This is an idea worth investigating. In fact, it's so worth investigating that I spent a whole ten minutes investigating it. In that time, I found some very interesting information. Did you know that out of over 200 countries in the world, there are only sixteen that have a AAA rating from both Standard & Poore's and Moody's credit agencies? That means that those sixteen countries have the world's strongest economies. Following Santorum's logic, it follows that those sixteen must also be the sixteen most morally sound countries in the world.
Letting the family break down and in fact encouraging it and inciting more breakdown through this whole redefinition of marriage debate, and not supporting strong nuclear families and not supporting and standing up for the dignity of human life. Those lead to a society that’s broken…
If you think that we can be a society that kills our own, and that disregards the family and the important role it plays, and doesn’t teach moral values and the important role of faith in the public square, and then expect people to be good, decent and moral when they behave economically, if you look at the root cause of the economic problems that we’re dealing with on Wall Street and Main Street I might add, from 2008, they were huge moral failings. And you can’t say that we’re gonna take morality out of the public square, morality out of our schools, God out of our schools, and then expect people to behave decently in a country that requires, capitalism requires some strong modicum of moral consciousness if it’s gonna be successful.
Which makes it pretty awesome that four of them have legalized gay marriage, twelve of them have universal healthcare, and all of them have some level of legalized abortion. That's my kind of morality, but I'm pretty sure it's not Rick's.
