It was different 50 years ago. People were in a panic about JFK -- the first catholic president -- inflicting his church's views into politics.
Now it's the essence of Pope Santorum's campaign.
/ Satan / The Devil and his Red Pitchfork apparently are attacking the country! The US
needs an exorcism! Call for The Pennsylvania Pope to rescue us, and
declare War on Hell! Where's Linda Blair and the pea soup when you
His church doesn't like birth control -- this is not abortion
we're talking about folks, it's just birth control! -- and so insurance
companies must not offer these types of women's health services to
people who work for catholic schools and hospitals, even though
thousands of them ARE NOT EVEN CATHOLIC. Doesn't matter. Little Ricky
Santorum has decided NO BIRTH CONTROL FOR YOU! Kinda like the Soup Nazi,
but for family planning.
Interesting that in all the polls I've
seen, the most important issues in the eyes of voters are jobs and the
economy. Not even 1% say The Devil or birth control are the most
pressing issues of the day.
But don't let that stop Mr "Something's Burning Down There" Santorum.
