Rick Santorum not so fundamentalist about tithing

Father Santorum adheres to fundamentalist Catholic dogma on issues like contraception but, when it comes to giving, he falls well short of the Biblical mandate to tithe 10 percent of your earnings.

 In no year was charitable giving more than 3 percent of his income, and he dipped below 2 percent in one year.

As Jennifer Rubin notes, “so much of Santorum’s career and a good deal of his writing focus on faith-based charities. So why did he personally give so little to the groups he lauds?”
