Santorum Campaign Worker Believes God Doesn't Want a Female President

A Santorum campaign staffer who wrote that he believes that children would be harmed if a woman became the leader of the State and thus The Lord in his Almighty Electoral Wisdom would never allow a woman to rise to the office of President has refused to recant or apologize for his antiquated views, saying it was a personal reflection on his faith. Surprise, surprise. The Glass Ceiling in the Republican party is now made out of God.

Jamie Johnson was employed by Michele Bachmann's campaign before he jumped out of the frying pan and into the fire and began working for Rick Santorum last summer. During that transition, he penned an email to a friend wherein he philosophized about what the deal was with ladies trying to be all powerful and shit. He concluded that the reason that women hadn't advance further up the ladder was that God didn't want the ladder to extend upward into churches and the Government. In other words, thanks for playing, dames, but the Lord needs a sandwich.

Johnson defended himself by appealing to his privacy and his general level of expertise on matters of how God feels about stuff, saying that he had sent the email from a personal account and that his observations were based on 25 years of Biblical study. I hope for the sake of his eternal soul that he's never worn mixed fibers or eaten a shrimp.

When he's not fluffing Rick Santorum, Johnson spends his time owning a Christian radio station in Iowa and hanging out in Pizza Ranches . And, since he's such a God expert, probably giving away all of his possessions to the poor. That's what right wing evangelicals usually can be found doing, right?
