Maybe this article will enlighten some to the mystical union the RCC promotes. Just go to Israel during the week leading up to Easter and walk the supposed route that Jesus took and pray and you will be moved. You will be closer to God than you've ever been.
What happened to loving God, living holy, and pointing others to Him? I guess I'm old fashioned.

1. If he is going to run he needs to run as a Libertarian and not a closet Republican. If some were willing to vote for him in the Republican primaries then why not accept who the nominee is once it has been determined. He disagrees with over half the Republican platform and still wants to use that platform to move up to the White House? Keep in mind that he ran as a Libertarian in 1998. What changed?
2. He wants to end all income tax http://www.house.gov/paul/congrec/congrec2003/cr013003c.htm What is going to replace it to bring in money to support national defense, local and federal government, and our civil servants?
3. Mr. Paul’s views on homosexuality do not line up with orthodox Christianity.http://www.americablog.com/2007/08/ron-paul-on-homosexuality-sin-and-dont.html It appears that he supports the "Don’t ask don’t tell policy."
4.Why would Mr. Paul want to revise the repeal of the 17th amendment which would stop voters from choosing U.S. senators and allow members of the state legislature to choose them? Talk about keeping big government.
5. Mr. Paul wants to go back to using gold and silver as legal tender and abolishing the federal reserve. This would rock the U.S. economy.
6. He wants to eliminate the IRS but is in favor of Social Security. He still has not stated where tax revenue would come from.
7. He supports removing all troops from all foreign locations. He does not believe we should “police” other countries. Should we not stand up for other countries against wicked ones? Israel did. Should we defend Israel?
8. Someone sent this to me recently http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MEVMRESs6Qw
9. There seems to be a plethora of racists/anti-Semitic remarks that follow Mr. Paul.
I think Mr. Paul strikes many as an extremist and an isolationist. He has plenty of hot air toward the current administration but has no real solutions.
Lastly, I don't remember hearing Mr. Paul condemn this adminstration or our military for its aggressive posture right after 9/11. And for him to insinuate that there is/was a cover-up with the 9/11 attack is treasonous

You are probably wondering why I feel this why. It's simple. The Roman Catholic Church's history makes this story and Ratzinger's "plea" a total joke.
Isn't this precious? Since we are in the "Holy Week" the "head" of the RCC decides to get all peaceful on us."Pope Benedict XVI denounced the 5-year-old Iraqi war and issued one of his strongest appeals for peace in the country Sunday"
A few words come to mind when I think about this...Inquisition, The Index, and the Jesuits. Need I say more?
In the 1200's Pope "Innocent" issued a papal bull called Ad Exstirpanda which authorized the use of torture by inquisitors against non-Catholics that the RCC deemed dangerous which included anyone who questioned the RCC.
These torturous acts were only supposed to happen once. So, if the RCC wanted to torture again, they just said that it was a continuation of the first.
The church was not permitted to kill (like burning at the stake) so they forced the state to do so with a threat of excommunication if they refused.
The "Index" of prohibited books (Index Librorum Prohibitorum) was a list of books that the RCC deemed dangerous.
Where are the watchers of the watchdoggies to talk about this one? I say chasing their tails.
So, who cares what the head of the RCC has to say? He and his church lost all credibility when they prostituted the gospel for power and money about 1200-1400 years ago.
