Santorum: Obama Hostile to Christians

From: Creative Minority Report

Senator Rick Santorum yesterday called Obama's administration "hostile to people of faith, particularly Christians, and specifically Catholics" according to the LA Times.

Good on Rick. Catholics need to beat this drum until this country wakes up. And right now Rick Santorum still has microphones following his every move. I hope it continues because:
1) I want Santorum to win.
2) We need someone pointing out how awful Obama is on religious liberty...and
3) Rick Santorum is the only man in America who still uses the word "poppycock." And I for one would like to see that word make a comeback.

"That's just a bunch of poppycock," Santorum told reporters when asked about White House Press Secretary Jay Carney's statement that the administration was willing to work with religious groups to address their concerns. "I mean that's just ridiculous. Mr. President, we're not that stupid."...

For Santorum, Carney's remarks at a White House briefing offered an opening to press his case that Obama administration rules on government-mandated health plans will force the Catholic Church and other religious employers to provide birth control despite moral objections.

Carney said misreporting had led some to overlook an exemption for churches and houses of worship. He also said the administration would work with religious groups to strike a balance between healthcare for women and the religious tenets of their employers, a pledge that Santorum dismissed as bogus.

"The administration saying, 'Oh, it's just a misunderstanding,' is just a bunch of bull," Santorum said, adding: "Guess what? They do provide some protection for some religious groups -- just not Catholics."

Santorum called Obama's administration "hostile to people of faith, particularly Christians, and specifically Catholics."

"I'm not going to stand for it," he said.
As long as Santorum's voice is being heard I think it's a good thing. The Obama administration is terribly anti-Catholic and this needs to be a HUGE issue in this campaign. And I'm just not sure Romney's got the poppycocks to beat the drum on this issue. He's mentioned it a few times but something tells me that religion isn't going to be something Romney's going to want to talk about a whole lot.

Obama must be stopped. His teeth have been bared. He is seeking to destroy religious liberty in this country because it'll appeal to his base in an election year. Unless we push back, unless we shout this administration down religious liberty will be lost.

Look at the firestorm Planned Parenthood was able to create when a non-profit decided not to grant them a few hundred thousand bucks.

Currently there's 5,270 news stories that come up on a Google search using the terms "Komen and Planned Parenthood." But Google news only shows 285 stories on stories using the search terms "Catholic Church" and "HHS mandate."

Yup. That's us getting our you know whats handed to us. The media is not going to help us out with this issue. We're on our own. We must do everything we can to reclaim our religious liberty in this election. So much is at stake and it's an uphill battle. And we have few allies. We must fight this battle.

We've got raise such poppycock that the media can't help but notice us. We must continue blogging about this. Tell your friends. Heck, tell your enemies. Much is at stake and we must promulgate the message that WE WILL NOT COMPLY.
