Santorum Should Deny His Denial on Obama's Faith

The link I've provided below gives you some pretty complex sides to this issue. I really do not care how screwed up Santorum gets in his campaigning. It's too bad that he has to back-pedal like this though.

Here's the crux of the matter for me. Santorum is saying that he is not attacking Obama's 'Christianity', only his "worldview". Give me a break. Christianity is indeed wrapped up in having a Christian worldview. If a person does not have that view, than he is not thinking or behaving as a Christian.

While I fully understand that thinking or behaving as a Christian, does not make one a Christian, and that not all Christians immediately adopt the Christian worldview, I am not prepared to assume that someone who says he is as steeped in the faith and keeps referring to it as much as Obama does, can possibly still hold the worldview that he does. And thus, while I am not to judge his personal status as a saved individual or not, I can certainly judge his actions and words. And Santorum should be able to do likewise, just as his actions and words are judged in return, as are mine.

The problem once again seems to be "PC" or "political correctness". Santorum is thinking he'll lose many votes if he comes and out and attacks Obama's faith. And he well may do so. But ideally he should be able to attack Obama on the grounds that the current White House incumbent is not thinking or talking or acting (just think of his views on abortion and homosexuality alone) as a Christian must. Enough said.

Santorum, please smarten up or go down like the rest of them.
