The Republican presidential field has produced a lot of babies. There is Mitt Romney, father of five sons. Ron Paul, an obstetrician by training, is also a father of five, and his campaign Web site credits him with bringing 4,000 babies into the world. Newt Gingrich and the recent dropout Rick Perry have only two children each, but Rick Santorum, who has said contraception is â€śnot O.K.,â€ť has seven children, and so does another former candidate, Jon M. Huntsman Jr.
And so far as I can tell, evangelical Christians in South Carolina, who will most likely constitute a majority of voters in Saturdayâ€™s primary, donâ€™t think this ĂĽber-fertility is at all strange. Support for Mr. Santorum may show that Protestants are no longer as troubled by the Roman Catholic objection to birth control....

Why do you refer to Roman Catholicism as Popery? And Roman Catholicism is in deed different then Mormonism because Roman Catholicism has always believed in and worshipped the biblical and historical Jesus whereas Mormonism has never believed in and worshipped the biblical and historical Jesus but has believed in and worshipped a False jesus.
I will be unable to support Santorum as he said the killing of a nuclear scientist in Iraq as a 'wonderful thing' and he would be willing to send troops back to Iraq. We should have never gone there in the first place. I will NOT support a war-mongering president!!!

I thought that KM could use a few quotations. However, a serial polygamist such as Mr. Gingrich is someone I would vote for. Some people call Pres. Obama a Muslim, but as Mr. Gingrich that has had three wives.
I could not agree more with the comment about withholding one's vote rather than voting for the best or the lesser of two evils. I will probably not be voting for that very reason, and I suspect that will become the norm for me in the future.
mr. santorum is to be commended on his stand against birth control. however he can not be seen to respect life while in a warmongering spirit calls for more carnage and blood shed across the globe. that is "not ok" to quote mr. santorum. apart from that i would like us all to remember that mr. santorum is a catholic and follows popery which can be seen as no different (and in many ways worse) than the evil religion of mr. romney who i might add is also to be commended for his regection of bc. i would remind us all that true muslims also do not practice bc. lets be fair. we cannot vote for immoral people who reject Christ, rather through popery or mormonism, ect. i most certianly hope neither mr. santorum, romney or gingrich gets the nomination. maybe dr. paul is a freemason. i dont know for sure (i cant vote for a freemason either), but at least he is not for more wars. lets have mercy and vote for peace not war. and if you think none are worthy of the vote then do the right thing and dont vote. its never wrong to withhold your vote then there is no worthy option. do not vote for the best of two evils. may God richly bless.
