Rick Santorum Once Upon A Time

Oh, the way back machine:

WASHINGTON — Senator Rick Santorum, Republican of Pennsylvania, yesterday alleged that Senators Edward M. Kennedy and John F. Kerry of Massachusetts “did nothing” about sexual abuse in the Catholic Church in 2002.

“They spoke nothing. They sat by and let this happen,” Santorum said.

Kennedy and Kerry blasted Santorum’s comments in statements issued by their aides. Santorum’s comments yesterday escalated the controversy about a 2002 article he wrote saying it was “no surprise” that the abuse scandal occurred in what he called the liberal bastion of Boston.

Emphasis mine.

And more Ricky:

It is startling that those in the media and academia appear most disturbed by this aberrant behavior, since they have zealously promoted moral relativism by sanctioning “private” moral matters such as alternative lifestyles. Priests, like all of us, are affected by culture. When the culture is sick, every element in it becomes infected. While it is no excuse for this scandal, it is no surprise that Boston, a seat of academic, political and cultural liberalism in America, lies at the center of the storm.

So then, one might ask, what does it have to say about the Republican Party that it now lies at the center of that same storm?
