But Rick, He Has A Dick
When last we talked about Rick Santorum, he was busy crying to the FRC about the persecution of Christians. He made up a bunch of bullshit, some of which centered around the baking of cakes for teh gay. So it’s fairly safe to assume that Rick does not approve of gay marriage. Yes, in fact he does not. He said he would refuse to go to such a marriage if invited.
You can always rely on Santorum to play to the ultra-conservative, evangelical Christian base. They eat this shit up. Fortunately for the rest of us, Rick is what we call a “fringe” candidate. I don’t know why you would put down roots with a group that will never net you the presidency. Speaking fees? It’s as good a hustle as any, I suppose. But Rick blew my mind today. He said something recently that I thought I’d never hear from his ilk:
Former Senator Rick Santorum, a longtime culture warrior known for his conservative views on marriage equality and other social issues, said on Saturday than he believes Bruce Jenner when he says he’s a woman.
“If he says he’s a woman, then he’s a woman,” Santorum, who is weighing running for president again in 2016, said in response to a question from BuzzFeed News during a roundtable with reporters at the South Carolina Republican Party’s convention. “My responsibility as a human being is to love and accept everybody. Not to criticize people for who they are. I can criticize, and I do, for what people do, for their behavior. But as far as for who they are, you have to respect everybody, and these are obviously complex issues for businesses, for society, and I think we have to look at it in a way that is compassionate and respectful of everybody.”
I know, right? That’s so…liberal. Why would he say such a thing? When the crazy Christians hear this shit, he’s more toast than he already is. But let me get this straight-a guy can transition into a woman, get tits and wear dresses and that’s OK, but anal sex(which straight people indulge in too) and scissoring in loving, committed relationships is unacceptable? That’s not what the Bible says, and somehow fucking everything you could ever need counsel on is in there. Ask any good Christian.
I’ll try to go easy on Santorum next time he says something idiotic and insane. Aw, who am I kidding?
