Dan Savage Responds to Santorum: 'Rick Can Pray for Me. I'll Gay for Him.'

Earlier this week, Rick Santorum was asked what he would say to Dan Savage if he ever ran into him.

"I would tell him that I'm praying for him. He obviously has some serious issues. You look at someone like that who can say and do the things that he's doing and you just pray for him and hopefully he can find peace."

Shale_santorumSavage has responded in a statement to Mother Jones:

"Rick Santorum thinks that women who have been raped should be compelled—by force of law—to carry the babies of their rapists to term, he thinks birth control should be illegal, he wants to prosecute pornographers, etc., etc., basically the guy wants to be president so that he can micromanage the sex lives of all Americans...and I'm the one with issues? Because I made a dirty joke at his expense eight or nine years ago and it stuck? I'm the one with issues?

"Okaaaaaaaaaaaaaay.

"Rick can pray for me. I'll gay for him. And we can call it even."

  1. Although he's made some excellent arguments on our behalf, Savage is not the brightest bulb in the soup.
    The frothy mix stunt was disgusting, immature, and a huge strategic mistake. Of course Santorum would use it to demonize us. It's perfect for that.
    Savage should have removed the site eons ago, but he was egged on by the self destructive crowd, who is often the loudest voice in the community.

  2. Yep, them damn women. Decievers, the lot of them. Entrapping poor, defenseless men, after enticing men like the irresistible sirens they are to lose their inherent virtue and give in to their otherwise controllable libidos.

  3. Yeah, Dan Savage and Rick Santorum are about even! Both are pathetic attention whores who never fail to make fools of themselves in public.

  4. RS carries around the common conservative fallacy of a just and glorious past that needs to be reconstructed. This type of nostalgia is more than a tad delusional. The problem is that as a child he could not have understood what was really going on in society, and apparently he's never really bothered to mature or grow up enough to challenge his own beliefs.

  5. 1.mary is a troll. ignore "her" and she'll shrivel up and die.

    2.Rick Santorum is an idiot, whose "real" Google Problem is that his entire collection of factually-incorrect, stupid and bigoted statements are available online at the click of a button.

    3. hating dan savage and complaining about him on a gay website will not bring about LGBT Equality. Some of you hate Savage more than you care about about fighting for Equality. rethink your priorities.

    4. every intelligent poster on here knows how history is going to play out. Rick Santorum is going to be apologized for by future generations. his name will be mentioned with great shame - think Jesse Helms. Sure, some braindead idiots will continue to cling to his name and insist he was a Great Patriotic American (again, see - jesse helms...) but that's not going to last too long.

    his future grandchildren will not have the burden to live down "his frothy definition" - but will have the burden of his historic life of prejudice, bigotry, piety and hypocrisy on their backs.

    i repeat: Savage is not Santorum's problem, Santorum's overwhelming and unrepentant bigotry is his problem/

    and anyone who can't see that should seek sterilization.

  6. Well one, Santorum wants to be President & would have the potential to cause a great deal of harm while the other, does a sex column & exercises his free speech which you're always free to ignore. Hardly the same.

  9. I give Jason's trolling effort a 5/10.

    He put in just enough Republi-derpto get some bites, but lost points for lack of creativity.

  10. Rick Santorum won't win. It will be Mr. ASPCA Romney. Obama won't win because he's being sold as the man who ruined the American economy with his socialism to the short-term memory loss American public.

    We're all doomed.

    1) Romney and his magic underwear will take the presidency just as
    2) Israel bombs the crap out of Iran then
    3) We will get sucked into another war we can't afford this time nuclear and
    4) Lose all credibility with Europe and
    5) Get stuck in a either a real or Cold War with Russia.

    oh, and

    6) women's, gay, and minority rights are rolled back because its our fault that the economy sucks, our military is weakened, and we're a bunch of whiney babies.

  11. It's because of Dan Savage that I can't call myself "a Santorum girl." Someone might offer me a bar of soap and a washcloth.

  12. Dan and Rick should just kiss and make up
