Former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.), who’s reportedly gearing up for another Republican presidential campaign, told a right-wing audience this week that “the words ‘separation of church and state’ is not in the U.S. Constitution, but it was in the constitution of the former Soviet Union. That’s where it very, very comfortably sat, not in ours.”

My response to this asshole is that it was not nearly as comfortable as Hitler would have been in the Vatican.

I thought our Constitution called for a separation of church and state. This is just another right wing moron trying to have it his way and get religion tied up in government. Who's religion? If the Evangelicals get this where does it leave the Presbyterians or Unitarians? Would such a thing mean that the recognized religion would have to be Christian? It appears that way to me.

What a bastard. He shows up and uses the old Communism scare. The problem is that many people believe it. I see a lot of right wingers on minimum wage that eat this crap up. The bottom line would be that if they ever achieve their goals here, they will be worse than the Islamists.

I see a pattern that has to be eradicated.

He's a Roman holy Warrior continuing the long Holy War of the Catholic Church on democracy. In around 1215 a pope cursed the magna carta and it's been downhill ever since.  The church called the American and French revolutions and democracy a pestilence that needed to be dealt  with by the strong hand of the church. In the 20th century Popes Pius XI and XII were instrumental in helping every fascist dictator in Europe in order to eliminate democracy and free societies. Pius XII approved and aided the "cleansing" of 1 million non-Catholics in Croatia 1941-4 and with the help of the US hierarchy did his best to stop America from entering the war against Hitler. He also tried his level best to get the USA to A-bomb the Russians and was ready to invade and covert them all to Catholicism. It goes on and on and on but the American people are totally ignorant of this history.

If the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment to the Constitution isn't enough for dear Ricky, he should read Article VI, paragraph 3.  Seems to me that there's mention in there about "no religious test" for any public office or trust ... though I suppose Santorum doesn't want to hear about that ... or Article XI of the Treaty of Tripoli, either.

Maybe we need to put that part of the  Treaty of Tripoli on billboards all over the country.  NOW!  With replicas of the signatures, and the date.

There is also the fact that Ghod is not mentioned in the US constitution, but is in the Confederate constitution.  Guess what!  They effing LOST!

PS: UnSanitorum is a Roman Cat-lick....wonder if he belongs to Opus Dei....

Cat-lick dominionists.  ie: fanatically crazy

I'd much rather have a true Cat-lick (Partnership Culture!) than a dominionist!

Awwwww....that's adorable!

They tried that in Frankoist Spain after Franco defeated the elected secular Spanish government.  He instituted a perfect Catholic dictatorship and took away virtually all the political rights and freedoms of the Spanish people from 1938-70.  Franco's troops would find out from the local priests who the atheists were in every town they captured and shoot them immediately with no trials. He hated women with a passion and made them in 3rd class citizens with no rights whatsoever. He took infants away from 300,000 leftist Spanish families and gave them to right-wing families.  He made orphans from leftist families work for the Church for the rest of their lives and forced them to acknowledge that their dead parents had committed the worst sins and crimes ever.  This man was bad bad bad and was the favorite son of his religion and of Pope Pius XII who reigned during his regime.

The word "trinity" doesn't appear in the Bible either.

I know the word "trinity" is not in the bible, Susan, but just imagine what trouble Jesus had while praying to himself in the garden and running up and down that step ladder as he did it. Even while that went on the Holy Ghost was brooding upon the water. Holy never spoke very much.

Another fun scene is the post-resurrection gallop of Jebus and his buddies from Jerusalem to Galilee and back to Jerusalem in time for dinner.  Something like 60 miles each way....

I wonder if they wore track shoes.  With spikes.

My point was that they bozos who scream that the specific phrase "separation of church and state" is not in the constitution also believe in the trinity.
