Religious freedom for the rest of us

I believe GOP hopeful Rick Santorum when he says he wants to bring religion into government, but it is no coincidence that Santorum’s religious views mirror those of his church.

If the Pope decreed one day that the so-called morning after pill was okay to be used in cases of rape of a minor by a terrorist, wouldn’t Santorum then support this to also be part of U.S. law?

I respect Santorum’s personal views on social policies only so far as he doesn’t blindly follow someone else’s social policies when it comes to laws for the rest of us.

How is Santorum any different from say a Muslim presidential candidate dedicated to changing our laws to conform to some Imam’s interpretation of Sharia law?

Our nation was built upon the foundation of religious freedoms; not upon the imposition of any particular set of religious beliefs on others.

Sanctimonious Santorum

What GOP hopeful Rick Santorum misses in his recent theological attack on President Obama’s pro-environmental stance is an understanding that the “dominion over the earth” God gave man in Genesis 1; God takes away after The Fall in Genesis 3: “…cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life….”
