The Irish Taoiseach (Prime Minister) today announced the date of the much anticipated general election, which has now been scheduled to take place on Friday March 11th next.
I would encourage all my Irish colleagues to contact representatives of all parties to clarify their position on the critical social issues such as the right to life of the unborn and to vote only for pro-life, pro-family candidates. It would be a grave error for political parties to focus only on economic policies when there are equally disastrous social policies that require urgent attention
For some years now I have felt completely alienated from all the major political parties by their liberal policies and the enactment or attempted enactment of legislation on social issues which contravene natural law.
I am also of the belief that I am not alone in the perception that the major parties have lost on way on these issues and I am aware of a large constituency of voters who are like-minded.
May I suggest to all the major parties that you should look again at your party roots and at the disastrous liberal social agenda which has been adopted in recent times by successive governments. I am convinced that strong statements now by all parties on the importance of the natural family based on marriage, the right to life from conception to natural death, the rights of parents in respect of their children's development and education together with real commitments to improve their position in the future administration, will attract real support from the electorate particularly if these issues are held sacred and and are non negotiable and without compromise,
I would also ask colleagues to contact me when and if you succeed in getting real commitments from potential candidates so that we can make a strategic list of candidates who are willing to make firm commitments on critical issues such as the right to life of the unborn.
