Lobbyists Running Santorum's Faith-Based Charity
WTAE TV Pittsburgh ^ | March 8, 2006 | Jim Parsons

Sen. Rick Santorum calls himself the Republican point man on lobbying reform in Washington.

But Santorum's reform plan doesn't deal at all with lobbyists running charities on behalf of members of Congress.

Good thing for the Senator, because Team 4 has discovered that's exactly who's in charge of his charity, Operation Good Neighbor.

Santorum has been handing out lots of checks from his charity, Operation Good Neighbor, since he formed it in 2001.

"To me, it was part of a mission that I set out, which is I'm a great believer in the non-profit sector. I strongly believe we have an obligation to try to get more money into that," Santorum said.

But Santorum's charity has also put money -- $216,000 -- into unexplained travel and meetings through 2004.

It’s not for me, you or the author to forgive Newt. That’s between Newt, his wives and God. It is utter nonsensical liberal bullcrap to claim that a faithful man is an untrustworthy sinner because he is a faithful man.

I don’t hide behind God. Openly I submit myself to Him.

You’re speaking with a double tongue, and this darkens your credibility. First you accuse me of blasphemy, then you say I’m “hiding” behind God.

One cannot overstate the fact that we are all sinners, and that faith in God starts with repentance. Take this into your heart. We all have to repent, whether we obey the seventh Commandment or break it.

I am telling you the truth!

that’s not what the poster said, and I think you know that. and if it’s between Newt and God, why don’t you just stay out of it and let it go? Listen, I’ve received enough of your hate and vitriol for a lifetime, you even made me cry once, I am ashamed to admit. but no more. You are a pharisee, just like Santorum, The Perfect One, as you and he both consider him. Have at it. I know the gospel of grace, I live the gospel of grace, I spread the gospel of grace, and people like you have been substituting their whited wall persona for the efficacy of Christ’s atonement since He was still here. so have at it and hate at me away. that doesn’t change the truth of the living gospel.

I apologise for making you cry. But I don’t hate you even a little bit. Last post to you. God bless.
