the line of the night...

By Diogenes (articles ) | May 04, 2007

... from the Republican presidential debate:

MR. MATTHEWS: Governor Romney, what do you say to Roman Catholic bishops who would deny communion to elected officials who support abortion rights?

MR. ROMNEY: I don’t say anything to Roman Catholic bishops. They can do whatever the heck they want.

Right answer, Mitt; right answer.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Chris Matthews proved himself to be lighter than air. He is a "Catholic" who is pro abortion! The question to Mr. Matthews is; "Do you receive Holy Communion or has your bishop denied YOU". Unfortunately the new bishop in DC wants to "teach" while millions of innocent babies are slaughtered!

    I pray that a pro-life Democrat will run!

    Don't forget about the Catholic convert Sen. Sam Brownback. It is hard to say that we do not have a choice in candidates this year with him in the field.

    As Mark Steyn said: "How come the Mormon candidate is the only one with one wife?"

    Wish Mitt would have told Pro-Abort Catholic Chris Mathews that he is the one that should answer that question. The Hardball fellow was the wrong person to working the Republcan debate. Wonder if Archbishop Burke might want to have a HARBALL Heart to Heart with Mr. Mathews.
