Rick Santorum Defends Biblical Values, Gets Blasted By Penn State Student

On Piers Morgan's show this week, Rick Santorum stated that he's not a member of the clergy, and therefore it wasn't his job to state whether or not homosexuality is a 'sin.' He could, however, state that homosexuality is wrong, and that if his son were gay, he would help him through his 'difficult time' to learn to lead a 'healthy,' 'faithful' life. Morgan presses Santorum on whether or not his views, and the views of the Catholic Church, are bigoted. Santorum concedes, then rejects the claim.

Santorum has gay friends, you see. Or so he says. I wonder, however, if Rick Santorum understands that friendship is a two-way street. Somehow I wonder if those folks would claim Santorum as a friend.



Later this week, the frothy mix visited Penn State, where he threw a hissy fit after a student started dropping science on his ass. And, in typical religious right fashion, Santorum brushed it off as ideological conspiracy bullshit.

 

Rick, if you're going to continue to stand by 'biblical truths' as a politician, you'd best get used to being challenged by the growing body of evidence that conclusively shows that sexual orientation is not a choice. If you wish to keep thumping the Bible on the campaign trail, you may want to consider bowing out and becoming a member of the clergy.

  1. Hi. I stumbled on to this blog today and found these videos interesting. It is refreshing to see a politician, exposed as only a real person, argue/debate the people of America.

    But I'm writing this comment to comment on your editorial style. I find resentment distasteful and unprofessional, especially for a journalist/blogger. I am in no way justifying Santorum's position. But when you refer to him as "the frothy mix", you are resorting to a low form of name-calling.

    I hope in the future your criticisms can rest on their own merits and not your cynicism.

  3. The AMA and CDC saying that fatty foods cause heart disease isn't proof of ANYTHING! It's just that the AMA and CDC agree with you! They're just a group!

    They're a group that make recommendations and take positions based on scientific evidence. This is a presidential candidate in 2011? REALLY?

  4. "an organization supporting a position is not evidence of benefit (edit: or by extrapolation, detriment) to society."
