I can't honestly believe that the USINPAC seriously considers Rick Santorum
to be someone worth putting faith in.
This scumbag is a motivated anti-Hindu, very deeply involved with Gospel For Asia, Operation Mobilization India, the Dalit Freedom Network, World Vision and the Joshua Project. These organizations sponsor NGOs all over India as front organizations for predatory Evangelist missionary activity. They have pumped millions of dollars into Tamil Nadu over the last few years, and the fruits of their investment have become evident in the recent Church-driven Koodankulam "protests"; clearly, their agenda goes far beyond religious conversion, and includes the creation of fifth-column organizations tasked with undermining Indian interests from within.
Google the association between Rick Santorum and "Dalit Freedom Network"
: a Hindu-demonizing, ultra-Christist missionary organization masquerading as "Liberation Theology" for Dalits, whose primary demand is that SC/STs who convert to Christianity should continue to avail of reservations from the Government of India!
Here is a letter from Santorum to an opportunistic scoundrel named Joseph D'Souza, International President of the Dalit Freedom Network. In this letter, Santorum personally thanks D'Souza for taking on a "vital role" in an event hosted by Santorum, "Religious Freedom Day on the Hill."http://www.dalitnetwork.org/eeimages/up ... om_Ltr.pdf
Apparently the entire purpose of "Religious Freedom Day on the Hill" was to publicly bash non-Christian nations (India prominent among them) who were accused of stifling the "religious freedom of minorities" because they did not allow rampant, unrestricted conversion activity by predatory Evanjihadi missionaries. It is important to recognize that Santorum used his office as a US Senator to enable this bashing to happen in a quasi-official setting, under the auspices of the United States Congress.
Santorum's intention in hosting such an event was clear; he was issuing an explicit threat to such countries that the power of the US legislature would be employed against them, on the pretext of "religious freedom", if they did not grant full and free access to the US-based Soul Harvesting Industry.

DFN President Speaks at First Religious Freedom Day on the Hill
by Ben Marsh, Washington D.C. Co-ordinator, Dalit Freedom Network
Posted on: June 21, 2006
The Dalit Freedom Network’s International President, Joseph D’souza, spoke yesterday at the first Religious Freedom Day on the Hill. The event was hosted by Senator Rick Santorum, Chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, and included speeches from House Majority Whip Roy Blunt, Senator Norm Coleman, Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom John Hanford, Representative Todd Akin, Representative Trent Franks, Senator Sam Brownback, and Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton. Held in the Dirksen Senate Office Building, the event was attended by more than a hundred notable international human rights advocates, religious leaders, Members of Congress, and Congressional staff.
Dr. D’souza spoke on a panel moderated by Nina Shea, Vice-Chair of the US Commission on International Religious Freedom, entitled “A Look Around the World.” In his speech, he outlined the challenges facing minority religions in India in the light of rising Hindu extremism. Highlighting the link between caste oppression and religious violence, he challenged the global community to investigate ongoing caste abuse and to protest the rise in anti-conversion legislation targeting minorities and low-caste people.
In addition to Dr. D’souza’s discussion about India, a few other notable speakers, including Dr. Paul Marshall, Senior Fellow at Freedom House’s Center for Religious Freedom, expressed concern about the rise in anti-Christian and anti-Muslim legislation passed in several Indian states. Dr. Marshall highlighted the inherent contradictions in such legislation as they go against international law in India’s constitution.
If Santorum is on the 2012 Republican ticket, even as VP candidate, then it is imperative from the viewpoint of Indian interests that the Republicans LOSE. I would take Obama any day over a White House that lets this filth within a mile of it.
Any Indian, in particular any Dharmic Indian who votes for a ticket that includes Rick Santorum deserves to be spat upon.
