Santorum: "America Belongs to God"

Santorum: "America Belongs to God" | Right Wing Watch



"We're equal only in the eyes of God."

"Government telling us what to do.  Taking freedom away."  

In reference to abortion: "We're gonna take that decision away from you.  We're gonna take that power away from you to make that decision."

"Or in the issue now recently of marriage that their gonna take that power away."

"The judiciary cannot create life and it did not create marriage. And it has no right to redefine either one of them."

First of all, we are all equal in the eyes of the law.  Your god has not part of it.  Secondly, I am getting tired of hearing religious conservatives talk about "tyranny" and "taking freedom away" in reference to the government when they do not agree with the laws.   In fact they wish to institute laws that would do exactly that.  

Their imaginary god did not create life nor marriage and they have no right to impose that belief on the entire country.  It is wrong and illegal.  Of course, that doesn't matter to them.  They don't actually care about the Constitution, the law or you.  

As a citizen of Pennsylvania I am familiar with Santorum.  He is a theocrat.  Watch for newly elected Senator Pat Toomey (R-PA) to make similar statements at some point.

True. Don't hurt yourself patting your own back. I'm still waiting for a post where you...ya know...write something.
