Finally, a big Catholic site with a HUGE Catholic Huckabee endorsement. The first question I asked God when I read this (as well as Bobby Schindler's) ringing endorsement is, "But why did it take so long?" But His ways are not ours, and His timing is certainly not Fighting Irish Thomas' ...
Anyway, "The Only 'Catholic' On the Ballot: Mike Huckabee?" is too good to summarize (please read it all), but author Robert Stackpole's basic premise, "This time around Catholics have been given extra help in making wise choices ... the (Catholic Bishops 2007 Document) 'Forming Consciences for Faithful citizenship' ... when this is done fairly and without prejudice ... the candidate most 'in sync' with the Church's guidance is none other than devout Evangelical Mike Huckabee," is exactly that of FIT/Domers for Huckabee.
Stackpole goes on to cover not only Huckabee's uncompromising views on abortion, euthanasia, and traditional marriage, but how Huck's preferential view of the poor (including his fair tax proposal) is right in line with Catholic teaching too!
As far as too little too late, well Super Tuesday hasn't happened yet, has it? So when Huck receives the eleventh hour support of Schindler, C.O. or the myriad of states' pro-life groups who have endorsed Mike this past week, our response shouldn't be a sarcastic "Great," but an enthusiastic gratefulness that our prayers have indeed been answered.
And am I the only one who finds it humorous (in a holy sort of way) that Catholic Online is advertising St. Michael the Archangel medals next to its ringing Guest Commentary endorsement of Mike Huckabee?
Heck, how can one NOT pray, St. Michael the Archangel ... for Huck now?
