The Pinnochio Factor


http://faithfulinthe8th.blogspot.com/2016/09/the-pinnochio-factor.html

When we look back over the past few years, how well did those who seemed to share our values on human life, marriage/family, and conscience follow through?

  • Highlights of voter guides from the Pa Catholic Conf / Archdiocese, Pa Family Council, and Pa Pro Life Federation (10/31/14)
    •  A new bottom line (i.e., Take a look at David Gibbon in the 31st.)....(11/3/14)
  • 2012 Pro Life / Pro Marriage / Pro Religious Liberty Voter Information (11/3/12)
    • C.S. and T's Candidates' Questionnaire (10/30/10)
      • John Galloway - pro-life, pro-conscience, pro-family (11/1/10)

    For the Bucks County delegation in Harrisburg, have the impressions with which we were left been matched by present performance (as of 9/16/16)?

    As per Pa Family.org, “the latest move is to split SB 974 into parts to force it through in a piecemeal basis.  There are three proposed parts to this new strategy - SB 1306, SB 1307 and SB1316.”
