Santorum : Choice between Religion and Freedom


Its time to be honest. Thank you Mr. Santorum for stating your platform in a clear and concise manner. It has been a long time since the GOP has stood on its own platform. You should be given credit for standing on the GOP Christian Right Wing principles…..even if you may be doing it just to be elected.

Rick Santorum stands on the Christian platform. My statement to everyone who reads this article is that “The Christian Platform DOES NOT MIX with the Freedom Platform” If you believe that we can have a Christian government AND a Free Country, then I beg to differ.

To prove this point I will use his own platform, his religion, and his own Bible. Let’s begin your education:

Rick Santorum, and every Christian leader will agree with the following statements. They call them declarations of faith.

1) To become a Christian you must “Give your life to Christ”.
2) Every Christian is a “Servant of Jesus Christ”
3) You are “reborn” into a new life as a servant of god. You are no longer the master of your body or soul, you have given that up to God and pray that he keeps you from any act that will offend him.

In their own words, they are relinquishing control……they are giving up ownership and freedom, they are throwing themselves on the mercy of the “god court” and pledging their allegiance.

Those who have serve the military all know about this problem. In the military you serve your country. “God and Country”……….but which comes first? The answer is “country”, but for a Christian soldier this is impossible….they already belong totally to Jesus.

Rick Santorum is a servant of God (If he is really telling the truth about his beliefs) and not a servant of the United States of America. He will try to convince you that he wants to serve America, but even his own book (the Bible) says that this is impossible : Matthew 6:24 : No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other

Whether you are a Christian or an Atheist, the one thing you have to agree is that you cannot have a President who is a PUBLIC SERVANT, who is a Christian. Christians serve Jesus.

Looking at the Bible verse again….Santorum, according to his own book, “despises our country”. He must. America is a diverse society. If he serves our country well he betrays his God. If he serves his GOD well, he betrays those who believe in our Country.

This will happen by his removal of our freedoms. This is the part that makes me sick to my stomach. While Santorum, and all the other GOP candidates sit on their soap boxes and talk about how Obama will take away American freedoms…..it is ONLY Santorum who proudly states his intentions of ending our freedoms. His reasoning is simple…..IT CONFILCTS WITH HIS BELIEFS AS A CHISTIAN.

What he is doing is NOT wrong as far as the structure and rules of our country. We are not a capitalistic country, we are not a socialistic country, we are not a communistic country……we are a democracy. That means we can change. If the majority of people in the USA want to have a Church State, then it is their power to make it that way. Rick Santorum is running on the platform of creating a Church State….a place where everyone , Christian or non-Christian, is subject to the laws of his Church.

As for me…..I am a Freedom-loving America. Give me Freedom….You keep the Death brought on by a Church State to yourself.

Because we are only a two party system, I will be force to look at the 2012 elections in this way:

GOP : Religious State : (Same as Catholic state, Muslim State or Judaism State) No Freedoms

Democrats : Freedoms and Individual Rights : I am not happy with Obama, but at least he will not take away my freedom.
