I don't think anyone who's a brand new Catholic can be a role model for other Catholics.

It is a controversial question. The repentance and conversion is value, and many of us need that.

The problem with Gingrich is that he did not show the sign of repentance for divorces, at least not publicly, so puting him to the center of the news approves the no fault divorce.

How exactly do you show repentance for divorce?  Try harder next time?  :laughing:

Seriously.  I hope I am never famous.  It's hard to keep a glass house clean enough for you people.

Agreed.  He's made his conversion to the Church.  That's a nice first step.

First step to true conversion or subversion on his part?

I think "let's hope that" is a better attitude than "let's see if."


Hope sure, but lets not be battered spouses, wh oso often say "gee, wish I had know.."

I think so, too, but will being Catholic help him get votes?


of course, he is "lesser of 2 evils" and  Republican (never have to worry about acutally leaving GOP once and for all, now do we!! Heaven forbid we support anyone other than a "R" or "D" after their name......cant have that, though many did in 1856......)

Beats me.  I don't know how to read souls.
