Gallery: Rick Santorum Says President Obama Holds “Earth Above Man”

 

Former Senator Rick Santorum said yesterday that he thinks President Obama “elevates the Earth above man,” and should rethink his dedication to “radical environmentalists.” Santorum has recently come into the political spotlight thanks to his steady rise up the Republican primary ladder over the past few weeks. This past weekend Santorum was accused of questioning President Barack Obama’s religion at a campaign stop in Ohio. When asked about his statement the following day on Face the Nation, Santorum explained that he wasn’t questioning the President’s religion but rather his dedication to the human race. It seems Santorum might have forgotten that without the Earth, there is no human race and that perhaps the President is just trying to take good care of this big blue planet we call home.

    Humans are a passing phase in the universe. A unnatural fluke of chemistry. If we want to survive this phase of history: the Ravager Phase we’ll need to replace democracy with meritocracy and form a global world government – a rule of scientists – where money is no longer used but is replaced by people working together in local communities for each other’s welfare. This may seem impracticable to those brainwashed to believe that their existence is only to accumulate money to live or to aggrandise themselves (like the elites of America do with their false American dream), but I can assure you that when we fall off the oil cliff (2050-2080) unless humans do this there will only be anarchy and a Dark Age with Nukes in the hands of terrorists. We’ll need to make Dyson Rings and only a world goverment run by scientists can achieve that. Money is purely a promise – and its value depends almost solely on the ability to purchase energy. Without oil it will become valueless. The cause of the 2008/9 depression was an oil spike. This is only the beginning of many such spikes. Printing electronic money will only lead to global inflation, revolution and a rise in terrorism. Rick is a prick.

    Actually the Bible states that “The earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it (Psalm 24:1).” Our heavenly Father allows us to live here and enjoy it’s bountiful resources. But Rick Santorum thinks it all belongs to us, to use and abuse as we see fit. Really? Is that the way you treat a gift? What a slob!

    not all natural resources are finite. Some Energy resources for instance are not finite. The sun technically might be finite however if it were to run out then i think we would have bigger issues. Also if the wind were to stop i think we would have bigger issues.
    On another note how far does putting the environment before man are they willing to go. Because if that were the case killing off the entire human race would be putting the environment before man to save what’s left of the environment.

    Rick Santorium is supposed to be a religious man. Yet these comments about President Obama and his preference of the earth versus man, makes him sound like an imbecil. if you believe in God, we are charged tomtake care of the planet. Spouting utter nonsense.

    I’m thinking the Santorum family might want to check their water supply. Seems like there might be contaminated with lead or mercury.
