Stop the world, please. I want to get off.

I can't even fathom that this man is being treated differently from a lunatic ranting about the Second Coming on a street corner. In a sane world, people would walk on by, not potentially nominate him for the Presidency.

From Outside the Beltway:
Lashing out on two fronts, Rick Santorum on Saturday questioned President Barack Obama's Christian values and attacked GOP rival Mitt Romney's Olympics leadership as he courted tea party activists and evangelical voters in Ohio, "ground zero" in the 2012 nomination fight.

Santorum, a former Pennsylvania senator known for his social conservative views, said Obama's agenda is based on "some phony theology. Not a theology based on the Bible. A different theology." He later suggested that the president practices a different kind of Christianity.

Is Santorum saying that Obama is a Mormon?

And we think -- or have at least been told fairly constantly by Fox -- that Islam is a religion of hate...
From your earlier post, it seems that Santorum and the Ahatollahs don't differ all that much -- "my religion" is the only true faith and should be mandated throughout the world. At least Romney isn't advocating that everyone become Mormon. And I haven't heard him suggest that everyone should be practicing polygamy.

But I have always contended that Islam is simply 500 years "behind". The "west" [primarily Europe since that was all there was back then!] had their "Enlightenment" in the 16-1800's, roughly 500 years ago. Islam today [let's say for this discussion that it was founded about 500AD] is about where Christianity was in the 17th century. They need an intellectual revolution. I'm not convinced we're not seeing it. "Arab Spring" and all that. Their "intellectuals" can look out and see the better place. They can't stop the Internet, as much as they try. The Europeans had no such models 500 years ago to guide them! They had to make it all up as they went.

We're in a slightly more precarious spot today than were the monarchies of Europe in 1700, as technology now makes possible much more horrific warfare -- the damage a few knights on horseback could do is nowhere near what a few well placed missiles can do -- but ultimately what will end is civilization as they know it...

I want to get off too. I can't believe any of these candidates are taken seriously. You'd think a christian would have a sense of shame.
