Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." (Matthew 19:14)

Bella is safe in the loving arms of Jesus - prayers for her recovery.

Certainly will be praying for baby Bella and her busy family.

What a lovely picture of Rick and Bella.

With other choices for a job, how DOES he leave that darling creation? I will never get it.

There are many Santorums to look after Bella. And he sees her more often than you think.

Rick is running not for political gain like the opportunist Romney but to help make this country a better, freer place for Bella and all of our children and grandchildren.

She’s a cutie and what a lovely picture. He is an honorable man for caring for the weakest among us. A good parent! I pray she recovers. This family must be under such stress with her ongoing health issues and the grind of the primary process.

I’m not savvy on how to post pic..but if you go to Facebooks’ We Pick Rick page..there’s a great one like this one of Rick and Alice. Authenticity at it’s finest.

What is happening to my country? How could the voting electorate be so stupid as to put their faith in Bishop Willard, a deceitful, mean spirited liberal who has no message, no core and no honor?

We Pick Rick shared Alice Linahan’s photo.

His wife has been with him on the campaign trail and he is home with his family right now. He’s no different than a man who has a job that requires his travelling for a living. I’m sure he spends quite a lot of time with his little girl. If he doesn’t, then that’s really his business.

Why this jerk, Rick, would be running for president is beyond my belief.

Then don't vote for him. In the meantime, you might do him and his wife the courtesy of not trying to parent for them.

“Bella” in Spanish means “beautiful.”

Why Rick would be running for pres. is beyond my belief.

He should be home giving his wife support since his daughter is not going to be alive too near in the future.

__________________________________________________

Should Bella expire before the elections, this would give him a lot of sympathy votes.

Good grief!!!!

Sort of a cheeky Kenyan bastard trick when he pretended his grandmother died a day or so just before the elections.

Your screen name indicates where you live. And I am under no illusions that you would vote for Santorum.

In the interim, however, this thread is supposed to be about his sick daughter, rather than about how you feel the Santorum family should manage its life.

Good luck cleaning up Panama.

“In the interim, however, this thread is supposed to be about his sick daughter”…

Thank you for your comments.

This has nothing to do with Rick or anybody else. It has to do with a husband and father who should be home giving support to his wife and daughter...especially his wife...above political aspirations. I am talking about his being there with his wife for support. Period.

Good luck cleaning up your filthy political mess.

You made it about Rick. I didn’t.

I suggest that he and his wife know how to parent and know what is best for their own family.

We will need luck in cleaning up our filthy political mess. I believe Santorum can do it. Good day.

Swell to see you couldn’t keep quite and to yourself on a thread discussing the Santorums daughter being rushed to the hospital. Always slamming anything Rick, no matter what, like a school yard bully. Absolutely disgraceful. You have a heart of coal.

Rita, sorry FRiend.

We support the same guy. Heck Antonius and Lazlo know I work for Newt and still they keep me on the Santorum ping list, but that wasn’t appropriate at all.

A politician is fair game. A sick child is not. I don’t give a crap if the pols try to use their kids as props - I won’t play that game and nor should you.

You are better than that.

" Absolutely disgraceful. You have a heart of coal. "

A woman with this kind of heart is more like Jezebel .

Yes, it's disgraceful by some people's comments here even for someone's family member in the hospital.

My response to little Bella’s crisis speaks for itself up thread ( #5 ) with sincere concerns for her health and well being.

To wonder how a father DOES this, with such a chronically ill baby who is reportedly destined for a short life, is not an extraordinary question on a thread about Bella.

In fact, your prickly reactions may say you have wondered the same thing. Who wouldn’t?

The injection of the political came with the claim that Santorum was not an “opportunist”, and then waxed poetic on why Rick was running for president.

Quite apart from Bella’s critical illness, to believe that Santorum is not a political opportunist I found astounding and simply said so, at #16.

I would say save the Jezebel business and the coal hearted hysterics for the delegates who will soon be placing Rick back in the home, with hopefully a job near by, for Bella’s sake as well as the country.

Meanwhile, maybe a good idea would be to drop the harrumphing and return to your prayerful thread?

God bless Bella and her family.

And that is the ONLY thing that should matter on this thread.

My entry into this thread came in response to post 12, which was pulled by the mods and restated by the poster, which called Santorum a 'jerk' and who later compared him to "the Kenyan bastard".

Inappropriate on a thread regarding the health of his daughter. There are threads all over Free Republic where people can trash Santorum to their heart's content. This shouldn't be one of them.

God bless Bella and her family.

Blessed Lord,
we ask your loving care and protection for those who are sick
in body, mind, or spirit and who desire our prayers.
Take from them all fears and help them put their trust in you,
that they may feel your strong arms around them.
Touch them with your renewing love,
that they may know wholeness in you and glorify your name,
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
AMEN.

” Please don’t do this on this Bella Santorum thread...

And please don’t incite further discussion just because your pals laid some ground work on who isn’t an opportunist. This has been taken care of without your input.

It’s a prayer thread after all. And it’s Good Friday. Go pray.

God bless Bella and her family.

Thank you for your post.

All of us who are believers and care about pro-life issues in the current presidential campaign should be praying for Santorum’s daughter. This is something on which Gingrich and Santorum supporters can and should be able to show unity.
