Rick Santorum

February 18, 2012

I saw a headline today: Santorum Knocks Obama’s Christian Values

He said that Obama’s agenda is “not about you. It’s not about your quality of life. It’s not about your jobs. It’s about some phony ideal. Some phony theology. Not a theology based on the Bible. A different theology.”

Not that it makes much difference, but I hate letting this kind of thing go by without a response. (This is not support for Obama, about whom I’ve become less than indifferent. It’s simply revulsion at what passes for religion in this country.) Rick Santorum knows nothing about religion. He is a staunch opponent of real religion, a follower of a phony theology. While I think that anyone who believes that the Bible is the inerrant word of God is off their rocker (or should I say “sadly mistaken”?), I would add that Santorum actually opposes a great deal of the philosophy—stated plainly—that is in the Bible. Christ taught pacifism as well as redistribution of the wealth, and anybody who can’t see that is deaf, blind, or simply obstinate. People like Rick Santorum need to be exposed as the charlatans that they are.
