Wow. Emphasis is mine.

Santorum said he believes Muslims’ religious views cannot be changed or altered, so Middle Easterners reject American, democratic ideals.

“A democracy could not exist because Mohammed already made the perfect law,” Santorum said. “The Quran is perfect just the way it is, that’s why it is only written in Islamic.”

“Islamic,” of course, is not a language, but a religion.  This is particularly disturbing, given that Santorum, earlier in the speech, was tweaking students for their ignorance of the religion.

Santorum also gave the audience a lecture on Islam. When he asked the audience who knew the difference between the Sunnis and the Shi’ites, three audience members raised their hands. Santorum said this proved his point – America has been at war with Islam for seven years and doesn’t know the two branches.

Boy am I glad Casey trounced him in his re-election effort in 2006.
