Washington Post Provides Religious Test For Santorum

I’d be nice if some liberal somewhere actually read the Constitution now and then

(WP) That Mr. Santorum believes he has the standing to declaim on the rightness of Mr. Obama’s faith, and whether it is sufficiently Bible-based, is in itself disqualifying.

Funny how Obama’s religion wasn’t an issue in 2008, despite sitting in the pews of a hate preacher for 20 years. But, what the WP editorial board doesn’t like is that Santorum is vocal on his faith and beliefs from a strong Christian point of view, with all those annoying morals.

Richard Cohen further goes on to compare Santorum to a Taliban Mullah

Mullah Rick has spoken. (snip all the way to the end)

Rick Santorum is not, as some would have it, the Republican Party’s problem. The GOP is half the political equation, and so its inability to offer candidates of sound views and judgments is everyone’s problem. We have to vote for someone after all. But when I mull Santorum’s views on contraception, the role of women, the proper place for religion and what he thinks about education, I think he’s either running for president of the wrong country or marooned in the wrong century. The man is lost.

Cohen never mentions the Taliban or Afghanistan (and would never dare, like most liberals wouldn’t, denigrate a real Taliban Mullah), yet, what else are we supposed to think?

I’m starting to think that Liberals are actually very concerned about Santorum getting the GOP nomination, with the ability to beat Obama.

    I’m starting to get a bit sad about the Repub prospects. Now that we are down to basically 2 prospects.

    Santorum robocalls WITH the democrats (which is not bad in of itself) attacking Romney for not supporting the auto-bail out. Which means that Santorum is fully supportive of the auto-bailout deal. geezz. sigh.

    Then Romney says he won’t attack Obama while at the same time crying that Santorum is attacking his record and trying to attract democrats.

    These people make my head hurt and my heart bleed.

  2. Well, that’s the primaries for ya. Remember, though, it wasn’t all peaches and cream for Dems in 2008 and 2004. And was pretty nasty for both parties in 2000.

    Only because George Bush STOOOOOOLE the election from the American people. We had not choice. He took it away from us. It wasn’t fair I tell ya.

    When is someone-Santorum or Romney any of them-when the press attacks their religious background- going to question and provide- clips of Obama’s church of 20 years; one filled with hate speech all the time. Racist hate speech. When he was first mentioned I went to the church website and was able to download/listen to his sermons. HOLY BAT CRAP was it racist, pnot to mention the conspiracy nut crazy stuff he spouted. Naturally, the sermons were soon removed but they were so inflammatory it wasn’t funny. Had the MSM done their job and shown his sermons in full, we wouldn’t be talking about NMP running for re-election today. No one would have been able to overlook how nasty Wright was.
    It should STILL be fodder for this election.

    It’s a non issue because its a democrat.
    You don’t expect Democrats to play by their own rules and be non-hypocrites?

    And, for the media to come out against someone with a religious background,,, would mean that person would necessary have to be conservative-ish.

    Because a conservative religious person is as much a danger to the US as al-Queda remember. Actually, more so, as now Islam is a protected class world wide.
