It is only if the principles of the universality and indivisibility of human rights and a “juridical order solidly based upon the dignity and nature of humanity, in other words, upon the natural law” are recognized that international cooperation can occur. Out of the universal and indivisible rights arising out of man’s nature, we must recognize as central the “dignity of the human person, beginning with the centrality of the right to life and to freedom of religion.”

Obama is seeking re-election in the midst of a terrible economy. Here he hopes to appeal to a new, young generation of voters (many of whom may have become disenchanted since he took office), amp up his hipness factor and reach out to people concerned with education.
‘Their reach and influence covers all corners of Iowa, and I know they did not take this endorsement lightly. This means so much more to our campaign. If their work on behalf of Gov. Huckabee four years ago is any indication, I have no doubt they will be a terrific catalyst for our campaign as we continue building momentum in Iowa.’ (Rick Santorum)Tags: Barack Obama, catholic news, catholic world news, Evangelical Ministers Endorse Rick Santorum, GOP nomination, iowa primary, MariaNews.com, mitt romney, Newt Gingrich, Poltiical, Republican Primary, Rick Santorum, ron paul, United States Presidential ElectionPoltiical
