Rick Santorum (R-PA), former Senator of my home state of Pennsylvania somehow has become a Christian Historian…

“The idea that the Crusades and the fight of Christendom against Islam is somehow an aggression on our part is absolutely anti-historical,” Santorum said in Spartanburg on Tuesday. “And that is what the perception is by the American left who hates Christendom.”

He added, “They hate Western civilization at the core. That’s the problem.”

After asserting that Christianity had not shown any “aggression” to the Muslim world, the former Pennsylvania senator — who is considering a 2012 run for the White House — argued that American intervention in the Middle East helps promote “core American values.”

Might I suggest Santorum read Holy Warriors by Jonathan Phillips and that Santorum sticks to what he knows…which isn’t Church History.
