Scott P. Richert is hopeful… January 26, 2012

…about the prolife movement, because it appears we are finally learning that our hope is in changing hearts, not in power politics among leaders who don’t care about the unborn.

I agree with Richert. There’s a lot of hope–just not in princes. But in God? Gobs!

    Spot on! The GOP is not the POG [party of God] and obviously neither are the DEMs. The GOP is the party of Mammon with their golden bull on Wall St & the Dems are the party of Sodom & Gomorrah.

    Catholics can work with members of either party but should have no permanent alliances. Their goals are not our goals. If our goals do align it is temporary & likely by accident.

    So in practical terms, paint for me an image of what that would look like. How would abortion end on a national/world scale without a politcal solution? I am not saying it couldn’t happen. I am just curious how you visualize it.

  • “[Santorum] endorsed the ardently pro-abortion Arlen Specter in the Republican primary over a pro-life opponent, because Specter, like Santorum, supported the war in Iraq.”

    As is often the case when people make sweeping statements about others’ motivations, there’s a more complex explanation possible. It could have been a tactical decision: he thought Specter was more likely to win the general election, and Specter at least would not block Bush’s Supreme Court nominees.
