Rick Santorum Asks Question about Religious Freedom

Rick Santorum: Should a Homosexual Baker Be Legally Required to Make a Cake Specified by Westboro Baptist Church? The Liberal answer is that there is no First Amendment and government censorship is self-explaining. That’s not what they want to admit, but it is their obvious logic. Rick Santorum asked his question on CBS Face the Nation: “Santorum on Indiana law: Tolerance is ‘two-way street.’” If I had seen it at first on TV or on the CBS website I would probably not have bothered Read more […]

Santorum-backed Judge Rules Against Marriage

From Dave Weigel at Slate: “Gay marriage is legal in Pennsylvania today, following a ruling by U.S. District Judge John Jones…Who saw this coming? I’m going to guess not Rick Santorum. Twelve years ago, in his second and final term as the U.S. senator from Pennsylvania, Santorum urged the Senate to confirm Jones.” Weigel quotes Santorum as saying at the time: “(Jones) is highly qualified to assume the important role of Judge and the duty of protecting the Constitution and ensuring the Read more […]

Rick Santorum on Safety in Guns

Steve King, and Donald Trump. Unlike the other speakers, however, the reception for Senator Cruz was clearly overwhelming. According to The Washington Examiner: Read more […]

What Can Republicans Hope For In 2016?

Rand Paul: He is definitely running in 2016. Much of his time is now spent talking about his policies and what kind of leadership the country needs. If he did run for the nomination, he would almost certainly get it (and probably lose to Hillary Clinton, unfortunately, who is most definitely running). The only thing that poses a risk to his nomination in the GOP primaries is if he missteps in this immigration balancing act he just commenced the other day in holding the same position on the matter Read more […]

Romney gets Graham approval

On Thursday, October 11, Republican presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, met with Rev. Billy Graham in his mountaintop home in Asheville, North Carolina. In so doing, Romney was able to check a crucial public relations event off his campaign agenda. For the last fifty years or more, acquiring an audience—and an endorsement—from Billy Graham has been a nearly mandatory step for any candidate hoping to court evangelicals for their votes. In an interesting twist of the intermingling of church Read more […]
