Posted on 06/15/2012 5:37:05 PM PDT by SoFloFreeper
Mitt Romney today announced the support of five former U.S. Ambassadors to the Holy See. The Ambassadors wrote the following letter in support of Mitt Romney:
We the undersigned former U.S. Ambassadors to the Holy See...are united in our wholehearted support for the candidacy of Mitt Romney for the Presidency of the United States because of his commitment to and support of the values that we feel are critical in a national leader...We also know that Mitt Romney is a staunch defender of the principle that every human being should be welcomed in life and protected by law from conception to natural death.
Thomas Patrick Melady (U.S. Ambassador to the Holy See 1989-1993)
Raymond L. Flynn (U.S. Ambassador to the Holy See 1993-1997)
James Nicholson (U.S. Ambassador to the Holy See 2001-2005)
Francis Rooney (U.S. Ambassador to the Holy See 2005-2008)
Mary Ann Glendon (U.S. Ambassador to the Holy See 2008-2009)

As a Catholic I can tell you there are few things I trust less than American Catholics in government.
Proof of the loss of faith in these times. You cannot
vote for a pro-abort. Romney praised his own mother
for supporting the abortion cause!! His own actions, abortion
is in Romney Care.
All Romney’s talk, change of view is a crock. Until he
shows by his actions, then, I will believe he has changed.
Voting for a pro-abort is a mortal sin on your soul.
Well, if I had to name the people that I trust more in government nowadays I would start with Scalia, Thomas, Alito...
that is as expected — the best and the worst.
I'm impressed that you claim the right to sit in judgment of what will likely be about half the nations voters. You certainly exceed the narcissism of Obama.
Mary Ann Glendon is pro-life.
Mary Ann Glendon is the best of all. Refused to attend the Notre Dame graduation in 2009, where she was to be awarded their "Laetare" medal (whiche she declined), because she refused to be on the same platform as Obama.
She's a very distinguished law professor at Harvard. No don't hold Harvard against her, either. She's one of the top lawyers who's bringing the 43 lawsuits against Obamacare/HHS. She's been the faculty advisor to the Student Prolife group at Harvard for decades. She is tough, principled, and smart as they come.
“I’m impressed that you claim the right to sit in JUDGMENT of what will likely be about half the nations voters. You certainly exceed the narcissism of Obama.”

There is NO choice this election or a lessor of two evils.
BHO and Romney have been involved in the legislation of abortion.
Pray for a miracle, that is what it is going to take.
Who is judging friend? An excuse. God has revealed it. You cooperate with evil by voting for a pro-abort, no matter their level of government. Don’t do it, it is a mortal sin.
God bless you,
#2 - of the Cardinal virtues of Secularism
Pluralism (a relativistic attitude toward truth, religion and morals)
Tolerance (a non-judgmental approach to contrary opinions and lifestyles)
Equality (giving equal value to any individual or cultural differences)
Freedom (emphasis on individual autonomy in moral decision making)
Please don’t misunderstand. Catholics commit mortal sin when they support politicians who support abortion, same sex unions, et cetera. Willard is someone we cannot vote for. This is in addition to all the rest of who and what he is. I cannot denigrate the people mentioned who have endorsed him, but I cannot, and will not, vote for him. Not a case of the lesser of two evils, since no good can come from an evil act. And for a Catholic, because of his active support for abortion, even dismissing anything else, voting for Willard is literally an evil act, and one may not be able present oneself for Holy Communion without having first availed oneself of the Sacrament of Confession.
So you believe these Catholics are lying or are deceived?
And you believe Mitt has not changed his heart and mind on abortion?
I would certainly confirm the pro-life, Catholic orthodoxy of Mary Ann Glendon.
Mitt Romney has been telling pro-life organizations recently that he supports their positions. No doubt he or his handlers gave the same assurances to these former Ambassadors to the Vatican.
The only problem is, Romney never hesitates to lie about his beliefs. And his record as a politician is pro-abortion. In fact, he was the first politician to sign off on tax-payer funded abortions, just as he was the first to sign off on gay marriage.
I think Mary Ann Glendon is simply taking his assurances at face value. But can he be trusted to keep his word? The record suggests not.
“So you believe these Catholics are lying or are deceived?
And you believe Mitt has not changed his heart and mind on abortion?”

I notice the difference in tone of the two questions.
Catholics are lying or are deceived. “Mitt” only has to say
I’ve changed again on abortion with no proof of a change of heart since his actions in Massachusetts.
I think Obama can be trusted to continue to work against restrictions on abortion from conception through birth.
I notice there has not been an answer to the questions.
Better the liar who claims repentance than the liar who doesn’t.
yeah, i would just like an answer. :)
While those five former ambassadors may be personally pro-life and even somewhat accomplished as pro-lifers, ANYONE who bel;ieves the steady stream of Romney lies does so at the peril of his/her reputation. See Cicero's #13 which is right on target. Also, you know whenever Romney lies. His lips move.
Myth CLAIMS to have become pro-life in 2005 but included abortion-on-demand for a mere $50 for all Taxachusetts babykillers the NEXT year (2006) AND put Planned Barrenhood on the board of Romneycare to protect their free-wheeling babykilling. Puhleeze!!!
THEREFORE, to the two questions posed:
1. I believe the five former ambassadors are deceived and that there is insufficient evidence to prove that any of them are lying. Also, they are, at least, quite naive if they think they can believe Myth on ANY SOCIAL ISSUE. He IS a sociopathic liar who changes his story as easily as Madonna Louise Ciccone changes "partners."
2. I believe that Myth Romney has NOT changed his mind and heart on this issue. He has changed from what he perceived to be a pro-abort Taxachusetts constituency to a concededly pro-life national constituency. If he thought Americans loved the Red Chinese, Myth Romney would memorize Das Kapital and The Communist Manifesto in Mandarin and recite both on request, claiming to be a true believer in both.
“I notice there has not been an answer to the questions.”

Why would I answer the negative question about Catholics?
I answered your second flowery question about Romney.
