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.

"...except...there are some who happen to think...saying things like God told him to run is a good thing..."

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.

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.

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?

Oh, that's bad.

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.

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.

I agree we republicans excel at eating our own, but I make an exception in Romney's case. I don't see any advantage in electing him president. None.

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.

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.

"Aren’t an enormous number of voters members of mainline Protestant churches?

Most will vote for Obama, because he speaks their language...atheistic socialism, same-sex marriage, anti-Catholic, ProChoice, ProAbortion, wealth redistribution, etc, etc.

Are you happy with a candidate who will lie to people to get elected? I think that candidate is Romney or Obama, either one...it makes no difference.

About 15% of American adults make up Mainline Protestantism, if people are educated enough to know what Mainline Protestantism is...therein potentially lies the problem, I think Santorum is speaking above many peoples level of knowledge, but then again America is responsible for her own choices and if we're stupid enough to not vote for a man because he is the only one telling it like it is, then we deserve our ill fate. Then again, how will people ever wake up to the truth/fact we have this Marxist cooperation between churches, if someone like Santorum doesn't wake us up.

Pray, pray, and pray some more for a 100% ProLife president...we need one now more than ever in history.

I find it "peculiar" how Santorum's name has not YET been entered into the dictionary here on FreeRepublic and hence his name still gets highlighted in spellcheck...hmmm.

"...but if he continues down this path he is toast in the general election.........no doubt about it!!"

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.

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.

Preach the truth loudly and forcefully. You’ll antagonism your enemies, galvanize your supporters, and win over the ignorant.

It’s a winning strategy.

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.

It is not the race card.

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.
