Actually it sees to me that he isn’t the one stumbling into a trap so much as those who have suddenly decided to take the leftist position of silencing Christianity.
“the leftist position of silencing Christianity”
We don’t have to silence Christianity, any more than talk of football, the art of renaissance Italy, or trigonometry. I am not like the liberal banishing faith from the public square. I just don’t want precious campaign time wasted on irrelevancies. And, yes, it is irrelevant. For however much Santorum or anyone else’s faith influences his ideology, it doesn’t do so enough to justify him and us sacrificing energy to defend it when we could be infinitely more strategic.
