…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.
