At a speech before a group of pastors in McKinney, Texas, Rick Santorum said that while he is a man of faith, even of deep conviction in his faith, he has no desire to be the “pastor of this country” and he is not just a man of faith, but one of reason too:

I just think it’s important that we have somebody speaking up here as president who is wiling to be very public about the role of faith in our society, the role of family in our society – those bulwark institutions. And it’s not because I want to be the pastor of the United States. I have no intention and no desire to be the pastor of this country. …

I approach every issue that I deal with between the two wings that I refer to as faith and reason. …But we have an obligation as a public official to rigorously advance both, right? And not just to accept as an article of faith but to show to people of faith and no faith how this is best and just and right for our society. And so, just so you understand where I’m coming from. Yes I’m a person of faith… But I want you to understand that I’m not just a person of faith, because there are people in America who look in civil government not just for what your faith is calling you to do, but what is right according to reason.
