Santorum Blasts 9th Circuit, Says Prop 8 Ruling Pegs Religious Folk as Haters and Bigots: VIDEO


At a campaign stop in McKinney, Texas today, Rick Santorum condemned the 9th Circuit's ruling on Prop 8, claiming that the judges attacked the rational beliefs of religious people, Think Progress LGBT reports.

Said Santorum:

"The 9th Circuit decision yesterday said that marriage - if you believe in traditional marriage - the only reason that you can possibly believe that is because you are a bigot...Your belief of marriage between a man and a woman is purely irrational based on hatred and bigotry. That's what they just wrote. Four thousand years of human history. Irrational hatred and bigotry toward a group of people is the only reason you can be for marriage between a man and a woman."
