Rick Santorum - Mario Cuomo, Jr.?

A few days ago I wrote about Rick Santorum's confusing message regarding birth control.   He is personally against birth control but still voted for it when he was senator because birth control "is not the taking of a human life."  That is most certainly not in line with Catholic teaching, although Senator Santorum professes to be a devout Catholic.  I can only compare this to Governor Mario Cuomo, who was personally against abortion but did not want to impose his beliefs on others.  I guess I could say I am personally against murder and mayhem, but I don't want to impose my belief on others. This just reeks of hypocrisy.  There is no way to have any kind of rule of law with this sort of philosophy.

Well, Senator Santorum has backed up his remarks about contraception in an interview with Greta Van Susteren.  Take a look:

February 17, 2012 11:13 A.M.Rick Santorum dismissed Santorum super PAC donor Foster Friess’s contraception comment on MSNBC (“Back in my days, they used Bayer Aspirin for contraception. The gals put it between their knees, and it wasn’t that costly.”) in an interview last night, saying he wasn’t “responsible” for everything his supporters said. 
Santorum said he had “deeply held beliefs” on the issue of contraception, but noted that he didn’t look to the government to impose his moral views.

“Only when there are real consequences to society or to the rights of individuals do I feel a need to speak out,” Santorum said. “And that’s why I do on the issue of abortion because we have another — we have another person involved in the decision.”

“But the issue of contraception, that’s not the case,” he added. “It’s something that people have a right to do in this country. And it certainly will be safe to do so under the Santorum presidency.”
 
Friess has written an apology on his blog for telling the joke.
I was listening to a very interesting interview on Youtube with E. Michael Jones in which he was discussing the ramifications of the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."  He talked about the Republican and Democratic parties and what they really stand for.  He said the Democrats are the party of sodomy and the Republicans are the party of usury, and each has vowed never to interfere with the other.  That is why nothing ever changes no matter which party is in power, and why our country continues in a downward spiral.  Rick Santorum is just another part of that power structure. 

NOTHING will change if he should somehow be elected as president.  Rick Santorum is a Potemkin Village.  He, like all the others, is not what he appears to be, and if you listen carefully, he will tell you just that.  Romney equals Obama equals Gingrich equals Santorum.  They are all one and the same person. 

We get the leaders we deserve.  And these days, that ain't much.

Dr. Jones' interview is in 4 parts.  Here is the fourth part of it in which he talks about the Republicans and the Democrats.
