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.
