Felipe Calderon wins Mexican Election

In an extremely close election, conservative candidate Felipe Calderon, a devout Roman Catholic, has won his election campaign to succeed Vicente Fox, another devout Catholic, who shocked many when he kissed Pope John Paul ll's ring during the Pontiff's 2002 visit to Mexico in an act of humility. I am particularly pleased with reading this:

"Calderon is unabashedly conservative on moral issues. He's opposed to contraception and the morning-after pill, and believes the only acceptable reasons for abortion are cases of rape and incest and when the mother's health is at risk."

This is excellent news. Reuters previously reported some people were trying to get citizens to openly reject candidates that agree with the Church on abortion and contraception. I'm so pleased to read that Felipe Calderon, a man of values, is going to be the President and the anti-Catholic agenda lost again! Mexcio has about 100 million people and 85 percent are Catholic.

A mandatory recount will begin soon because of the closeness of the election. But, I'm still very pleased that he will pull through.
