Santorum Says He Would Outlaw Gay Marriage Because It Doesn't Reflect 'God's Will for Us': VIDEO


CNN's Piers Morgan asked Rick Santorum if there's any chance he'd ever soften his stance on same-sex marriage the way he hardened his stance on abortion, Think Progress reports.

Says Santorum: "No, you know, marriage is an institution that existed before governments existed. It’s something that reflects nature and reflects God and God’s will for us. And both from the standpoint of faith and reason it makes all the sense in the world. And it’s beneficial for society."

Santorum continues on to say he would make marriage for gays uniformly illegal across all 50 states.

  8. What can you expect from a papist-loving catholic, who thinks his church can do no harm? This is one boy whose mind the Jesuits did get their hands on.

  9. Too bad "Gay Marriage" was used. It's a counter productive term. It hurts equality. It's NOT about Gay it's about Marriage.

  10. He's positioning himself to be the tea party darling. Let's not dismiss him as a joke. The man is dangerous. He is narrow minded, but he's also shrewd. He knows there's no chance at the nomination for him - BUT, he could easily be the cynically picked VP nom. This whole VP business of picking someone to bring in wavering votes and then having someone like this being the "heartbeat away from the presidency" person is truly frightening.

  11. It doesn't matter what Frothy says, he'll be history soon at least until his next failed attempt at getting elected to anything.

    I don't think even Eye of Newt is stupid or foolish enough to choose Frothy for his VP pick if given the chance. Frothy has 16th century values which leave most Americans just shaking their heads at ole Ricky boy.

  12. Sorry, Santorum, but I am God's will. Deal with it.

  13. @Rob - I think you're on to something and I'll add my two cents. I think Santorum's continued campaign has more to do with his VP aspirations at this point and going forward. His motivation? I have a suspicion that Romney's campaign might be encouraging Santorum to stay in the race to (hopefully) divide the Tea Part/Evangelical vote with Gingrich.

  14. "Santorum says he would outlaw bacon because it doesn't reflect God's will for us"

    i mean, it's not actually that different eh?

    Posted by: Little Kiwi | Jan 23, 2012 1:14:16 PM

  15. @Rob and @Patrick are right. Santorum knows he cannot win the nomination, but even having him as a VP is scary as hell. I not only want him to drop out, I want him to drop dead. He has no problem imposing what he sees as God's will on the entire country. He doesn't "get" the meaning of freedom or equality. He's a racist, too.

  16. Someday there will be more muslims in congress than xians. Will he be so eager to base our nation's laws on religious scripture then? What about when the scientologists are in the majority? Will he happily be following Sci-Fi writer L. Ron Hubbard's dogma?

    Religion + Government = The Slippery-est of Slopes...

  17. Constant wearing of a sweater vests lowers your IQ 25 points.

  18. Point one. Yes, marriage has existed for a long long time - and often between a man and many women. Using the logic of former Senator Santorum, who was voted out of office by his swing state of Pennsylvania, polygamy should make a comeback.

    Secong point. I believe former Senator Santorum, who was voted out of office by his swing state of Pennsylvania, doesn't understand how the federal government works. The president can't outlaw something just because he doesn't like it. There is something called Congress. Not to mention the Supereme Court. Three separate, but co-equal branches, of government.

  19. TAKE NOTICE that should any party seek to deprive us of our just equal rights we take up arms against such a sea of trouble.

    AND FURTHER TAKE NOTICE that should any such party seek to resile from the guarantee of the Founding Fathers, that all men are created equal, we will take up arms against such usurpers and traitors.

    Frothy , take note.

  20. Aren't his backers the same ones who are trying to pass legislation banning Sharia law? Gotta love the American Taliban...

    And by "love," I mean abhor.

  21. He's been underestimated for years...look out for this zealot.

  22. Morgan is an idiot.

    OMG! Did Santorum just endorse civil unions????

    Morgan got a scoop and doesn't even realize it. Or maybe he didn't. We don't know BECAUSE MORGAN IS AN IDIOT.

    Posted by: BobN | Jan 23, 2012 1:51:04 PM

  23. The obvious response and follow-up question should be: "Okay, Great. Now what other laws would you change to reflect God's Will?"

    Ban Shellfish? Force women to cover their heads in public? Not allow businesses to operate on Sundays? Stone adulterers in the town square?

    Repugs love to use the slippy slope argument when talking about their opposition to marriage equality. WE need to start using it to OUR advantage!

  24. If we can get Newt and Santorum on the GOP ticket then it is a shoe-in for Obama. Both of these asshats have histories and religious bigotry that will destroy any chance the GOP might have to dislodge Obama.

  25. An expert? Don't think so.
