Rick Santorum Needs Online Reputation Management and a Bible

Posted on January 4, 2012 by in People of Interest

Rick Santorum has a Google search engine “problem”. Rick Santorum is not the only person or company having a Google search engine problem, which as several companies today are hiring help for their online reputation management issues or “Google problems”.  For whatever reason Rick Santorum has done absolutely nothing about his.  It has been proven that taking action and hiring an SEO company or online reputation management company can in fact make a positive improvement on search engine rankings.  The fact that Mr. Santorums Google problem has continued on for years and left to sit has many people wondering why hasn’t Santorum engaged in some type of action that could help to eliminate this?

What course of action can Presidential candidate Rick Santorum take with his little Google predicament?  Rick Santorum could very well either work with a good SEO consultant, an online reputation management agency, a link development service, or perhaps try to get several men and women on his team to start employing some sort of SEO and back link building  software each day.  The Santorum Google problem has been a widely spoke about SEO “case study” that has been followed with great interest.  Dan Savage was able to impact search engine rankings with his website that in a round about way redefined Santorum.  The Savage website was apparently setup for vengeful and “Savage” purposes that were hurtful to retaliate against the remarks of Rick Santorum.

We do not condone such behavior.  Christians should always stand up for their beliefs rather than slowly becoming a part of the “norm” of society, as we are told in Romans 12:2 “And be not conformed to this world: but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

Santorum and Savage Recommendations For Both

Matthew 7:12
Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.

The above verse is also known as “the golden rule”, and you may recognize it as “do unto others as you would have them do unto you”.

One thing I have never understood with Evangelical politicians is how they try to make a stand about 1 sin to try to get followers or votes.  Okay, so Santorum wants to take a stand against homosexual marriage in our country as Christians should, this isn’t a problem.  But what about adulterers, thieves, liars, and every other sin that the people of our country face today?  The entire country is lost in sin and needs to come to repentance.

2012 could be a BIG year for many things.  These verses should speak clearly to the church in America

Revelation 3:14-22

 14And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;

15I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.

16So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

17Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

18I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

19As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

20Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

21To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

22He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

If you are a Christian – are you lukewarm, cold, or hot?

Rick Santorum and Reputation Management

Rick SantorumRick Santorum has plenty of supporters, so why hasn’t his campaign crew been clever enough to engage someone to build a viral campaign by which they request followers to create a link to his endorsed web pages from their blogs, Facebook or myspace, Youtube, or any various other mass media the supporters have access to which would favorably influence the major search engines ratings.

Whoever is running the Presidential campaign for Santorum just isn’t carrying out their particular job in regards to online press as well as reputation management. Now there’s a inundation of queries in the search engines regarding Rick Santorum and then there are some sketchy results that we are positive they want entombed.

Exactly What Should Rick Santorum Do? ? ?

First of all Rick Santorum and the evangelicals of America need to get back to the Bible.  If Santorum wants to proclaim himself as a candidate for the “Evangelicals” I would like him to take the entire message of the Gospel to the campaign, and the “Evangelicals” need to also get back to their Bible and read what our Lord Jesus Christ commanded us to do.  Here are two critical verses that must be understood by Santorum and “Evangelicals” so that we can really make an impact in our country.

John 3:16

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

but wait there’s more…….

John 3:17

For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Missing from the Rick Santorum Message

What seems to be missing from the message  of Rick Santorum when he points out others for their sins?  I would say he is missing the GOSPEL that our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ preached.  Santorum cannot run around with half a message hoping to gain the true Christians to his cause because he is neglecting a big part of the message that Jesus Christ preached.  Real Christians do not condemn others, they preach the Gospel and give them an answer which includes repentance and the acceptance of Jesus Christ to change their lives.

WHY?

Romans 3:23

For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

That is right —– you, me, and Rick Santorum have ALL sinned and come short of the glory of God.  What good is a guy in the White House that preaches sin and morality, but does not give the answer of repentance and Salvation of Jesus Christ Lord and Savior!?!?!?  Can we really transform the country through increased morality without the saving grace of Jesus Christ?  No!  It is Jesus Christ who redeems us and can transform our mind so that the fruits of the Holy Spirit are manifested.  Focus on Jesus Christ first and morality and works will follow.  Without Christ the struggle for morality is already lost because Satan is in control of people until they submit to Jesus Christ.

I am an “evangelical Christian” and I will not vote for Rick Santorum.  I will not vote for any of the candidates being presented on either side.  It’s time to wake up and realize that Jesus Christ is the only answer.  Jesus may not be on this years election ticket, but that doesn’t mean you can’t commit your life to Him and preach the Good News to those that want to hear it.

Rick Santorum -  if you are going to point out the corruption and sin of the world then be a true Christian and point out what our Saviour has done and how He can be a part of anyones life that wishes to accept HIM!  I wish Santorum would stand up and be the first candidate to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ.   It wouldn’t even matter if Rick Santorum won the election because he would be able to spread the saving message of Jesus Christ to millions of people.  And through that message many could be saved.

Look at Tim Tebow.  He didn’t go on to win the Super Bowl but he was an example of how a Christian should act and was never ashamed to acknowledge his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  I would vote for Tim Tebow for president over anyone else currently in the election race.  This season he exemplified what a Christian should be about and how to conduct themselves to spread a message of love.  Santorum has more political experience than Tebow but I think it’s about time America kicked all the “experienced” politicians out of office and let real leaders run the country.

Matthew 28:16-20

The GREAT Commission

16Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them.

17And when they saw him, they worshiped him: but some doubted.

18And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

19Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

20Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.  Amen.

This is what Jesus taught.  Yes, he taught us to show others a recognition of their sin, but so that they could repent of it and be saved in Christ.  Preaching sin without giving the message of the saving grace of Jesus Christ is an empty Gospel.  Rick Santorum – use your platform to show people how to become followers of Christ, not to tell them which sins they are committing.   America, it’s time to wake up.

What Else Does Rick Santorum Need?

A firm that makes a specialty of online reputation management is undoubtedly a thing Rick Santorum could use, as well as a crash course in Biblical evangelism so that he can use his persuasion and influence to truly make a difference.   Rick Santorum please include Jesus Christ in your message.

    Well you have certainly given Rick Santorum a boost with this article ;-)

    Santorum has been foolish. He is unlikely to match the sheer number of links SpreadingSantorum has built since 2003. The number is growing again because of his campaign.

  3. Daryl L. Unnasch 13 January 2012 at 9:09 pm #

    Rick Santorum is a fine candidate, but he has fallen behind Newt. It’s imperative, that we deny Romney the nomination. That means that Perry and Santorum need to drop out – and NOW!

  4. Norminha D'Souza 13 January 2012 at 9:50 pm #

    Mr Santorum is not condemning anyone, for he is the greatest sinner, like me and you. Why people feel offended when the truth is revealed? To call homosexuality an illness or bestiality is not an insult or accusation. Only a sick person can compare himself and act like a beast.
    Male and female He created, says my Book of Genesis of my Bible. Christians must invoke the Holy Spirit to open their minds, every time they open the great book, otherwise they are coming with excuses to accuse someone for telling the truth.
    We all are sinners and Christ died for our sins, but it does not mean we are assured salvation -whoever thinks that way is a heretic. We have a lot of homework to do while on this earth. The Bible mentions hell more times than heaven folks.
    If I love my brother -I do- I must tell him the things the way they are, not the way he wants to hear them. It is either white or black, not grey, for that is the devil’s favorite color.
    America was found on Christian roots, so please do not try to re-invent the wheel, for it is not rocket science to understand what science is telling us about homosexuality.
    For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world, Jesus.
    Mr Santorum is not my candidate, but justice must be rendered, even to our political enemy, as Jesus taught us.

    I agree totally that we all need to get back to the Bible and to take it literally for what it says. We are not to condemn because we are not the judge but the word is what we are to use to make righteous judements. We only judge the condition of a persons heart to know how to help them with their relationship with God.

  6. MickAuGrec 19 January 2012 at 10:36 am #

    Some interesting comments. I think Savage is delivering suitable earthly retribution, in a manner G’d would extol, for Santorum’s vitriolic comments directed specifically against the homosexual contingency of sinners. Apparently Santorum’s online presence is working for him, those who support him seem to be aware the Savage site is a canard.

  7. krystal 19 January 2012 at 2:49 pm #

    Saying homosexuals should not get married, does not mean a candidate is focusing on one sin and ignoring others. There are laws against plenty of sins and this is a law being debated and a candidate needs to address it. It is practical. It is not practical to use the argument that now every sin must be addressed, the ones being pushed to the forefront need to be addressed. In response to him needing a “reputation manager”, maybe he is confident that God will move one people to vote if he should become president. The media has chosen who they want to win and who they are pushing into the spot light. They barely made mention of Santorum until Iowa and still barely talk about him now. None of that matters to most educated people and people who pray about who to vote for. We see through the bias. It doesn’t matter to me what anyone says about any of the candidates, I will make my decision based on what God says to me. If I was running I wouldn’t hire a “reputation manager’ either.

    Reply to Krystal
    —- I agree with your first couple of sentences, however you missed whole point of the post, which is to spread the Gospel, even if you are running for office!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If this candidate was Gods choice they wouldn’t need to hire a “reputation manager” because God has the power to do anything. But I can assure you, there is not a single candidate running right now that God would approve of.

    For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. James 2:10

    It doesn’t really matter how many laws Santorum or any other political candidate want to make. Until they actually step up and tell people that repentance and acceptance of Jesus Christ is the only way to the Father those people all are still condemned to hell even if they aren’t able to legally get married. So sure, we can make a bunch of “laws” in the U.S. Or we can start preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ and lead people to the savior. Politicians that try to gain votes on a platform of law never lead people to Christ, they just get votes and then do as the elites tell them to do. Politicians in the U.S. are bought and paid for. Don’t think for a second that if someone is standing up and saying they don’t like certain sins that makes them a Christian. They might be, but until they start actually preaching Jesus Christ and salvation they aren’t doing what the Savior instructed us to do when he left. THE GREAT COMMISSION – SPREAD HIS WORD

    Now why wouldn’t a candidate want to proclaim the saving grace of Jesus Christ?
    Well, it’s one thing to get a bunch of people in Iowa all fired up because of your stance against homosexual marriage – there are plenty of atheists in Iowa that are also against gay marriage, but then if that candidate started started preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ he would lose all the anti-gay atheist voters. Hmmmmmm, quite the dilemma. Is Santorum doing Gods work, or is he walking a fine line to get the most voters in Iowa. I would say it’s called a political strategy….

    You said you wish Rick Santorum would stand up and be the first candidate to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Well, he can’t be the first because there already is a candidate who is no longer in the race, but who has been doing that from the beginning. Congresswoman Michele Bachmann has shared the message of salvation through faith alone in Christ alone many, many times throughout her entire campaign and her years in office, with the whole world hearing it through C-Span and other media outlets.

    Here is one of many links:

    God Bless Michelle and may she continue to spread the message of Salvation. Thank you for your reply.

    People, everywhere, live their full lives, and in it all, the merciful Angeles are never known to them. I have wondered why for a long time, and believe it is because that joining is very subtle. For me, And if you understand the ten commandments, the formalised teaching from the pulpit can quickly become arrogance from the pulpit.

    I have worked in the workplace for fifty years. I have done so with an open mind, and that in part because the first homosexual I worked with was a very intelligent man. I did not query the man about his sex life, but his conduct was that of a decent soul, and I respected him, and prayed for him.

    Looking directly at the google responses to the question… Santorum, we find terribly abusive responses. I don’t believe any of it is justified, and discussions in those terms are offensive to me. While it is a political debate, Christians who parse the assault on Santorum lay the bed for yet more abuse.

    I can judge with, or without my Christianity as can all, and will fight the assault on Santorum.

    please read ron paul’s statement of faith.
    If you are a born again christian is there really any other candidate. And then look at our economy and the plans to cut waste. Making america great again. America don’t give up we still have an awesome candidate. look at his voting record in congress. No wavering. Everyone in America has $45000 in national debt. Unacceptable. Get back to the original intent of the founding fathers!

    separation of church and state is what made our country great. our forefathers saw to that but you people always seem to overlook that little tidbit.
    ———————-
    Reply from Admin: Separation of church and state is fine but we still need to follow the laws that God created. What made our country great was that our country used to be a Christian nation that followed the laws of God. Our founding fathers didn’t forsee that in 200 years it was going to turn into Sodom and Gomorrah. The people of the United States have fallen a long way from what they were just 1 short generation ago. It only takes 1 generation to demoralize an entire country and destroy it. We have now witnessed that generation…

    Separation of church and state is an absolute necessity to maintaining the freedoms we all enjoy as Americans. Everyone in this great country is entitled to their own beliefs and ideas and are allowed to follow their own path. If that separation were to disappear and we became a country ruled by any religious ideals we would become a Theocracy. Countries that current run within the boundries of Theocracy are Yemen, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia, Sudan, Saudi Arabia, Mauritania, Oman and Iran. Based on our current relations with most of these countries, I’m not sure this would be the route to go to fix the issues in our country.
    ——————–
    Reply: noone here is promoting a joining of Church and State government by stating we should still follow the same Christian ideologies our Founding Fathers started the country with. It’s when we break away from the moral law that God gave us where countries quickly fall. We don’t have to look at middle eastern countries to see why Church and State must remain separate. We can look at what history shows us during the Roman Catholic inquisitions when popes had the power to do what they wanted. I am a Christian but would never want a Roman Catholic president that would bow and give his power to Rome. The Vatican is already a central power controlling the world – the Vatican does not follow what Jesus Christ Himself preached and taught. The Vatican denies most of what Christ taught. So be forewarned, if you are a real Christian and follower of Christ do your homework on Rome and the atrocities they have done throughout history when they grab power. When Rome grabs power again they will destroy everyone that doesn’t bow to them until Jesus Christ Himself returns and destroys the Antichrist and false religions.

    Crunch time is here conservatives need to get behind Newt Gingrich. I am surprised Santorum has not thrown already his weight behind Newt Gingrich with the understanding it is for Florida only. It is hopeless for Santorum in Florida. Santorum will only guarantee a Mitt Romney victory in Florida. Mr. Santorum you never have a chance against Mitt Romney’s money. If you let Newt Gingrich take on Mitt Romney on a equal footing in Florida you would stand a much BETTER chance against Newt Gingrich later. Mr. Santorum if you are not the nominee who would you rather pick the next 2 supreme court justices Mitt Romney or Newt Gingrich? Do you have a conscious Mr. Santorum or are you vain? No insult intended Mr. Santorum surely the logic is inescapable, cede Florida to Newt Gingrich in a temporary strategic alliance which would allow you and Newt Gingrich to live to fight another day !!!

    Rick….change the spelling of your name…and get it legal! Example: Saintorum…or Santoriam..Santatorum…etc. I endorse you as the one to lead our country to it’s celebratory state…Go for it!!!!!

    I am a veteran and feel I have the right to write this letter. Senator Santorum served in the U.S. Senate for sixteen years. He is now retired and receives 100% of his senator salary as a pension. He was a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, the group who decides military pay and pensions. As a senator, Rick Santorum voted to raise his pay and pension to over $14,000 per month while deciding to compensate veterans wounded and disabled in defense of this nation less than $3,000 per month. What heroic act did Senator Santorum do where he considers he deserves over $11,000 per month ($132,000 per year) more than soldiers wounded in battle? Senator Santorum obviously looks out for himself but doesn’t care about men and women who defend this nation.

    Michael Rowzee

    Former Staff Sergeant, U.S. Army

    Here is a story found at http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/01/18/rick-santorum-veterans-home_n_1212933.html
    The Armed Forces Retirement Home, which is run by the Department of Defense, bills itself as the “premier home for military retirees and veterans.” The facility sprawls across 272 acres high on a hill in northern Washington, DC, near the Petworth neighborhood. The nearly 600 veterans who now live there enjoy panoramic views of the city—the Washington monument and US Capitol to the south, the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception to the east. At its peak, more than 2,000 veterans of World Wars I and II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War lived at the Home.
    But with the rise of the smaller all-volunteer military, the Home began to run into serious financial problems. It was clear that one of its primary sources of revenue—a 50-cent deduction from the paychecks of active-duty servicemembers—wasn’t enough to keep the Home operating fully. In the 1990s, the Home scrambled to find ways to avoid insolvency trimming its staff by 24 percent and reducing its vet population by 800. Still, the money problems began to show, with its older historic facilities slipping into disrepair and decay. To grapple with its worsening shortfall, officials running the Home eyed a valuable, 49-acre piece of land worth $49 million as a potential financial lifeline.

    Under one scenario, by leasing the parcel of land and letting it be developed, the Home could pocket $105 million in income over 35 years for its trust fund, David Lacy, then-chairman of the Home’s board of directors, told Congress in 1999. Lacy stressed that the Home wanted to keep the property, and not offload it to a buyer. “Once land is sold,” he said, “it is lost forever as an asset.”

    Enter Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Penn.). At the behest of the Roman Catholic Church, and unbeknownst to the Home, Santorum slipped an amendment into the 1999 National Defense Authorization Act handcuffing how the home could cash in on those 49 acres. The amendment forced the Home to sell—and not lease—the land to its next-door neighbor, the Catholic University of America. Ultimately, the Catholic Church bought 46 acres of the tract for $22 million. The Home lost the land for good, and by its own estimates, pocketed $27 million less than the land’s value and $83 million less than what it could’ve made under the lease plan.

    it seems that rick santourum only cares about himself and the catholic church.i think what he did is treasonist, and we as a country better keep our eyes on him. i think that he acts as he does as a distraction so we can’t see that he is trying to ruin our country because he has a hidden agenda,and we as a country better find out what it is and who is he really working for,it’s not america
