A lesson for US voters

Independent, 23 February 2012:

The American Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum advocates parental home tuition for his seven children.(“Educate your children at home like me, Santorum tells America’s parents”, 20 February) One wonders what they will have learnt from their father.

First, anyone who advocates birth control (like Obama) is “not a proper Christian”. Second that he, Santorum should win the Republican nomination because he was “the first to see through the hoax of climate change”. And third: “The idea that the Crusades and the fight of Christendom against Islam is somehow an aggression on our part is absolutely anti-historical.”
