Mitt Romney's Latest Brazen Lie

Mitt Romney’s campaign sent the letter below to his Catholic supporters. Funny he did not mention that he COMPLETELY backed off his previous support for the Blunt Amendment during the second debate. I am sorry but I have come to the conclusion that even by the low bar standards for veracity that we expect from politicians, Mr. Romney is just a really brazen liar. And, as Bishops Morlino, and Paprocki have reminded us, we can’t vote for an intrinsic evil, and lying is an intrinsic evil.

Here is the text of the letter:

Throughout my life, I have defended America’s first liberty: religious freedom.

In the debates and out on the campaign trail, I have made this very clear: regardless of our practice, we are united in our faith and in our battle to make sure we preserve religious liberty and tolerance in this country.

That’s why I am grateful to have the support of Catholics like you. I believe the Catholic Church embodies all that’s great about
America. You know what you believe; you know who you are; and you know Whom you serve.

Barack Obama, Joe Biden and their liberal allies have been misleading Catholics in the hopes of gaining support. Even the
U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops corrected Vice President Biden after he misled Catholics on the threat of the HHS Mandate.

As president, I will reverse President Obama’s infringements on religious liberty and freedom of conscience, because I respect the role of religious institutions. And I will follow our Constitution and uphold the individual’s right to worship according to his or her beliefs.

I share your values. And I cannot emphasize enough how essential the Catholic vote is to winning this election for Republicans up and down the ballot. That’s why we need your help in getting out the vote and the truth.

Please watch my new video on religious liberty and spread the word<>.
