Rick Santorum: Insane Christian

An article on CNN today:

Santorum wants to impose ‘Judeo-Christian Sharia’

Plainly put, Rick Santorum wants to convert our current legal system into one that requires our laws to be in agreement with religious law, not unlike what the Taliban want to do in Afghanistan.

Santorum is not hiding this. The only reason you may not be aware of it is because up until his recent surge in the polls, the media were ignoring him. However, “Santorum Two” was out there telling anyone who would listen.

He told a crowd at a November campaign stop in Iowa in no uncertain terms, “our civil laws have to comport with a higher law: God’s law.”"

Also:

So, what type of nation might the United States be under Rick Santorum’s Sharia law?
1. Rape victims would be forced to give birth to the rapist’s child. Santorum has stated that his religious beliefs dictate that life begins at conception, and as a result, rape victims would be sentenced to carrying the child of the rapist for nine months.
2. Gay marriages would be annulled. Santorum recently declared that not only does he oppose gay marriages, but he supports a federal constitutional amendment that would ban them, invalidating all previous gay marriages that have legally been sanctioned by states and thus callously destroying marriages and thrusting families into chaos.
3. Santorum would ban all federal funding for birth control and would not oppose any state that wanted to pass laws making birth control illegal.
4. No porn! I’m not kidding. Santorum signed “The Marriage Vow” pledge (PDF) authored by the Family Leader organization, under which he swears to oppose pornography. I think many would agree that alone should disqualify him from being president.

The more you read about the man, the more angry any intelligent person becomes. And the thought that this man has people who vote for him is frightening. Just think about the content of this article:

A Long List of the Most Terrible Things Rick Santorum Has Ever Said

Example:

On contraception: “Many of the Christian faith have said, well, that’s okay, contraception is okay. It’s not okay. It’s a license to do things in a sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be.”

Also relevant:

Santorum’s wife’s abortion was different, you see.

This page explains why all rational, intelligent people fight against religion:

What atheists are really concerned about

Rick Santorum demonstrates why religion must be dismantled.

    The possibility that Santorum might be elected is a reflection of the country as a whole. Just like the Bush’s three terms. We elected him, not me personally, but we the country.

    It’s a lost cause. The ignoramuses outnumber the free thinkers and the same religious ignoramuses breed profusely, comfortable in their beliefs.

    I’m not sure what the solution is, but I’m deeply, deeply saddened. My depression is killing me… have to go work out now…..

    I honestly hope we don’t live in a world where this jackass could get elected. I think he’d get crushed in a national election. Yeah, there’s a lot of nutjobs that support him, but their numbers are constantly dwindling, and ours are growing. Candidates like Santorum represent the death throes of christian politics – hopefully.

  4. on 06 Jan 2012 at 4:24 pm 4.DPK said …

    Most of these born again nut jobs are simply pandering to get elected, but I think Santorum, like Palin, is the real deal… a truly deluded, bat shit crazy, and totally dangerous whack-job. I share your hope that the nation on the whole would never elect him. But, no one ever lost any money underestimating the stupidity of the average citizen.

  5. on 06 Jan 2012 at 7:29 pm 5.RJ said …

    DPK, my thoughts exactly as far as RS being the “real deal” (actually believes the stupid shit he says) while the others were just blatantly pandering (the one whose pandering was most laughably obvious was Bachmann).

    The good thing here about Santorum is now that the national spotlight has finally swung in his direction, his “truly deluded, bat shit crazy, and totally dangerous whack-job” ideology will be exposed on a much grander scale, and it will surely be his undoing.

    That and the fact that he comes across as a whiny, simpering dweeb.

    George Washington closely parallels Santorium in his political views. At this point we probably don’t deserve a real leader of character and substance. We deserve what we now have. A regime that will bankrupt America in just a few short years.

    Rick Santorum focuses on gay marriage

    “For the second time in as many days, Rick Santorum waded into the issue of gay marriage, suggesting it was so important for children to have both a father and mother that an imprisoned father was preferable to a same-sex parent.”

    Rick “Frothy” Santorum is completely insane. The very thought that this person is even running for the office of the President of the United States is extremely scary.

  11. on 07 Jan 2012 at 5:23 pm 11.DPK said …

    The fact that he can oppose abortion even when the mother’s life is in danger or in the case of rape, and yet his own wife had a 2nd trimester abortion to save her life says a lot about his ability to divorce his thought process from reality.
    As far as social security, not even saying he’s wrong or right on cutting benefits… just you have to be insane to publicly come out and say you are in favor of cutting people’s social security benefits when you are trying to get nominated to run for president. Naive, or bat shit crazy, either way, not someone you want to have their finger on the big red button.

    Santorum Named One Of Three “Most Corrupt” Senators In 2006

    “In 2006, Rick Santorum, less than two months before suffering one of the worst losses in Senate history, was named one of three “most corrupt” Senators by CREW, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington”

  14. on 07 Jan 2012 at 10:35 pm 14.A said …

    CREW is funded by a long list of left-wing organizations and foundations.

    George Soros’ Open Society Institute gave $250,000 to CREW in 2008, which reported revenue of $3 million and a staff of 13 employees that year. Soros is a well-known funder of left-wing nonprofit groups. Other beneficiaries of Soros’ money include: the Center for American Progress, Media Matters for America, America Coming Together, and MoveOn.org.

    The Democracy Alliance made an early donation that helped breathe financial life into CREW. Members of this collaboration of liberal activists and labor unions, include George Soros, Peter Lewis, Rob Reiner, Norman Lear, and Drummond Pike (of the progressive Tides Foundation).

    As one of CREW’s largest donors, Democracy Alliance has an unmistakably partisan agenda. It was founded in 2005 by a collective of at least 80 millionaires and billionaires for the purpose of moving America to the left ideologically.

    Democracy Alliance founder Rob Stein told a Democratic Party national convention panel in August 2008 that the Alliance “over the past 30 months has put about $110 million into 30 groups.

    CREW executive director Melanie Sloan was a regular guest on Al Franken’s Air America talk show.

    Following the 2010 election, the Democracy Alliance held a conference at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Washington, DC. One attendee told a Politico reporter who managed to get in, “The agreement is that everything that goes on here is confidential.” In attendance were many Democratic donors and left-leaning activists. Also in attendance was CREW’s Melanie Sloan. CREW was also reportedly one of the organizations represented at the conference. Sloan refused to comment on her participation.

    In addition to Soros, Democracy Alliance members who fund CREW include Tim Gill (the Gill Foundation), Albert Dwoskin (the Dwoskin Family Foundation), Drummond Pike (the Tides Foundation), and Stephen Silberstein (the Stephen Silberstein Foundation).

    The Tides Foundation has donated nearly $200,000 to CREW over the years. Tides was founded by philanthropist Drummond Pike and funds many leftist groups. Pike is also a member of the Democracy Alliance. According to its website, Tides sponsored 677 projects between 1996 and 2006, with combined revenues of $522.4 million.

    The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) gave $75,000 to CREW in 2006. SEIU Secretary-Treasurer Anna Burger is also the vice-chair of the Democracy Alliance.

    In 2008, CREW received nearly $1.8 million—more than half of its total revenue—from 14 foundations, all of them known for funding left-leaning political causes

    “Yeah, you can’t be honest with the American people.”

    Sad, but true. It’s a statistical fact that people with higher educations are more likely to be atheists or agnostics… yet we have no open atheists or agnostics in Congress. Do you think that is because they’re aren’t any, or those that got elected know they can’t be honest about it of they have any hope of winning.

  16. on 08 Jan 2012 at 5:42 am 16.C Woods said …

    DPK: There is one openly atheist Congressman, Representative Pete Stark of California’s 13th district. He is 80 years old, so he probably won’t be in Congress much longer.

    I’m sure there are other atheists or religious skeptics, but without the courage to admit it. After all, job one of any member of Congress is to get re-elected.

    My husband and I absolutely hated Bush II, but if I had a choice between him and Santorum, I’d vote for Bush —I want to gag, just thinking about any Bush in the White House again, but Santorum is so much worse —and this is from someone who lived in PA when he was in the Senate. Thinking about him as president makes me want to run away to another country but also stay to vehemently fight every political stance he takes based on religion.

    “Yeah, you can’t be honest with the American people.”

    I was referring to the fact you can’t be honest about the handouts American’s get will have to be reduced or be cut all together due to bankruptcy. We know handouts is how the DNC keep their base dependent on Ds in power.

    No, I would never vote for an atheist. I look throughout history and see how well that has gone. I don’t trust moral relativism. I do remember Peter Starks the atheist D. He attempted to reinstate the draft a few years back.

    I believe Obama mouths words about God but probably is an atheist at heart, or worships himself. Can’t be sure. This guy is easily the worst president in history rivaling Buchanan and the best at dividing a nation. Whoever opposes him gets my vote.

    @ Anonymous

    Do you really believe a study by CREW about a member of the GOP holds any value?

    Sad that you think Social Security is a “handout”… as I recall I have been paying into it my entire life. And social security itself would have been fine if it hadn’t been for Congress robbing it blind for decades. Now we pay the price.
    Handout my ass.

    “It’s a statistical fact that people with higher educations are more likely to be atheists or agnostics”

    If education was an indicator, Obama, Bush and Clinton and the entire last century would have been great presidents. We need leaders. I will take a Washington or Lincoln any day.

    Where did I claim SS is a handout? Nevertheless, in some cases it is a handout. I hope you don’t expect to see any of it. Record numbers on the entitlement programs cannot be maintained. That is fact. What is Obama’s solution? He asks to spend another trillion dollars. That education has served him well.

  20. on 08 Jan 2012 at 11:34 pm 20.DPK said …

    No argument there… I agree the Obama administration has been no better and year after year of deficit spending is not sustainable. Don’t need Yale to teach you that. Yes, we need leaders… and my idea of a leader is not someone who believes in invisible friends or magic. Like Perry who’s strategy for managing the Texas droughts was to “pray real hard”.. you see how that worked out, huh?

    You said, “I was referring to the fact you can’t be honest about the handouts American’s get will have to be reduced or be cut all together due to bankruptcy.” Since the topic was social security, naturally I assumed you were calling social security a government handout. It is not a handout, it is an investment I have been forced to pay into my whole life through payroll and self employment taxes that has been criminally mismanaged and outright stolen from by the Congress for decades. It certainly wasn’t Obama’s doing, now was it?

    “Since this thread is about Santorum, he’s your guy, yes?”

    So what part of “whoever opposes him gets my vote” didn’t you understand? If Santorum is the opponent, yes. Also, Romney, Gingrich, Perry, Clinton, Al Bundy, Tebow, Kobe Bryant, etc.

    We can’t afford a guy giving us 6 trillion dollars more in debt in 4 short years and driving up entitlements to record levels again. Its the economy stupid rings a bell. He doesn’t understand it, he is not a leader, he is a divider and he is a disaster. Anyone who cannot see that is a fool.

    No DPK, it was not Obama’s doing but how is a SS tax holiday helping? How is ridiculous spending helping? Wasn’t he voted in to make things better?

    “If Santorum is the opponent, yes. Also, Romney, Gingrich, Perry, Clinton, Al Bundy, Tebow, Kobe Bryant, etc.”

    If Hitler, the son of Sam, & Mao Tse Tung, were running against, you’d vote against Obama? We’re discussing Santorum and instead of offering maybe any of the other Candidates, you make a blanket statement opposing Obama.

    You might not like my stance of Atheism, but please don’t try to offer any religion is better than Atheism. “I hope Obama fails” guess who said this?

    “Sad that you think Social Security is a “handout”… as I recall I have been paying into it my entire life.”

    As well as the employer who paid the same amount on the employees behalf and now pays more than the employees.

    However, some SS benefits are a handout to so many people who claim to be disabled, but who aren’t, and they will receive far more than they ever paid into the system.

  25. on 09 Jan 2012 at 8:51 pm 25.Al said …

    Hitler and Mao are dead and the Son of Sam is in prison so he is not eligible. Maybe you could offer some candidates who are actually eligible. I thought that to be a given.

    Your stand on atheism is completely indifferent to me. You don’t believe God. OK.

    Guess who said, “If a republican wins the White House I will not work with them”?

    When the claim “I hope Obama fails” was uttered the person was speaking of Obama’s policies. I hope he fails at attempting to spend another trillion dollars we DON”T have. And?

    Do you really want to start a contest on who is worse D or R? Any of you who support a party over America are fools.

  26. on 09 Jan 2012 at 9:35 pm 26.alex said …

    “Al Bundy, Tebow, Kobe Bryant, etc.”. and these are viable candidates, no?

    You’re defending defending Santorium, which is what this thread is all about, and you’d just couldn’t resist taking a shot at obama. why not the queen of england? why not anybody else?

    no, because obama is a nice target. anybody in the republican party has to be better. I could say something similar, like romney, or gingrich has got to be better than santorium.

    remember, the thread. it’s about santorium.

  27. on 09 Jan 2012 at 9:49 pm 27.alex said …

    you’ll prolly point out that the queen is not running and i realized that and my bad.

    the post is about “Rick Santorum: Insane Christian”. I agree. I’m not sure if you believe in god, but your stance of anybody running is better than obama is questionable.

  28. on 10 Jan 2012 at 12:40 am 28.Hell Yeah said …

    Obama haters, have you forgotten that when Obama took office that he inherited the huge crap of mess that Bush did to our country? Do you really think that if any of the republican candidates win this next election, that they will actually do better than Obama to clean up the mess that is still out there from Bush? I can only imagine how much worse our country would be even now if McCain had won the last election. Don’t get me wrong, I am not giving Obama a free pass, but given the situation I am sure he did better than any of the republicans would have. You really want to replace the bad (Obama) with the ugly (any republican)? You complain about the bad when the only other option will be the ugly. I think I will settle with the bad since those are the only two options. The Good = no politicans, the Bad = democrats, and the ugly = republicans. It’s too bad that our politicians now are basically bought out by money rather than actually wanting to help the citizens of our country.

  29. on 10 Jan 2012 at 12:57 am 29.Al said …

    “no, because obama is a nice target.”

    Yes he is. He sucks as the CIC, the POTUS and as a leader. He thinks leading from behind works. Unfortunately, he is my president. So taking shots at the acting POTUS is wrong but against Rick, who more than likely will not even be Obama’s opponent is not? Please!

    Yes, then we have his defenders like HY to blame Bush for Obama’s mess. So old and lame. How many terms before Obama is actually in charge?

    You guys are party loyalist for which you should be ashamed. Well let us just go all the way back to Clinton while we are at it and blames him for the terrorist attacks and the Freedie/Fannie debacle.

    I see it this way since I hate parties.

    Clearly, Santorum is clueless as to what actual religious law says. I mean I can’t imagine the man is so bat-shit crazy that he’d actually want to make it a law that working on the sabbath be punishable by death or that unruly children be stoned to death, or any of the other totally insane and morally reprehensible atrocities called into law by the Judeo-Christian God.

    I mean, does it seem more likely that he actually KNOWS about all these insane crazy biblical laws and is in agreement with them to the point that he would make them into his own crazy laws? Or is it more likely that he is simply ill-informed about what the bible actually SAYS regarding laws, and is just an ignorant fool for going around saying this crap. That requires some kind of intellect and forethought… neither of which Santorum appears to possess.

    It’s disturbing that people would vote for him not on account of how he plans to address items such as the economy, unemployment, and so on, but simply because he claims to share the same delusion regarding a magic man in the sky.

    For those of you that cry “why can’t you just leave us alone [to spread our ignorance]“, that’s just one good reason. It’s also a prime example of why American politics and education are derided in other parts of the developed world.

    Yes, we vote for a Prez like we vote for American idol. Look what we got. American education is bad yet foreigners flock here to partake? Education is faltering on the lower end due to the collapse of the family. When the political machine wakes up to this fact, it will improve.
