Santorum ‘Went Over The Line’ In His Remarks About Obama’s Christian Values

Judeo-Christian Values

President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign adviser Robert Gibb told ABC’s “This Week” program that GOP candidate Rick Santorum ‘went over the line’ when he questioned the president’s Christian values, boston.com said.

Gibb said the country would be better served if presidential candidates focused instead on the economic challenges face by the middle class saying "to get rid of this mindset in our politics that, if we disagree, we have to question character and faith."

Mr. Santorum, a staunch Catholic who opposed strongly gay marriage and abortion, on Saturday hit out at Obama for believing in 'some phony ideal, some phony theology. Not a theology based on the Bible' during a campaign stop at Ohio.

But on Sunday, Santorum told CBS ‘Face the Nation’ program he had not been referring to the president’s religion but on his views on the environment.

Santorum said 'I was talking about the radical environmentalists. That's what I was talking about - energy, this idea that man is here to serve the Earth, as opposed to husband its resources and be good stewards of the Earth. And I think that is a phony ideal.’
