Rick Santorum is Mistaken

Mr. Santorum said

“Kennedy took words written to protect religion from the government and used them to protect the government from religion,” Santorum said, referring to the phrase “separation of church and state.”

The wars of reformation gave birth to a phrase that people now speak as cliché. Live and let live. This is a real reason for the separation between church and state.

 During the St. Bartholomew’s Day Massacre French soldiers and the Roman Catholic clergy fell upon the unarmed people, and blood flowed like a river throughout the entire country. Men, women, and children fell in heaps before the mobs and the bloodthirsty troops. In one week, almost 100,100 Protestants perished. The rivers of France were so filled with corpses that for many months no fish were eaten. In the valley of the Loire, wolves came down from the hills to feed upon the decaying bodies of Frenchmen. The list of massacres was as endless as the list of the dead!

 Idealism is an angel without eyes.

— Joseph Conrad

 Mr. Santorum the limits of separation of church and state is not determined by your religious beliefs. It’s about those who were murdered and suffered because of other peoples beliefs. It’s about about the money, land and spoils stolen from the victims of the all the inquisitions and those tried for witchcraft that was divided between the sovereign leaders and the Church.

The ignorance of the subject is a disgrace. Disrespect for all those who suffered. A pretense that the ugly viciousness wasn’t hidden behind a mask called faith.”
