On March 7, the Romney campaign told reporters that it would take an “act of God” for Mitt Romney not to be the Republican Party’s nominee. We Santorum supporters are counting on that. Because Romney claims his candidacy is ordained by God, we have the right to offer the contrary view on that.
Earlier today, I wrote that Rick Santorum Must Win for the sake of freedom in America, and especially the FIRST Amendment freedom of conscience, now under attack. I mentioned that at least two of Mitt Romney’s donors, through his Super PAC, have been on the opposite side of people of faith in this country, including one donor who gave $27 million to a company that engages in embryonic stem cell research and another who was an important backer of same-sex marriage in New York. These are the people funding this:
All told, the former Massachusetts governor and his allies have spent $2.26 million on television commercials in Illinois, with more than $1.7 million of that coming from the Restore Our Future super PAC.
Romney’s Super PAC has spent over $15 million in negative attack ads against the champion of life, marriage and freedom: Rick Santorum. The spending against him in Illinois will be in addition to that amount.
In Illinois, same-sex civil union law has forced the Catholic Church out of adoption services. The reason is that same-sex unions are inherently an attack on the religious freedom of the Church. Our conscience prohibits us from placing children with same-sex couples. Failure to respect that is failure to respect our right of free conscience.
Visit MassResistance.org to see how Mitt Romney helped bring same-sex marriage to Massachusetts. Visit Boston Catholic Insider to see how Mitt Romney was highly instrumental in forcing Catholic hospitals in Massachusetts to dispense abortifacients. In Illinois, Cardinal George is the Archbishop of Chicago and he has very rightly stated that if the federal mandate is not rescinded, there will be no Catholic hospitals in two years.
Mitt Romney has not been on the side of God as Governor of Massachusetts. He’s been on the opposing side. He says it will take an “act of God” for him not to be the nominee. God isn’t the one running ads attacking Rick Santorum for Mitt Romney, though. Others are behind those ads, and it’s not God.
Let us pray for an act of God to prevent Mitt Romney from winning Illinois, and to prevent him from becoming the nominee of the Republican Party.
