Mini-Rumination: Deciphering Rick Santorum

Trying to understand how someone’s mind works can be a fool’s game, but The Curmudgeon relishes a challenge.

And he thinks he’s had a revelation about Rick Santorum.

Like most conservatives, Mr. Santorum wants the government out of people’s lives.  Fair enough.

On the other hand, he opposes abortion.

He opposes prenatal testing becauses he fears it leads to abortion.

He opposes birth control.

He opposes pre-marital sex.

He opposes non-marital sex.

He opposes non-procreative sex, even in a committed, monogamous marriage.

He opposes homosexuality.

He opposes gay marriage.

It’s suddenly clear: Santorum wants the government out of our lives so there’ll be room for the Catholic Church to take over our lives.

And the approximately 225 million Americans who aren’t Catholic?

The Curmudgeon guesses that’s just too bad for them.
