Rick Santorum Wants to Defund Contraception, Says He'll 'Die on the Hill' Fighting for 'Traditional' Marriage: VIDEO


In a recent interview, Rick Santorum said he would take away all federal funding for contraception if he were president, Think Progress reports:

"It’s not okay. It’s a license to do things in a sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be...[Sex] is supposed to be within marriage. It’s supposed to be for purposes that are yes, conjugal…but also procreative. That’s the perfect way that a sexual union should happen…This is special and it needs to be seen as special."

In the same interview, Santorum said he would "die on the hill" fighting for opposite sex marriage.

  3. Santorum is the owner of the largest margin of defeat by an incumbent in 30 years. His own constituents can't even stand him. Unless he moves to some rural southern county or Topeka to run for office he will only be fighting from the outside.

  6. Ricky needs to move to Oklahoma and next door to Sally Kern...they'd make wonderful neighbors huh? She could be Aunt Sally to his kids....

  7. What a whackadoo: "It’s a license to do things in a sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be...[Sex] is supposed to be within marriage."

    So much for small government.

    I suppose I'd be confused about my political positions too if my sexual positions involved squatting over a toilet to expel a certain recipe of butt stew...

    In all seriousness, though, I'd agree with the above sentiments - may the day come sooner rather than later - except I'm sure his family, at least, loves him. Sort of. Maybe he can simply fight on the hill until exhausts whatever shred of relevance he may have. Again, may the day come sooner rather than later.

  8. This guys spends way to much time talking about sex.

  9. Really. Who cares.

    Frothy Mix has zero chance of ever being president.

  10. Sounds like he is ready to lead all his Christian followers to a deadly war against gays. Violence is never a good thing for a "person" running for the highest office in the world to advocate. No class among any of the republican candidates. And Santorum should be charged with making statements that could anger and enrage the populace into riot. This sh!t is starting to get scary.

  11. "Santorum said he would "die on the hill" fighting for opposite sex marriage."

    Hope he does!

  12. Is that a rug?
    Is he Rick Rug Santorum?

  13. "Die on the hill"??? Um, is he referring to Calvary? Jesus-complex much?
    Another put-upon Christian martyr being oppressed by not being allowed to oppress others...

  14. "Die on the hill....."

    What grandiose delusions he has of his self importance......
    Can he get any more insane ?

    And "how things are supposed to be"......Yeah, in your little Alice world, Rick.

  15. Actually, it's the "special" procreative possibility in heterosexual sex that makes contraception both necessary and, ultimately, helpful in fulfilling that "specialness".

    Children should be planned and wanted. Not everyone has an apparently endless source of donor money to keep them employed year after blithering year...

  16. It's striking how much the political right is obsessed with sex. I don't think that much about it, and I look at hot guys everyday. Just give it a rest, as no one (including a large group of Jesus Lovers) really thinks sex has been and always was designed just to poop out babies. I get it, you want to stand for something (as Kit put it above)to be Jesus-complex like, but the more you moan about it, the more disinterested everyone becomes. It's pathetic as it is funny. He's a sad little man, hanging his philosophy on a dusty tome that was outdated 2,000 years ago.

  17. I'll make sure I use his skull to step on on the way to the altar after he's dead. I always thought it would be beautiful to get married on a hill at sunset.

  18. So, who is it again that is trying to redefine marriage? Gay people, or the jerks like Little Ricky who think that you must be forced to bear babies you don't want.

  19. Someone get Frothy to a hill. Quickly!

  20. I'd like to say to this bible thumping nerd stay the hell out of people's personal business like sex or faith. he is a backwards man that cant see whats in front of him as he walks forward. he should be more concern on health, education and creating jobs. i predict this guy won't win and i hope no i pray or wish on star he doesn't.

  21. Stupid and delusional.

  22. Is there anything about sex this guy doesn't have a hangup about? Get a life and stay out of other peoples bedrooms.

    Posted by: Nicholas | Oct 19, 2011 5:23:22 PM

  23. He seems to be basically admitting to all kinds of sexual deviation in his personal life. Someone that protests SO much HAS to be hiding some very dark things. As everyone else has said, no sane person obsesses THIS much about sex!! And we are mostly horny men!

    Posted by: Tim | Oct 19, 2011 5:27:15 PM

  24. According to scripture, sex is strictly for the purpose of procreation and MUST not be participated in as lustful desire as that is the devil working. The pleasure from sex is a temptation and must not be given into. If you are to have two kids, then screw only until the each child is conceived. Then enjoy your celibate life. Oh, by the way, masturbation is also a sin as pleasure, again, is the temptation. Let's see the straight and self-righteous folks give up sex in the name of God. Never happen as pleasure is OK as long as it is between opposite sex partners. These people sicken me.

  25. Ricks obsession with gay sex is pathological
