"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

President Marco: Why not?

He will be bald too - don't vote for looks.


Just think, if Marco Rubio gets in we will have our own President Marcos.

How cool is that?  For four years we can obsess over his wife's shoes.

Please don't vote for a man because of his religious beliefs - especially when they change like the weather.

What?
I know he's Cuban.

  1. When Marco Rubio first made the scene and was the darling of the Republican party, I liked him lots...then I don't know what happened. I have no interest in anything he has to say anymore...maybe it was like a crush or something but he just comes off as bland, an empty suit.

    That picture of him with his hair flying all about...I wonder if that means something.

    I read too one day he's Catholic, next day he's an Evangelical.

    I can't have my men waffling...no sirree!

  2. Marco Rubio is Catholic. Ted Cruz is Southern Baptist and could be Evangelical for all I know. It is not good to get one's Cubans confused. I'm Catholic, for the record.

    2. Hay caramba! I am Catholic too! Where has my brain run off to???

      Anyway, here's the article I read long ago...not sure if it holds true today:

      Marco Rubio: Catholic or Protestant?

    3. If it's true he goes to an evangelical church, supports them financially and occasionally shows up for Mass he's a cafeteria catholic and maybe not even that.

  3. My point here is that most politicians use religion to get votes. I happen to like Martin O'Malley who also happens to be Catholic - but not the right kind. So far I haven't seen him use his religious card. It seems to me most Catholics are cafeteria patrons at one time or another. I think we have been fooled by both political parties ever since Roe v. Wade - and the Republicans have been the worst. Although I think I saw something on Patheos that Hilary Clinton is carrying a Bible around?

    Pick a religious Republican and Armageddon gets closer. Remember how God told Bush to go after Saddam? Lately Michele Bachmann is saying the second coming is imminent. These people are fanatics.

    What?

    1,2,3 - the end.

  4. Didn't you just tell me I needed to stock up on blessed candles and holy water because the three days of darkness are imminent? So it's not just Michelle...

    What?

    1. That's true Nan - but that's been mitigated.

  5. It is true that he has had a meandering journey. He was even Mormon at one point. He'll have to clarify his religious position during the campaign. For any of these guys, I would say the main religion is always Politician.

  6. He is Roman Catholic. His mother took him to the Mormon church for three years when Marco was little and they lived in Las Vegas. He eventually returned to the Roman fold which is a good thing.

  7. Does he still go to the protestant place and support it?
