The neocons ran their usual smear campaign against Ron Paul when they discovered he would be speaking at a big Catholic gathering on peace. But it was a belly flop for the warmongers. Of course, he kept his word, gave a magnificent speech, and the libelers fell flat on their faces, as always, as he was cheered again and again.
One of the highpoints for Ron was his talk with the Catholic archbishop of Antioch, who had been a priest in the US for 20 years, and who is a genuine expert on the horrific, neocon-promoted events in Syria. Ron also noted what a sweet, gentle, and loving crowd it was, the opposite of what the neocons claimed. But then, they are virtually always opposite to the truth.
Ron had noted that it not easy to take part in a gathering where the other speakers advocate evil, but nevertheless he had decided to participate in the Republican presidential debates.
