Santorum says Obama agenda not "based on Bible"!

Today Rick Santorum told supporters of the conservative Tea Party movement at a Columbus hotel. "Obama's agenda is "not about you. It's not about your quality of life. It's not about your jobs. It's about some phony ideal. Some phony theology. Oh, not a theology based on the Bible. A different theology," Source

Is Rick in the ball park of reality? Well, allow the President tell you in his own words. On June 28th, 2006, then Senator Obama gave a speech to the liberal Christian group "Call to Renewal" where he said: “Which passages of scripture should guide our public policy? Should we go with Leviticus, which suggests slavery is OK and that eating shellfish is an abomination? Or we could go with Deuteronomy, which suggests stoning your child if he strays from the faith? Or should we just stick to the Sermon on the Mount? “So before we get carried away, let’s read our Bible now,” Obama said, to jubilant cheering. “Folks haven’t been reading their Bible.” He also called Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount “a passage that is so radical that it’s doubtful that our Defense Department would survive its application.”

Then Senator Obama's comments demonstrate that taking words out of context in order to construct a false pretext may help you win elections in the short term but also displays a complete lack of ethics and integrity as he persists in knowingly misrepresenting Holy Scripture. What follows is a portion of this speech where he begins with "Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation......"
