What’s the exact quote where Santorum said God told him to run? I’ve never heard it.
A lie that smears a whole group with no knowledge of all the members of that group is not “truth”.
Spare me the nonsense, please.
No offense, but it's a national election and
It's the economy, stupid!"
Rasmussen 2012 Daily Presidential Tracking Poll
Barack Obama 46%
Rick Santorum 44% ..GO RICK!
Barack Obama 45%
Mitt Romney 43%
God permits it on order to turn mans heart. It’s a
Aren’t an enormous number of voters members of mainline Protestant churches?
I'm of the opinion that God called me to where I am in my life, and I think any Christian who has struggled to live their lives according to their creed would believe the same. God never literally whispered in my ear, but has communicated to me in many more subtle, and sometimes sublime ways.
If this is the case with Rick, why begrudge him for stating so?
So Manc how does the general election run? Does it always run the exact same way? A way that only you know of? When did Rick say that God told him to run?
You might be hearing a lot about religion right now, but it isn’t going to be Santorum’s campaign day in and day out during the general election. You are scared of a candidate who is religious. You don’t want to hear a candidate talk about religion. Meanwhile, the only thing we should fear about religion taking over is the movement of Sharia Law into our judicial system. It is happening. Meanwhile you cover your eyes and ears, not wanting to hear a thing about religion from Santorum, while Sharia Law creeps into our society.
Goodbye Rick. Dumb politics.
I think you may be correct
If it’s the economy stupid, Obama could very well win re-election. This election will be about freedom, not dollars and cents. If you want economy tune into non-stop mortage and investment talk on your local AM during weekends and leave the rest of us patriots alone.
Santorum: “We look at the shape of mainline Protestantism in this country and it is in shambles, it is gone from the world of Christianity as I see it.”
Mainline Protestantism = National Council of Churches
National Council of Churches President: “Jesus Never said Anything About Homosexuality or Abortion”
SANTORUM SPEAKS THE TRUTH, YET AGAIN!
Who is it that reports on Santorum's campaign?
Where are debate moderators from?
What is pretty much every single question during Santorum/Obama debates going to be about?
Perhaps not politically prudent, but look at what the governing boards of the protestant churches are mandating these days and any christian who bases their beliefs on scripture would have to agree. For example, Methodist churches around here have little gay flags on their church signs.
I'll never fault a candidate for telling the truth.
.——but if he continues down this path he is toast in the general election.........no doubt about it-—
If he loses the atheist vote, we’re toast?
Santorum was right!... He made the speech in 2008 and then Obama was elected!
Santorum was right!... He made the speech in 2008 and then Obama was elected!
How about the atheist vote plus the mainline Protestant vote?
Exactly how much of the electorate is evangelicals + those Catholics that will vote for Santorum (which is very much not all of them)?
Some people on this thread don’t seem to have any clue what “Mainline Protestantism” is or what it’s become. These are the social-justice churches that self-identify as activist left-wing institutions. Whatever voters they have among their 20 million members are already comitted leftists. They might as well be Unitarian Universalists.
what the hell are you on?
Look I have never said I am afraid of Santorum , you then harp on about sharia law.
You seem to like to jump to conclusions instead of thinking, try it next time and you’ll understand what is being said.
shakes head in disbelief
Anyone advocating his candidacy is very little better than an Obamabot.
But those using smear, leftist characterizations and innuendo to destroy the candidacy of good men, both of whom would be an immense improvement over Obama, have now become the enemy. IMO.
1. This was 4 years ago.
2. Santorum is 100% correct regarding spiritual warfare. I don’t care if he gets elected. He is correct.
3. Drudge is Sludge.
For crying out loud, there is a bigger picture here and while it is good for you to point out that you think God told you this and that it is not good for a general election because of the way the media manipulates republicans and their words.
Sanotrum has not been attacked like Newt yet but it is coming and he needs to stay in focus and not get sucked in.
To win a war you have to understand the enemy, if you do not understand the enemy you will lose the war.
Still waiting on an aswer to that one, too.
No, if he only gets the Christian Fundamentalist vote he is toast.
So every voter that is Episcopalian, Lutheran, Methodist, and Presbyterian is a “committed leftist” that can be safely written off?
-—but if he continues down this path he is toast in the general election.........no doubt about it——
The conservatives in the mainline denominations will cheer him on. The socialists will keep hugging trees.
You don't believe Satan is the enemy?
If that is true, then what are we all fighting to save? What's the point? If the only way to get elected any more is to pander to the basest instincts of the morally degenerate and historically ignorant, then aren't we merely rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic?
The vector for those types of people is relentlessly downward. If pandering to them were to work it would simply mean further decay as a nation. But it won't work because they will never accept ANYONE from the Right. Do I really need to remind you about how that McCain candidacy turned out? Do you honestly think "Mr. Electability", Mitt Romney, will fare any better? The so-called "electable" (i.e. liberal) Republican candidates always fail because liberal voters would prefer real leftism (ala Obama) to an imitation from the Right, and conservative voters lose enthusiasm as they are presented with yet another "least bad option."
The founders of this once-great nation knew something that we today seem to have forgotten. While they had built a system of self-government that was without precedent, they realized that unless the nation were populated by a "moral and religious people", to quote John Adams, it would fail. Now, we "enlightened" people of the 21st Century can pretend all we want that faith in God has no place in a Presidential campaign, or at best should be mentioned sparingly and very non-specifically, but we would be fools to think so.
Rick Santorum is right on target. I think he may be the only candidate that truly understands what lies at the core of our troubles. Debt? Massive spending? Incipient socialism? Those are merely symptoms. The disease we suffer from is our lack of focus on and dependence on God. Until and unless the people return to reliance on God, this nation will not recover.
If we instead take the pragmatic path of appealing to the degenerate among us, we will only accelerate and cement our demise.
Ever since sludge put up that Newt hit piece, i’ve been drudge free. Never looked back.
I can tell from your profile you’re not a person of faith.
Collectively, the founding fathers religious views were defined very broadly. Some were, in fact, deists or even atheists and many were more conventional believers as well but they were able to come together to lay out the plan for this great country.
Now we have so-called conservatives hearkening back to the founding fathers and quibbling about religious trivia. The founding fathers, I believe, would be laughing in your faces.
Where in the founding documents and discourse do we find this sort of useless banter? Perhaps it exists, but it appears to me that these wise men knew that they had bigger fish to fry.
I’m a member of a mainline Protestant church and I don’t disagree with anything he’s said.
By your narrow criteria, I am sure that is true!
There’s prudence, and there’s fear. I think you’re too fearful.
Preach the truth loudly and forcefully. You’ll antagonism your enemies, galvanize your supporters, and win over the ignorant.
It’s a winning strategy.
God knows the milquetoast approach hasn’t worked.
Name one founding father that was an atheist. Franklin and Jefferson were about the only deists.
I don’t believe in a literal Satan or a literal hell; and if my president does, I’d prefer he keep it to himself.
I decided earlier today to give Drudge another chance, saw that and skated away. Dirt bag he surely is.
This statement typifies the problem that we are facing. The narrowness of your view defines the majority of the public as "godless degenerates" and yet you can't win an election without them. I personally don't define everyone who is not a white fundamentalist Christian as lost and degenerate and I would want them and expect them to vote for a cause that supports life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness rather than insulting them with irrelevant narrow sectarian quibbling.
“white fundamentalist Christian”
Why the race card?
Or in the case of Algore, black preacher mode.
I was going to define the milieu that I am addressing as "Fundamentalist Christian" and then I realized that there are mainly nonwhite fundamentalist Christians who are ardent Obama supporters and I must acknowledge some whites as well.
I do realize how that statement looks, but it was not intended in that way.
My point is that there are many Conservatives who have tried to define the movement so narrowly that it has no hope of ever achieving its ends.
Nontheless, I apologize for any misunderstanding. One is always stepping into perilous terrain with these types of distinctions.
HUH, I believe the enemy is the MSM, the left wing loons and the obama admin.
If you want to think Satan then all the best but saying saying what you think is not going to get many more votes than off some very very religious folk.
I’;m looking at an election not a religious war and going around around saying this stuff is only going to make the MSM, etc make one look like a nut case
That is what I am on about, know your enemy and how they work and when you do you can win.
Protestant churches also love a rock band in the back of the church; Obama needs a rock band; with a drum set.
