Rick Santorum says he “almost threw up” when he read the text of John F. Kennedy’s famed speech on the separation of church and state, saying “I don’t believe in an America where the separation of church and state is absolute. The idea that the church can have no influence or no involvement in the operation of the state is absolutely antithetical to the objectives and vision of our country.”

Coincidentally, I almost threw up when I Google Image Searched for “Santorum.”

So-called “movement conservatives” have long claimed former Arizona Senator and 1964 GOP presidential nominee Barry Goldwater as the founder of their movement. They’re very fond of trotting out Goldwater’s most famous quip, “extremism in defense of liberty is no vice,” but these days some of his other quotations are curiously ignored. Although we shouldn’t be surprised that religious conservatives would take certain parts of a message as gospel truth while totally ignoring others— they do it with the Bible every day.
