More Santorum craziness...

From Charles Blow in the New York Times:
  • “I’m not about equality of result when it comes to income inequality. There is income inequality in America. There always has been and, hopefully, and I do say that, there always will be.” (said in Detroit, no less, with the highest poverty rate of all U.S. big cities!) He went on, “We should celebrate like we do in the small towns all across America — as you do here in Detroit. You celebrate success. You build statues and monuments. Buildings, you name after them. Why? Because in their greatness and innovation, yes, they created wealth, but they created wealth for everybody else. And that’s a good thing, not something to be condemned in America.”
     
  • Last week, he said that the president was arguing that Catholics would have to “hire women priests to comply with employment discrimination issues.”
     
  • "(Liberals and the president)...are taking faith and crushing it. Why? When you marginalize faith in America, when you remove the pillar of God-given rights, then what’s left is the French Revolution. What’s left is a government that gives you rights. What’s left are no unalienable rights. What’s left is a government that will tell you who you are, what you’ll do and when you’ll do it. What’s left in France became the guillotine.”

Blow also points out that charitable giving (living a Christian life, anyone?) is not high on the list of Santorum's priorities: "He has given the least amount to charity of the four presidential candidates who have disclosed their tax returns. (Ron Paul has not.) His charitable giving was just 1.8 percent of his adjusted gross income. The Obamas were the highest, giving 14.2 percent, even though their income was second lowest. Maybe that’s the imbalance we should praise."

 

And we all know how he feels about women...he's made that perfectly clear.
