Hey, Rick Santorum, Let’s Talk about a “Theology Not Based on the Bible”

Hey, Rick Santorum, Let’s Talk about a “Theology Not Based on the Bible” February 20, 2012

Rick Santorum, an ardent Catholic, made headlines over the weekend for saying that President Obama practices “a different theology” that is “not a theology based on the Bible.”

Theologies develop, and I have no trouble with that. But Santorum obviously does, so let’s take a look at some things that are not “based on the Bible”:

  • The Immaculate Conception
  • The perpetual virginity of Mary
  • Praying to saints
  • A celibate priesthood
  • Transubstantiation
  • The papacy
  • Twelve sacraments that bestow grace

Again, this isn’t about my quibbles with these. This is about setting up a standard that Santorum’s own church can’t meet.

And Santorum’s Sunday backtrack about radical environmentalists was laughable.

It’s interesting, isn’t it, that we get honesty when these candidates talk off-script?
