If Rick Santorum accomplishes nothing else this election cycle, he should be proud that he's made me question my own non-belief. When the world sends you someone so vividly quotable, it becomes difficult not to accept it as providential grace…
GOP presidential hopeful Rick Santorum said…that watching John F. Kennedy's speech to the Baptist ministers in Houston in 1960 made him want to "throw up."
"To say that people of faith have no role in the public square? You bet that makes you throw up. What kind of country do we live that says only people of non-faith can come into the public square and make their case?" Santorum said…Santorum also said he does not believe in an America where the separation of church and state is "absolute."
Santorum distorts the message of Kennedy's speech until it's indecipherable, but it offers an opportunity to challenge Indecision readers to a quote-off. Match the religion-related quote with the Republican politician who uttered it, then weep. Answers below the fold.
