ruler till Christ returns in glory, and had some reservations about him at first, I've decided I'm fine with Santorum.

    Maybe that's why he wrote, in an op-ed,

    Quote
    Some say that this means we have to launch a military attack against Iran.  I don't believe that. I think most Iranian people want to be free of their evil regime, and millions of them have taken to the streets, in the face of security forces all too happy to kill them, to show their contempt for their leaders.  It's a revolutionary force, and we should support it.

    We defeated the Soviet Union without using military means.  We supported the Soviet dissidents and refuseniks, and the Soviet regime collapsed.  I believe we can do the same thing in Iran.


    This from the man who authored the Iran freedom and support Act when it was first unanimously opposed then soon after unanimously passed. He knows what he's talking about on national security and foreign policy and he has 8 years of experience on the armed services committee. Maybe a strong president may have prevented the situation from degenerating into what it has already. It may not even matter, because Iran is probably going to be attacked before November.
    "Never will anyone who says his Rosary every day become a formal heretic ... This is a statement I would sign in my blood." St. Montfort, Secret of the Rosary. I support the FSSP, the SSPX and other priests who work for the restoration of doctrinal orthodoxy and liturgical orthopraxis in the Church. I accept Vatican II if interpreted in the light of Tradition and canonisations as an infallible declaration that a person is in Heaven. Sedevacantism is schismatic and Ecclesiavacantism is heretical.

    How does Santorum know what "most" Iranians want? Who made him an authority of what is good for Iran and it's people? Why are we even to be involved in the middle of Persian politics, isn't that what got us into trouble in Tehran years ago with the Shah, Khomeini and the hostages and all that?

    Iran is not the former Soviet Union, communism days were numbered from the beginning, Iran is a theocracy with a fanatical Islamic support base that will not be easily manipulated from within and Amadinejad is not Saddam Hussein or even OBL, he has vast support from surrounding Shiite Muslims as well as a working relationship with the Russia and the Chinese, capitulating Iran will be a tall order.

    A strong president may have prevented the situation from what it is, but a stupid one that is more concerned about what's good for Israel than the United States will be a real disaster from which we might not recover.

    If Iran is indeed attacked before the election look for it to happen soon, Purim is just around the corner, the Jews have a thing for significant dates and festivals when it comes to warring against their enemies.

    Yeah, and of all the republican candidates I feel Santorum is best. He is Catholic, and I think he would be better suited for the job than Gingrich.

  • InfiniteFaith and Nishant2011, I disagree with you both. I was listening to a sermon from an FSSP priest online this morning (I have no access to a TLM), and he said that Santorum and Gingrich didn't take the Catholic stance on war. He stated that JPII and Benedict both condemned the wars with Iraq and other places. Then the priest said that Ron Paul is the only one with a Catholic stance on war.

    So Santorum and Gingrich may be Catholic, but their position on war sure isn't. If you want to vote for either one of them, go right ahead. I'm going to support the candidate who's stance on war and other issues is more Catholic than anyone else's, that candidate being Ron Paul.

    Ron Paul does not want to support Israel. If Israel were attacked then Ron Paul would do nothing. Is that what the Catholic stance on Israel is?

    You're putting words in Paul's mouth, he never said that. And the Catholics don't want anything to do with Israel. If you read the "protocols of the Zionist Jews" you would see why. In fact, let me give you that link to prove it...
