God Bless America
"I don't care what the liberals say, I don't care what the naysayers say, this nation was founded as a Christian nation . . . We don't worship Buddha, we don't worship Mohammad, we don't worship Allah, we worship God, we worship God's son Jesus Christ."
In Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Rev. Dennis Terry introduced presidential candidate Rick Santorum in this speech asking - no blatantly demanding - non-Christians to “get out” if they can’t accept America for the “Christian nation” that it is. Is it just me or does Santorum as President sound like a disastrous idea? This is not the first time Santorum has danced on the edge of whether he thinks non-Christians have a place in American society. Just earlier this year, Santorum said that the concept of equality did not come from Islam or “Eastern religions,” but rather from the “God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.” According to this HuffPost blog, upon hearing this pastor’s words, Santorum was seen applauding along. Santorum needs to affirm whether he believes in the First Amendment’s free exercise of religion clause and repudiate this pastor’s endorsement. But then again, according to Santorum’s endorsers, what does it matter what I think? I’m only one non-Christian in this clearly “Christian nation.”
