God (via Rick Santorum) to Women: You Can't Be President

BlogHer Spotlight

[Editor's note: With the South Carolina primary coming up, it’s time to talk about Rick Santorum. Apparently, the presidential wannabe believes women’s place is in the home and not in the White House. And that God wants it that way. I’m sure women across the country will be thrilled to hear that. As Jenna Goudreau reveals at Forbes.com, this fascinating tidbit surfaced in an email by one of Santorum’s top staffers.--Mona]

She writes:

On Friday, The Des Moines Register reported that Jamie Johnson, Iowa coalitions director for GOP presidential hopeful Rick Santorum, sent an email from his private account in June implying that children would suffer if America had a female president.

Johnson, tasked with building support for Santorum among Iowa’s evangelical community, wrote in the email: “The question then comes, ‘Is it God’s highest desire, that is, His biblically expressed will, … to have a woman rule the institutions of the Family, the Church, and the State?’”
