“You stood with a guy ….you knew, shared your values, and was going to go out and work for you to make sure this country was free and safe and prosperous based on believing in free people and free markets and the free economy and, of course, the integrity of the family and the centrality of faith in our lives.”

    If you are only looking for someone with Christian values you would vote for Ron Paul. Santorum is acting like he is the strong Christian candidate but from what he has done in the past he is not that strong of a Christian. When he was campaigning he advocated killing of Iranian scientists that were working to develop a bomb. I believe his statement was ” The killing of Iranian scientists is a wonderful thing.” In my church that is against the commandment. Thou shall not kill. That would seem like a poor example of the moral high ground.

    You are right except your statement about “thou shalt not kill.” The Ten Commandments given at Sinai to the Hebrews and never changed by God says “Thou shalt not MURDER.” Not “kill.” Big difference. Check the original Hebrew.

    Yep, the Bible makes it clear that God loves a good mass murder.

    All voters should know Ricky’s full history. Why would any person running for elected office want to bring their religion into our American government? Ricky should enter a religious vocation with honesty.
