    here’s something sad: one day Santorum is going to discover one of his children lying dead, having taken their own life. I’m not saying i want this to happen, because I don’t. I’m saying it’s likely going to happen. The man’s children are not all heterosexual.

    Uh…New York didn’t set the template, Massachusetts did. Looks like marriages, gay and straight, are still going strong there, and in every other state where gays can marry.

    I want him to produce one family whose lives have been damaged because of gay marriage. Guess what? There’s isn’t one.

    To paraphrase the late Pat Ast: Bring me something to wipe my Santorum!

  3. David in Houston says

    I completely agree with “Eyechart” above. Santorum needs to prove it. He needs to prove to everyone that when Massachusetts legalized same-sex marriage 7 years ago that it destroyed the American family there. Good luck with that, frothy homophobic dipshit.

    gay people have nothing to fear from santorum. his extremists views turn off most democrats, a majority of independents and many if not a majority of moderate republicans. in his last bid for reelection to the senate his democratic opponent defeated him by over 700,000 votes. what we don’t need are vulgar and immature anti-santorum stunts by people like dan savage that may cause some centrists to sympathize with the bigot santorum.

  5. says

    why can’t these people articulate, SPECIFICALLY, how two lgbt people who are already in a relationship and already have children together will suddenly “destroy the American Family” by legally marrying?

  6. RyanInSacto says

    You can nearly set your watch by this: A post about Dan Savage or Rick Santorum will inevitably receive a comment almost immediately by someone saying how awful it is that Savage re-defined Santorum and how terrible that is for centrists who will now not support equal rights for LGBTs blah blah blah blah.

    Look, John Leddy (and everyone else who does this), any “centrist” who will decide that I don’t deserve equal rights because of a stunt pulled by Dan Savage NEVER BELIEVED IN EQUAL RIGHTS IN THE FIRST PLACE. If they did, they would not change their minds about the issue so easily.

    Santorum is a virulent homophobe, pure and simple. He says things, repeatedly, that far outweigh the frothy mix stunt. Hell, he just did it again (see above) and here you are crying real tears for Santorum and bad-mouthing Dan Savage. Doesn’t that seem backwards to you?

    Enough already.

    Kerry whatshername from Media Matters can’t stop going on about Obama being the bad guy…so what the F is she doing about these guys?

    Anyone know? Links please?

    With friends like these…..who needs enemies.

  8. Harry says

    @Little Kiwi- You are correct. I remember seeing a picture of one of his sons and think that he was gay. The situation you discribe has happened manytimes before. Santorum is a bold face lier. The American Family is being destroyed by itself. The str8’s get divorces like they are going out of style. Rick couldn’t be elected dog catcher.

  9. MichaelD says

    Which states are making laws legalizing same-sex marriage and banning heterosexual marriage? The argument that marriage equality will destroy all marriage is cr*p started by NOM to scare the evangelicals. Perhaps NOM should be more concerned with the divorce rates, adultery, incest and child molestation; that might preserve heterosexual marriage more than a law preventing my partner and I from getting married.

    The letter of the law versus the spirit of the law

    The letter of the law versus the spirit of the law is an idiomatic antithesis. When one obeys the letter of the law but not the spirit, one is obeying the literal interpretation of the words (the “letter”) of the law, but not the intent of those who wrote the law. Conversely, when one obeys the spirit of the law but not the letter, one is doing what the authors of the law intended, though not adhering to the literal wording.

    “Law” originally referred to legislative statute, but in the idiom may refer to any kind of rule. Intentionally following the letter of the law but not the spirit may be accomplished through exploiting technicalities, loopholes, and ambiguous language. Following the letter of the law but not the spirit is also a tactic used by oppressive governments.

    Thanks for reminding me that I need to Google this asshat’s name every single day to make sure that “frothy mix” is the first thing anyone sees when they look it up for the rest of this loser’s life.

  12. Jim says

    Shut up, Frothy Mix. You will never be elected dog catcher. Take your old, dead, 1950s “morality” and shove it up your ass. Wait – that’s sodomy!

  13. Nyrkr says

    As a New Yorker, between this guy and Perry down in Texas I wonder if Canada would take us if we seceeded from the Union, we do have the border with them, at least by lake and we would bring alot to the table and then we to could be interested amused bystanders to their deranged rantings,rather than have to worry whether there is a chance, be it ever so slight, that either of these lunatics could gain some position of national power

  14. PLAINTOM says

    Santorum is correct States do not have the right to destroy American families, that is why the SCOTUS will eventual strike down all the state DOMA laws in accordance with the 14th Amendment.

  15. Abel says

    Will someone please tell me how marriage equality DESTROYS marriage? I truly don’t understand the reasoning. Yet this is what the bigots promise is going to happen. It makes no sense. The hatred being spewed by Santorum and others makes me so sad.

  16. X says

    States and ideas from people in power like him have been destroying families of gay people for decades!! What a hypocrite! How about he house homeless gay youth? How about he teach parents that being gay is fine and not to abuse them?! How about he promote marriage and stability for gay couples and their children?! How about he show some actual respect to his fellow Americans?! This guy is despicable!

  17. just_a_guy says

    Rick Santorum is holding onto slavery like owning slaves and the accompanying badge of superiority is his birthright and itself right.

    He is senseless. What he is fighting for (at best) is the right of a man to OWN a wife and children AS PROPERTY. But clearly to Rick Santorum, maintaining a CASTE system that denigrates gays as sub-human is ALSO INTEGRAL to his own self-esteem.

    Rick Santorum is an F’d UP individual. May a dog piss on his grave daily…

    Btw, in Rick Santorum’s worldview, I do not EXIST. Nowhere, not at all.

    Rick Santorum is nothing short of atrocious and repulsive. Calling him dirty sex-slime borders on a compliment about him.

    Take a seat, Mr. Santorum. Let REAL leaders lead.

  18. DeeperStill says

    Let him prove in a court of law that LGBT families are not part of “The American Family”.

    He will fail. That seems to be all he ever does anyway.

    What a loser…

  19. PSGuy92262 in PS says

    what we don’t need is anyone who makes outrageous statements and spews hatred such as santorum yet speaks with authority and currently holds a position of power. I do not want him speaking on my behalf.

  20. Chuck says

    So if New York (and Massachusetts and Vermont and Iowa and D.C.) have destroyed marriage and the American family, why is Santorum still married and living together with his wife and biological (I assume) children? Really, shouldn’t they all have spontaneously combusted by now?

  21. Jason 2 says

    Funny how gung-ho these “states’ rights” clowns are about states’ rights when it comes to trampling on minorities, the poor, the middle class, etc.

    But on the rare occasion where states’ rights empowers those groups, JESUS DISAPPROVES.

    What trash.

  22. robert in nyc says

    Excuse me, Santorum,it seems heterosexual adulterers of the Gingrich, Vitter, Giuliani, Edwards, Fossella, Spitzer, Ensign, and Sanford il, the list goes on, are doing a superb job destroying marriage and the family without the help of gay couples, thank you very much.

    This is religion rearing its ugly head again, the procreation mantra nonsense. Notice NOT ONE republican or tea party bagger scum are calling him out, not even slime-bag, Ron Paul, that phoney alledged marriage equality supporter who also supports DOMA.

  23. candideinnc says

    “The American Family,” Frothy Mix talks about is a fantasy in his overheated imagination. There is NO American Family. There are only American families. And who the hell is this little man to tell us we aren’t part of our families or that we aren’t every bit as entitled to families as everyone else?

  24. Dakotahgeo, Pastor/Chaplain says

    How the hell can one keep from laughing at this clown? Divorce has been destroying American Families for hundreds of years and that did’nt seem to upset the Fundies! The best thing we can do to Santorum and his ilk is to just ignore them, but, taking no chances, always, also, flush twice. Cheesch!

  25. Ron says

    If only we had a president like Mr. Santorum, a mam who still has courage to fight for morality and the common good.

    To those who say he wants to enforce his religion, while it is true his views are consist with his religion it is not true to say he wants to enforce Catholicism on everyone. The immorality and opposition to homosexuality is and has always been a law of nature. It is not natural because sex exists for the continuation of the human race hence why opposite genders can produce offspring. He isn’t pushing his religion. He is standing up for what is obvious truth (except for those blinded by hedonism).

    Many of you make a very poor show of yourselves by lluding to homosexuality in Mr. Santorums own family. You are being only hateful and have no basis to say such things.

    Also the fact of someone killing themselves, however entirely sad and painful it is, does not mean we should accept homosexuality any more than the tragic death of Miss Amy Winehouse proves we should accept her lifestyle or tje death of a man who kills himself because he did something wrong means we shouls accept his behavior. Auicide is tragic but in the discussion of the morality of homosexuality it offers no proof and offers no argument except to bring such strong emotion – aa opposed to reason seeking truth – into the discussion.

    Why does homosexuality destroy the family? Because it makes unnatural relations equal to natural which leads people away from the form of marriage they ought to seek. It means my children – and if you dare mess with my family you do it at your own risk – it means my children will be taught homosexuality is right when it is not, a form of brainwashing. Homosexuality attacks family values.

    I would vote a million times over for Mr. Santorum, not only because of this issue but because he has courage, he is seeking the common good for the country and not merely for himself, and because he is one of the few who has retained his sanity while surrounded by gross insanity.

    And by the way don’t try to tell those who are religious that they ought to not have an opinion and speak out. That’s more like Nazi Germany than America. And that – like most of the comments here – is bull.

  26. says

    @Ron: “I would vote a million times over for Mr. Santorum…”

    Fortunately, you only get one vote, just like the rest of us. And even more fortunately, it sounds like those of you who would vote for this man “a million times over” are in the minority and very, very soon Santorum will be a footnote to this presidential campaign. Which is the most fortunate thing of all.

  27. terryp says

    You @Ron make me sick, & people like you. You think you’re so moral because you don’t
    understand or want to understand GLBT’s. You think your better, don’t you? Your so
    called righteous talk is killing our youth.
    Its villainous people like you who give
    hetro’s a bad name. So eat sh*t & die already…

  28. anon says

    RS’s campaign is running on fumes. MB is getting all the social conservative attention (though her campaign is a mirage too). Running a social conservative campaign when the key issues are economic is farcical. Bigwigs in the Republican caucus are going to try to avoid another Sarah Palin fiasco too, because it hurt John McCain and they are facing an incumbent president (they start with a 5 point advantage).

  29. candideinnc says

    “Iluding” to Ron’s badly written little essay: sir, you are a bigoted dolt. First, your cyber threat about our messing with your family is simply laugh-out-loud funny. Go back to Red State or one of the other right wing nonsesne blogs to pander to that crowd. Don’t bring your blustering around here.

    Secondly, your entire rant can be summed up in one word: tautology. This logical fallacy is sometimes phrased as begging the question. Just because you say so doesn’t make much of an argument.

  30. NOT RON says

    @ RON
    You’re an absolutely brainwashed & hateful person. I “pray” that none of your kids end up gay, because you clearly have no freakin’ clue what family values or true morals are.
    Gay people can’t teach YOU to be gay anymore than you can teach gay people to be straight.
    This is AMERICA, LAND OF THE FREE.

    If you wish to impose your draconian religious beliefs and hate on others, you’re no better than the religious fanatics in the Middle East that try to impose their *quote un-quote* morals on the rest of society. You know what we call those people in America?…

    “Come mothers and fathers
    Throughout the land
    And don’t criticize
    What you can’t understand
    Your sons and your daughters
    Are beyond your command
    Your old road is
    Rapidly agin’
    Please get out of the new one
    If you can’t lend your hand
    For the times they are a-changin’.”

    “…and if you dare mess with my family you do it at your own risk”.

    Well Ron, if you mess with MY family, do so at YOUR own risk, you pathetic piece of self-righteous lowlife trash!
