Rick Santorum kicked off his remarks at the Values Voter Summit today by declaring that the United States will never be a great nation or receive God’s blessing so long as gay marriage and the right to an abortion remains legal.

Bragging that he has attended every VVS event since it began ten years ago, Santorum thanked those in attendance for “standing up and bringing to this city the issues that are at the core of the problems in this country.”

“America is never going to be a great country if we’re a country that kills our children in the womb, ever!” he said. “We’re never going to be blessed by God if we’re a country that kills our children in the womb. We are never going to be a great country if we allow for the destruction of the American family, that’s what’s happened over the last 50 years.”

For Certain Christians, Lying for Jesus is Justified in the Abortion Wars

Leviticus 19:11 makes clear: "Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another."There's quite a bit of the Bible that conservative Christian activists tend to leave out, but Biblical prohibitions against lying are routinely given short shrift by those intent on seeing God's will done on Earth. We don't have to look far for examples of it -- from Christians arguing that LGBT people are predators to politicians pretending that being gay is a choice, these lies are common.The Washington Post has a good look at another popular outlet for faith-based lying: the abortion debate, and the notoriously deceptive idea of "crisis pregnancy centers."
