Santorum: Obama's phony theology, abortions, and more.

USA TODAY

Even though we live in a country where there shall be no religious test for public office, Santorum is trying to appeal to voters by claiming that Obama's theology is "phoney" - a "different kind of christianity".  

 

Constitution Article VI, paragraph 3, and states that:

The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.

 

Santorum also claims that, for some reason, since Obama is black, he shouldn't be deciding that a fetus is not fully human under the constitution.  "Remarkable for a black man".  Remarkable for a presidential candidate, where are fetuses discussed in the constitution again?  Let's play the "race card" to equate fetus rights (And embryo rights, and blastocyst rights, and fertilized egg rights) with the fight against racism.

Santorum claims that "Obamacare" prenatal testing is a way to save money by aborting potentially disabled fetuses.  Although, prenatal testing CAN be used to avoid having a baby with some devastating illnesses, like Tay-Sachs, and in some countries to avoid the dreaded XX Chromosome combination....  I know, I know, but this is a demagogic tool to influence voters.  There is not a sound-bite-able argument.

Going a bit further back (2008), Santorum speechified that-

"Satan is destroying America"

every institution in America has been destroyed by Satan; from academia to politics with even the church having fallen under His sway – not the Catholic church, of course, but “mainline Protestantism” which is in such “shambles” that it is not even Christian any longer.


Also noting that "this is a spiritual war"


People are voting for this  religious fanatic, a crusader to impose Catholic orthodoxy on the American public?  I think I need a xanax.

I only watched the first hour of last night's debate on CNN but was wondering if Santorum was ever asked this direct question: What do you mean when you say that you believe satan is destroying American, systematically?   I think the debate was going to cover religious topics eventually.  Like THAT'S appropriate. 

No, and nothing particularly interesting was asked or spoken. Other than Paul calling him a fake to his face.

I would like someone to ask him if he takes the Bible literally, and if so, what he thinks of shellfish or working on Sundays, or if he believes in Noah being 900 years old, or...

He should be in favor of this too then:

Georgia Democrats propose limitations on vasectomies for men

http://news.blogs.cnn.com/2012/02/21/georgia-democrats-to-propose-l...

the point: These issues need to leave the public and be left to private lives.

He probably IS in favor of banning vasectomies.  I imagine that is the Catholic line as well.  No birth control of any kind.

I'm sure he is.  I was listening to catholic radio the other morning and they were talking about this.  They told a guy he needed a vasectomy reversal if he was going to have sex with his new wife. 

I think if they tried to ban viagra and similar drugs, they'd get more of the hypocritical backlash they're looking for. LOL, imagine some tool like Pat Robertson or some power clown catholic bishop getting all bent out of shape about the government taking away their viagra....   

He's a devious little theocrat, isn't he?  These things will come back to haunt him if he can win over Mutt Rumney.
