The Nunny State

I missed Senator Sanctum Santorum's speechlette at the Republicon, but apparently Peggy Noonan had him praising big gov'mint:

But Santorum said too many mothers on welfare end up trying to raise their children without a father -- something he said President Bush's faith-based social programs are trying to change.

"We now ask, 'Would you like some help in building that relationship?'" Santorum said. "And if the mother and the father says yes, we pay for marriage counseling with a family therapist or a pastor, rabbi, imam or priest."

If you want healthcare, or day care or a job, you can pound sand. If you want a priest to reveal the secrets of a successful marriage, you're in luck.
