Would Santorum winning Louisiana get his mojo back?

During a Rick Perry rally, a rare occurence happened. An even bigger theocrat and religious rightwinger spoke. A Pastor Dennis Terry stated during this Santorum rally in Greenwell Springs, Louisiana:

 "I don’t care what the liberals say, I don’t care what the nay-sayers say, this nation was founded as a Christian nation. The God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob – there’s only one God. There’s only one God, and his name is Jesus. I’m tired of people telling me that I can’t say those words.

I’m tired of people telling us as Christians that we can’t voice our beliefs or that we can no longer pray in public. Listen to me, if you don’t love America, if you don’t like the way we do things, I’ve got one thing to say: GET OUT! We don’t worship Buddha, I said we don’t worship Buddha, we don’t worship Mohammad, we don’t worship Allah. We worship God, we worship God’s son Jesus Christ."

O.K., first of all, nobody is telling him or others like him they can't voice their beliefs. But, when a humanist/atheist like me puts up a billboard, it is often vandalized and the billboard sign owner sometimes even gets death threats. The idea that Christian rightwingers are silenced in someway is not just silly, but idiotic. They have one of the biggest megaphones in America.

We are a nation founded upon the Enlightenment of course, nothing to do with Christianity. We are a secular republic. I though do not call for people like Terry or Santorum to 'love it or leave it'. They have a right to push for a Christian theocracy all they want.

If he wants to worship his god, fine, but he doesn't require the help of the government. He can try to suppress the rights of gays and arrest them for what they do in their own bedrooms. He can try to regulate the sex lives of not just those who are gay, but also those who are heterosexual. He can, as Santorum eagerly wants, to ban so called obscene material, read and watched by adults. I won't tell him to leave, but please stop whining when others stand up to your pushing your religious dogma on the rest of us, through the civil law.
