Real Catholic v Heretical, Faux "Catholyc" for VP Position

As everyone probaly knows by now, Paul Ryan from Wisconsin's 1st Congressional District has been selected by Mitt Romney as His running mate.
Cong. Paul Ryan

Naturally, the attacks from the left have begun, especially from those on the radical left who oppose his attempts to rein in the run away budget during his time in Congress as head of the House Budget Committee. He stands in stark contrast with the current Veep, Joe Biden. 

V.P. Joe Biden

Both of them were baptised Catholic, but there the difference ends. Ryan is faithful to authentic Catholic teaching, while Biden isn't
Biden supports ObamCare, gay marriage, abortion & the Obama administrations attack on the Catholic Church & freedom of religion in general.
Biden was rebuked by his own Bishop as well as many others for his stand on abortion & his misstating Catholic teachings.
Meanwhile, the press is claiming that the Catholic Bishops have attacked Ryan's budget proposal. The truth is something totally different.
Yes, Bishop Stephen E. Blaire of Stockton, California, chairmen of the Committees on Domestic Justice and Human Development did issue a statement listing concerns, but it was hardly blistering. & it wasn't totally accuurate either. Unless you are a part of the radical left that only likes what the Bishops say when they can twist it to their agenda to promote the nanny state controling our very lives. Remember, these same leftists opposed the Bishops call for the Fortnight for Freedom. (The link is just 1 example.) & given the scandals coming out of the USCCB lately, the slant in the statement reflects the political leanings of those running things as showed by what they allowed CCHD & CRS to do.
On the other hand, the 1 bishop who does have the authority to judge Ryan's actions, Bishop Morlino of Madison, has defended Ryan's actions. Again, it is interesting how the left tries to promote freedom of conscience when they oppose teachings that leave no room for prudential judgment & attack it when someone applies it authentically & is supported by his bishop for doing so,
Paul Ryan also supports religious freedom , & the Catholic Church's teachings on gay marriage & abortion.
It is clear to me that Romney's choice makes it clear which side he comes down on. & it is on the side of the Catholic Church. You can be sure the attacks from the left & their propaganda arm, the Main Stream Media, will continue. But you can also be sure that it isn't because Paul Ryan is a bad Catholic, but because he is a real Catholic, unlike Biden.

    Do you know Ryan's rating with pro-life groups?

    In answer to your question I think it best to share what Pro-Life Wisconsin said in their Monday update today:

    Pro-Life Wisconsin applauds Ryan VP pick
    Pro-Life Wisconsin applauds the selection of U.S. Representative Paul Ryan as Mitt Romney’s vice presidential running mate. Paul Ryan is 100% pro-life and holds deep convictions about the sacredness of human life and the need for its legal protection. We are excited about and encouraged by his candidacy!

    As a United States Representative, Paul Ryan has been a long-time co-sponsor of federal legislation establishing legal personhood for the preborn child. Most recently he has signed on to 2011 House Resolution (HR) 212, the Sanctity of Human Life Act. This legislation would establish personhood from the moment of conception in order to extend the equal protection and due process rights of our constitution to all human beings from the beginning of their lives.

    A true friend of the local pro-life community, Representative Ryan has been an active participant with Pro-Life Wisconsin’s Rock County affiliate.

    I think that answers the question.
