    I don't know why people call him nuts and what not when he's one of the ones who *more* closely follows his Religion. To me, if you believe these things (Religions) in the first place and follow as "loosely" as most Americans do - you're the ones who are nuts.

    I'm not Voting for him, and I'm not Religious. I'm just honest. In terms of being "Spiritually" guided, he's at least a step ahead of most who claim the same.

    He's not a person that anyone should be voting for, appealing to the nutters in the country isn't going to win him the presidency.

    Sooooooooo......

    Everyone hears voices, and those who listen to those voices are the stable ones, where as those who run the discussion in their mind through the filter of physical observations are :cuckoo:?

    :eusa_think:

    Are you sure about that?

    No, you read that wrong Joe.

    I said that the people who pretend to believe in said Religions but only do so half-assed and half-hearted are the nutty ones. They don't realize the stupidity of their action to "half follow."

    At least he's consistent, is my point. And I clearly did not express agreement with his Religion.

    Sancto sure has cut out a lot of FORMER Americans from his definition of AMERICAN; Protestants, Spanish speaking Americans, gay Americans, READERS who haven't gotten the "banned books" list yet...................

    He's not president material, people shouldn't where their damn religion on their sleeves as a presidential candidate in a diverse country where everyone's faith is different, we are not like Taliban-run Afghanistan, religion should be kept between that person and his/her own God(s), not to divide and conquer to win votes.

    And I agree and disagree, at the same time!~

    I don't want to be under some Religion's "special" rules, but at the same time, I *do* want a candidate running as THEMSELVES and what THEY'RE guided by, so that hopefully the first clause of this sentence WON'T HAPPEN. Feel me?

    Sancto doesn't believe there should be any separation of church from state; at least while he's throwing up, he cannot exclude more Americans.

    I don't give a shat what some candidate's religion is as long as they're fair to others, Santorum has shown himself to be less than fair so he should just step down.
