PAPER: Santorum Excommunicates Protestants

Hey, all you Christians who happen to not be Catholic... Rick Santorum thinks you are "peacocks on display".

This guy just makes it too easy. The latest quote to hit from Tricky is one he made back in 2008 at a Catholic University:

"we look at the shape of mainline Protestantism in this country and it is in shambles, it is gone from the world of Christianity as I see it. [...]
they are peacocks on display and they have taken their poor behavior and made it fashionable. The corruption of culture, the corruption of manners, the corruption of decency is now on display whether it’s the NBA or whether it’s a rock concert or whether it’s on a movie set."

While he might have made a point, it isn't the point he's trying to make. The point he might have made is that mainline Christianity isn't about charity anymore, and has become too materialistic. Instead, he seems to be saying that Catholics got it right, and protestants, well, they're just debauched heretics. Of course, coming from a wealthy career politician and lobbyist who has consistently given up principle to succeed, either point would be somewhat ironic.

So, to all of those Baptists, Methodists, Presbyterians, and any other protestants who happen to have voted for, or supported, Rick Santorum, I hope you enjoy your 'conservative' choice.
