Chris James Posted February 26, 2012 Report Share Posted February 26, 2012 To Rick Santorum it doesn't matter what is put forth in the First Ammendment and the intrepretation that has existed for decades giving religion such broad freedoms. No, Santorum seems to think that religion trumps government, and that makes him a very dangerous man. http://www.businessw...t-absolute.html It is certain that he is catering to the religious right wing with such pronouncements, but let's take this a step further. If religious thought should dictate government policy, which religion gets to choose? It certainly couldn't be the Catholics, their leadership is the head of a foreign nation. Being a Catholic, Santorum would probably want his brand of Christianity to take the front seat. Ain't gonna happen. I am reminded that the Catholic Church has enormous assets in this country and are dominant in the health care industry. I have always agreed that churches shouldn't be taxed since they are nothing more than the result of already tithing their congregations. But should religious businesses be exempt? The only legitimate work of a church is the God business, everything else is to make money. Tax the hell out of it. Santorum is a fool that will suffer the GOP into an early grave during this election cycle. I have no political affiliation and I despise the way people expect me to choose between idiots and fools. My only hope for this country is that half the Supreme Court drops dead in the next few years and we get rid of the idiots on both sides of the political spectrum. With all the politics I will have to digest in the next eight months I expect to have a massive case of indigestion by November. Quote Link to comment
