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.
