Santorum: Call Secularism a Religion and Ban It From Schools

Rick Santorum went on Bryan Fischer’s radio show and offered up a brilliant plan to get the Bible back into schools: “I think we should start calling secularism a religion, because if we did, then we could ban that too.” You’re a genius, Rick. Next you should start calling your car a horse and then you can be a cowboy.

    Better idea: call willful ignorance a religion so we can ban it from government.

  • Reginald Selkirk

    But remember, Islam is not a religion, but a political position.

  • ebotebo

    What a feckin’ dillweed!

  • Rowan vet-tech

    So…. he wants to ban history, english, economics, art, math, etc? Because all those are secular things…… O_o Good gods, the stupid this man oozes is astounding.

  • Deacon Duncan

    Awesome, that way everybody employed in a secular occupation can get a ministerial exemption from their income tax. Great thinking, Ricky!

    Mounted by Santorum? Poor cat.

    Oh, you wrote “car,” not “cat.” Never mind.

  • matty1

    Once more.

    Islam is not a religion it’s a political ideology

    Christianity is not a religion it’s a personal relationship with Jesus

    [Insert faith here] is not a religion it’s a way of life.

    Clearly Secularism is not only a religion, it is in fact the only religion in existence.

    “In Nothing We Trust” sounds like a great motto.

    Do we really want our kids being exposed to Santorum? I mean, the very word is synonymous with…

  • cjcolucci

    Isn’t Rick Santorum just about the last person who should be calling for redefining words and names?

  • http://www.thelosersleague.com theschwa

    But secularism *IS* a religion!!11 Just like silence is a language!!!

    I believe that the usual comparison is “just like abstinence is a sex position.”

  • pacal

    Santorum is certainly a frothy mix.

  • Synfandel

    Okay, so, we’re banning religion from schools and, since we’ve declared secularism a religion, we’re banning it too. Now, what are we left with? Oh, secularism. Every time we remove religion, secularism pops up again. There has to be a reason.

    Is Nothing sacred?

    I always liked: “just like ‘bald’ is a hair color.”

    Wondered that myself. Ban religion and secularism and you’ve banned everything.

    I think the kids are just supposed to sit there and stare off into space for 12 years.

    The worst that could happen is they won’t be able to count or read and will know nothing. It is a great recipe to populate a society with or at least it worked well during the stone age.

  • peterh

    People like Santorum give stupid a bad name.

  • Kevin Kehres

    @19…well, look on the bright side. At least they’ll all vote Republican.

  • markdowd

    Reminds me of that old riddle…

    If you call a sheep’s tail a leg, how many legs does it have?

    Four. Calling it a leg doesn’t make it one.

    Know that one, Santorum?

    Santorum’s next genius policy proposal:

    Call unemployment a job so we can stop sending checks to those lazy jobless bums.

    Somehow I don’t think that the Chihuahua will be quite so cynical if the bomb goes off, hopefully not near his house.

    Watch your mouth, ebotebo — what did dill weed ever do to you?

  • dingojack

    SLC – I hate to disabuse you of that idea. As to why this might be, see ‘The Hilton Hotel Bombing’ (and the subsequent events).

    SLC – And then this turned up on facebook. Or putting it another way.
