Dissident Catholic of the Year 2007
Arnold Schwarzenegger, Governor of the State of California
You can't be blamed for not realizing before now that, yes, Mr. Schwarzenegger is Roman Catholic. If you went solely by his public record as Governor of one of the largest states in the U.S.A. it is hard to tell what his faith actually is.
His list of "accomplishments" for 2007:
*Supporting human embryonic stem-cell research
*Signing legislation that outlaws terms from the public schools like "husband and wife" and "mom and dad" as being too exclusionary.
*Has stated publicly that the "legal" mode of marriage as we understand it as between a man and a woman could be abolished legislatively
You may think: who cares he's a statesmen. You may think: big deal, I don't live in California. True. But, it has happened that what becomes law in some of our larger states: Texas, New York, California et. al. can also leech its way into other states. Politicians with a anti-family or anti-life agenda see this stuff pass, or in some cases nearly pass, in the big states, and think they can implement it elsewhere too.
