Meet Rick Santorum, Your New Personal Jesus

Over the weekend everyone’s favorite Holy Roman Emperor, er, presidential candidate picked up the support of influential evangelists seeking to stymie Mitt Romney’s momentum as the GOP primaries move to South Carolina:

The group of more than 100 Christian conservatives who gathered at a Texas ranch this weekend voted overwhelmingly to throw their support behind Mr Santorum in a bid to consolidate conservative opposition to Mr Romney. One organiser described the vote as an “unexpected supermajority” for Mr Santorum, which they hoped would send a message to conservative voters and candidates alike before next Saturday’s crucial primary.

Santorum also spoke at a “Faith, Family & Freedom” rally in Florence, South Carolina:

If all you think we need to do to get this economy going and get this country on the right track is to cut government and reduce taxes, you don’t understand America.

America is a moral enterprise, not an economic enterprise. Don’t compromise on what you know is best for this country. South Carolina, vote your conscience, vote your values.

In honor of Rick’s latest endorsement, let’s “reach out and touch faith” with Depeche Mode:
