Muslim group denounces Santorum for promoting religious profiling

The group reminded Santorum that Jesus Christ was also from the Middle East and could fit the profile that law enforcement would use under a Santorum-like policy. Santorum, a Catholic, speaks frequently about his religious convictions and their role in his political ideology.

Santorum’s campaign did not immediately respond to inquiries seeking comment.

The former senator, who frequently couches his views on social and world issues in theological “good versus evil language, has raised eyebrows in the past for his statements about Islamic law, Muslims living in the United States and a proposed Muslim center near Ground Zero.
