    When it comes to the separation of church and state, presidential hopeful Rick Santorum says John F. Kennedy got it all wrong.

    When Kennedy was running for president in 1960, some voters worried that the Vatican could soon be running America. Anti-Catholic paranoia has thankfully cooled off since, and now Santorum is facing a much different playing field. While Catholics themselves may not be flocking to support him, Santorum's traditional Catholic values - and willingness to act on them politically - inspire the evangelical Christians that the broader GOP takes for granted.

    I have no mystical nor occult beliefs. I don't believe in ghosts or spirits. Or Tinkerbell for that matter. Nothing superstitious. Not even astrology. Even though I look at my "sign" in the papers and read fortune cookies. It's fun. But I don't believe it's real.

    To want to push magical beliefs onto me is something I will fight against. It's wrong. Period. I don't usually believe in absolutes. But this is one.

    If that guy didn't put me to sleep he would scare me with those rationalizations for a Christian centered government.

    Don't sell him short. A lot of right wingers like him and his message of God and hate.

    I liked last night when Santorum was telling us how much Iranian civilians love the US. I believe that just as I believe they especially love US political hacks who specialize in anti-Iran propaganda and can't stop insisting we bomb them.

    The funny thing about that is he repeated that meme in today's debate as to why military action was necessary against Iran.

    Then went on to say that President Obama is a secular President and unfit to lead the nation because of that.

    Iranians love Americans. They are as fun loving as we are..what they hate is American government. Like most people in most nations..they are patriotic. And they don't like to be messed with by invaders.

    I see that you have no idea what a theocratic government is. You simply don't know.

    You all can fix this. LEARN.
