Here, before a crowd of more than 600, Santorum said, “I love it because the left says, ‘equality, equality.’ Where does that concept come from? Does it come from Islam? Does it come from other cultures around the world? … No, it comes it comes from our culture and tradition, from the Judeo-Christian ethic. “
Precisely. Just look at the bible for example. How jews and christians kept slaves. How there is not once single sentence condemning the practice in the book. How it says “Slaves, obey your earthly masters with respect and fear, and with sincerity of heart, just as you would obey Christ”. Is this equality or what?
judeo-chistian equality. The same one that established slavery at the founding of the USA. Someone should give Santorum a doctorate degree. The man is a scholar.
I don’t believe in an America where the separation of church and state is absolute. The idea that the church can have no influence or no involvement in the operation of the state is absolutely antithetical to the objectives and vision of our country.
“Freedom of religion” as afforded to us by the First Amendment isn’t actually freedom at all when the constituencies of the well-funded upper class gain another stronghold on our lives via the privatization of our education and healthcare institutions; rather, it’s insurance that this wealthy minority will have the power to vehemently promulgate their personal and sometimes extreme ideologies right into our bodies and our children by proxy of eliminating any democratic government influence, i.e., your vote, on those institutions.
Apparently, Rick Santorum’s campaign has hired a team of tremendously talented package designers, because they’ve managed to rebrand plutocracy as democracy only using red, white, and blue.
A vote for this guy is a vote for hate, bigotry, and inbred idealism. Get your head out of your ass and get your religion out of everyone else’s bedroom.
“[I have] a problem with homosexual acts, as I would with what I would consider to be acts outside of traditional heterosexual relationships . . if the Supreme Court says that you have the right to consensual [gay] sex within your home, then you have the right to bigamy, you have the right to polygamy, you have the right to incest, you have the right to adultery.” ~ Rick Santorum on gay sex, AP interview
