"It's no wonder President Obama wants every kid to go to college," said the former Pennsylvania senator. "The indoctrination that occurs in American universities is one of the keys to the left holding and maintaining power in America. And it is indoctrination. If it was the other way around, the ACLU would be out there making sure that there wasn't one penny of government dollars going to colleges and universities, right?"
He continued: "If they taught Judeo-Christian principles in those colleges and universities, they would be stripped of every dollar. If they teach radical secular ideology, they get all the government support that they can possibly give them. Because you know 62 percent of children who enter college with a faith conviction leave without it."
Santorum went on to encourage his audience not to "give money" to colleges and universities that he said are causing harm to the country.
"I'll bet you there are people in this room who give money to colleges and universities who are undermining the very principles of our country every single day by indoctrinating kids with left-wing ideology," he said. "And you continue to give to these colleges and universities. Let me have a suggestion: Stop it."

I'm in college right now, getting my master's in applied IT. There are Christian student organizations on campus, but I haven't encountered any "radical secular ideology" in any of my classes.
And if a college education is so EVIL, then why do all the Republican presidential candidates have one?

If your colleges indoctrinate your kids with left-wing ideology, how come you only have two right-wing parties?
The very principles of your country includes Freedom of Religion. If the universities indoctrinated the kids with Judeo-Christian values, they would not have Freedom of Religion, and the ACLU would indeed be fighting for their rights to have that Freedom.
Poor wittle scaredy Ricky, that nasty radical secular ideology of "Think for yourself, make up your own mind based on evidence." is soo frightening.
The GOP needs more mindless Christ-robots, who vote like their parents and grandparents did, and happily become cannon fodder when they grow up.

I'd like to know how the Camerons, Sarkozys and Merkels of this world are going to keep a straight face dealing with this idiot if he does become President.

Knowledge is bad.
Stupid is good.
Thanks for clearing that up shit-for-brains.

Or maybe because, without college, this computer wouldn't exist. Interesting, eh?

You don't get secularism, do you, Sir Anal Seepage?

"Let me HAVE a suggestion..."
If Mr Santorum graduated from college or university, he would know enough English to speak it correctly.

Well of course they come out more left than right, didn't he read the study that said conservatives and racists are more than likely dumb than anything else?

I'm not even American, and yet I'm terrified at the thought of Licking Lubed-assholes becoming president. Bastard, that's what he is.

Governments are secular, stupid.
They're indoctrinated with reality...

Oh no, knowledge and critical thinking are your worst enemy. Yeah we know.

By the time kids are at university, I think they're old enough to decide their ideology for themselves. You just don't like it because they're not choosing your stupid one.

Knowledge kills belief in myths. Does that mean if someone threw a textbook at you, would you explode?
