Robertson's Faith Lies in Santorum

With every remaining breath that Pat Robertson has left, he spews forth the absolute worst of ignorance known to man.  Take a look:


This "chorus" of negative comments about Rick Santorum that Robertson refers to, is simply a responsible blogosphere, and sometimes the media, reminding the general public who it is we're really dealing with.  Saying that the man - Santorum - is simply bringing faith into politics is the wildest of understatements.  Yes, the current political climate of our country makes it necessary for me to have to listen to politicians wax-poetic over their faith.  But this Santorum fellow is our worst nightmare; he's attempting to bolster his campaign with some ancient, maniacal, brutal, and misogynistic version of Christianity because he thinks that will get him more votes.  Not to mention that Santorum has never quietly insisted he's a man of faith and left it at that.  I would go so far as to say that what Santorum would consider himself a proper steward if he could replace the Constitution with the King James Bible.  (I couldn't help myself, Santorum just loves to use the word, "steward".)

As a matter of fact, when it comes to wearing his religion on his sleeve, I'd say the guy makes Dubya look like a Benedictine monk.

Anyway, in Robertson's mind, our society is moving from the criticism of a religious lunatic who's running for President, and straight into a secular atheist dictatorship.  Well I have but one question, Pat...  Are you out of your Christian mind?  Criticizing a Presidential candidate over his overtly religious comments does not correlate to a society on the verge of a dictatorship.  It's the absolute opposite!  And Pat, surely you must realize that there are several secular European countries that enjoy much more freedom than the United States, with some of the lowest crime/prison rates on the planet, lowest homicide rates, lower rates of teen pregnancy, lower abortion rates, higher education rates, and higher per capita incomes - all with a predominately atheist society.

Give Christians like Pat Robertson and Rick Santorum what they want, and we'll be headed right back into a religious, Christian dictatorship.  But both Pat and Rick would love that, I'm sure.  Of course, anyone with a remedial understanding of history would realize that humanity has already tried that kind of governing on more than one occasion.  And it didn't work out to well for the masses.
