6. Firstly...

Santorum is not the Pope, and certainly isn't Jesus, and it's not up to him to say who is a Christian.

Secondly. how does he reconcile the words of the Bible about 'what you did not unto the least of these' and about rich men and camels, etc. with his version of Christianity.

Thirdly, he seems to want to impose some sort of religious dictatorship on America, based on HIS views of religion. How is this acceptable? Or particularly different from someone wanting Sharia law? (I used to call Palin 'the Ayatollah of Alaska', but he's worse than her, which is difficult!)

Fourthly it would be tempting for us Brits to be smug at this point about this sort of attitude not affecting Britain - but read this, by Tim Stanley in the Torygraph, and weep!
