My future prediction: faith and family values will win elections with the promise that the government will be put to task to reinforce these values. Then, when a particular denomination gains significant numbers (say, Evangelical or such) they will enforce their morality and the other denominations will say `um... what - we have religious freedom, right... or, wait, we voted to repeal that`.

So go ahead America, vote to have your faith and values codified into our government. At least, you think your denomination will come out on top... but be ready to accept what comes when it isn`t the `winner` of the faith and family values legislation.

The last thing Barack Obama did in 2011 was sign a bill that eliminates due process for anyone suspected of terrorism in America.
Now, what do you suppose a country completely controlled by Christians would think about free-thinkers, agnostic and Atheist people?

Scary thought. :( Don`t like the moronic notion that dinosaurs walked the earth with humans? You follow science? How dare you think the world is older than 6000 years! Blasphemy! Do you dare question the bible? You are now a threat and will be removed.

Which one? Most are mutually exclusive.

I have too. It`s either because:
a)It`s harder to be caught in a lie that way, or
b)He went to the Kristen Stewart school of acting.

Hey American believers, why not call for a big convention, where you agree on few standpoints on which to build a moral nation? I`d watch that.
Do the Mormons sit on the "Christian" side?
Has the Pope a say?
Are women allowed?

elderban, separation of church and state is actually in the consitution, just not the U.S. constitution. It`s in the Soviet constitution, Article 52 -- look it up.

Anyway, much rather have Santorum`s values than those of some lawless Kenyan Marxist. Is November here yet?

This is the same man who tells us that Muslims want to impose Sharia law on American citizens.

@TheShgn2: I hate to break it to you, but the "separation of church and state" is nowhere in the constitution. It only states "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof...", which basically means that the government cannot set up a national religion, nor can they keep others from practicing any religion they choose. That being said, if the government chooses to, say, display the Ten Commandments at a courthouse then they must also leave the option open to other religions to post their "commandments" as well, whatever they may be.

Santorum? Isn`t that the frothy mix of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex?

as gerry said....hey stupid....it`s in the constitution. Obama isnt saying he`s denouncing religion. he`s just following the constitution. very simple. it is in the constitution so we wouldnt have to have arguments like this...."oh well im *insert religion/non religion* and we are better than you heathen/stupid *insert religion/non religion*"

Jesus drating christ. If the GOP canidates do not stop talking about how god needs to be in schools and in government, I`m going to go crazy. First of all, separation of church and state is one of basic foundations of America. Secondly, if they let schools start teaching religion, they have to teach all of them, including Islam, which you know Republicans don`t want. Are they completely retarded? I don`t like Obama, but he seems to be the least retarded person running for president this year.

Like most "conservatives" Santorum only believes in limited government when he feels like it.

Oh, and how stupid do you have to believe that Ralphy Reid supports schools teaching the values they teach in mosques? Wow.

One side asks for a freedom to do as they please. The other asks for a freedom to control others.

It`s too bad that those values taught at churches, synagogues and mosques are in conflict with each other... you might as well vote for that nut, Ron Paul.

Schools should teach reading, writing & `rithmetic. NOT values.
Parents should teach values, not the governement.
Keep church out of school.
