Santorum: Gays don’t deserve ‘privilege’ of marriage because gay unions don’t ‘benefit society’

Saturday, February 4, 2012

Rick Santorum told a gay man in Fulton, Missouri Friday afternoon that he didn’t deserve the “privilege” of marriage because his same-sex relationship does not “benefit” society in the same way that opposite-sex marriage does.

Marriage, Santorum explained is an “intrinsic good” in which gay and lesbian people should not be allowed to partake in:

SANTORUM: You’re not entitled “to special treatment under the law…[Marriage is] not a right, it’s something that has existed since the beginning of human history as an institution where men and women come together for the purposes of forming a natural relationship as God made it to be. And for the purposes of having children and continuing that civilization. It is an intrinsic good…And as a result of that, we extend a privilege. We extend certain privileges to people who do that because we want to encourage that behavior. [...]

Two people who may like each other or may love each other who are same-sex, is that a special relationship? Yes it is, but it is not the same relationship that benefits society like a marriage between a man and a woman.

  5. how does “hetero” marriage benefit society?? oh so they can divorce anywhere between 55 minutes and 72 days? and so they can have affairs for years, divorce and marry their mistress? that’s exactly what i want my kids to learn and benefit from.

  34. santorum obviously wants to run the country according to a bible written over 1500 years ago by hundreds of men rather than by the documents created by our founding fathers or the foundations of a democratic society where only one class of citizen is permitted. To deny right to one group of citizens that is guranteed to others creates a second class citicenry that our founding father were careful not to allow.

  53. Santorum, Marriage is a privaledge within a Religious Institution, and in yours and my case (though I am Gay), that Institutions so happens to be the Roman Catholic Church, BUT it is our right in the Civil Secular Institutions such as the State Supreme Courts, U.S. Supreme Court, and based on the United States Constitution. This is how I see the Separation of Church and State.

  54. …and the scary part is that this nutjob was actually elected to the senate…

    Posted on Saturday, February 4, 2012 at 10:58am
  55. Ok so lets get this right, their argument has been the bible, moral rights, family, divorce rate.. now this? Last time I checked marriage was between 2 people in love, it has zero to do with benefiting society.. now if they want to get into THAT part of the argument.. throwing aside the factor of love and companionship.. then yes there is a HUGE reason its important to society.. it has to do with the fact there are tax differences for married couples, how the law recognizes partners in matters of life/death and property… how things are handled in court.. etc.. him and all the kind like him have lost touch with reality.. in 20 years when we look back at this like the civil rights movement they will have secured themselves in the bad guy section of the history books.. people will look back and wonder, “why was it such a big deal?” and “how awful”… hope he likes that place in history

    Posted on Saturday, February 4, 2012 at 10:58am
  56. This just proves that Santorum has no knowledge of the history or marriage.

    Posted on Saturday, February 4, 2012 at 10:58am
  57. If marriage is a “privilege” and not a “right,” how is it that convicted felons, some of whom will never get out of prison, can get married to women with whom they will most likely never be able to consummate the union?

    I do not need to watch the above video to know that Rick Santorum is not only stupid, but he is also bat-shit crazy and nobody in their right minds should any thinking person want him anywhere in a position of leadership.

    The Republican Party is always yammering about how they are the Party of “limited” or “smaller” government and yet they want to actually EXPAND the government to permit the State to poke its long, snotty nose into people’s bedrooms and women’s uteruses.

    Posted on Saturday, February 4, 2012 at 11:03am
  62. So gays aren’t allowed the “privilege” of marriage because staying with your partner for 25 years + in a closed relationship doesn’t benefit society, but a serial polygamist who has multiple affairs outside his marriage and who is on his third wife (who he cheated with on his second wife – what’s to say he won’t cheat on her with the woman who will be his fourth) deserves the privilege? I’m confused.

    Posted on Saturday, February 4, 2012 at 11:05am
  63. next he will want to have a constitutional ammendment banning samesex marriage. Which would require them to violate the ninth ammendment. Good luck santorum. Youll need it.

  66. When did marriage benefit society? Heterosexual marriages are usually HELL for all involved parties. I see little difference when homoseuxals are allowed to marry. I just don’t see what it is he’s trying to convey, and God help me, I’m actually to understand his nonsense. But really, all I can understand is… BLAH BLAH BLAH I’M AN UNHAPPY INDIVIDUAL AND THEREFORE NEED SOMETHING TO HATE. OH LOOK, A GAY! Didn’t Hitler do this during the economic crisis in Germany, where the Jews wer blamed for everything?

  68. The further he goes in his campaign the more frank Santorum is becoming in laying out his anti-gay thinking. According to him, In marriage we grant a “special privilege” to heterosexuals, and yet how many times have those who want to deny even basic anti-discrimination to gays in housing and jobs protection have called it “special privilege?” The real statement Rick should make is, “Look. I hate gay people. I don’t want them to have even basic civil rights, much less equal rights with heterosexuals, and I really don’t like any other religion than the Catholic church.” I will dance in the street on the day that fecal-matter Santorum gives his final concession speech.

  72. Gay unions don’t ‘benefit society…
    Really?

    Impress me with your intelligence of how ‘Traditional Marriage’ benefits society outside your protected wealthy world that is hidden from the realities of the everyday American Citizen you and your colleagues have deemed that a working wage is $7.25 an hour…

    The absolute benefit to society, OUR American Society is as follows:
    http://www.house.gov/house/Constitution/Constitution.html

    NO WHERE, I repeat NO WHERE, does it say anything about Marriage between a man and woman ‘Benefiting’ Society. And an example of how your constituent, Newt Gingrich, cheating on his wives demonstrates what? This is a ‘Benefit’ to Society?

    Marriage to the GLBQT community asks for nothing other than having the same protections afforded to Marriage Laws that Protect a spouse under law. That is all that the GLBQT Community is seeking.

    Not tax loopholes, No Reasons to cheat on our spouses. Another ‘Benefit’ to society that I’m sure is so moral.

    This whole issue boils down to your limited ability to separate Church from State (yeah, including those million dollar contributions from churches) Even a child of a family whose parents work for minimum wage, raised in a public school knows that law, which was one of the greatest movements in the creation of the United States of America. If you want to push your religious beliefs on people, go back to Spain in the 1400′s and Preach all you want.

    Politicians have forgotten that they are elected to represent the people. If you personally believe that the protections of marriage are not for the GLBQT community (look back to the early 70′s when certain members of congress tried to pass laws to prevents whites marrying blacks…), that offer protection to the person they wish to share their life with. If you truly feel that is wrong, bring it to the people of your state. Ask for feedback. If the majority are against it, then so be it. If they are okay with it, then shut your mouth and speak up for the majority. That’s why a person is elected to office.

    It seems that the way it works in Washington DC these past few decades is I want something, you want something, Screw the people, we’re here for 4 years, they’ll never be able to prove it or catch us… Example: Congress passed in 1964 the National Wildlife Conservation Program to protect the Nations Wilderness and Recreation needs;; and added the Clean Air and Water Act a year later. HOW is it that the Oil Companies pushing Lobbyist Take that away from Americans? And Pass legislation to remove their liability when the pollute the environment, passing the cleanup costs to the citizens? Not to mention the 6,000 new polluted waterways from the laws just passed to prevent liability to the same oil companies who can pump chemicals into the ground for fracking, releasing toxic chemicals into the water supply. The few top people who control the gas and oil just took the Future Land and Recreation away from the children and grandchildren of this country. I’m sure this was a ‘Benefit’ to society too…

    Humor us with your ignorance. Better yet, come live in the REAL America for a year on Minimum Wage, Pay for housing, Healthcare, Transportation, Raising Kids, Paying for College; Then come back to the American People and if you truly learned anything, you’ll start censoring some of the insane garbage that spills from your mouth!

WTF every human being is a benefit in some way to society even if that benefit is making an example of what not to do so others can learn from their mistakes. I suppose you call yourself a “Christian” too? Well you need to get back in that bible to reread & learn what Jesus was here to teach & die for. You, sir are more of a hindrance to society than any LGBT person I have ever known! Take your hate & crawl back under the rock from whence you came! You Hatemonger

  83. He could be right. Lets think about this. How many marriages end in divorce? Perhaps we need to leave it to the curches to decide on marriage. The churches can then decide on divorce or anullment, and the distrubution of property, and who gets custody of the children. Ban all government sanctioned marriage and jus have civil unions for all consenting adults.

  102. I don’t recall the us constitution stating that rights only go to citizens that are judged to benefit society by those on power. In fact I thought that was the whole point of equal rights for all – because King George decided who deserves rights.

  114. Yeah, all of those hetero divorces, child custody battles, domestic violence cases tying up the courts really are helping society Ricky. What an idiot!!! Oh, an while we are on the subject, how many hetero couples have chosen to abort pregnancies??? Does that benefit your society Ricky???

  116. So is he heading back to the Senate when he is finally done on the campaign trail? It is sickening to me that these folk complain about our President wrangling the Constitution (and he has not been found guilty of mishandling the law) while we have people like Santorum who say and do things that are so against the rules of our nation.

  120. Hey Rick, how does adultery, spousal abuse, and/or murder in a straight marriage benefit society?

  125. Oh yeah? Prove it. 60% of heterosexual marriages end in divorce costing society a fortune. Before health care went critical divorce was the leading cause of bankruptcy and child poverty. That kind of cancels out any benefit to society doesn’t it? Gay tax dollars have gone to pay for the over 1,000 fed. and over 900 State benefits straight couples got and we are still denied. We want our money back. It was a shitty investment. Note to Santorum: want to be a good Catholic? Demand that no-fault divorce be made illegal again. Until you have the guts to do that keep your mouth shut about us.
