Only Huckabee, Cruz, Santorum Rally Behind Navy Chaplain Attacked for Christian Beliefs

Lieutenant Commander Wes Modder, a highly decorated veteran who has served 19 years in the Navy and now serves as a chaplain, is now at risk of losing his job because of an accusation that he is unable to “function in the diverse and pluralistic environment” in the Navy. Modder was on track for early promotion until his assistant, a married gay officer, filed a complaint making claims that Modder says are completely false. The claims include being critical of premarital sex, telling a student that homosexuality was Biblically wrong, and criticizing an unmarried student for becoming pregnant. Modder insists that none

Santorum Talks Religious Liberty in Ohio

On March 10, Rick Santorum spoke at a church in West Chester on the importance of religious liberty. Before giving his speech, Santorum talked to the Cincinnati Enquirer, telling their reporter: I think one of the most important things we have to understand when it comes to our school system is our schools have to educate Americans as to our founding principles and what they’re based upon. We are a country that’s based on the founding principles of western civilization. Now does that mean we shouldn’t respect all people from different religions and different places in the world?

Santorum: “Pro-Freedom, Pro-Family, Pro-Growth, and Also Pro-Worker”

Sen. Rick Santorum’s CPAC speech carved out a niche for himself as the Blue Collar Conservative, the champion of the ‘little guy.’ Santorum called on the GOP to be “pro-freedom, pro-family, pro-growth, and also pro-worker.”  He gets an A-plus from me as the only candidate I have seen so far to name the reality the average family is facing—a declining standard of living: “We have seen that wages over time have stagnated, the economy median income is declining. . .We need a vision that is focused on working men and women who are struggling in America today. . . and

Santorum Says Stagnant Wages the Problem

Breaking from libertarian orthodoxy, Sen. Rick Santorum endorsed a modest raise to $8.75 in the minimum wage over three years to show voters Republicans care about stagnant wages. “I’m not for what Barack Obama wants to do,” he told the Missouri Republican Party’s Lincoln Days gathering, (raise the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour). “But, the idea that the Republican Party, at a time when median wages are stagnant, is opposing the minimum wage is stupid politics. . .Sometimes when someone is hurting, they want to know that one thing more than anything else. People don’t think we care.” I

Santorum Pushes for New GOP Economic Message

While speaking at a Missouri Republican Party event on February 21, former Senator Rick Santorum advocated for moving away from the GOP’s “tired message” on economics and instead adopted a more “caring” one. He stated, in particular, that Republicans should avoid exclusively touting efforts to “cut taxes for the rich to create growth” and instead support measures that connect with a struggling middle class, such as raising the minimum wage to $8.75 gradually over three years. “People don’t think we care,” Santorum said of the GOP. “Sometimes when someone is hurting, they want to know that one thing more than anything

Is Rick a Catholic?

Some Catholics are upset that a lovely WaPo profile of Rick Santorum and his wife, Karen, and their family’s struggles with raising Bella did not mention he’s a Catholic. Of course, this is after Time magazine called him one of the 25 most influential evangelicals in America. Maggie Gallagher is editor of ThePulse2016.com.
