In an interview on Sean Hannity, last night, Sarah Palin had this to say in defense of Santorum.
"They will attack any conservative(s) who boldly proclaims their faith and talks about [the fact that] there is good in the world and there's evil in the world and that's what Rick Santorum was talking about. . . . this was a speech that he gave back in 2008 where he named evil as Satan. And for these lame-stream media characters to get all wee-weed up about that, first you have to ask yourself, 'Have they ever attended a Sunday school class even? Have they never heard of this terminology before?' And that's why they got so, you know, just whacked out about the speech.
Sean, I gave a speech back in 2008 where I asked college and high school students if they would pray for our troops and pray for our efforts overseas in war zones and they ran that tape over and over again in the Vice Presidential race trying to make me sound like a whacko talking about good and evil in our world."
We all know that the current crop of secularist losers have never believed in or participated in the Christian narrative and this includes Barack Obama. It is a fact, alluded to by the Governor, that the media are full of practicing atheists, regardless of their church going habits. Santorum has said nothing of legislating his faith. His "Christian" support is as diversified, theologically, as is his own Catholic Faith, and that is a very important consideration. I personally, do not know a single Christian who would support legislating matters of faith.
The notion that Santorum is a threat to religious freedom is an idiot's argument, a strawman created by an amoral media incapable of [even] identifying its own moral code.
My opposition to abortion is not based on my Christian faith. Rather, it is based on my view of humanity and what is considered "humane." If kicking a dog is "inhumane," killing a defenseless unborn baby is equally so. It is not the Christian who is misguided and illogical, here, it is the mindless humanist who supports this version of genocide.
