Rick Santorum: "I have gay friends"



All right friends and family, the time has come to address the real possibility of former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum that he may be the Republican candidate for president or vice-president.

You all know "nice guy" Rick don't you?  Senator "Man on Beast" when referring to gay marriage?

Here is an interview Rick gave on Fox News recently addressing his "gay problem".

Listen carefully Rick's responses.  You might have to replay them.  Below I've pulled out some of the quotes from the interview:

Megan began the interview calling Rick "compassionate and caring."  Are you kidding?

Rick states:  "I have friends who are gay and I accept them as they are..."

This falls under the same condescending remarks some whites used to make justifying their racial prejudice during the Civil Right era: "Some of my best friends are black....but..."

Rick states that he doesn't like anybody because of their sexual orientation:

"I don't dislike anybody because of their sexual orientation.  I respect their...that decision."  

Excuse me?  I don't remember making a decision to be gay.

Rick states that he is against same sex marriage because "it is destructive to the family."  

How so Rick?  Specifics please.

He also states:  "I want the ability to proclaim the Truth as God laid it out in the bible."

Again, excuse me?  Exactly where in the bible does it say "one man, one woman?"  

Rick goes on to say that traditional marriage between a man and a woman "is in the best interest of society."  

So, are we saying that a family consisting of two moms or a family consisting of two dads isn't in the best interest of society?  What should we do with those families Rick?  Disband them.  Put the two moms and two dads in jail.

Remember this folks, if Rick Santorum is elected president of vice president this country will have taken a
GIANT STEP BACKWARDS.  Here are just a few items that "compassionate and caring" Rick Santorum would put into place:


  • Repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell"
  • Making a woman's right to choose a criminal offense
  • End of Social Security
  • End of Medicare


That folks is just a few of the time items on "compassionate and caring" Rick Santorum's agenda.

Romney and Gingrich spout the same lines but they only do it because they know that is what will get them nominated.  They have to play to the right wing evangelical base.  Santorum is different.  He actually believes what he says.  Idealistic zealots like Santorum are the most dangerous kind of politician.

Don't be fooled by the Nice Guy Demeanor.  Nominating and electing Rick Santorum to any high office in our land is NOT IN THE BEST INTEREST OF SOCIETY.

Go home Rick and take care of your family.

By the way Rick, your concern about "what we're going to teach our children in schools."  Here is the answer to that concern of yours:  NO ONE CAN BE TAUGHT TO BE GAY.

Don't worry Rick.  And just remember, I don't hate you (well, maybe a little bit) but


I DON'T APPROVE OF YOU BECAUSE YOU ARE DESTRUCTIVE TO OUR SOCIETY.

    And, might I add, I get a little self-loathing-closeted-homosexual from Miss Ricky Santorum.
    Which is the saddest thing of all.

  2. You know Bob, I get the same feeling about Santorum. "He doth protest too much." I get that vibe from Ricky Boy. The worst homophobes are the closet homosexuals who hate themselves.

  3. EXACTLY, Ron. Reading articles like this gives me the feeling that my blood pressure is rocketing - which, with all the rest that's recently been happening is not too good for my health.
    How do you cope, Ron - especially when in your country all this crap seems to be relentlessly coming at you day after day?

  4. It's not easy Ray. Especially when I have good friends who are brainwashed by this homophobes hateful, tone-deaf message. I just sent one an e-mail before I read your comment. The scary thing is that a lot of people believe the crap that Santorum spews out.

  6. It's not only homosexuals that need to worry; anyone with a different religion that his own will suffer if he is president. He feels that he needs to bring God back to the government.

  7. Scott,

    Rock Santorum's World is very exclusionary. Only the straight families are allowed to live in his world. There is no diversity in Rick Santorum's World. People like Rick Santorum are the most dangerous because the really believe their crap and because they come off as a "nice guy" so how could they be wrong with their twisted view of the world? We're in a heap of trouble if Rick Santorum gets anywhere near the White House.
