Rick Santorum: Let’s call secularism a religion so it can be banned from the classroom

Published

Former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum railed against the exclusion of conservative Christianity from education in an interview with American Family Association radio host Bryan Fischer on Tuesday, Right Wing Watch reported.

“I think we should start calling secularism a religion,” Santorum told a grinning Fischer. “Because if we did, then we could ban that, too, because that’s what they’ve done: they’ve hidden behind the fact that the absence of religion is not a religion of itself.”

The former Pennsylvania senator, who partnered with Fischer’s organization in the making of his newest “docudrama,” argued that secularism has “moral teachers” that should classify it as a religion.

“The idea that, if you take religion out of the public square, you take the Bible out of the classroom, that that’s neutral. Well no, that’s not neutral,” Santorum argued. “It’s a different worldview.”

According to Think Progress, Santorum has said that the film, One Generation Away, would attract protests from secularists, saying, “I’m a dog whistle to the left,” and calling it an opportunity to further his call to prioritize the Bible in school curriculums.

Watch Santorum’s remarks to Fischer, as posted online on Tuesday, below.

The president continues to challenge his loss to Joe Biden in several key states, but the "Morning Joe" co-host said he's just hurting himself psychologically by continuing this battle that's doomed to failure.

"When you look at these states, and every day we deliver the news about recounts or how close different state official, county officials are to certifying the vote, somebody close to Trump, if they knew him, if they understood him, if they could talk to him, they would explain to him he's re-traumatizing himself every time he loses again," Brzezinski said. "He loses each state now once, twice, three times, and all that does is churn him up and has him tweeting terrible things, trying to think of how he can make this pain stop."
