Rick Santorum: I don’t hear arguments about Gay Marriage! Student argues back.

Via on Aug 31, 2011

Time out, Time out, Time out, Time out…

How dare they brand me “Bigot!”

So now I’m a bigot, because I believe what the Bible teaches?!

Well, yes and no. The Bible teaches a lot of things…you’re the one choosing to use the Bible to back up your bigotry.

Also, he offers the ridiculous (because it’s untrue) argument that marriage has always been between a man and a woman.

And if marriage were a privilege given by government because we want stable environments for our children, then why are childless marriages permitted? Why is divorce permitted?

Social science isn’t there to back him up, let alone do so overwhelmingly, on “the best habitat for children to be raised.”

Gawker, for once, did a good job reporting up this one…not the too-frequent sickly-sweet gossipy trash:

    Santorum is right: the teachings of the Catholic Church ARE bigoted. I would have asked him what Jesus said about homosexuality. The answer is: absolutely nothing! But he did say "What you do to the least among you, you do also to me" So, by this statement, I think following the teachings of Jesus would preclude one from denying civil rights to gay people. BTW, for a good laugh, google "Santorum"
