Santorum should keep his mouth shut. As a Catholic I resent his simplistic attitude about the pedophiilia scandal in our church. The abuse happened because a few priests were screwed up and could get away with abusing kids because Cardinal Law didn't give a damn about the situation. Santorum doesn't address the fact that the archdiocese of Boston covered this stuff up. Loyal Catholics all over were upset and distressed over the scandal. I hope he's pissed off enough Catholic voters to turn him out of office. I know I'm pissed off.

I think many secretly agree with him.

Santorum was a guest on The Daily Show last night. Did anybody see it? If not, they will replay it again tonight.

I thought Jon was too easy on him. I expected him to ask more hard-hitting questions. Santorum must have said the word "virtue" about 20 times during the course of the interview. I guess that is his new buzzword or something.

Thanks Calluna!!!!

I JUST read this post in time (It is on right now).

I read in the Philly Enquirer today that the book IS NOT a setup for a Presidential Run.

He says that he would not want to put his family through two "back to back" elections.

Santorum's next book can be called "How I Got Whipped In A Senate Election," due out in 2007.

Call me crazy, but I like the person that being a latchkey kid turned me into, I am thankful for it .

And what if shit happens?
Like, for instance, my father was gunned down by a madman psycho serial killer and my mother went into a complete lunacy-ridden world almost drinking herself to death while having a nervous breakdown so she had to give me to the care of her two older sisters.
Are there Rent-A-Parents for those in need?
Just to keep this in balance for people like him to write books on how two parents are needed?

I believe the problem with his theory is that he believes that, in a normal family setting, that a woman should stay home and that the male should be able to make enough money to support the family.

He also states the feminism movement has lead to the breakdown of the family.

I am not sure that he said people that have been raised outside of the "ideal" are wrong...especially in a situation like yours.

Here is a question for discussion: How has society treated the role of "mother"? Have we elevated the status? Devalued the status? Do we value it much at all?

Do we need government to define the status for us and hold our hand along the way?

If motherhood is something of value, then maybe the government would do something. We have public service ads all the time trying to direct our behavior.

As long as it doesn't involve raising your taxes, right?
