Santorum's All Over the Left

From the Des Moines Register:

Speaking to about 190 people at the Lyon County Republican dinner, Santorum pledged to continue his fight against same-sex marriage.

“The reason the left has gone after same-sex marriage is because it’s a two-fer,” Santorum said. “When you redefine marriage, you cheapen marriage. You make it into something less valuable, less special … [and] it is a sure bet that will undermine faith.”

Who told Frothy our secret plan? Musta been one of those gay friends he's always on about. Man, if I ever find out who those guys are...

It's almost hard to imagine that Rick Santorum actually believes the things that come out of his mouth, because they're so unbelievably batshit. Does he really think that liberals are out to "cheapen marriage" and "undermine faith?" Who even thinks like that? I mean, I'm sure there are a few militant atheists who don't believe in marriage, and they probably side with the liberals, but they're not exactly a majority.

You know what cheapens marriage? Not having sex before it. That's a really destructive thing to advocate, because it encourages people to get married at an age when their marriage is far more likely to end in divorce. You know what else cheapens marriage? Not using birth control and then advocating the idea that even if your wife's life could be saved, abortion is not an option. Because, you know, nothing cheapens your marriage like having a dead wife.

I can't think of a single marriage, actually, that would be threatened by gay marriage. Can you? And as for faith, well, it has no place in politics but can be of very great personal significance. If Santorum could learn that concept, he might be a viable candidate. But, since he can't, he's not. Thank God.

  1. Totally disagree with the comment, a few militant atheists don't believe in marriage. This implies that marriage is a religious institution. Yet if you want to get married in this country-- you can only do it with the OK of the state. If you have a religious officiant do it, they are just window dressing and can only do it with the government's official blessing. Being an atheist has nothing to do with believing in marriage. Atheists just don't believe in gods.

    1. Read the whole thing, Susan. I was commenting not only on the fact that Rick Santorum thinks liberals want to destroy marriage, but also that he thinks that we want to destroy faith. Hence the militant atheist bit. It wasn't at all meant to imply that atheists as a group have any opinion whatsoever on marriage, and I have a hard time believing that anyone who read the entire post could have taken it that way.
