Rick Sanatorium, as a friend called him – the gift that keeps on giving – the white elephant kind… Today he is backtracking on Obama’s faith and ideology, calling it his world view instead, but in the process gives us some gems of his own – “”I am talking about his world view, and the way he approaches problems in this country. I think they’re different than how most people do in America,” he said in the broadcast interview.
The former Pennsylvania senator said Obama’s environmental policies promote ideas of “radical environmentalists,” who, Santorum argues, oppose greater use of the country’s natural resources because they believe “man is here to serve the Earth.” He said that was the reference he was making Saturday in his Ohio campaign appearance when he denounced a “phony theology.”
“I think that is a phony ideal. I don’t believe that is what we’re here to do,” Santorum said. “We’re not here to serve the Earth. The Earth is not the objective. Man is the objective.””
So MAN is all important – forget about that phony global warming and climate change, or not clear cutting the rain forest so we continue to air to breathe, etc. It’s all about MAN. Of course if we destroy the planet, then MAN will cease to exist. Hmmm. Beer work on that one Rick.
AND: “Santorum said his claim that Obama’s health care overhaul encourages abortions stems from the fact that insurance companies are required to pay for prenatal testing, which he said will result in more pregnant women having more procedures. He specified amniocentesis, a procedure that can identify physical problems in the unborn.
“The bottom line is a lot of prenatal tests are done to identify deformities in utero and the customary procedure is to encourage abortion,” he said….. He said he’s critical of the mandate in Obama’s health care plan that insurers must pay for the tests, not of prenatal testing in general.
“There are all sorts of prenatal testing which should be provided free. I have no problem with that if the insurance companies want to. I’m not for any of these things to be forced,” Santorum said.
OKay, so it’s okay to get pre-natal testing, which promotes abortions, if it’s free. Can we spell contradiction in large bold letters??
