The Prophet Santorum Once Again Clarifies Godís Will [View all]

In spite of the political riskiness of proclaiming his truth as, the truth, Rick Santorum has never shied away from sitting in judgment of those who donít share his religious values or perspective. Speaking to a crowd at a campaign rally on Friday, Santorum announced:

The ďpresidentís agendaĒ is ďnot about you,Ē he said. ďItís not about you. Itís not about your quality of life. Itís not about your job. Itís about some phony ideal, some phony theology. Oh, not a theology based on the Bible, a different theology, but no less a theology.Ē

The predominately conservative crowd roared their approval

Then of course, Santorumís campaign team went into damage control. Knowing full well that the conservative Catholic presidential candidate had just publicly raised the specter of Barack Obama not being a Ďrealí Christian, his National Communications Director, Hogan Gidley quickly got out a statement to the media:

ďThe President says heís a Christian and Rick believes that and has even said so publicly many times. Rick was talking about the Presidentís belief in the secular theology of government and how believing that theology is dangerous because government theology teaches that itís perfectly fine to take away our God-given rights and freedoms.Ē

Speaking Sunday morning on CBSí ďFace the Nation,Ē Santorum himself tried a little sanctimonious damage control of his own:

ďI accept the fact that the president is a Christian. But when you have a world view that elevates the Earth above man and says we canít take those resources because its going to harm the Earth, itís just all an attempt to centralize power and give more power to the government.Ē


God's Will?
