US Presidential Wannabe Rick Santorum appeared on fundamentalist Christian TV yesterday to give his ideas of what he thinks are sane propositions once his party assumes power:
Freedom of religion is not freedom from religion
You know, strangely enough, it is. In unrelated news, one plus one equals two! Is America reverting to ‘W’-era stupidity? Can we expect Americans again to be proud of their ignorance, confidently holding up signs yelling “Get a brain! Morans”?
He then went on saying that removing the Bible from the classroom isn’t neutral, but the promotion of a different worldview. Yeah, like forcing a boxer to remove his knife before he enters the ring is promoting his opponent.
But Ricky didn’t leave it at that. Brace yourself, this one’s going to make you spell Moron with an ‘a’:
[They say that] the absence of religion is not a religion in itself – which it is!
Like being dead is a way to live or being bald is a hair color.
Rick: Unfortunately, the absence of intelligence is not a form of genius.
Well, you’ve got to hand it to Santorum. It’s 79 seconds of concentrated stupid, so dense that it’s on par with Archbishop John Nienstedt – and that guy is a pro!
