    That Damn Christian Talaban Santorum is crazier than any of us thought after all, with such beliefs as he stated today, he would have no problem whatever taking away freedoms for the sake of installing religious beliefs of his choosing as Federal Law. There's no damn way the average American voter will put this Fucking Idiot in the White House. Very soon the only ones backing him will be a few Christian Talaban of his own Ilk, and maybe our RJ OLD GEEZER. The rest of us wouldn't vote for him as country dog catcher.


    Where's LIL'AIPAC, (wolverine4) he's tried hard to strain at making out something Paul said as being against separation of church and state, which it wasn't, Now that Santorum has come out with this in plain english, lets see if he tries to make an issue out of this against Santorum ? Bet not though, because Santorum is on Lil'AIPAC's and Old GEEZER's side wanting to "BOMB IRAN NOW"

    What'd I tell ya ? LOL !!! LIL'AIPAC revived his stretching the truth about Ron Paul being against separation of church and state. That was not what Paul was against, Paul was against the Feds telling the State what stand it should take on the matter.

    Santorum however, left no doubt coming out very clearly that he is against Separation of Church and State, which by the way, freedom from a government sanctioned religion was one of the primary reasons for our founding fathers separating from England here in the New World.

    Too bad, Sanitorium is self-destructing before the Republican primaries are finished. I was hoping he'd get the nomination, and then collapse in the general election against Obama. Unfortunately he appears to be suffering from Premature Elimination. Romney will make the tougher and more rational candidate, but he has his weaknesses, too. icon_sad.gif

    With Santorum being against Sep. of Church and State, then its a given that he'd be all for reviving the Sunday Blue Laws. do any of you younger guys every remember hearing of those laws dictating what could and couldn't be done or sold on 'the lords day' (Sunday)?

    Give him time and he will if the right questions are asked.

    Here in Virginia, I know of at least one 'Sunday Blue Law' still being enforced, that is: It is against the law to hunt on Sunday. (unless its been repealed in the last year, but I'm quite sure its still in force)

    He does believe in separation of church and state--one way.
    http://news.yahoo.com/santorum-touts-wider-role-faith-public-life-164220994.html"I'm for separation of church and state: The state has no business telling the church what do to," the former Pennsylvania senator told about 300 local business leaders at the Livonia and Farmington chambers of commerce breakfast.


    Taken together with his earlier statement:
    "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 ... to say that people of faith have no role in the public square? You bet that makes me want to throw up."

    it can only mean that he wants the church to influence the state but not the opposite, i.e. he's a theocrat.

    And Kennedy's statement is exactly against what he's for:
    http://factcheck.org/2012/02/santorums-twisted-take-on-jfk-religion/Kennedy, Sept. 12, 1960: I believe in an America where the separation of church and state is absolute; where no Catholic prelate would tell the president — should he be Catholic — how to act, and no Protestant minister would tell his parishioners for whom to vote; where no church or church school is granted any public funds or political preference, and where no man is denied public office merely because his religion differs from the president who might appoint him, or the people who might elect him.

    Actually, this could still be good. If this turns into a long, bitter fight, it could cause disunity among the GOP party membership and voters. A disharmonius, bruised, infighting GOP is a nice prospect.

    Remember, it's not *just* about the leader, it's also about the party base and the machine. Santorum my be the sabot that we are looking for, even if he can't take it all the way.
