• Rick Santorum: Slavery and Gay Marriage Pretty Much the Same Thing

    Ppppffffffff… This Herman Cain guy. Am I right? I mean, what's up with him getting all this press these days. It's almost as if people aren't aware that he holds an insufficient amount of hatred for gay people

    Rick Santorum, continuing to try to stake out territory as the most stalwart social conservative in the presidential race, tonight raked fellow GOP'er Herman Cain for his "refusal to defend traditional marriage."

    In a written statement, Santorum notes that on NBC’s "Meet the Press" this morning, Cain said he "wouldn't seek a constitutional ban for same sex marriage"and that states "would make up their own minds."

    Herman Cain would not seek to change the Constitution of the United States for the purpose of further subjugating an already put-upon minority group?! Whaaaaat?! And he calls himself an American?

    Santorum said: "I have been a long-time advocate for states' rights. However, I believe as Abraham Lincoln did — that states don't have the rights to legalize moral wrongs."

    Exactly! Exactly as Abraham Lincoln did. Because, let's face it: Stopping two dudes from marrying each other is pretty much the modern day equivalent of putting to an end the institutionalized practice of owning human beings as property.

    Okay, they're not exactly the same, but they're pretty close.
