Rick Santorum Doesn’t tithe but wants the Christian vote?

So I was watching fox news last night and the guy was interviewing Rick Santorum.

They showed that Barack Obama and Mitt Romney both tithed or donated 13-14% of their income to churches or charities.

THE AMAZING THING:

Rick Santorum only did 1.8%!!!!!!!!  And hasn’t done any more than that since 2006.

Man, Fox News just puts the hammer down on the hypocrisy of some of these candidates.

First of all, Rick Santorum is heavily marketing himself as the Christian conservative alternative.  He is going after the religious vote.  It’s just that plain and simple.

His excuse for not tithing more was that money was tight and he has a handicap kid.

So the hypocrisy is so overwhelming here I’m struggling for words.  This is the guy speaking at churches and condemning Obama for attacking the church.

As any person who had the bible beat into their head will know; the whole theory of tithing and giving to God is that you are trusting in Him with your money BEFORE anything else.  That you give at least 10% off the TOP, not when you’re done paying your bills.  Giving 2% of your income AFTER you pay your bills and only if you have something left over is just plain stupid and completely defeats the entire point.

The fact is that Rick Santorum never trusted God with his money, and wowserama did Fox news call him out on that one.

This wouldn’t really even be a big deal if this wasn’t the guy that conservative Christians are voting for and the guy who is touting himself as the religious choice in the election.  I mean if someone’s not going for a Christian vote, who cares if they don’t give part of their money away, but for someone staking his campaign on religion, well… Rick Santorum just got ruined.
