Quote of the Day

“Mainstream Catholics want leaders who can address the moral challenges of our day like income inequality, underwater mortgages and poverty, not leaders who perpetuate a never-ending culture war that divides our community.” 

— James Salt, Catholics United Executive Director, explaining why Catholic voters are not casting ballots in favor of Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum, who is also Catholic.

Quote of the Day

“Early in my political career I had the opportunity to read the speech and I almost threw up.” 

– Rick Santorum reflecting on John F. Kennedy’s 1960 speech advocating the separation of church and state

Now Santorum is trying to back away from that repulsive and dramatic statement.  You can’t put toothpaste back in a tube (although some have tried), and Santorum can’t do much to make up for such an idiotic description.  Santorum isn’t half the man that Kennedy was in his short life and probably never will be.  The thought of Santorum in the Oval Office –with his medieval views of society and the various people who occupy it – makes me want to throw up!  Fortunately, most Americans – even conservative Republicans – are too moderate and logical to let this clown get that far.

Quote of the Day

“I don’t believe in an America where the separation of church and state are absolute.  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.”

– Rick Santorum, speaking on ABC’s This Week.

 

Here’s a refresher for Santorum and other like-minded religious zealots.

Bill of Rights – Amendment I:

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”

Quote of the Day

“I understand why Barack Obama wants to send every kid to college, because of their indoctrination mills, absolutely.  The indoctrination that is going on at the university level is a harm to our country.”

— Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum, in an interview with conservative radio host Glenn Beck.

Santorum and Beck mulled over a number of social and political issues, but hearing them converse about education is like Abbott and Costello discuss quantum physics.  Higher education makes people think outside the religious and social boxes in which their families and communities place them.  Therefore, in Santorum’s convoluted view, it’s better for them not to go to college and just stay ignorant.  I guess that’s why he and Beck get along so well.  Add Sarah Palin into the sloppy mix and it’ll be the holy trinity of stupid!

Personal observation: he apparently evolved just after homo-erectus.  Being a recovering Catholic, I feel I’ve evolved, too – homo and erect.
