Rick Santorum’s Fantasy About Stewards of the Earth

By: Monday February 20, 2012 6:30 am

On CBS Face the Nation, yesterday, Rick Santorum left CBS’ Bob Schieffer repeatedly incredulous as Santorum gave us what increasingly sounds like his own personal version of Catholic dogma. He’s been hinting that mainline religion in America — read, Protestants — have led America astray, that while President Obama may claim to be a Christian, his governing religion was not based on the Bible. But his remarks on environmental stewardship are equally appalling.

Progressives need to win the trust of regular Americans and prove that Democrats are capable of making the government work efficiently and for everyone’s benefit.
