Is Santorum A Crypto-Luddite?

Rick Santorum appeared on EWTN's “Women Of Grace” program to shill for a movie titled “The Christmas Candle” being distributed by the production company of which the former Senator and presidential candidate is CEO.

Santorum shared that the electric light central to the storyline symbolizes man's over-reliance on technology and lack of reliance on God.

But without the electric light, isn't it doubtful that the cinematic tools would have been developed whereby the artists working under Santorum would be able to share this narrative vision with a wider audience?

More importantly, weren't the candles he lionizes as a beatifically superior conveyance of illumination at one time the cutting edge of technology?

As such, would the holier thing to do have been to simply sit in the dark waiting for the sun to rise the next morning in compliance with God's timetable rather than man's?
