Time for a Catholic President

Updated on January 3, 2012

Place life first and the rest will follow

As a new presidential election looms in the shadows, claims of conservatism appear to grow all the louder.

Newt Gingrich, who in 2011 became the recipient of a Limbaugh tongue-lashing for claiming, "Reagan conservatism is dead" on Meet the Press, for instance, now claims: "Reagan Had the Recipe for Success. Let's Follow It."

Mitt Romney, whose health care plan as Governor of Boston included the mandate, everyone must purchase healthcare insurance, now says he will repeal obamacare, which carries the same mandate.

Ironically enough, Romney who in 2002 stated: "I will preserve and protect a woman's right to choose," has led the polls from the virtual beginning, of this presidential campaign term.

Gingrich too has had his name bandied about the conservative arena, in spite of his support for issues such as, the global warming hoax,

Even pizza guru, Herman Cain, whose 9, 9, 9 measure might have ultimately served as his demise, had his 15 minutes of presidential campaign-fame.

Yet, Rick Santorum, a true conservative, from a Catholic standpoint, has remained in the back ground - until now, that is.

The former Pennsylvania senator, appears to be surging in Iowa caucus polls and his pro-life message seems to be picking up steam.

Choking back tears, the pro-life Senator, recounted his and his wives decision to bring home their child, Gabriel, who died hours after he had been born.

Commenting on criticism the decision had received by FOX correspondent, Alan Colmes, Santorum stated:

"To some who don't recognize the dignity of all human life, who see it as a blob of tissue ... this is somehow weird, recognizing the humanity of your son. Somehow weird, somehow odd and should be subject to ridicule."

This is the true face of conservatism. The economy, world peace and every other issue will fall neatly into place when the dignity of life and the family are placed first.

For he who upholds the dignity of life preserves the economy by allowing the human person to flourish within a society. An economy cannot grow without a flourishing economy of human life, first.

He who upholds the dignity of life at conception will be less likely to end life in a cold hospital room, a dank prison cell, or a distant battlefield.

Is it time for a Catholic President? A devout Catholic, Senator Santorum stands firm on Catholic principles that can better our American society. The time is ripe for such a President.

God bless.

      Perhaps, but Rick Santorum is a hard sell to the general electorate. Nice article, Cred2

      I believe that it is more important, no most important that the next P.O.T.U.S. be a devoutly firmly anchored CHRISTIAN, denomination aside. The USA was founded on Christian beliefs and Christian values, but in today's world it is the politician who can pour into the election the most financially who will win. The US. People have misplaced their allegiance placing it into the almighty dollar over the almighty God, the God of their ancestors.
