Santorum believes in sin, Post profile alerts readers

Catholic World News - March 20, 2012

Continuing to call attention to the religious beliefs of Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum, the Washington Post carries a confused article that quotes from a speech Santorum gave 3 years ago at Ave Maria University, and speaks at length about the candidate’s ties with Opus Dei.

Santorum is not a member of Opus Dei, nor is Ave Maria University affiliated with the movement. The Post story also mentions that Santorum’s parish is regarded as conservative, apparently because the pastor preaches about sin. The Post story suggests that it is remarkable that Santorum, too, believes in the existence of sin.
