Republican VP candidate Ryan speaks about prayer life, religious freedom

Catholic World News - November 06, 2012

At an election-eve campaign stop in Ohio on November 5, Republican vice-presidential nominee Paul Ryan disclosed that he always keeps a Rosary in his pocket, prays daily, and is sustained by his Catholic faith.

Ryan reminded the Ohio crowd that Catholic bishops have sued the Obama administration to stop enforcement of the mandate for contraceptive coverage in health-insurance programs. “We should not have to sue our own government to keep our constitutionally guaranteed freedoms,” Ryan said.

    Paul Ryan seems like a very nice man, who I hope will go far in politics. He understands that big government is not the solution to poverty, or any of our country's problems for that matter. In fact, it is a problem. I like how he is open about his faith and not embarrassed by it. He stands for life and for the family. I would feel secure if he were some day to lead our country.
