Sin and Santorum







"In every society, the definition of marriage has not ever to my knowledge included homosexuality. That's not to pick on homosexuality. It's not, you know, man on child, man on dog, or whatever the case may be." Senator Rick Santorum

Is this guy for real? Oh yeah, Bigtime. He's getting more powerful--and therefore more dangerous--every day. And I've been getting more concerned that no one seems to be taking the threat Rick Santorum poses to our freedoms and liberties seriously.

Then I got a mailing the other day entitled Help Expose Rick Santorum. Here's what it said:
Today we are proud to unveil a brand new website - SantorumExposed.com.

Launched by The Lantern Project, an independent political organization under Section 527 of the Internal Revenue Code, our mission here is pretty simple: to shine a light on the positions, agenda and often offensive statements of Pennsylvania's U.S. Senator Rick Santorum, and to let the facts speak for themselves.

Check out the extensive
issues section. Watch the videos. Read "Rick on the Record." Join us by signing up for email updates.

Then help us to expose Rick Santorum.
Send us information. Post on the Blog. Forward this email to your friends, family members and colleagues and ask them to get involved, sign up for email updates and tell their friends about us, too. That's how, together, we'll build a vibrant community.

We'll be sure to keep you informed and, with your involvement in this community, we'll stand as a powerful voice, exposing Rick Santorum to everyone who cares that his extreme agenda and his harsh and often hostile brand of politics has sought to divide us, coarsened our public conversation and simply failed to improve the lives of most Americans. It won't be easy, but when we all join together, we absolutely will succeed.


Well. I can only say: Bravo. And if you still have any doubts about the dangerous mind of the Junior Senator from Pennsylvania, I'll let Santorum speak for himself:

On poor, unwed mothers:
"The notion that college education is a cost-effective way to help poor, low-skill, unmarried mothers with high school diplomas or GEDs move up the economic ladder is just wrong."

On a woman's right to choose:
"But unlike abortion today, in most states even the slaveholder did not have the unlimited right to kill his slave."

On working mothers:
"And for some parents, the purported need to provide things for their children simply provides a convenient rationalization for pursuing a gratifying career outside the home."

On Senate Democrats and the filibuster:
"I mean, imagine, the rule has been in place for 214 years that this is the way we confirm judges. Broken by the other side two years ago, and the audacity of some members to stand up and say, how dare you break this rule. It's the equivalent of Adolf Hitler in 1942, "I'm in Paris. How dare you invade me. How dare you bomb my city? It's mine."

On priests molesting children:
"In this case, what we're talking about, basically, is priests who were having sexual relations with post-pubescent men. We're not talking about priests with 3-year-olds, or 5-year-olds. We're talking about a basic homosexual relationship. Which, again, according to the world view sense is a perfectly fine relationship as long as it's consensual between people. If you view the world that way, and you say that's fine, you would assume that you would see more of it."

On why priests in Boston molested children:
"It is startling that those in the media and academia appear most disturbed by this aberrant behavior, since they have zealously promoted moral relativism by sanctioning "private" moral matters such as alternative lifestyles. Priests, like all of us, are affected by culture. When the culture is sick, every element in it becomes infected. While it is no excuse for this scandal, it is no surprise that Boston, a seat of academic, political and cultural liberalism in America, lies at the center of the storm."

On his disastrous Hitler comment:
"I compared it to something that Adolf Hitler didn’t do, as opposed to something he did do. And that’s a big difference. It was an attempt to make a joke. You probably have learned this in your career, I’m still learning that you don’t make jokes using Hitler." [emphasis added]

There you go. Any United States Senator who has to learn not to make jokes about Adolf Hitler is the biggest joke of all.
And if we don't do something to stop him, the joke will be on us.

What gets me is that we heard nothing from the hypocritical son of a gun when his fellow Opus Dei Member was arrested and convicted of spying for years
