Larry Doyle: The Jesus-Loving Cult of Rick Santorum

Posted by Larry Doyle on March 1, 2012 9:45 AM |

“LD, have you gone mad??”

“I thought Sense on Cents was a blog to navigate the economic landscape?”

Relax, folks. I have not gone mad and Sense on Cents is not changing its primary goals of promoting investor education and investor protection.

That said, I am compelled to digress in this one commentary given some recent messages I have received in response to a commentary run at the Huffington Post written by a Larry Doyle entitled The Jesus-Eating Cult of Rick Santorum.

Doyle spews forth some truly vile comments which do little to promote a sense of decency in our nation.

I am hesitant to reference the comments and give them added credibility. The commentary by ‘that’ Larry Doyle has caused an enormous stir and released a whirlwind of widespread reactions across the blogosphere. Thinking that I was the writer, I have received messages that are not appropriate to reprint.

Mr. Doyle may care to pass off his work as a satire. I would remind him that real satire is easily understood as such.

Mr. Doyle has every right to speak his mind. In my opinion, he does himself and our nation a disservice to defile and degrade the Catholic faith at large and those who practice it. I also have every right to speak my mind and counter his commentary. As an individual who loves my Catholic faith and the lessons taught us by Jesus Christ, I actually feel obliged to do just that.

Regular readers know I have every interest in pursuing the truth wherever and however it may be found.  I am not so blind as to think there are not members within the Catholic hierarchy who have failed in their calling and their mission. I also strongly believe the lessons taught us in Scripture of faith, hope, and love are the proper path for us as individuals and a nation.

I am not here to promote the candidacy of Rick Santorum nor any other candidate. On this the day 175 years ago when the Congregation of Holy Cross was formed and set out to launch the University of Notre Dame, I am here to remind all those who may read Mr. Doyle’s commentary, and mine as well, of one very simple lesson: We are all sinners.   

I write to counter his commentary in the blogosphere, let others know I am not that Larry Doyle, and to spread the aforementioned message. You can help by spreading this commentary!! I thank you.

God bless . . . and on that note, your regular writer will return to help us collectively navigate the economic landscape!!

I have no affiliation or business interest with any entity referenced in this commentary. The opinions expressed are my own. I am a proponent of real transparency within our markets, our economy, and our political realm so that meaningful investor confidence and investor protection can be achieved.

    mr. doyle … thank you for pointing out mr. doyle’s article and for the clarification that we’re confronted by two different authors with differing opinions. your writings on matters of finance are enriching and informative; alas it appears the ‘other’ mr. doyle more than trumps you on … other issues.

    thank you kindly

    Hey Larry, you know your playing on the side of the angels when evil comes calling.

    Mr. Doyle:

    Nice response to that “”other” Mr. Doyle “article”. I think I’ll reference you as LD to differentiate the two of you.

    I did not read the satire piece. However, as a former Catholic for over 30 years, but still a Christian, I wish the Catholic Church and Rick Santorum would stop trying to push their religious belief on the rest of us.

    Thank you for your Sense on Cents column. It is very informative. I don’t agree with everything, but I appreciate your comments.

    maybe you could use your middle initial?

  • Thank you Mr. Doyle (not the other Mr. Doyle…).
