Oh, Lord, It’s Hard To Be Humble…

He’s either a stooge funded by the powers-that-be to satiate the evangelicals and Tea Party movement, or, he’s presently the most dangerous man in America.

John F Kennedy’s speech on the separation of church and state made him ‘nearly throw up’. Santorum is an evangelical’s dream come true. Probably his first act on becoming president would be to place a full size crucifix over the portal to the White House.

Thankfully, it’s unlikely he’ll ever see the inside of the Presidential abode, except as a visitor. Knowing full well there are enough, sane, independent voters out there to ensure it won’t happen, the powers that control the Republican Party are surely feeding the far right extremists with him until such time as Mitt Romney secures sufficient support to ensure his nomination.

It’s interesting to note they’ve already nobbled the maverick candidate, Newt Gingrich. He’s been chased down, roped, and hog-tied.

Rick Santorum doesn’t realize he’s dangerous. He’s simple enough to truly believe the words that come forth from his mouth. But, those who believe they have God on their side are always dangerous. After all, God never confirms or denies such things, leaving the divinely possessed wholly convinced of their ‘specialness’ – until something happens to dampen their faith, like losing a war, or maybe, an election.

It’s a fact of history. Every nation that’s ever gone to war has firmly believed God is on their side. History also tells us that God is invariably on the side of those with the biggest tanks, best trained army, and most technologically advanced weaponry.

If God’s a betting man, my guess is He’s pretty savvy.

Which is exactly why poor old Rick Santorum is deluding himself. I mean, just look at him…

… if you were God, would you put your money on this man?

  1. I feel certain he matches your first sentence RJ: “a stooge funded by the powers-that-be to satiate the evangelicals and Tea Party movement”.

    The fact that, if figures are to be believed, there are millions of voters who lap up his highly dangerous idiocies, is what really makes the blood run cold.

  2. You are very dangerous. You almost make it believable. All this and about guns. It must be quite a burden to know everything about everything. You need to take a step back.

  3. Andy – either it’s the truth, and therefore believable, or Mister Santorum would make a good US president. Apparently you believe he would. I’d be more interested in knowing why that’s so. Or, are you the sort of person who wishes to impose your will on the rest of humanity, suppress the right of women to control their bodies, and live in a theocratic state with controls similar to Iran or Yemen, Afghanistan, Somalia, Sudan, Saudi Arabia, Mauritania, or Oman? That’s what Mister Santorum would like to make of America, only Christian of course, not Muslim.
    Here’s why I don’t like Mister Santorum: like many after 9/11 he overreacted to the attacks by labeling whole nations as Islamic fascists; he views ‘intelligent design’ as a plausible theory when it isn’t, and regards evolution as a dodgy theory, when it’s now accepted as an established scientific fact; he would suppress the hard fought rights of women; he supported Sarah Palin as McCain’s choice for vice president, which demonstrated a serious lack of character assessment; he wishes to curb higher education because “The indoctrination that is going on at the university level is a harm to our country…” (It’s nothing like as harmful as the indoctrination going on in the churches); he would ban contraception, describing it as “a license to do things in a sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be.” (Presumably according to the doctrines of his Catholic Church); he considers the right of privacy NOT part of the Constitution; he believes all gay people to be pedophiles and bestialists; he would wreck the environment to satisfy America’s crazed lust for oil; he would take America into another unwinnable war – this time with Iran – and, he is yet another idiot who prefers to denigrate the scientific evidence on global warming rather than face the problem. No doubt he hopes that God will relent and just take it away.

    Incidentally, I never mentioned guns in this article, but as you did I will point out that Mister Santorum is yet another Christian gun nut. Where in the Bible does it state that Jesus Christ packed a weapon?

    “Blessed are the peacemakers.”

    Perhaps, my friend, it’s you who needs to take a step back.
