Liberal Christians: Santorum says none of you are Christians [View all]

ANSWER:
I could buy that. Again, yes, it goes to the larger question of whether I could buy that overall from that point of view. But is there such thing as a sincere liberal Christian, which says that we basically take this document and re-write it ourselves? Is that really Christian? Thatís a bigger question for me. And the answer is, no, itís not. I donít think there is such a thing. To take what is plainly written and say that I donít agree with that, therefore, I donít have to pay attention to it, means youíre not what you say you are. Youíre a liberal something, but youíre not a Christian. Thatís sort of how I look at it.

When you go so far afield of that and take what is a salvation story and turn it into a liberation theology story, which is done in the Catholic world as well as in the evangelical world, you have abandoned Christendom, in my opinion. And you donít have a right to claim it.
