DALLAS (AP) — Former U.S. senator and GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum has been named CEO of a company that makes movies meant for a Christian audience.

Well, the last time I saw a movie that had anything to do with Santorum, I was not happy.

The phrase "a Christian audience" should most definitely be qualified to something like "a certain specific audience segment within the broader Christian community" because Santorum and his views do not represent by any stretch of the imagination the breadth of audience suggested by the broader Christian audience phrase. Christian doesn't automatically equate with right wing political idealogy so to suggest that the move is something the entire Christian audience would welcome is wrong.
