Santorum: Banning Religion Is a ‘Very Dangerous Thing’

Former Senator Rick Santorum appeared on Fox & Friends this morning to discuss Indiana’s unnecessarily controversial religious freedom law, and fought back against the left’s insistence on targeting religious groups in America by saying that banning faith in the public square “is a very dangerous thing.”

With prominent liberals in the media proclaiming provable falsehoods about the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), claiming that it would be used to wantonly discriminate against the gay community, Santorum explained that it “has never been used for that purpose.”

He explained that “We believe that the First Amendment actually should be in practice in America, that people should have religious liberty, the free exercise of religion.”

Liberals have a problem with that.

Santorum says that is dangerous.

Via Fox News Insider:

Santorum explained that the bill prohibits state and local governments from infringing on a person’s religious beliefs without a “compelling” interest.

He said this doesn’t mean that anyone who claims a religious exemption or cause automatically wins the debate, but it makes the court consider the legitimacy of a person’s religious objection.

“That’s all it does,” Santorum said. “It allows for the discussion to be had.”

“We have come to the point in America where religion is considered so unimportant that corporate America can stand up and exercise its economic muscle to make sure that people of faith have no say in exercising their faith in the public square. That’s a very dangerous thing.”

Do you agree with Santorum – Is the assault on religious freedom from the left a dangerous thing?
