Protestants not Christian?

“We look at the shape of mainline Protestantism in this country and it is in shambles, it is gone from the world of Christianity as I see it.” – Rick Santorum

So Santorum thinks mainline Protestants are so sinful they are no longer Christian?

This will rightfully alienate a vast number of Christians voters.

78.4% of adult Americans are Christian.
51.3% of adult Americans are Protestant.

Even people who are not Protestants would find this condescending and extreme.

The Democrats will make commercials featuring this Protestant-hostile statement. Santorum wouldn’t have a snowball’s chance of winning the election after this exposure of his personal beliefs. No wonder they call him Senator Sanctimonium.

I personally do not support Santorum because he is an authoritarian masquerading as a conservative. He has voiced his opposition to the Tea Party, and he wants to regulate the internet.

Having big government enforcing a right wing agenda is not much better than big government forcing a left wing agenda. His condescending views toward Protestantism are the last straw for the viability his candidacy. As you may have noticed, not all Christians are for freedom of speech or the honest capitalism of free markets. He, like some religious “conservatives” sell out our freedom for the advancement of his personal religious views.

Here is another relevant quote:

They have this idea that people should be left alone, be able to do whatever they want to do, government should keep our taxes down and keep our regulations low, that we shouldn’t get involved in the bedroom, we shouldn’t get involved in cultural issues.

That is not how traditional conservatives view the world. There is no such society that I’m aware of, where we’ve had radical individualism and that it succeeds as a culture.”

Apparently Rick Santorum thinks that the government should get “involved in the bedroom”. Apparently having what goes on in your bedroom be your own business is “radical individualism”. Whether you agree with him or not, that kind of intrusion will not fly with the electorate. He cannot win.

    You are so right. There is no way Santorum could win. No way.

    His kind of authoritarianism just rubs the wrong way.

    Worse, he paints a false picture of conservatives that the media, and the left, will latch on to.

    Dark days. Let’s pray for some light.

    Newt was the only candidate at the debate who never attacked anyone except obozo. He didn’t fall into the liberal trap King sprang on the four debaters.newt was the master debater, while the others were mere journeymen, if not apprentices.

    Evidently Santorum is not aware of The Protestant Reformation.
