Factotum is only involved in straight bashing when it comes to women.  His evangelical view of women as "help mates" renders them subject to deprivation of rights (e.g. abortion).  A help mate is not as worthy of rights as a male.  Read your Bibles!

I have seen clips of that interview. This lead to the classic quote I heard from Dan Savage, the author and activist eternally linked to Rick Santorum, "... he's not just about gay bashing. He is about straight bashing, too..."

wow, that is too much.  my favorite part:

" It's a license to do things in the sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be." 

and Santorum knows what we should or shouldn't be doing in the bedroom?  what nerve.

More Santorum absurdity.

@Greg...  1st off, married at 15?!  But wow, what a sad story.  :-(  I deeply admire her for continuing to resist them in spite of the torture, and for so long!

Is Christianity good for America?  My earliest ancestor to the Americas was a Puritan widow with a small son who arrive in 1632. She had been persecuted in England because of her religion, went to Holland because it was more liberal and found it too liberal.  She paid for their passage by agreeing to be "breedstock" in a new Puritan community in Massachusetts.  Over the years and generations, that religious community became as oppressive against other religions as the religious powers against her in England. 

Migrating from the poor soils of sandy Massachusetts shorelines, descendants moved into Pennsylvania and became Quakers.  From there, my grandmother at about 20 years of age, alone, migrated to the north Idaho woods and mining country to work as a nurse in Santa, Idaho, hospital. There, she met and married my grandfather newly migrated from Belgium where constant wars chewed up men and countryside like meat-grinders.   

D'Souza reported his ancestors converted to Christianity because of the caste system from which no one could escape. Christianity provided an option and his ancestors took it.  I respect D'Souza's history; surely there were challenges that needed to be confronted, however I think he is in error about solutions. He said as much when he reported that southern India is more Christian, conservative and poorer than some other parts. I don't know the facts, but that is what he said in the debate with Silverman. I believe there is a correlations between religion and politics and economics and I write about that in my group, Politics, Economics, and Religion. Remember, correlation is not cause, it means things co-exist. 

Turning to religion for solutions to human angst does not solve political, economic and theological questions, but adds a structure based on attitudes, beliefs, customs, traditions and values inherited from our ancestors that revolve around authority and power that was created. to support slavery, feudalism, and then capitalism.  

In my opinion, religion is bad for me, for my country, and for the Earth.
