  •  Santorum is saying in the second paragraph (0+ / 0-)

    that it is not about his moral beliefs, it is about the government forcing people of conscience to betray their beliefs - by providing or using contraception?  He is using that old republican tactic of it's not about "this", it's about "this".  All the time being vague about what "this" is.  Additionally, his language is used as Pavlov's bell to get his followers all worked up over the "Government forcing you to do something against your will, thereby taking away your liberty and freedom".  The raging right loves this catch phrase/myth and repeat it all the time regarding many issues they hate, it's always about taking away their "liberty and freedom".  I have asked many of the rabid republican people I know to define what they mean by "liberty and freedom"; not one of them were able to do so.  Sad, but true.
