Rick Santorum appeared in a town hall meeting in Plano, Texas last night. Why the guy doesn’t just throw in the towel is a mystery, because there is no way he’s getting the nomination. Not with the crazy things he’s saying. Anyway during the meeting, the GOP candidate did his best to raise fears about the current administration’s “war on religion.”
He spoke about family values and Christian faith. During his speech at the town hall meeting, he continued his assault against President Obama, criticizing the government for requiring contraception to be covered under insurance. He also had a few choice words to say about the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal’s decision, striking down Proposition 8 in California.
He accused this administration of marginalizing “faith in America.” He said, “When you remove the pillar of God-given rights, then what’s left is the French Revolution.”
Hold on a minute. What? Seriously, what is this man saying? Did he just equate the overturning of an unconstitutional law that gives back rights to people who have been discriminated against, taking away rights?
What the heck is this guy smoking?
He went on to say, “What’s left in France became the guillotine…if we…follow the path of President Obama and his overt hostility to faith in America then we are headed down that road.”
So, he just accused the President of taking us down a path that would encourage violence against Christians, regardless of the fact that the president himself attends a Christian church regularly. But, you see? That’s where the “difference” of him comes in. He’s not a “real” Christian. He’s a secret Muslim, and secret Muslims want to destroy America!
How does this man not choke on his own bile? How does he liken giving homosexuals the right to marry as taking away his right to practice his Christian faith? Not only that, but Santorum’s analogy is way off base. The French Revolution happened because people revolted against the government, and the guillotine was used to lop off the heads of pompous fools like him. See, if he’s going to make some crazy theory, at least get the history right, because now he just looks like a fool.
Mr. Santorum needs to stop worrying about what other people are doing and start focusing on his own problems. Therapy might be a good place to start, because this unhealthy obsession with homosexuality is starting to affect his critical thinking.
