Who’s the better Christian, Santorum or Obama

To the Editor:

So Rick Santorum is questioning the president’s Christianity. Having taken the biblical reading Matthew 25:31-46 to heart as a requirement for eternal salvation, I question which man is closer to Christ.
Christ said that if you help the poor you will be saved. If you do not you will suffer eternal damnation. There was no equivocation, no “But some poor are lazy” – no exceptions in Christ’s words.
Based on these words, who do you think is following Jesus Christ more closely, i.e. feed the hungry, aid the sick, clothe the naked, etc, – Barack Obama or Rick Santorum?
Let’s go further. The U.S. ranks about 33rd in the world in infant mortality. Which man wants to increase Medicaid to help keep children alive and who wants to reduce it? (Isn’t this a Pro-Life issue ?)
Over half the elderly will starve to death without Social Security. Adding the increased costs of privatized Medicare to this greatly reduced income, how many will die prematurely? What will Christ say to these men when they meet Him face to face?
