Rampaging against modernity

Tom Ferrick is convinced that Rick Santorum "has one of the finest minds of the 13th century." Heh. Great line.

But Ferrick is serious, sort of. Writing for the NY Times, he elaborated:
"It was meant to elicit a laugh, but there’s truth behind the remark. No Vatican II for Santorum. His belief system is the fixed and firm Catholicism of the Council of Trent in the mid-16th century. And Santorum is a warrior for those beliefs."
I simply don't know what to make of Mr. Santorum. Nor do I care to learn ("O, that way madness lies," said King Lear). But his zealotry really is breathtaking.
