• Rick Santorum Explains Equality

    Rick SantorumLadies and gentlemen, your freshly-crowned Iowa caucuses winner Rick Santorum

    At his last town hall before South Carolinians vote, Rick Santorum was discussing the concepts of freedom and equality that the nation was founded on and said the concept of equality "doesn't come from Islam" or "Eastern religions." Instead it comes from "the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob."

    "I get a kick out of folks who call for equality now, the people on the left, 'Well, equality, we want equality.' Where do you think this concept of equality comes from?" Santorum asked the enthusiastic crowd packed into a restaurant here. "It doesn't come from Islam. It doesn't come from the East and Eastern religions, where does it come from? It comes from the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, that’s where it comes from."

    Utterly chilling.

    Imagine how hard Rick Santorum would fight against equality if he thought it did come from Islam.
