On CBS's Face the Nation this morning, host Bob Schieffer pressed Rick Santorum on what exactly he meant when he warned a Columbus crowd yesterday against Barack Obama's "agenda," which he characterized as being about "some phony ideal, some phony theology ... Not a theology based on the Bible ... but no less a theology." Santorum had told reporters immediately after the speech that he wasn't questioning the president's Christian faith, just criticizing the way he "imposes his values on the church."

He expanded on that notion on Face the Nation:

"I wasn't suggesting the president's not a Christian. I accept the fact the president's a Christian. I just said that when you have a world view that elevates the world above man, and says that we can't take those resources because we're going to harm the Earth by things that are frankly just not scientifically proven, like for example the politicization of the whole global warming debate, I mean this is just all an attempt to centralize power and give more power to the government. This is not questioning the president's beliefs in Christianity. I'm talking about the belief that man should be in charge of the Earth, and have dominion on it, and be good stewards of it."
