“I don’t believe in an America where the separation of church and state is absolute,” Santorum remarked. “The idea that the church can have no influence or no involvement in the operation of the state is absolutely antithetical to the objectives and vision of our country.”

“Kennedy for the first time, articulated a vision that said, ‘No, faith is not allowed in the public square. I will keep it separate,’” the candidate claimed. “Go out and read the speech. ‘I will have nothing to do with faith. I won’t consult with people of faith.’ It was an absolutist doctrine that was foreign at the time of 1960.”

“But make you want to throw up?” Stephanopoulos pressed.

“Absolutely!” Santorum exclaimed. “To say people of faith have no role in the public square, you bet that makes you throw up. What kind of country do we live in that says only people of non-faith can come in the public square and make their case.”

“That makes me throw up and it should make every American,” he insisted.
