POLITICAL observations & opinions

* Rick Santorum’s unthinking arrogance about his Catholic beliefs is frightening. America is made up of people of many religious faiths, including those with no faith. To think that all of us should follow Santorum’s Catholic dogma is astonishing. Such views have no place in public life, let alone in the Oval Office.

Santorum ... bringing the Pope's law to America

******

Joshua Hersh writes for Huffington Post (2/20/12) …

  • Rick Santorum doubled down on several controversial, and religiously laden, remarks in an interview Sunday morning on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” where he
    • defended his recent claims that prenatal testing results in abortions,
    • and that President Obama’s policies are not “based on the Bible.”
  • In a speech to Tea Party conservatives on Saturday in Columbus, Ohio, Santorum had dismissed Obama’s politics as being based in “some phony theology … not a theology based on the Bible. A different theology.”

LMW COMMENT …

Has anyone ever explained to Rick Santorum that the United States does not have a theocracy … and that its policies are not supposed to be based on the Bible … and that the beliefs of the Catholic Church are not relevant to anyone except those who choose to be members of that church.

Santorum’s unthinking arrogance about his Catholic beliefs is frightening. America is made up of people of many religious faiths, including those with no faith. To think that all of us should follow Santorum’s Catholic dogma is astonishing.

Such views have no place in public life, let alone in the Oval Office.
