Rick Santorum Says Same-Sex Marriage Will Hurt Children: VIDEO


GOP Presidential hopeful Rick Santorum spoke out against same-sex marriage at an Iowa press conference yesterday, warning of the "devastating impact" it would have on children, families, and religious liberties.

He also rants that children will learn about transgender children and it will have a "profound" impact as they are forced to learn about all these issues.

  1. Senator "frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the by-product of anal sex" protests too much.

  2. Yes it will impact children, It will cause fewer of them to become hate filled bigots like Mr. Santorum. They will think of gay people without hatred and bigotry and question religious organizations that teach hate. This is not a bad thing.

  3. Oh, yes, Frothy: it's going to hurt children for them to learn that the world is different from the puerile stupidity that comes out of your ignorant mouth.

  4. Excuse me, Santorum, but if children are harmed by same-sex marriage...what about your married colleagues David Vitter and Newt Gingrich? Vitter committed a crime of moral turpitude with five prostitutes, two of whom he solicited from the floor of the house on his cell phone, gets a slap on the wrist and gets re-elected. Gingrich, a serial adulterer (just like Rudy Giuliani) committed adultery twice and married three times. All pro-family values and sanctity of marriage bigots. Not a word from Santorum's mouth or from the GOP. Where was NOM in all this, Bachmann, Pawlenty, Romney, Paul, Huntsman?

  5. For anyone over 60 years old, this is the same old same old about all issues of sanctioned bigotry, segregation, inter racial marriage, closed communities (towns didn't allow undesirables, different than the wasps, to live somewhere), and the like, just the same old story about a different state sanctioned form of discrimination. We need to remind everyone that this is not a new argument, just recycled bigotry.

  6. Why would anyone running for public office name themselves after fecal matter? Is he trying to show his contempt for his voters?

  7. And good, Catholic apparatchik Ricky went on to say, "If you don't want your children to be harmed, put them in the hands of priests."

  8. He's actually correct about the threat to religious freedom in that, as marriage equality spreads, it will become more difficult for churches to preach that being gay is wrong when the state says it's OK. This is a good thing and about time, because churches used to be able to preach that slavery was OK, blacks were inferior, torture is good, women must be subservient, etc. Many churches today preach that Muslims are the devil. Just because religious institutions are "free" to preach something doesn't mean they should. Too bad, Frothy Mix.

  9. Hey Rick, children aren't born knowing how to hate, it must be taught. I guess that's where you come in? After all, someone's gotta hate those homos right?

  10. Santorum is trying so very hard to be relevant. He is not succeeding, of course.

  11. Of course, he forgets that "kids" includes the gay ones. It's a big help for them, ijit.

  12. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. I guess what people like Rick Santorum fear is that, by redefining marriage, it opens the door to eventually have advertisements with all sorts of things people may not want their kids to see.

    And also people will eventually want to marry animals.

    I guess people like that see it as the beginning of the end of civilization as we know it.

    And they are right.
