Catholics Against Rudy

Catholics Against Rudy

Update: If you want to see video Steve’s appearance on MSNBC’s “Hardball with Chris Mathews” there are two links: 1 and 2.

Stephen Dillard of the sadly now defunct blog Southern Appeal is one of the names behind a new site called Catholics Against Rudy. Their aim is to oppose Rudy Giuliani’s bid for Republican presidential nomination because of his appalling record on issues related to the Cultures of Life and Death.

While there are other candidates with equally bad records, as a Catholic, Giuliani is of particular concern to us, even if essentially he has publicly repudiated his faith. As Catholics, it’s our duty to police our own house.

If some Republicans thought that Catholic opposition to John Kerry was based on partisan politics they were wrong, and if they try to advance Giuliani’s nomination, they’ll see how wrong.

There are other candidates who are much more suitable, Republican and otherwise. Giuliani is not. Simple as that.

I hope Steve’s site becomes a strong resource for those seeking to advance candidates who support a culture of life. It’s scheduled to go live on July 4.

And if you have a blog or web site and want to show your agreement, put this graphic on your site and link to Catholics Against Rudy.

  • Funny timing. I had just decided, based on Rudy’s reaction to the lightning, that we should all pray for him. So I am.
    He didn’t change his stance, but he sure wobbled…and here in RI he would not talk about Bishop Tobin, directly, BECAUSE of that lightning. Hmmm..he’s starting to look hopeful to me. He can almost hear. He wouldn’t be my first choice, but if he is nominated, it might be possible to vote for him rather than abstain. The near future will tell.

  • Have they looked at how their bumper sticker actually reads? STOP CATHOLCIS AGAINST RUDY

    Golly, does no one know how to come up with a slogan or a graphic anymore?

  • Ed-

    That’s a fair point. I honestly had not thought about it that way. But I agree that it can be interpreted in more than one way. I’ll talk to the design guy. In the meantime, Dom, you can use one of the other images I sent you.

    BTW, at some point, I want to talk to you about doing a canon-law piece for CAR.

  • I was extremely dissappointed with Brownback when he said he’d support Rudy.  My jaw dropped.  Here’s the guy who always seemed to stick to his principles, to rag on Mitt because Mitt did not think abortion is murder, and then in front of millions says that he would support someone who thinks murder is an acceptable choice.  I was a strong Brownback supporter.  No more.  I still like the guy, but he failed to live up to the hype.

  • Ah yes. (Forgive my typos) Anyway, the new (other?) bumpersticker is much clearer, and even better, shorter.

    SD: I’ve blogged a couple of times about Rudy…

  • I still think it’s significant that Rudy SAW that lightning, even if Bishop T, while open to other interpretations, considers it coincidence. (Well, it wasn’t HIS msg, after all) There is a chance that having seen the lightning, Rudy will see the light and either change his stance or forfeit the race.Still praying.
