Rick Santorum is high on religion. So high, in fact, that he wants religious institutions like the Catholic Church to have power in government, which would be totally unprecedented in the history of America. Santorum appeared on ABC on Sunday morning and told George Stephanopolis that church and state should not be separate and then proceeded to insult John F. Kennedy’s legacy of upholding the principle of religious tolerance and freedom.

Ladies and gentlemen, here is the man leading the polls for the Republican nomination. I hope this guy gets the nomination, for no other reason than to see how much of a landslide Obama would win by. I'm betting an entire blue electoral map except for Arizona, and a few of the bible-belt states...

If the GOP nominates that joker, might as well get the dirt ready to throw on.

Popes have to be on par with folks like Napoleon and Hitler for the sheer number of people who have died as a result of their orders. And he wants them to have a controling stake in our government.

The separation of church and state is not in the Constitution. That's a fact. It was a statement by Jefferson that leads to intent.

It's funny how the left will use Jefferson's quotes to advance agenda, then, will demonize him as a slave owner and scoundrel when his
well known stance on gun issues are brought up.

Can't have it both ways people.

It's clear what "Separation of Church and State" is. It's an abolishment of an establishment of a state religion. It's ****ing absolutely clear from any study of US history.

Full disclosure; I'm not a Christian.

You're right. I was referring to the fact that the first amendment, or at least the religion portion of it, was specifically set up to keep us from having a national church, which Santorum seems to want to do based of his statement.

Jefferson is probably one of the greatest Americans to ever live. Dude was fluent in Arabic and read/knew the Koran. He had slaves, but back then, most everyone did.

He was absolutely brilliant.

Anytime the candidates show favoritism towards their our brand of religion, that really turns off the voters.
People need to keep their faith in their home, and out of politics IMHO.
I am a christian, and I do not want to hear about it. We need brilliant, sensible, and reliable leadership, not another moral compass lead by the teachings of his or her's pastor or clergy.
That approach might have worked 40-50 years ago, but not anymore.

Jefferson was a great man, all of the founding fathers were exceptional. The separation clause is necessary and another example of Jefferson's brilliance.

The separation of Church and State isn't a new concept, they executed Socrates because of the lack of it.

Faith is a private matter and the separation of church and state must be maintained if you want a non-bias atmosphere for every citizen of the US to obtain an education in.

The influence of religions will always be there anyway, the teachers, students and parents have a faith so it is inevitable that some of that faith spills over into the schools you just have to keep it as neutral as possible to avoid the issue of imposing a belief based idea verses a fact based idea like Mathematics or History. The closest you come in schools to religion is Philosophy which to me is the study of belief based ideas with the notion of understanding both sides of the belief.

I think faith absolutely has a place in government. It influences the way people think and make decisions. However, to want to give an organized body such as the Catholic Church or the Mormon Church actual official power in the government is a complete travesty and goes against the very intent of the first amendment.

CedarPhin

The term "faith" is subjective. Faith in what? For most, it's the faith that they'll get some sort of kickback for voting one way or the other.

It doesn't influence anything anyone does in civic life, special interests do that for them.

CedarPhin

You can't have one person's faith writing policy that will govern millions of people. It's unfair to subject anyone to that. That's how you wind up with the battles over gay marriage and abortion. Total cluster****.

For me, it has zero place. I don't want to live under some law someone writes because he/she feels compelled to do so by his religious beliefs.

You can have your beliefs on your time, but when it's our time, please keep them parked at the front gate.

I agree with Ron Paul, its a states rights issue. If i live in a state that allows gays to marry, i can move to another state that doesnt allow it. But if you let an institution as arrogant as the vatican, gain controlling power of our government. Everybody, gay or straight that isnt catholic is screwed. But thats my opinion.

They're an easy target because they're the the biggest, most organized, and most powerful one. The only really comparable one is the Mormon Church, but the Catholic Church (as an operational body, not necessarily the followers of the religion) has an extensive history of starting wars and brutally persecuting non-believers in the past. Not saying it's right, but it does make them an easy target.
