Rick Santorum Has A Pastor Problem

When you’re the candidate of religious extremists, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise  when one of them opens their mouth and says something incredibly boneheaded.

At a Baton Rouge revival yesterday, the Republican presidential candidate was introduced and blessed by the fire-breathing pastor Dennis Terry. To a cheering crowd, Terry shouted that ours is a “Christian nation,” that “we don’t worship Buddha, we don’t worship Mohammad, we don’t worship Allah,” and that anyone who doesn’t like “the way we do things” should “get out.”

Santorum said nothing. And when the time came to receive a blessing from Terry—right hand over Santorum’s shoulder, left hand on his back—Santorum accepted it, nodding in reverence. – Daily Beast

Rick Santorum is campaigning far, far to the right, courting Christian extremists in order to steal a voting bloc from Mitt Romney.  His views on public schools, contraception, abortion, and American Exceptionalism fall right in line with the Dominionist theory of the Seven Mountains.

After the event, Santorum told reporters that he does not agree “that America shouldn’t do that,” by which he appeared to mean, it should not conduct an ethnic/ideological cleansing of non-Christians. “I believe very much in freedom of religion, and folks should be able to worship whoever they want to worship,” Santorum said, adding, “I wasn’t quite listening to everything, to be honest with you.”

Saying he wasn’t listening is about as bald-faced of a lie as one could tell considering he was clapping during the pastor’s controversial remarks.

It absolutely floors me that Santorum can consistently say, on the record, that what we saw and what we heard didn’t really happen.  Honestly, he thinks the American public is stupid.

While his religiously insane policy positions may preach well to the choir he, along with the other 3 knuckleheads vying for the GOP nomination, would do well to remember that they’ll have to speak to the entire congregation once the convention is over.
