Rick Santorum’s America

Hopefully, Sen. Rick Santorum’s relevancy in the presidential race ends soon. In the meantime, a couple enlightening links:

*Despite all of Santorum’s grievances about America’s alleged “decaying culture,” Steve Chapman points out that all the major cultural indicators that Santorum is concerned about (divorce rates, abortion) have IMPROVED during America’s descent into “moral relativism.” Santorum has every right to believe whatever religious doctrine he wants. I have religious beliefs myself. But to push policies that enforce these doctrines appear to backfire. All the more reason to let people live their own lives.

*While Santorum claims to believe in keeping families strong, apparently that does not extend to families with non-violent drug offenders.
