    Just within the last 24 hours:

    That last paragraph especially is so garbled it sounds like the statement of a drunk.

    What exactly is he going for here? That government policy should be based on the Bible? That religious freedom should be the basis for denial of some forms of health care?

    The man is clearly flailing.

    And:

    Okay, so he's dismissing the value of prenatal testing, and accusing President Obama of promoting eugenics I guess.

    Pretty desperate there, Rick.

    So let me see if I have this straight. Obama's agenda is not based on the bible and Iran is the biggest danger in the world because it's a theocracy.

    I'm normally a very peaceful old bunny, but when I see Rick's smug smiling face I just want to punch him.:(

    What a mumbling idiot! What he babbled in the first story is so incoherent. :rolleyes: Go back to speech class Frothy Mix!

    When will this stop? November cannot come fast enough. Before it was entertainment. Now I am actually scared.

    You know what the number one cause of abortion in the world is? Sex. So let's just outlaw sex :rolleyes:

    You'd think these GOP *******s would be all for gay rights. Gay couples aren't ever going to need an abortion.

    Santorum is one scary dude.. although not a resident of the u.s, if he becomes president, will have impact on the entire world.

    "Contraception hurts women", Santorum also claimed.

    There is ( rather, should ) be a separation between church and state so Obama's religious beliefs should be totally irrelevant.

    You think you're scared now? Wait'll Weathervane loses the Michigan primary and Santorum becomes the new frontrunner...if he isn't already.

    the very pathetic part is santorum does not even follow what his church dictates. The church says everyone should have healthcare minimum wage should be increased and on and on. but santorum is against welfare healthcare the poor. He is as much of a christian as my dog is a christian. At least my dog cares about others.
    To say nothing that the bible does not say anything about abortions and birth control. Who would have ever thought that a black man could make The religious crazies go crazy and try to take the world over.

    This is just a personal opinion mind you so let's nit get into a religion war here.

    Obama is more of a "christian" than santorum will ever be.

    I'd wager that I'm more of a Christian than Santorum and I'm a Jew turned Atheist who has a strong contempt for organized religion, especially evangelical Christianity.

    The worst part is people vote for this fool. But who is more the fool? The fool or the fools that follow him.

    As I was saying in another thread, religion in politics comes across to me as something inappropriate and often very cheesy. Besides, jesus encouraged followers to be no part of this world, not to wear their faith on their sleeve, and to pray in a private space.

    That said, I respect a candidate more if I think they use reasoning and thoughtful sensibility rather than blind faith in spirits/taroh cards/fairies/sky daddies. Santorum is no different than any other politician that plays up the "faith" aspect of his candidacy... just a marketing ploy to get the most sheep to follow him. That is the way religion and politicians have ALWAYS worked together to legitimize each other.

    Wow. First he doubles down on the crazy stuff he said yesterday (good luck with the women's vote there, Rick!), then he suggests that public education should be pushed down to the local, community level, and to de-standardize education plans. (The better to slip propaganda into the minds of kids, I guess.)

    Incidentally, Mr. Santorum, sir, the idea of state level provision of education didn't with start with the industrial revolution; it was proposed by Thomas Jefferson.

    In the primaries he's won, only a small fraction of the general population in each state voted for him. That is nowhere near the kind of support he will need to make a credible challenge in a general election.

    Which is probably why the White House relishes the idea of him being the potential nominee...at least according to a reporter on MtP this morning.

    I think Santorum would be happy with a completely private education system where those that could afford it could pay to have their children indoctrinated taught at religious schools and the rest could go **** themselves.
