Comments:  | Leave A Comment

Former Pennsylvania Senator and current GOP candidate defended his statement from last October in which he claimed that President John F. Kennedy’s speech on the separation of church and state made him “want to throw up.”

On ABC News, “This Week” with George Stephanopolous, Santorum reiterated his claim that the separation between church and state made him “want to throw up”

The Huffington Post reports:

“I don’t believe in an America where the separation of church and state are absolute,” he told ‘This Week’ host George Stephanopoulos. “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…to say that people of faith have no role in the public square? You bet that makes me want to throw up.”

The GOP candidate was responding to comments he made last October. He had said that he “almost threw up” after reading JFK’s 1960 speech in which he declared his commitment to the separation of church and state.
