Presidential hopeful Rick Santorum: No ‘privileges’ for gays and lesbians

Monday, April 25, 2011

On the record: Former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) opposes gay marriage, opposes civil unions, wants to reinstate “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” and tells FOX News’ Chris Wallace that gays have the “right” to “employment” (and paying taxes, presumably), but deserve no “privileges.”

Watch:

Santorum is a prospective presidential candidate in 2012, having formed an exploratory committee on April 13.

  19. If the crazy dude in AZ had shot this man instead of the AZ Gov., he would be my hero. Actually I think all people who have the narrow-mindedness of this man should be shot, or gassed, or some other thing to put them out of MY misery.

  20. I am not saying I want to shoot them, just that there should be laws against their particular type of idiocy.

  25. wtf

  26. Wow! I hate how their hate has become refined – with him saying that that gays deserve employment and basic rights…nice, pro-segregation “activists” used almost the same words. Simple truth: if you don’t want a gay marriage, don’t have one! But don’t try to hurt other’s ability to be happy…oy vey, if this is the American way, where can I go to renounce citizenship?

  27. What an ignorant ass! These are the type of people that are going to make this country self distruct! He needs to take his views, opinions, and campaign and shove it up his own ass! If he or Sarah Palin Wins I’m out of this country! It’s already fucked up enough and does not need a another jack ass like Bush to destroy it!

  30. WAY TO GO RICK – telling it like it is! Never heard of the guy, but I like him for actually saying what he thinks. Societies ARE based on families and procreation.

  31. I want to say a few things to the ass who said Societies Are based on families and procreation… I am a lesbian and I have in your words procreated… And I must say dont straight people get privileges… I have been in chruch all my life and I seem to remember that when you get married it is for the rest of your life… And the straight ass holes like this guy are just mad because gays stay together with there partner for life and they cant seem to I mean really think about it is estimated that 40% of all marriages have ended in divorce in the last year and raising so really think about the privileges you get to freely divorce your wife are husband what if he was up there telling you that he was going to band that privilege… I think your fucking mouth would be shut then.. and some one else said that the next thing they will be trying to go back in time and change everything so really do you want to go back in time and live like they did in 20′s and up cause alot of men would shut up the day they come and tell you I am taking your sons and they will fight and if they get killed I will just send a taxi to your house and drop a letter in your hands and leave not even saying sorry for your lose… I truly hope the closed minded people in this world understand that you cant keep us quite and we will not stand around and let you walk all over us anymore we are her and we will not be going any where you will think twice about all the crap you are saying if your kid comes to you and says they are gay or lesbian… and all who say that we are going to hell are that its a sin look in the bible and read it cause if I am going there so are you because the only one that can tell me where I am going is GOD and you are trying to play GOD telling me I am going so remember that next time ASSHOLES
