    Of course it's code. Read Calvary Chapel's "What We Believe" and take the time to decipher the statement that "worship of God is Fruitful". This is based upon the scripture, "The elect shall live off of the fat of the land". Santorum is speaking from the social darwinism of Dobson style Christianity with a Catholic twist.... the divine right of kings of industry.

    Now I think that Santorum is the anti christ what he's spits out is pure Satan ! And for anyone who thinks this man is a good person , you need to understand that you laying the ground work for Satan to take over this country !

    Rick Santorum is just the latest in the long list of Republican crackpots tryiing to win an election by saying the craziest things they can think of. He won't appeal to the general American voter, just to the extremists.

    Mitt Romney has no traction with conservatives because of his moderate actions while in office, and his Mormonism.

    With the Republicans serving up nothing but roadkill candidates, Obama has it pretty easy . . . especially since he really does not have to campaign and spend until Fall.

  8. Rick Santorum

    Hi! I'm Rick Santorum. I'm running for president by appealing to the Republican base by chumming up the yokels – oops, the base – with all these ridiculous religious fears. I will get them good and afraid by telling them that guns and Jesus will be banned if you choose Romney or Obama, and the hordes of Limbaugh-brained zombies will get a-hootin' and a-howlin' and vote for me!

    Of course, some people say that the general election is decided by the moderates in the middles, not the zealots of either side, so I haven't figured out how I am going to repackage myself in the Fall. Indeed, the middle who actually decide the general election tend to be repulsed by extremist approaches like mine. Hmmmmmm.

    I think Republicans know they aren't going to win so why waste a good candidate who would only lose anyway? That has to be why Santorum is the front runner. It's the only thing that makes sense.

    • Ronald Reganzo

      Be afraid, be very afraid Rick Santorum has proven he can win elections. Nothing is a given. President Obama, really has not delivered and his consti tuents are deserting in droves. Gas hits $4 or $5 a gallon and he does nothing? The huddled masses will be forced by economics to look elsewhere. President Obama has to do something tangible for the people and soon.

      February 21, 2012 at 11:47 am |
    • Joe T.

      The president can't influence oil prices. Oil prices are based on the world market and speculators. Doing stuff like drilling more oil, will be of no use.

      February 21, 2012 at 11:55 am |
    • Kevin Wallabee

      No president has ever been able to alter gas prices. It's a scam by the oil companies. Just watch their profits over the next few months – they always skyrocket in these "crises".

      You are just pretending that your own wishful thinking has a basis in reality. Here is the reality: Despite his mediocrity, about the only way Obama can lose is if the economy tanks going into the election, which is unlikely. All indicators are that things are slowly getting back on track. His opponents are both marred by their religion – yes, Santorum is too extreme, and Romney's Mormonism is just too unsettling to mainstream America.

      February 21, 2012 at 12:00 pm |
    • Ronald Reganzo

      Bill Clinton influenced the rise of gas prices by opening the national reserves. President Obama could have gas executives in to discuss their 100% plus profits, there are things that can done. Bottom line the people , the vast majority, the 99% votes. If the President cannot or will not give the 99% something tangible in the near future, it is a real possibility that he will lose the White House. Rick Santorum can win this thing.

      February 21, 2012 at 12:08 pm |
    • GodPot

      The manufactured oil "crisis" is no more than a global b u t t plug that Opec shoves in for a few months to move the price from just under $3 up to $3.50 but to do so they need to s t r e t c h out our wallets and make us hurt by pay $4 a gallon for a few months then letting us relax back to $3.50 a gallon and we are happy about it. They do this every one to two years now so get used to it...

    Why the Christian Right no longer matters in presidential elections:

    Once again, all the conservative votes in the country "ain't" going to help a "pro-life" presidential candidate, i.e Mitt Romney, Newton Leroy Gingrich, Ron Paul or Rick Santorum, in 2012 as the "Immoral Majority" rules the country and will be doing so for awhile. The "Immoral Majority" you ask?

    The fastest growing USA voting bloc: In 2008, the 70+ million "Roe vs. Wade mothers and fathers" of aborted womb-babies" whose ranks grow by two million per year i.e. 78+ million "IM" voters in 2012.

    2008 Presidential popular vote results:

    69,456,897 for pro-abortion/choice BO, 59,934,814 for "pro-life" JM.

    And the irony:

    And all because many women fail to take the Pill once a day or men fail to use a condom even though in most cases these men have them in their pockets. (maybe they should be called the "Stupid Majority"?)

    The failures of the widely used birth "control" methods i.e. the Pill and male condom have led to the large rate of abortions ( one million/yr) and S-TDs (19 million/yr) in the USA. Men and women must either recognize their responsibilities by using the Pill or condoms properly and/or use other safer birth control methods in order to reduce the epidemics of abortion and S-TDs.

    The contemptuous "phony theology" remark was an attempt to appeal to the anti-intellectual bias of US red necks. Santorum has always, (ever since his "politics is just a sport" remark) maintained his junior-high level of maturity. I surely hope the Repubtards put him up as their candidate. Women will NEVER vote for that idiot. It's a slam dunk.

      You "think" you "have become closer to god". That opinion/emotion is ALL in YOUR head. There is no objective proof for it, and no way to measure it. If you wish to assert your emotional "feelings" as reality, great. It's not TRUTH.

      There is a god(el) and there is God(Elohim). Out of ignorance or spite you want to confuse the two. Neither shows intellectual capacity but rather chauvinism and that is not a word used for anti-feminists only.

    • just sayin

      It is interesting that Elpheba claims to know me better than I know myself. I know who I have believed and am persuaded that God is able to keep that which I have committed to Him against that day. I speak with God every day. I once was lost, a liar,thief and a murderer, but now am found a new creation in Christ, forgiven of sins and free to live abundantly. That is real change bought by the blood of Christ, committed and confirmed in prayer.

      I can watch 30 seconds of that video and see it is Bogus, If you are going to claim editing and changes you need to provide versions and changes withen. You dont find that in the scriptures. It is just a bogus lie!!

      February 21, 2012 at 1:03 pm |
    • Elpheba

      The point in question was : what is an 'elohim". Calling the video "bogus" because you do not know about all the editing is YOUR problem. Too bad you never studdied scripture. EVEY scripture scholar knows about the editing processes and even who the editors were. It's delusional to claim tnere wasn't. The point was "elohim" is not a proper name, it was ageneric term, for MANY gods.

      As for prayer "changing" your life...whatever. The fact that YOU *think* it did, is in no way PROOF that it did. It's just your opinion. It's "self-talk", and THAT can be very powerful. There is no god to talk back to you.

He may play well with the Religious Right, but his loony ideas will not float with the general public. Contraception and woman's health may well give the Dems back the House as well as Obama a 2nd term. Thank god for insanity. LOL

    • Reality

      From Professors Crossan and Watts' book, Who is Jesus.

      "That Jesus was crucified under Pontius Pilate, as the Creed states, is as certain as anything historical can ever be.

      “ The Jewish historian, Josephus and the pagan historian Tacitus both agree that Jesus was executed by order of the Roman governor of Judea. And is very hard to imagine that Jesus' followers would have invented such a story unless it indeed happened.

      “While the brute fact that of Jesus' death by crucifixion is historically certain, however, those detailed narratives in our present gospels are much more problematic. "

      “My best historical reconstruction would be something like this. Jesus was arrested during the Passover festival, most likely in response to his action in the Temple. Those who were closest to him ran away for their own safety.

      I do not presume that there were any high-level confrontations between Caiaphas and Pilate and Herod Antipas either about Jesus or with Jesus. No doubt they would have agreed before the festival that fast action was to be taken against any disturbance and that a few examples by crucifixion might be especially useful at the outset. And I doubt very much if Jewish police or Roman soldiers needed to go too far up the chain of command in handling a Galilean peasant like Jesus. It is hard for us to imagine the casual brutality with which Jesus was probably taken and executed. All those "last week" details in our gospels, as distinct from the brute facts just mentioned, are prophecy turned into history, rather than history remembered."

      See also Professor Crossan's reviews of the existence of Jesus in his other books especially, The Historical Jesus and also Excavating Jesus (with Professor Jonathan Reed doing the archeology discussion) .

      Other NT exegetes to include members of the Jesus Seminar have published similar books with appropriate supporting references.

      Part of Crossan's The Historical Jesus has been published online at books.google.com/books.

      There is also a search engine for this book on the left hand side of the opening page. e.g. Search Josephus

      See also Wikipedia's review on the historical Jesus to include the Tacitus' reference to the crucifixion of Jesus.

      From ask.com,

      "One of the greatest historians of ancient Rome, Cornelius Tacitus is a primary source for much of what is known about life the first and second centuries after the life of Jesus. His most famous works, Histories and Annals, exist in fragmentary form, though many of his earlier writings were lost to time. Tacitus is known for being generally reliable (if somewhat biased toward what he saw as Roman immorality) and for having a uniquely direct (if not blunt) writing style.

      Then there are these scriptural references:

      Crucifixion of Jesus:(1) 1 Cor 15:3b; (2a) Gos. Pet. 4:10-5:16,18-20; 6:22; (2b) Mark 15:22-38 = Matt 27:33-51a = Luke 23:32-46; (2c) John 19:17b-25a,28-36; (3) Barn. 7:3-5; (4a) 1 Clem. 16:3-4 (=Isaiah 53:1-12); (4b) 1 Clem. 16.15-16 (=Psalm 22:6-8); (5a) Ign. Mag. 11; (5b) Ign. Trall. 9:1b; (5c) Ign. Smyrn. 1.2.- (read them all at wiki.faithfutures. Crucifixion org/index.php/005_Crucifixion_Of_Jesus )

      @Reality

      Assumptions:
      (1) Jesus died in about 30 C.E.
      (2) Hearsay is not acceptable evidence.

      Hearsay – hear•say/ˈhi(ə)rˌsā/
      Noun: Information received from other people that cannot be adequately substantiated; rumor.
      The report of another person's words by a witness, usually disallowed as evidence in a court of law.
      Synonyms: rumor – report – gossip – whisper – scuttlebutt – crap (mine)

      Obviously, anyone born after 30 C.E. could not have been an eyewitness. Instead they are relating what someone(s) told them. I am not disputing that the Christian religion began to exist in the 1st century. But like the worship of all the other gods like Mithra... the worship can be so, without the god being so.

      Hearsay evidence, if allowed, could be used to "prove" the Greek gods and demigods were real. Just as we have a brief mention of Jesus by Joesphus in his Antiquities, Joesphus also mentions Hercules (more times than Jesus), in the very same work (see: 1.15; 8.5.3; 10.11.1). Josephus wasn't born until 37 C.E. Is Hercules real, just because his tales were told?

      Tacitus, the Roman historian's birth year at 56–c., puts him well after the alleged life of Jesus. HEARSAY

      "The work involved in Tacitus' Annals. This work was written in approximately 117 CE. In it Jesus' death is mentioned.

      'Christus, the founder of the name, had undergone the death penalty in the reign of Tiberius, by sentence of the procurator Pontius Pilatus.' (Annals, 15.44)

      Several scholars have questioned the authenticity of this passage. It is claimed that Tacitus made use of Roman docu_ments in reporting the above. If that is true surely he would not have made the error with Pilate.

      Pilate is identified as a procurator rather than a prefect. This is a historical problem that has been noted by scholars. Those two positions are not one and the same. A procurator is a financial administrator(civilian) whilst a prefect is a military position.

      Historically Judea was ruled by a prefect appointed by Rome from 6 CE to around 44 CE. It was after that period that the governor was procurator. In fact, an inscription that was found at Caesarea Maritima, ludaea there is an inscription dedicated to Pilate which reads, "praefectus iudaeae" which means "prefect of Judea". Raymond E. Brown notes, "In calling Pilate a procurator Tacitus was reflecting the later terminology of the 1st cent., still in vogue at the time of his writing."

      Secondly, official Roman docu_ments could not possibly have referred to Jesus as "Christus" as G.A. Wells points out in The Historical Evidence for Jesus.

      So where did Tacitus get his information from? Well, isn't it obvious? Christians were already quite known then. He could have easily gotten his information from the Christians as R.T France, E.P. Sanders, G.A. Wells and others have pointed out. This means that even if Tacitus authentically wrote the information it is almost 100 years after the happenings and does not rely on independent sources."

      "Charles Guignebert argued that "So long as there is that possibility [that Tacitus is merely echoing what Christians themselves were saying], the passage remains quite worthless".[59] R. T. France concludes that the Tacitus passage is at best just Tacitus repeating what he has heard through Christians.[60][61]" – Wikipedia

      Josephus Birth date 36 c., Not an eyewitness to anything. Hearsay

      Scholars have long suspected the passage to be spurious.

      "Questions regarding the authenticity of this particular passage have been raised since the 16th century as Raymond Brown notes in his volume one of The Death of the Messiah on page 374. Today it is widely rejected as a forgery attributed to Josephus. Raymond E. Brown on the same page of his work cites a number of authorities who rejected the text as outright inauthentic which includes Battifol, Birdsall, Burkitt, Conzelmann, Hahn, L. Hermann, Lagrange, Norden and Zeitlin. It is historically known that Josephus was a Jew and died as one. He did not convert to Christianity at any point in time. It goes without saying that being a Jew he would have hardly attested Jesus' Christhood and his rising again fulfilling the prophecies of the prophets of old. Had he believed in such Christian doctrines he would have been a Christian. "

      There are no writings of Jesus, outside of the Gospels, that are not HEARSAY, or disputed (later insertions).

      Jesus the Messiah was an urban legend.

      The fact that NO contemporary historians bothered to mention Him, despite all the wondrous deeds and crowds and mystical darkness and wondering zombies upon His death... makes the tale hard to swallow. I just don't have enough faith to believe in zombies. They just don't jive with the reality I see around me.

      Cheers!
