Chatting with fellow friend of the church James Dobson, on Wednesday, former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum told the listeners of his radio program that the Obama administration is actively trying to eradicate faith in the country.


Discussing Dobson's new "dystopian thriller," Santorum saw the work of fiction as eerily prescient.

"[In the book] you end up with the godlessness and that’s really what we’re seeing this administration now doing, something that is historic in America," said Santorum. "I have never seen anything that is so insidious as the government regulations and the court cases that this administration is bringing, they are overtly hostile to people of faith."

Although he failed to capture the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, Santorum hasn't faded away. Apart from his new radio program, Patriot Voices Radio, Santorum last week publicly thanked an atheist group for their attempt to shame him with numerous billboards calling out the former Pennsylvania Senator's expressed love of god and family.

As for the rest of the Santorum family, it appears Rick's son also has a little campaigning in his blood, according to New York Daily News. John Santorum, a cadet at The Citadel, the legendary military academy in South Carolina, is running for class president. While he no doubt has his own merits, the younger Santorum has been proudly showing his candidate pedigree during the campaign.

On a poster of him and his father, John also added the campaign slogan: "Help Me Finish What My Dad Couldn’t.”

The Citadel's class election will be held on Wednesday night.
