A reader over at the Register relates this anecdote:

We heard Sen. Rick Santorum speak an an event recently.He related how he & his family were visiting the Vatican & were ceremoniously ushered up to the very front during an audience with the pope. The Italian bishop who directed the Sanotorums to come forward kept pointing to the senator saying:”Important man, inportant man.” Sen. Santorum was kind of embarrassed & surprised that his status as a US senator had so much recognition in Rome.Finally when he, his wife & children were led up to the place of honor, the bishop turned to Sen. Santorum & pointed to the children & again said “Important man.”
The Santorums were the only ones present who’d brought their children along.That’s what was important about the senator-he was a father of a large family.The bishop likely had no idea he was a politician.

The family is the foundation of society.

Dear Lefty Tribalist Reader: Restrain, if possible, your nearly ungovernable impulse to shout something at the Pavlovian stimulus “Santorum”. Instead, grasp the actual import of the story. Consider it a Lenten exercise. Thank you.
