Sanitorium Santorum

Proving yet once again he is a man out of touch with the times as well as reality. In fact he is perhaps the most dangerous American politician alive today with respect to scientific inquiry as well as individual rights as as guaranteed in our Constitution.

Excerpts from The Hill article.

Rick Santorum said Sunday that he "wasn't suggesting the president was not a Christian" when he stated on the campaign trail that President Obama's agenda was based on "some phony theology. Not a theology based on the Bible, a different theology."

Rather, Santorum said, he believed that the president held the view of "radical environmentalists" who wanted to shape policy around "things that frankly are just not scientifically proven," like global warming.

And your theological religious beliefs has what basis in science? What a hypocrite.

But despite his comments on the campaign trail Saturday - and earlier suggestions that Obama joined his church in Chicago because "faith is an avenue for power" and that 'the American left… hates Christendom" - Santorum insisted he did not intend to insinuate that the president was not Christian.

"I wasn't suggesting the president was not a Christian. I accept the fact that the president's a Christian," Santorum said.

What a hypocritical liar.

Santorum went on to attack Obama over prenatal screening, arguing that the president's mandate that insurance companies provide amniocentesis testing free of charge was included in the healthcare reform package because health insurers would save money in the long term by encouraging the parents of children who would be born with a disability to abort.

"The bottom line is a lot of prenatal tests are done to identify deformities in uteri and the customary procedure is to encourage abortion," Santorum said.

"We're talking about specifically prenatal testing and specifically amniocentesis which is a procedure that actually creates a risk of having a miscarriage when you have it and is done for the purpose of identifying maladies of a child in the womb," the senator added.

Many have problems with the notion of federally mandated health care Ricky. But just were in the hell is the reasoning that supports your absurdly Neanderthal claim?

"Well, the president supported partial birth abortion and partial birth abortion is a procedure used almost exclusively to kill children late in pregnancy when they've been found out to be disabled," Santorum said.

Partial birth abortion is beyond the shadow of a doubt immoral and reprehensible if used as a means of birth control or convenience. Most all would agree. What if however there is a circumstance(s) that may actually have a ethical and rational justification? More to the point Rick, where is your rationale to justify your otherwise absurd statement with respect to the President's position? In case you (and those like you) have forgotten the President has two lovely daughters I am quite sure he loves very much. Therefore isn't it reasonable and rational to believe he has thought about the same issues any loving parent has considered?

Santorum is nothing more than a pontificating hypocritical liar deserving of being sent to wherever Neanderthals go to find solace in their lack of knowledge and ability to think rationally.
