WASHINGTON (AP) Rick Santorum is endorsing his one-time bitter rival Mitt Romney in a late-night e-mail to his supporters.
Santorum on Monday urged his supporters to join him in working with the effective Republican nominee to deny President Barack Obama a second term.

And I also know that over the millenia, Christians have taken God's word, and used Jesus' Name to do things that having nothing to do with being a Christ-follower.
The "Fruit of the Spirit" as listed in Galatians 5: 22 are the following....LOVE, JOY, PEACE, PATIENCE, KINDNESS, GOODNESS, FAITHFULNESS, GENTLENESS, and SELF-CONTROL.
This passage of Scripture is not about berating and belittling everyone in your path, but controlling yourself because we belong to Jesus Christ. It's about ourselves, and crucifying our own sin nature.....not others.
I am measuring everything I see to God's Word, and Christ's teaching and example, and that is exactly why I am criticizing you and Elsie.
I am not 'personally attacking' anyone for exposing false teachings. If that's all that was going on here, I would be silent. I understand exactly what Mormonism is, and have for decades, and know its errors, but that, again, is not what I am criticizing.
If you don't understand, svcw, that you are only a sinner saved by grace, and not better than others who have not yet found and accepted the real, crucified, risen Lord, who is the ONLY Son of God, and who IS God, then I would urge you to spend some time in prayer about that.
Until then, I will ignore your not so subtle personal attacks on me, that I am not a Christian.
The more you accuse me, the worse you look.
Right. If that makes you feel better, svcw, go for it.
Again I ask: Why are people who are opposed to Romneys liberalism haters, trolls, BHO supporters.........(whatever todays word is).
Every conservative here is opposed to Romney's liberalism, but we don't all hate the man with a deep and blinding passion. It's impossible to tell a few of you (fortunately a minority) from the leftist trolls who have invaded this forum since Clinton's lackeys did it in the late 90's. They try to blend in (the brighter ones), and you make it very easy for them to blend with.
You have the freedom to risk another four years of Obama with your vote, if you want. I just don't think there are enough of you to make that happen.
Obama is going down in spite of you.
However, you are fitting the definition of a RomneyBot, MittBot (whatever the word today is), your rabid support for anyone not BHO is coloring you view of that liberal called Romney. Your adamant support for that liberal called Romney is starting to be suspicious.
Now, you're not just mistaken or confused. You are outright lying. There is not one post ever, since my sign on in 2001, where I have supported in any way, Mitt Romney, other than saying that since he is the only viable alternative, and that Obama is a hideously dangerous, anti-American Marxist, who MUST go.
I will ask you, assuming that you really are a believer (which I do), to stop lying. I've said it before, but I'll say it again here. You may be anonymous here because your name is unknown, but you are not unknown to a Holy God, and 'bearing false witness' is against HIS laws.
Don't do it again.
Hey, compadre, can we share a ride to Obomba headquarters? Dear Leader's giving a pay raise and Moochelle is holding a lunch for all of us slick trolls. We don't want to miss it!
(I've always wanted to ask you that. :)"
Well, it was hard. But quite simply: a painting of my philandering husband on the wall-----and darts. Lots and lots of darts.
You have obviously made peace with that fact, so stating it is not 'attacking' you.
Stop making things up, OK?
Really? If you are who you say you are and beleive what you wrote here, then you should be exposing mormonism not quasi defending it.
What you wrote is in opposition to mormonism, which is why it must be exposed.
Romney is a liberal, I will not vote for him. Romney is a mormon, he can not be separated from his beliefs. Romney is who he is because he practices mormonism, it makes him who he is. Unless you understand mormonism, it is not possible to understand him.
Romney is a liberal just like BHO, if that gets you all wired up to call me an BHO troll/supporter nothing I can do about it.
LOL! And a very LARGE target!
Where does this paranoia come from? I never called you a troll. I never called you a BHO supporter.
I have only stated the reality, that your refusal to vote for the only viable alternative, even though it may be what you have decided is best for you personally, will indeed enable the reelection of Obama.
As for the Mormonism, I have also never 'quasi' defended it. I know exactly what it is.
Either your imagination has run amok or you have no problem with lying, and I think this conversation must be over in either case.
So just stop with the false accusations. I'm going to work to get Obama out of office. And so are the vast majority of conservatives.
Live with it.
For those reading who may be unaware, a Temple recommend is a certificate filled out by a local Bishop and Stake President (The church is organized into Wards or Branches which are congregtions presided over by a Bishop or Branch President, and then Stakes which are groups of 8-10 Wards or Branches presided over by a Stake President).
The Bishops and Stake Presidents both interview anyone desiring to attend the temple to ask them if they are living according to the faith before going to patricipate in the teachings and ordinances there. Both have to sign. Without such a recommend, signed by both, a member may not attend.
So, Elsie, why are you so concerned with whether I have a temple recommend or not? What business is it of yours? Most people consider it a private matter between them and God.
As it is, I am more than willing to let you know that, yes, I do have an active Temple Recommend which I use.
I know this is bound to lead to more questions or accusations from you or others...none of which I believe are for the purposes of you actually wanting to know what we believe or why...instead, they are clearly meant to try and catch me or some other LDS member in their words, or in some trap set up by which you can then "expose" us for some kind of heretics in your view.
I will not play that game, other than to say that your methods and tone sound a whole lot like the methods and tone of the Saducees and Pharisees of old. They felt they were so secure in their absolute knowledge of the law of Moses and its precepts, that they never learned that it was actually a pre-cursor and preparatory doctrine for Christ and His atonement, mercy, and love. Instead, they were bent on attacking and exposing herectics so they could exercise their power over them, which had nothing to do with mercy, compassion or love of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Have a good day, Elsie...I hope you are blessed with the Peace of Christ, which passeth all understanding. I am so grateful for that Peace and Spirit in my life and the comfort it imparts no matter what circumstances we face in our daily walk.
LOL, he certainly was.
I added Santorum's and have included quotes by each of them regarding Romney.
From the ayttitudes of some here, I know that now makes all of these people somehow RINOs and traitors...which of course is ludicrous because nothing could be futher from the truth.
Clearly, they are doing what they have to do to try and save the Republic which is abjectly threatend by Obama who is an immediate clear and present danger to our liberty.
Anyhow, here it is:
Some names there are givens, but many of them are impressive leaders in the conservative, and even Tea Party movement.
Good for you. I am going to work to get liberals out of office, whether they are called Republicans or democrats.
A new sign on who exhibits irrational hatred for Romney is likely an Obama troll.
I worked for a Conservative “group” years ago and I infiltrated a radical Marxist group. I know how to “Troll” and can recognize a Troll.
Hey Catherine, this is NOT a good way to behave if you're not a troll.
If you seriously think the Obama is not interested in bringing conservative forums such as FR down, and is not involved in infiltrating them/us, then you either are hopelessly naive, or trying to mock those of us who know the methods of the most unethical administration in the history of this Republic and actually are a troll.
In either case, you lose a point with this post, and make me think my original instinct was correct.
Perfectly done and said, ohioWfan!
Perfectly done and said, ohioWfan!
And in the mean time, I'm sure you'll continue to smear and lie about solid conservatives without even a twinge of conscience.
btw, last point....if you don't even know enough Scripture to know about the Fruit of the Spirit in Galatians, then how can you tell who's a false prophet and who's not? (If Elsie were, would you know?......my guess, he's not, but would you even know??)
What I would recommend to you is that you stop the lying, and concentrate on finding truely liberal Republicans to get out of office and replace with conservatives. Give money to Tea Party/Conservative candidates across the country who will be running against liberals (Give to JOSH MANDEL here in Ohio, who is currently ahead of Sherrod Brown, the most liberal Senator in Washington.....I'm going to be working for him).
IOW, ACT like a conservative, not just a Romney hater. Obama hates Romney as much as you do. For different reasons, but it's the same emotion.
Channel that emotional overload into positive action FOR conservatism, and you'll begin to make a difference.
As it stands, you just blend in with trolls.....
Wow. You posted this twice. Cool! ;*)
