Oh, no, he, didn't.

Santorum says he doesn't believe in separation of church and state.

"WASHINGTON - Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum said Sunday that he doesn't believe in the separation of church and state, adding that he was sickened by John F. Kennedy's assurances to Baptist ministers 52 years ago that he would not impose his Catholic faith on them."

I'm sure all of the other religions are going to be completely fine with this. /sarc


  1. Every single politician claims to adhere to one religion or another in order to appeal to religious groups. How is that separation of church and state?

    How do YOU define this separation?

    Because most secularists would interpret it to mean that no one should get to be religious because the government exists. M

    Most devout people interpret it to mean that thier own religion will be left untouched by government, but they can mess with those other ungodly types.

    And most politicians think it means they can do whatever the hell they want and they can hide behind it as an excuse for thier immoral behaviour being separate and all.

    So what did santorum Mean? I guess hes a politician.

  2. I generally believe that government should not talk about religion at all. I would prefer government be more like a corporation. When I seek employment, religion isn't factored in to that process. Either I'm qualified for the job, or I'm not. Not that my employer doesn't hold religious beliefs, most people do.

    Do I care that money says "in God we trust"? No. I don't care that people are religious either. I just think it benefits no purpose. I don't impose my atheist beliefs on anyone. Most people I know IRL don't even know that I am one. I've only talked about it on this blog a handful of times. And who am I to deny someone a source of comfort(religion)?

    I don't know if this satisfies your question.
