Think honestly about THIS, please: How do "family values" as you apparently see them, even if the government was able, through Santorum, to influence individual Amerians to practice "family values" -- HOW would it lower the price of gas, fix a horrible education system, reverse government health care, or roll back oppressive regulation that stifles the economy?
Santorum has a lot of talk about what's right and what's wrong morally, and whose fault it is, and on his website, he speaks in general terms about solutions and throughout refers to "families," as if those without families are irrelevant. Newt Gingrich -- who, unlike Rick, has turned things around to the right direction before -- has a well-thought, thorough, strategic plan that will make this country more free, prosperous, and moral.
Please do your DUE DILIGENCE and read for yourself, compare, the positions and political philosophy of Santorum and Newt, instead of letting other people inform you what they're saying. It takes some guts for a Santorum supporter to actually READ Newt's website, just as it takes guts for a Gingrich supporter to read Santorum's website. But the differences are stark and glaring, and clearly, Gingrich is just as good a Christian as Santorum and a much, much better political visionary.
Godspeed Newt Gingrich.
The only reason that you are having trouble separating family values from Christian values is that you seem to have bought into the post modernist relativity of Newspeak.
A family and marriage are not relative terms. It is the relativity and the amorphous definition that creates the confusion over values and degrades both the culture and the institutions, themselves.
I'll be voting for Santorum.
