Rick Santorum: Mutually Consenting Adults Don’t Have Right to Privacy

Expect more of this…

Rick Santorum’s monster win yesterday means that he will be the next Republican candidate to get skewered by the corrupt media. No doubt his comments from the 2003 campaign will be brought back into the conversation. So before your read this somewhere else I thought I would post this report and let you decide for yourself.
This comes from Wikipedia:

The Santorum controversy arose over Republican former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum’s statements about homosexuality and the right to privacy. In an interview with the Associated Press (AP) taped on April 7, 2003, and published April 20, 2003, Santorum stated that he believed mutually consenting adults do not have a constitutional right to privacy with respect to sexual acts. Santorum described the ability to regulate consensual homosexual acts as comparable to the states’ ability to regulate other consensual and non-consensual sexual behavior, such as adultery, polygamy, child molestation, incest, sodomy, and bestiality, whose decriminalization he believed would threaten society and the family, as they are not monogamous and heterosexual.

Some commentators condemned his statements, while some conservatives came to his defense. The controversy carried over into Santorum’s presidential campaign in 2011.

This is what made Rick Santorum a target on the left. . I will post an update if I get more information. In the meantime, you can discuss your reaction below.

UPDATE: Thank you, Aaron Z., for adding the following in your comment…

Along with the 2003 interview, Santorum gave another interview in 2006 that will haunt him in a general election:

“This whole idea of personal autonomy, well I don’t think most conservatives hold that point of view. Some do. They have this idea that people should be left alone … [that] government should keep our taxes down and keep our regulations low, that we shouldn’t get involved in the bedroom, we shouldn’t get involved in cultural issues. … Well, that is not how traditional conservatives view the world and I think most conservatives understand that individuals can’t go it alone.”

    Actually, along with the baggage of being called religiously intolerant, Santorum is also what can be termed a “pro-life statist.” He believes strongly in a large, activist government that has the power to decide what’s best for you. He’s supported most of the big-spending government projects that have left us with a $15 trillion national debt.

    When the general public gets pounded over the head by millions of negative ads saying Santorum wants government in your bedroom, and when conservatives become aware of the fact that his voting record is for huge earmarks and massive deficit spending, do you really think he can win against Obama?

  • Thomas

    @#6 Why are more GOP folks like you? The common chant from the right is anti-government EXCEPT when it comes to your body and sex. Sen. Santorum is a hypocrite, bigot and has no business trying to be the POTUS. He is far too bible thumping to lead a secular nation.

  • FU#K OBAMA

    Rick is right….

  • Multitude

    Santorum does have serious problems per his intolerance for others not like him. It must be nice to have been born the right kind of Sneech with the proper star, because to not have that star sure leads to a lot of misery.

    He is quite hated by the college generation, especially its libertarian fiscal conservatives, and I share much of their skepticism. It is quite difficult to understand people who stand up for the freedom from the government to worship the way they choose, to run their business the way they choose, to educate their children the way they choose, but to then see those same liberty-minded individuals turn into fascists who demand that same government intervene in someone elses family and business to impose their sexual norms upon them.

    Homosexuality is common in nature. That makes it natural, even if some of us (myself included) cannot stand the thought of engaging in it. Nature varies profoundly for a variety of reasons. If you want others to respect your religious, social or economic beliefs, the best thing you can do is extend the same respect and leave them alone for theirs.

    Let’s see if Santorum deals with his track record of being a homophobe, a sexist with a track record for having problems treating women as equals, and sets aside his proclivity for shoving his reactionary social views upon other people like a proper becoming-totalitarian.

  • MN Jim

    I agree with Stuart. This glitter nonsense could blind someone, and who knows when it will be a bag of urine, acid, scorpians, etc. Our news crew interviewed the guy who glitter-bombed at least 4 politicians. He was grinning proudly at his fame. He gets hauled out and immediately released to do it again.

    Doesn’t matter he’s a horror on the border. It’s the single most dangerous issue to the country and none of the candidates will do a thing about immigration. In fact it is the single most dangerous issue that faces the world. Rick doesn’t even believe in the border or any type of enforcement because the people coming over are poor people in need.

    Once you let in enough people in who won’t assimilate the nation will be destroyed. This was also a prediction of the founding fathers and they are pretty much right about everything. For this reason they never had any faith in other revolutions to establish democracies like the US. Read the “Idea of America” a series of lectures on what was thought at the time of the founding of our country.

  • Conservative Chemist

    While I agree with Mr. Santorum that any relations outside a “one-man-one-woman-together-for-live” marriage is morally wrong, I don’t think the government has any business telling consenting adults what they can and cannot do with their own bodies. It’s my belief that the government should protect its citizens from other people, but it has no business protecting citizens from themselves.

  • Multitude

    Santorum’s sexist problems:

    Senior Santorum staffer Jamie Johnson says women unfit to be president, would harm children if they saw it. An aberration and perversity of God’s will and the Bible.

    http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2012/01/18/santorum-staffer-questions-whether-god-wants-women-presidents/

    News stories indicate that Johnson is still staffed, is unapologetic, and that Santorum stands by his staffer’s words and actions.

  • FU#K OBAMA

    Remember this those who want a forced acceptance of homosexual behavior: In every state that homosexual marriage has been up for a popular vote (even in California) it has been defeated. Yes this is a issue, but America will not let it be a issue. So break a nail because forced acceptance of a perversion will , and is, already backfiring on the homosexual community.

  • Ripped

    Rick Santorum is a big government statist who is a religious zealot whose brain is a raging electrical storm of divine visions and paranoid delusions.

    Neocon Rick Santorum, a real lunatic who believes that birth-control is a detriment to an overpopulated world, and that nuking any country which even questions the United States’ failed policies abroad is the best idea since sliced-bread.

    Santorum represents an archetypical cliche of the Republican Party and hopefully the American people recognize that his bigotry, homophobia and theocratic beliefs do not best represent their interests.

    He’s just another right wing religious zealot who is unelectable.

    The only reason he is getting any attention is because the republican’s have run out of Anti-Romney candidates and they are to stupid to support Ron Paul the only true conservative in the race.

  • Nelle

    I’ve heard this idea that homosexuality occurs in nature frequently, but where is the evidence? All I’ve ever seen is animals mounting other animals of the same sex when the opposite sex isn’t an option. No penetration, ever. And the mountee usually resists. There are same sex friendships among animals, but not nesting or den-building same-sex pairs. So when and where does real homosexuality occur in the animal kingdom? Somehow I think if it had ever been captured on video, we’d all have seen it a thousand times. So I think it happens approximately never.

    I to don’t want my Presidential candidate to be blinded by some nut job kid who is acting on behalf of some criminal element that the cops are being negligent in not arresting everyone they find. I think that maybe have him taken our back and work him over with night sticks and steel toed boots would keep him from coming back next. But wouldn’t stop someone else, but they would know that if they are inside and are taken, the same treatment will be performed on them to. I hate glitter! My wife has it all over these Christmas decorations and when they are put on the tree and taken down and put up it takes me months to get the glitter out of the house. And the reason why is we track it everywhere walking around the house.

    Somehow the Secret Service needs to create a task force to concentrate on the Occupier’s intentions for us during this year of electing a new President. They are criminal and dangerous. I agree with others here and that is what is to stop them from sneaking in a weapon and kill one of our candidates or some other conservative. They need to be stopped and with extreme force. We must send out the strongest signal to these Communists that we will not tolerate this sort of civil disobedience.

    I’m just waiting to see when the cops are going to bring out all those supposed “nonlethal” weapons like the microwave guns that burn people’s insides, and sound cannons that explode people’s insides. I’ve seen them on TV, I heard they were tested in Iraq, and I know that the cops have them. They are supposed to be used for dispersing “mobs”. Well, aren’t the OWS mobs?

    Incest and cannibalism is common in nature, too. According to your logic, we should say that these behaviors are “natural”. Human nature is flawed. I have great empathy for those afflicted with same-sex attraction. Someone very dear to me died of AIDS.

    Nelle: Some time ago, my aunt had a pair of siamese cats (brothers actually) and they engaged in “activities” with each other periodically. I asked our family vet about this behavior and was told it’s not abnormal nor is it atypical. Since then, we’ve had experience with cows pastured on some of our property and you’ll find that similar sexual activity occurs there, not just between bulls and younger male steers, but female cows on other females. This is all anecdotal but I’d suggest you’re not looking if you’re not finding support for this. Bonobo monkeys are also well researched. I’m not a search engine; go use one. Otherwise, admit to yourself that you’re not interested in facts challenging your religious views.

    MaryW: I don’t understand why you’re making fun of Christians for their practice of ritualistic cannibalism and find your attack to be mean spirited. Just because we eat our savior doesn’t mean what you make of it as a deviant practice. But to a broader issue, your comment is nonsensical in that it neglects the point many of us are making that we don’t need a government controlling people who are engaged in consensual practices that don’t bother others. I feel for your friend as you do great dishonor to their memory by blaming them for their AIDS.

    and militant #23: Who’s a troll here? Santorum won’t win the general if he doesn’t deal with his reactionary social imperialism (hard to call it “conservatism” since he likes to push his views onto others).

    There are many people in our party who are fiscally conservative and socially tolerant, and also have a real-world foreign policy view. This rules out Ron Paul since he’s a dangerous fool on foreign policy. It rules out Romney because he’s not a fiscal conservative, and Newt has serious credibility problems here too.

    If Santorum can set aside his track record of thinking women are inferior, gays are deviant sinners, blacks are lazy, and establish a contract to represent us through a much smaller Federal government, then some of us who are very skeptical about his social imperialism might be able to get behind him.

    Without us, you have Obama. And no, you don’t get to use the Romney RINO line of “with Santorum in the general, you have no choice.” Don’t tempt us remind you of the McCain lesson.

    How about we keep this simple and back a candidate that just gets the Federal Government out of running individual peoples lives? Can we agree on that?

  • Pragmatic

    Why doesn’t someone ask the Mormon leadership about women (and blacks) in ALL positions of the Mormon religion (and society)? Don’t ask Romney because he would lie/say what he thought most people would want to hear).

    Rick Santorum’s Google Problem = Google’s Rick Santorum Problem

    While I argued at the time that Santorum’s views on homosexuality weren’t all that unusual, I called his comments “very stupid” and noted that “consensual adult sodomy is different from most of the acts on the list, given that most of the others are generally done without consent of effected third parties.” Given that Santorum hasn’t walked these statements back, he deserves to live with them.

    On the other hand: Surely, some made-up definition concocted by a niche columnist of questionable character is not high among the most relevant pages on the Internet about Rick Santorum.

    This is yet another instance of the failure of search engines. (In fairness to Google, Bing actually makes the “Google bomb” reference the first result and Yahoo the second, so its competitors aren’t doing any better.)

    The Rick Santorum Wikipedia page should in fact be ranked among the top results. Ditto, Rick Santorum & America’s Foundation, which is hosted at ricksantorum.com. I’m not sure they’re the two most relevant results, frankly, but Wikipedia, IMDB, and a self-referencing domain will almost always be atop any person’s rankings.

    But, for example, if the bestiality comments Santorum made seven years ago are really among the most significant facts about him — and I believe they are — shouldn’t the results include major media reports from that time?

    And why is a January 2011 HuffPo blog post ranked so high? And also a reprint of the same blog post by ABC News?!

    Or some site called “Santorum Exposed”?

    Why are there blog posts about this story, dating back only 14 minutes?! And, if the suddenly viral story deserves to be among the very top results on Google, why not Mother Jones’ more thorough treatment of it from last fall?

    Like it or not, Google is where the average person is going to learn about candidates, causes, and issues. But too much of what shows up on the first page or two of the results — all that almost anybody will ever read — is garbage. Certainly, little of it is among the most useful information about Rick Santorum — or anybody or anything else.

    and militant #25: nice bait. You almost had me believing you were some Klan type stupid enough to confuse gender identity with behavior. How many sexually active heterosexuals are spreading herpes, gonorrhea, even AIDS while gay couples in monogamous relationships have no such issues? If AIDS had developed its aggressive vector through straight sex, you’d have to claim that god hated straights.

    High risk behavior is stupid for anyone, regardless of how they believe they are oriented sexually, whatever their skin color is, what sexual organs they were born with, etc. Do you know how many women have a right to use your line to claim men are stupid? I’d love to see the statistics on dumb-assed teen boys vs. girls who go 95 mph on motorcycles drunk without helmets. I’m pretty sure the dictionary definition of “teen male” says something about high risk.

    But why do your kind insist on a tyrannical Federal government that attempts to micromanage that? Do you have a problem with nature, letting the stupid kill themselves off? Why do you want to protect stupid people?

    The Perry people didn’t listen to concerns from the fiscal conservative/socially tolerant and he got flushed away. Santorum seems like our last choice for a non-insider. I hope he can separate from his reputation as a bigot and intolerant. Perhaps the reputation isn’t deserved.

    I’m keeping an open mind; I just wish other so-called conservatives did so with respect to other people different from them as well. Life’s too short to be a repugnant, loathing, shallow, one-dimensional hater of difference and uniqueness.

    The Occupy Wall Street mobs and criminals are a Communist backed front group. The FBI, CIA, Secret Service, and the states State Police need to be investigating these groups and invade them with plants to find out what they are doing. They are so loosely organized, and proud of who they are and ematurely brag about what they do in the destruction they cause that it shouldn’t be to hard to find out what they plan on doing. It’s not like we’re dealing with some Muslim terror cell, or paramilitary White Supremecy group, or something else. It’s a bunch of ignorant kids who are out on the street just to cause trouble. Look at this punk. His idea of protest is to throw glitter at someone. Yeah, it’s dangerous that’s why I hate it because it can get in your eyes and mouth and cause you problems. Besides it’s hard to get the stuff out of your hair and off your clothes.

    I think Santorum would look good on stage with the right light on him, he would look celestrial. But other than that it’s emature to do something like that, but should be investigated to find out what the OWS is planning for the CPAC convention.

    I heard last night on the radio that in secret meetings there will be some individual who are planning on doing some real physical damage to the candidates. What they are saying is, if they are going to go to jail, “They are going to make it worth it.” That means only one thing to me and that is somebody is going to be hurt bad.

But I also tell my kids that the government doesn’t have the right to tell adult individuals what to do, as long as those adults aren’t violating anyones individual liberty or private property.

  • WillofLa

    Santorum’s remarks about homosexuals is exactly in line with Christian teachings. We don’t hate the person, we hate the evil within them. Even though man has a “free will”, and makes his own decisions, Satan does temp men’s souls, minds, and bodies with painted women, or men whichever your preference, and God’s word does say that we are to shun them and cast out those who refuse to repent. And after they have been out in the wilderness long enough they are supposed to have had enough of being on their own and want back into the “fold” again, come to our door and ask for forgiveness, repent and we will let them back in.

    Santorum’s attitude is not bigotry, nor anything else like that. He is a Christian who is not afraid of speaking the truth. You can throw glitter at him all day and that is not going to change the way he believes. I grew up with having the state having the right to regulate sex acts of people caught in their homes doing something they ought not to be doing, like queers corn holing each other. That is sodomy and is against the law. Why? Because we the people have given the states the authority to be able to go into the house of a couple of guys who we’ve found out are homosexuals and arrest them. I grew up in a moral America. I’m the kind of person Obama wants to kill off because I hold in my memory how and what a moral America used to look like, and could tell someone how it should be. See, Obama and the Socialists who hate people like Santorum because he represents getting America back to being the moral nation it once was.

    I know that to some of you, having police having the right to arrest a couple of guys in the privacy of their home for what kind of sex homos have with each other, seems like bigotry to you. It’s because you can’t imagine a America like that. It’s because liberals have forcefully taken rights away from the rest of us who are moral, and have given them to homosexuals so America can no longer keep itself moral and teach it’s young that some acts are wrong and sinful so our young can learn right from wrong.

    If nothing is wrong then how can a person ever learn what is right. If everything and everybody is right then how can our young ever learn what is wrong. Liberalism has brain washed you to the point where you now think that taking the right of privacy away from homosexuals is a very bad thing to do, and my thinking something like that is right makes me a “bigot”. If you look the word up in the dictionary you will see that the word “bigot” is wrong to apply to this situation. America society is based on Christian morals and societal rules. The way our society used to be set up for Christian people and their beliefs, not the beliefs of anyone whose beliefs were contrary to what Christianity teaches. That is what separated America from all the other countries.

    You may think that the way America was, was wrong, but it wasn’t. What we offered to homosexuals was the opportunity to get themselves well pychologically, since before 1963 homosexuality was on the list of human mental illnesses used to describe them in court cases before the Supreme Court who held that list. Homosexuality was against the law and those people were arrested if they were caught being themselves in public, like, hugging and kissing in public, and arrested in their homes. We want everyone to have the opportunity to be a whole person and being in the mental condition of a homosexual was being sick. So we wanted those people to be well, not sick. That is compassion towards someone who didn’t realize just how sick they had let themselves get, and that is what is important in order to have a well and moral society.

    This is the part of America liberals hated the most. Since, liberals have been embarked on this crusade to “redefine” what “morality” was so more sick people could walk around and be able to infect anyone they choose by being teachers, clergymen/women, day care workers, and in our military. These are all the places where homosexuals should not be allowed to be.

    And this is what it means to be a Christian. And don’t give me any liberal moral equivilancy and tell me how God loves us ALL equally. No, that’s not the point. God wants us to obey His law, and one of them is NOT being a homo. Then He can look upon you with pride. When your son is bad and you are disappointed in him, do you not still love him? But you do not accept his behavior and you reject him until he starts behaving. That’s what God loves us all just like we are means. He does not want homosexuals to be sick, He wants them to be well and that means they are not homosexuals anymore and understand that they were sick while they were homosexuals and living in the dark. He wants us all to be able to stand in His light!!

    And a day of light it will be when Rich Santorum wins the Presidency and hopefully will put Obama in jail for treason!! Not because he’s Black, but because he’s a Marxist!! And I don’t want my country to go to hell because we were to liberal to see how sick we had become?

    ‘Following Glenn Beck’s recent shark-jumping.

    Unless this post is retracted, and an apology offered forthwith, I see no reason to continue having The Blaze on my blogroll, or to ever visit the site, again. Glenn Beck and pals are deploying the left’s most despicable Alinsky tactics against fellow conservatives, now, and it defies all rational explanation.

    Big Journalism’s John Nolte wonders what the heck is going on over there?

    Beck’s fall from grace started when his site, The Blaze, falsely attacked James O’Keefe — to the delight of the very people who used to attack Beck. Then Beck, of all things, betrayed the Tea Party in the worst way any conservative could. I thought he’d hit bottom with that. After all, how much lower can you go than selling out to the mainstream media?

    Well, yesterday, what I thought had been a rhetorical question was answered when The Blaze went full Andrew Sullivan, full Politico, full Wonkette, and and attacked Sarah Palin over a situation involving her family.

    The Governor’s sin? Composing what amounts to a touching article about her family’s life with Trig – Todd and Sarah Palin’s youngest son with Down Syndrome.’…

    Ah yes conservatives should disarm immediately. All the world loves a disarmed America. If you would just kiss our troops and open your arms to embrace our internal security troops all would be peaceful and a land of unicorns and plenty. Just give up immediately. Do not waste your money on defense, spend it on magic bean energy plans and more foodstamps for the worthy and deserving who cannot work because of the bias and prejudice of jews, wall street capitalists and evil white men.

    Support abortion, image how many babies you could kill if you didn’t build an aircraft carrier. Imagine how many Volts you could manufacture if you didn’t have troops threatening the beloved and peaceful motherland Rus.

    Yes More Government we cheer your efforts as we cheered Chamberlain and Jimmy Carter. We hail Obama. And we award you the Order of Putin, third class.

    Ok, then let’s keep Obama! forget the elections let’s have a coronation. Everyone wants to rip a GOP candidate and pig pile on them and say nothing about the creep.
    so if ya think Santorum is bad, then we go with the Obamster. If Sharia comes in as an alternative justice system, all the gays that hav eregistered with the govt,for marriage will be contacted and invited to the crane for hanging. and there will be no gay pride parades folks.
    We got to elect someone who is pricopled and a choice from Obama. So you don’t like one thing. With Obama thereare 25 things not to like at least.
    The talkshow hosts where I live also pig-pile on GOP cnadiates and ridicule and laugh, but in an incredible disconnect they have kids and do not like what he does.

    What an excellent post. Everyone progressive realizes the real spreader of AIDS are heterosexuals. We see them dropping like flies. In the people’s paradise we have no cases of queers spreading AIDS. In our socialist progressive land all people are free to conduct themselves as they wish right up until the people’s internal; security police knock on your door at midnight. And then you are kelbasaba.

    Thank you doing your best to estab;lish our beloved culture in the decadent West. The politburo wishes it has more allies working to spread homosexuality, animalism, profgressivism, and other forward thinking cultures. Anything but the reactionary Christian morality that has coirrupted the West to the core and forces people to engage in endless wars against peaceful, loving people the world over.

    I propose that any and all Republican candidates carry with them within easy reach a bottle of glitter. Should they ever be “glitter bombed”, they should promptly pull out said bottle of glitter and throw it in the attacker’s face. Ideally, this would happen quickly… but if the attacker has to be restrained first, I see no problem with throwing glitter in the attacker’s face while he/she is under restraint. The attacker has as little ability to defend him-/herself as the original victim did.

    Marriage is between a man and a woman. It has been for thousands of years. If gays want to be together then call it something else. A gay couple is not the same as a traditional man and woman couple. A man and woman can produce a child while a gay couple cannot. That is the difference. So call it something else because it is different and never could be the same. Why change a definition that has been with us for thousands of years? Rick has made an excellent argument. If it is fair to let a gay couple marry than what about those that want several husbands or wives. It is a great argument.

    Don’t believe any of the Santorum stories (like those cited in comments) until you have sourced them yourself from sites that have no ax to grind. Get the truth and then you can make up your own mind, but there will be misquotes and attacks from everywhere now. Remember, this is the candidate that seemed to worry Soros the most. There is a reason for that.

  • Georga

    To each, their own. You are gay, I am straight. I am Christian, you are atheist. I am conservative, you are liberal. I am pro life, you are pro abortion. There will never be agreement except that these are the differences splitting us apart. Not, not one of us wants to be forced, mandated, to bow to the other’s dogmas.
    When the public school removed prayer but then begins to teach my child about the joys of homosexuality that is a perversion of justice, and if you can’t see that, there’s nothing left to do but fight.
    The dogma at this time in our history is coming from the left. The Crusades began when Muslims invaded Jerusalem and the Church took arms….not to proselytize but to stop the militant Muslims. If there can’t be a allowance of our rights in our Constituion by vote and law, we are doomed to fight.
    I don’t care if gays marry. I do care that they want to force those who don’t condone it and to comply to any other requests they have…that their freedoms take mine away? This is wrong.

  • Multitude

    Interesting how the AIDS statistics are showing its becoming a heterosexual disease. Of course, a heterosexual drug user disease, but then again, Santorum’s religous zealots wouldn’t want to discuss this since they’re not as much fun to hate. Hell, half the druggies are numb when you burn them. At least the gays emit a high pitched squeal.

    By the likes of the Christian social-reactionary progressives backing Santorum, and the Church of Scientific Reason Marxist-reactionary progressives backing Obama, we’re in for some fun times, book and witch burnings, and other progressive entertainment fun ahead. Hey haters, when is Spit on a Queer day this year? I know…May 10th!

    “One of the things that I will talk about that no president has talked about before is I think the dangers of contraception in this country, the sexual liberty idea and many in the Christian faith have said, you know contraception is OK. It’s not OK because it’s a license to do things in a sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be.”

    That’s also what he said. Spoken like a true fascist. Contraceptives bad because they allow you to do things Rick Santorum does not approve.

    http://videocafe.crooksandliars.com/david/santorum-ill-die-stop-same-sex-marriages His own words, comes with video. Does he have any logic reason against same sex marriages? Nope, cause there are none. He’s as deep into ideology as Obama. That’s all there is. Ideology.

    http://videocafe.crooksandliars.com/heather/rick-santorum-states-should-have-right-out States should have the right to outlaw contraception and if the people don’t like it, vote out the legislation (as if that would ever happen, given that he and his ilk are nothing but the mafia, they do anything to keep their comfy chairs.)

    To hell with him. He’s another member of the Beltway Mafia trying to regulate your lives. Santorum, Gingrich, Romney, Obama, all Beltway Mafia. As for Ron Paul, he’s an anti-semitic lunatic.

    A gay couple is not the same as a traditional man and woman couple. A man and woman can produce a child while a gay couple cannot. That is the difference. So call it something else because it is different and never could be the same.

    What about leaving the issue of marriage up to the churches, and the government stop handing out preferences/breaks to people who are “married”? Treat ’em all the same.

  • Sidney Allen Johnson

    Obamacare will criminalize homosexuality again anyway. The behavior is too risky and its consequences too medically expensive. You will be treated by socialized medicine just like the smokers. Your behavior will be regulated by the government. You already voted for it! So you homosexuals better start voting republican to get it repealed.

    It is to Santorum’s advantage to be attacked by gays. Our country faces much much bigger problems . Rick shows the unfortunate reality that the homosupremacy agenda is all some people care about. We could suffer a nuclear terrorist strike in this country tomorrow and the Rachel Maddows of this world would crawl out of their fall out shelter demanding action on GAY MARRIAGE.

  • Does Sanyorum get federal protection? No, but Rmoney does..

    ‘Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign has been informed that it will start receiving Secret Service protection this week, two campaign sources and a senior Republican tell ABC News.

    Secret Service protection is being given to the campaign not because of a specific threat but because of the increase in crowd sizes as the primary season has progressed over the past few weeks, according to the sources, who refused to be identified because they don’t have authority to comment on such matters publicly.

    According to a federal law enforcement officials Romney’s campaign, which has long traveled with private security of its own, did request Secret Service protection. However sources tell ABC that the campaign did not make the request, but was approached about the additional security steps in the weeks following the New Hampshire primary.

    Romney will become the only current Republican candidate with Secret Service protection.’

    He says that is not traditional conservatism (with respect to radical individualism).
    Guess what? He’s right.
    The earlier generations did not, and would not, condone the modern view of so-called libertarian thinking (which is simply a dressed-up term for radical individualism, a product of the progressive era).
    Question to all those offended by a traditional view of marriage: Name a few areas of life (not those affected by scientific advancement) that make us better off now as opposed to one or two generations ago.
    Perhaps we should give great pause to revolutionary social or philosophical changes, as the road that began for us (overtly) in the 1960’s is leading to collapse.

    By the way, I am still looking, but have had no luck, finding the bill that Rick co-sponsored or supported that called for stoning homosexuals. I keep hearing the analogy, so I’m sure he must have at some point, right?

    Multitude brays AIDS is a hetersoxual disease. Really? Strange everything I have seen after 20 years indicates it is a disease of queers and drug addicts. I heard this years ago as the queer community strove to get funding for AIDS research and care. And it worked. Today we see its spread again due to the same venues, queers and drug addicts.

    Just another benefit of the queer abd free drugs agenda.

    Santorum’s willingness to stand up to the homosexuals is refreshing. The overreach by the Ninth Circus in California basically forbids people from even amending their own Constitution if it does not meet the approval of the radical homosexual lobby.

    Santorum saw this comiing. We are on a slippery slope. If there is a right to privacy protecting homosexuality then why not one protecting beastiality? Rather than attempt to deal with that issue constructively, Santorum is attacked as a bigot for raising it. It’s so much easier to deal with dissent that way.

    There is a big difference between tolerance for homosexuality and its glorification. Between teaching kids not to beat others up and rubbing their nose in “gay pride”. While this is not the most important issue in this campaign, its one that I’m very glad Santorum has the courage to address, and another good reason to give Rick our support.

  • Molon Labe

    Interesting to see the 9th Circuit sees queer behavior as a Constitutional right. It must be between the right to abortion and the right to burn the flag. Strane for over a century after the Constitution was published homosexuality was punished severely. Just goes to show you that people too stupid to clean toilets are qualified to be judges.

    Massachusetts Law (still on the books) calls sodomy the “abominable and detestable crime against nature” for a reason. Note that sodomy with another person is considered equivalent in punishment to bestiality:
    See http://www.lawlib.state.ma.us/subject/about/sex.html#sodomy
    MGL c.272, s. 34. Crime against nature.
    Whoever commits the abominable and detestable crime against nature, either with mankind or with a beast, shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison for not more than twenty years.
