Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum believes that the United States may be only “one generation away” from Christian persecution, telling an interviewer that there was even the distant threat of Nazi-style persecution.

Santorum gave an interview to the Christian Post to discuss his new documentary “One Generation Away.” He said the title comes from a Ronald Reagan quote: “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.”

“If we don’t nip it here, then things get a lot worse,” Santorum said. “Persecution here in America is fairly mild. … It starts with a gradual erosion, you don’t usually go from 0 to 60 in a matter of a few days when it comes to religious persecution. It’s something that grows over time.”
