Rick Santorum thinks you’re stupid

“[On Gay Marriage] This is tantamount to government establishing religion,” Santorum said. “When the United States government comes in and says this is what you are going to believe, this is how you’re going to practice your faith, this is a new religion. This violates, in my opinion, the Establishment Clause in the Constitution that says that Congress shall make no law with respect to an establishment of religion. If the government goes around and tells churches what they have to believe in and what their doctrine is, that is something that is a violation of the First Amendment.”

Bullshit. Unabashed, embarrassing bullshit. I could care less what he thinks of civil liberties versus special privileges. I wouldn’t vote for him regardless. What saddens me, is the his audience doesn’t take him to task for his tactic. Either Santorum is stupid [unlikely] or he thinks that his audience is stupid.

No government entitiy is dictating what a citizen or a church can believe. It’s literally impossible on it’s face, and it’s embarrassing to me as an American citizen, that we have clowns like this on the right, proliferating the airwaves with politically motivated false myths and memes.

So, expanding civil liberties in the face of religious opposition, unwilling to relinquish special privileges…..is tantamount to establishing religion. Yet one religion violating the Establishment Clause is somehow just….but the other alleged ‘religion’ allegedly doing likewise…is bad?

This guy wants to be your President

  1. Yes, Ducky. The bipartisan electorate turned him out of the last office he held. Rejected. A failed pol. Even the Republicans turned him down in the 2012 primary process.

    CI, considering what I know of the current crop of commenters (even including the banned one), I don't think there is much controversy for this post.

  2. He gets attention from both his base, the fundamentalist right [and their media outlets] and passive acceptance from the GOP writ large. My problem isn't with Santorum, it's with the right, who fails to take a buffoon such as this, to task.
