Santorum Accepts Blessing After Pastor Tells All Buddhists, Muslims to Git Outta US


It’s a good thing Rick Santorum is so very concerned with our First Amendment right to freedom of religion. He says so every day! Which is why it might come as a surprise to some (it will not come as a surprise to anyone) that maybe Rick Santorum only believes in First Amendment rights for Christians and not any of those godless Buddhists, Mooslims, Mohommedans, or Other? The heathen infidel lesbian witches at RightWingWatch bring you this not at all terrifying video of some heehaw preacher screamin’ and a-shriekin’ at all us to git out his cuntry before laying his hands on the smiling, smegma-slicked puss of Mr. Senator Rick Santorum.

Here is the touching benediction.

        More "compassionate conservative" churches should have this etched into their entry archways. It's like that saying about abandoning, uh, something or other when you enter. It's on the tip of my tongue.

      1. JustPixelz

        I assume you're talking about the wall of separate between church and state. The one with surveyor's marks on it, right?

      "It is interesting at great political rallies how you have a Protestant to pray and a Catholic to pray, and then you have a Jew to pray. With all due respect to those dear people, my friend, God Almighty does not hear the prayer of a Jew. For how in the world can God hear the prayer of a man who says that Jesus Christ is not the true Messiah? It is blasphemy."–Bailey Smith, president, Southern Baptist Convention, Aug. 22, 1980.

    "If you don't love America, you don't like the way we do things, I got one thing to say: GET OUT!"
    Yes, preacher, please do GTFO…

        1. Loaded_Pants

          And here I was thinkin' the biggest threat to America was all that turban-wearin' Sharia Muslim stuff.

      1. BornInATrailer

        These are the same people that hate Sikhs. And they hate them only because they think that is what an Arab should look like.

        "…these are just simple farmers. These are people of the land. The common clay of the new West. You know… morons."

        Sri Lankan Tamils (Hindus and Catholics, mainly) being oppressed by the mainly Buddhist Sinhalese majority. Or those people who remember that the major Zen orders in Japan were totally alongside their WW2 military dictatorship. Or the Tibetan serfs under the old lamaist theocracy.

        Westerners seem to have this idea that Buddhism is some kind of cuddly "not-really-a-religion", whereas just like every other religion, it can be used for good and assholish purposes.

        1. vodkamuppet

          All good examlpes but do you think Dennis Terry is actually aware of any of that? I knew there had to be some group of people somewhere but I doubt Pastor Denny is taking a principled stand on they're behalf.

        2. redarmyzombie

          Don't forget people murdered/enslaved by the junta in Burma/Myanmar/whatever the fuck they call it these days.

  2. RadioStalingrad

    Do these ass muskets still believe in the trinity? Or is it a two for one deal now?Holy Ghost, batman.

    1. AbandonHope

      It's a Buy Two Deities, Get One Free sale. A clever little marketing move designed to undercut the profits of other monotheistic religions and eventually corner the market and establish a monopoly.

    2. pdiddycornchips

      Men like the preacher before us exist to separate morons from their money. God and theology are props they use and discard at will. Fast talking preachers are as old as civilization itself. They survive because there's never a shortage of fools who send them money. What IS different is those fools used to be easily recognized and easily dismissed. Now, they make up the bulk of Republican primary voters. This country is facing a moral dilemma, how to reverse decades of conservative sanctioned ignorance and stupidity.

    1. HarryButtle

      Yea, well, if He doesn't like it, He could always DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT*. How's about some of that fire & brimstone and turnin' people into salt? Turn Rick Santorum inside out on live television, and I'll bet the rest would wise up pretty effing quick.

      * If He was real, of course.

      1. Boojum_Reborn

        Yeah, well, have YOU ever turned a bag of shit inside out? Srsly, that's some kind of nasty.

  3. memzilla

    Hmmm… "charismatic" pseudo-leader… buncha white people with their right hands raised up in the air, saluting…. hmmm…

    1. sullivanst

      Don't forget the openly expressed desire for a nation purged of believers in disfavored religions…

  4. Maman

    Someone want to explain that not everyone practicing Judeo-Christian ethics worships Jesus Christ? This crap makes my brain hurt.

    1. chicken_thief

      And it seems that few for those who worship Jesus Christ practice Judeo-Christian ethics.

    2. Jukesgrrl

      They think they adopted the Jews to help them out with their rapture. No one seems to have clued them in that more Jews are Democrats than Republicans … let alone this kind.

      1. FROTHY

        Nobody ever accused the Jooz of being stupid. Which they'd have to be to join a party that depends on them all being killed or converted.

        1. rickmaci

          "…that depends on them all being killed or converted."

          Converted under the threat of death if they don't.

    1. Dashboard_Jesus

      reminds me of a favorite old joke…whaddya call a dyslexic agnostic insomniac? (wait for it) someone who lies awake at night wondering if there really IS a dog!

  5. SorosBot

    I am shocked – shocked! – that a man who uses his religion to justify his bigotry against women and gay people would also be a bigot against non-Christians. Shocked I tell you.

    1. OneYieldRegular

      That this is even a story is only because the guy's batteries haven't run down yet.

  6. Lionel[redacted]Esq

    I cannot wait for this to be the centerpiece of Sean Hannity's "Vetting Santorum."

    Although it might not be fair and balanced, as I'm pretty sure that FOX News current slogan is "Venting Santorum."

    1. AbandonHope

      You know, my daughter goes to a preschool run by a Methodist church. When we've been there for various open houses and shows and whatnot, I've seen a ton of posters up talking about respecting all races, all religions, all socioeconomic strata… and it always gives me the startling realization that these hateful, bigoted, loud-mouthed harpies do NOT speak for all Christians. It's one of those things that I always know, logically, in the back of my mind, but it's easy to forget unless you see evidence to the contrary.

      I'm still very secular, still reeling from eight years of Catholic school education, but I'm always so glad to see some actual liberal, progressive, caring Christians out there somewhere. Gives me a ray of hope that is often so fleeting.

  7. SorosBot

    "There's one god, and his name is Jesus!" Someone has forgotten to give the father and the holy ghost their due.

  8. SexySmurf

    Buddha Christ, that congregation looks like the Grim Reaper's waiting room. During the standing ovations, I wonder how many people stood up too fast and broke a hip.

  9. SoBeach

    Preachers like that are flat-out hilarious. You just know they're laying it on thick, trying to get the camera people and stage crew to laugh. Sort of like the way actors will occasionally get goofy with each other towards the end of a long running stage play.

    1. AbandonHope

      For the sake of this nation's future, I desperately want to believe that… but I think this guy believes what he's saying as much as Santorum does.

      1. SoBeach

        Remember this: For every sex and drug scandal you read about involving a bible-thumping preacher, there are hundreds if not thousands involving holy-rollers not famous enough to merit news coverage.

        It's show business, and behind the scenes they party like rock stars.

  10. anniegetyerfun

    Is this what Santorum is concerned about when he talks about religious people not being allowed to participate in the public sector in a meaningful way?

    Haha, just kidding. I know it's not.

  11. LesBontemps

    The god of Abraham, the god of Issaac and the god of Jacob — there is only one god, there is only one god, and his name is Jesus.

    I could be wrong, but I am pretty sure that Jesus was not the god of Abraham, Isaac and/or Jacob.

    1. GOPCrusher

      I'm surprised that he stopped there and didn't come right out and say that the worshippers of the God Of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob killed Jesus.

  12. OkieDokieDog

    hahaha! Silly Xtians. They don't know that they're going to be converted to Mormons after they die.

    1. NYNYNYjr

      Also, I'm going to dig them up and put them into new graves, with headstones that say "John Jones- Gay Mormon- Married to Bill Smith Beloved Husband and Devoted Top"

  13. kingofmeh

    fox news commentary favorably comparing santorum's being blessed by this guy immediately after xenophobic commentary to reverend wright saying controversial things whilst president obama may or may not have been present/hugging a left-wing law professor in 3. . . 2. . . 1 . . .

  14. Baconzgood

    I love how these holy rollers never say Jesus. As if "JEEZ-US!!!" is better than just plain Jesus. I guess Jesus is like a 3 Musketeers and "JEEZ-US!!!" is like a Snickers.

  15. PuckStopsHere

    "As long as sexual perversion is becoming normalized…"

    This is good news for sexual perversion.

    1. comrad_darkness

      When did we normalize perversion of common sense and logic. That's what I want to know.

  16. flamingpdog

    I always love how these Holy Roller clowns rant and rant about how horrible things are in the US, but they always end up thanking the Lawd for "this great nation". Somebody needs to take a look at the script sometime.

    1. GeorgiaBurning

      Its always been a great place for grifters like him. In most other countries his sort is reduced to living in shacks and begging for small change; which locals fork over just to make them leave.

    2. Pithaughn

      And then they'll say something like the parents whose son just died from bacterial meningitis are so very blessed and lucky because they had the gift of having their son and he'll always be alive with Jesus and in their hearts. No further snark needed, it's built in IMHO.

    3. redarmyzombie

      Silly pdog, EVERYONE know conservatives have a memory span only SLIGHTLY longer than a gnat's!

  17. MarionNYNY

    It's nice that the preacher isn't telling God what to do.
    I'm sure Santorum would have corrected the preacher on the Christian nation stuff, but the preacher is an old with a cane, and Santorum doesn't believe in correcting the olds, no matter what batshit crazy suff they're shouting.

  18. WhatTheHeck

    Sorry Rick, you Catholics are going to be “left behind“ along with the rest of us, cause the Rapture™ is a Christian fundamentalist sort of thing. You are going to be lumped together with the rest of us. So get used to us untouchables now.

  19. sharethegrief

    If we could just capture the energy of Xtian persecution, we could tell the Saudis to fuck off.

  20. SorosBot

    He also says "We don't worship Allah!" Um, yes you do; it's the same god, that Jews, Christians and Muslims all worship.

    1. SoBeach

      The whacky fundies don't believe God and Allah are the same. Not at all. To them Allah is a "moon god". And that's about as deep as I care to get into their fuckedupedness.

      1. AbandonHope

        I was about to insert a Sailor Moon joke here, but that would push my geek meter way past 11.

        1. Toomush_Infer

          No Sailor Moon joke reaches 11…. I was thinking more about what the Bondage Fairies might like to do to him…

      2. SorosBot

        Too bad for them they're wrong. The big difference is just that the Muslims view Jesus as just a prophet, not an incarnation of god – but it's the same Yahweh / god the father of the Bible.

          1. MosesInvests

            The Torah is the first five books of what Christians call the "Old Testament"-we Joos just call it the Bible.

    2. arihaya

      let's hope there are no Maronite Christians anywhere near this douche bag, or he will get a nice rim shot

    3. Sassomatic

      That is the kind of plain, simple fact that people like this are unable to comprehend. In fact, a lot of these theocratic state Christians actually have no idea that Islam is a monotheistic religion. Most of them, actually, cannot find their asses in the dark with both hands.

  21. hagajim

    Shouldn't the headline on the YouTube say "Asshole Introduces Santorum – Front Row Sprayed With Stank"?

  22. prommie

    Its ironic that this man would bless a smegma-smeared Santorum, because smegma and santorum is just about the unholiest combination in the universe.

  23. Texan_Bulldog

    This type of dude is why I'm agnostic. I grew up being yelled at by a Southern Baptist preacher who, I shit you not, would come into the Sunday school class and bitch because we (who were only 8 or 9) were only giving $1 in the offering.

  24. doloras

    To be fair, the distinguishing mark of Christianity is the insistence that their prophet is God; of course they're going to project that hubris onto everyone else.

    1. Fare la Volpe

      You got your savior in my deity! You got your deity in my savior!

      Two great tastes that taste like shit for everyone else.

  25. braddkurtz

    Do yourselves a favor and turn on Youtube's closed-captioning. Then go to 2:29 on the top video. You heard it here first, folks: God declares that marriage is between "a man anna wallman."

    1. thebeatgoeson

      Stand up and say "Fallow. Powell. Lalo. Lalo." LOLOL, I say! There are lots of lols in that closed captioning!

  26. AbandonHope

    That's it, time to set up a Shadow Liberal State and shut these assholes out. I call Secretary of Energy. (I like power, but not too much power.)

  27. skoalrebel

    That's the most uplifting thing I've seen since the Kardashian family sex tape. [spit!]

    1. glamourdammerung

      Even more screwed up when people were trying to claim that Wright's statements about blacks historically getting a quite a bit of less than a fair shake in this country was somehow controversial.

  28. northernbassist

    Two things, just in the first 15 seconds:

    1. Did this clown ever stop to think that God's will *is* being done? That the guy in the White House now is supposed to be there?

    2.) "We want revival." Dennis Terry
    "You cain't always git whut you want." Mick Jagger

  29. Makinglifehell

    If fucktwats like this screecher-man really loved Jeebus they should want to meet him immediately, no? But offer them the chance to be with him right now and they're all, "Nah, it's cool. I'll wait." Fucking hypocrites!

  30. fartknocker

    While DHS is monitoring Twatter, Facebook and the Wonketter, should send a note with the lovely YouTube videos of these sermons to the IRS and ask them to look at the church's tax exempt status. Shit like this is why she be taxed as a entertainment business and treated as a PAC.

  31. Smitros

    This (practicing if demonstrably imperfect) Christian will let his born in the U.S.A. Buddhist wife be removed from the country as soon as she is pried from his cold, dead hand.

  32. SkinnyNerd

    At 1:38: As long as they continue to kill little babies in our mothers' wombs

    So, uh, dropping bombs on people that may include pregnant women, not cool then? Just asking.

    1. Jukesgrrl

      They're so desperate to have a social conservative back in the White House they'd even take a Catholic. You'd think they would have given up after George "Yes I'm a Christian, I Just Don't Go to Church" Bush didn't give them everything they want. Then again, they HAD a real Christian in Jimmy Carter, but they didn't like him either. Maybe they just enjoy hating.

  33. Allmighty_Manos

    We welcome full religious diversity in the U.S. As long as you're Baptist, Southern Baptist or Methodist.

  34. SheriffRoscoe

    The Christians are tired of being persecuted in America. Here's secret footage of one of their clandestine meetings.

  35. Tommy1733

    I would pay lots of money to be able to totally kiss another guy in the middle of that satanic service. we have got to keep same-sex kissing until things change!

  36. rickmaci

    Good Lord on high, did I really just hear this guy say the god of Abraham, Issac and Jacob is…JESUS?

  37. Neoyorquino

    No snark. I'd love to say something clever, but I'll settle for just saying something. I promised myself I wouldn't just sit on my hands when another knuckle-dragging mouth-breathing bubba defined Christian faith to others as jingo-istic, atheist-bashing, gay-hating xenophobia. The ones that make the loudest noise gather the most attention. For lack of a clever rejoinder, let me just say, "we're not all like that." We just need to speak louder, and more frequently. http://johnshore.com/best-hits-2/

  38. Redhead

    "There's only one God! And his name is Jesus!"

    Errrrm – which of you heathen-atheist-Buddhist-Muslins wants to be the one to correct this asshole on what his own bible says?

    1. MosesInvests

      Okay, I'll go. God's name as told to Moses is the Hebrew letters "Yod-Heh-Vav-Heh", usually transliterated as YHVH or YHWH. Pronunciation is uncertain-traditionally, Jews don't say His name but use the name "Adonai", "My Lord". The Tetragrammaton is an amalgamation of the Hebrew words for "Was-Is-Will Be." In other words, The Eternal.
      Jesus (or JAAAAY-ZUS!) ain't it.

  39. PubOption

    Love his Foghorn Leghorn moment. "We don't worship Buddha…I say, we don't worship Buddha.."

  40. C_R_Eature

    I can't help but notice that, yet again, the Pastafarians have not made the list. This is an unacceptable Outrage.

    We Demand the right to be demeaned, belittled, discriminated against and treated as shittily by the evangelical Christian/Right wing Catholic axis as all the other religions and philosophies!

  41. Sassomatic

    Got no snark for this. Too scared. If these people have their way this country will be a Christian version of Iran. This has nothing to do with going -back- to the way we were before. Fundamentalism is a radical new political philosophy that is asserting itself in many countries, including this one. It is not a joke. It is very, very dangerous.

  42. Burgdorf

    Did Santorum just cough to try to hide his laughing when the preacher man said "I pray tonight for our president"?

  43. Negropolis

    Let me just say that you've got to be pretty fucked in the head to hate Buddhists, and that includes you, fundamentalist Hindus. Sorry.

  44. ttommyunger

    Good rule: never trust a man with two front names. Also, Jesus is coming back, but this time he is really pissed, too, as well as….
