Santorum v. Obama, a metaphysical war of Good versus Evil

February 8, AD 2012 6 Comments

One man actively seeks to undermine religious rights and freedom and is attempting to replace them with government rights and mandates.   The other man wants to promote religious freedom, promote the moral and even economic benefits of marriage and traditional families.   What we have is one candidate promoting vice, while the other promotes virtue.

Santorum wins big!   Despite what the “mainstream” expected Santorum wins Colorado, Minnesota and Missouri

Yesterday, before any news of primary results was being reported, I spoke with my friend Brian about the presidential race.    Brian echoed what so many others have been saying in the mainstream media, essentially that “Santorum is a nice guy, I would vote for him in a second, but he doesn’t have any chance at being the nominee”.      I replied “Brian, never say never!”

So when I heard the news that Santorum won Missouri, Minnesota, and was doing really well in Colorado, I couldn’t help but to smile.    Several months ago I said the following little prayer;

“Dear God, with you all things are possible, if it is your Will that Santorum should win that it will be done”

Not that God is sitting on the edge of his seat observing the United States political election, but after hearing so many say that Santorum has no shot, I felt compelled to stop worrying, but instead to give it to the Lord.

A couple weeks ago I was speaking to another friend.   He and I both agreed that this election is truly a battle of good versus evil.   Obama has placed an assault on the meaning of traditional marriage and on the family.  He is completely opposed to the rights of the unborn, he bows to foreign kings and apologizes in foreign lands for America’s greatness.

He is trying to create an entitlement state where a vast majority of the electorate becomes dependent on the United States Government.   When people become dependent on hand-outs and goodies, they become loyal voters to those handing out those goodies.    But what they don’t understand, and what Santorum stated so well last night, is that when the Government is powerful enough to create “rights”, they are powerful enough to “take them away, or to dictate how you will use them”.

Case and point: Obama Care and the contraceptive mandate, forcing private institutions (religious and secular alike), to provide contraceptives through their insurance to their employees.

Or what about the Obama Administration silencing a letter from the USCCB to Catholics?   That’s right, the letter spoke out against the Contraceptive Mandate and was sent to priests across the Nation.    The Priests and Chaplains were to read the letter to their congregations.   Military Chaplains were ordered by the Obama Administration not to read the letter from the Bishops, because it disagreed with his almighty-decree.

It is interesting to analyze President Obama and Rick Santorum side by side.    I’m not going to speculate as to if Obama is a purely evil man, but many of his policies are a direct slap in the face of Religious Freedom, Liberty and the Natural Law.    Santorum on the other hand embraces his faith but doesn’t wear it on his sleeve.   Santorum has a way of smoothly intigrating his faith through his policies.   To state it another way, Santorum doesn’t create morally compromising problems when he promotes legislation.

From one extreme to the next, Obama versus Santorum would truly represent the metaphysical war of good versus evil.    One man believes it is permissible to kill a 9-month year old, pre-born child.   He also supports partial birth abortion, where the child is essentially born and immediately killed by having its spinal cord severed.    The OTHER man, has consistently defended the sanctity of human life, from conception to natural death.  In fact, Santurum and his wife defied the odds with their little girl Bella, who they brought into the world despite the “mainstream” wisdom that an abortion would be better.

One man actively seeks to undermine religious rights and freedom and is attempting to replace them with government rights and mandates.   The other man wants to promote religious freedom, promote the moral and even economic benefits of marriage and traditional families.   What we have is one candidate promoting vice, while the other promotes virtue.

Any of the Republican candidates would be better than Barack Obama, assuming they live up to their word and protect religious freedom, repeal Obama Care and lead by virtue.    However, I can’t help but to think that despite the mainstream media’s nomination of Mitt Romney, that Santorum still has an excellent shot at winning the GOP nomination.
