The Fix at the Values Voter Summit

Santorum, who delivered a searing speech at last year's summit focusing on the threat of Islamic extremism, used his remarks this year to emphasize the importance of faith in the public square, telling the crowd that social issues aren't just important in charting the country's course - they're essential to economic freedom.

"We can have no economic freedom unless we have good, virtuous people inspired by their faith," Santorum said. "Limited government can only occur in a society where there are strong families, strong churches and virtue."
Here it comes - fiscal conservative aren't real conservative either. Only the Jesus conservatives are the real ones.

What Sanscrotum went on to say was so appalling:

"John F. Kennedy gave a speech that was necessary to give at the time as the first Catholic to have a serious chance of winning the presidency. ... He said that 'I believe in an America where separation of church and state is absolute.' Well, that never was and never will be the standard in America. Maybe in France, but it's not in America."
He starts with the 'Christian Founders' interpretation of religious freedom. Tossing out everything Jefferson and SCOTUS have ever said on the issue of separation and propagating the United States of Jesus falsehood.

"Go into the neighborhoods in America where there's a lack of virtue. What will you find? Two things. No families. No mothers and fathers together. You will find government everywhere."
Paraphrasing: If the poor urban minorities would just pray, find Jesus, they wouldn't be so hungry. Who needs government 'safety nets' when you have God?

Ban abortions, do nothing to maintain a standard of living, and toss them a Bible.:roll: I'm pretty sure that's what happened in the Middle East. Only it was a Koran.

"When people come out and tell us that we have to put the values issues in the back of the bus, we have to have a 'truce' on the values issues, because the economic issues are paramount -- we can have no economic freedom unless we have good, virtuous moral people inspired by their faith."
Sounds like he's saying, 'Time to get the Tea Party Candidates in line. The GOP club has rules and standards. Can't balance the budget with all these queers around.'
