Dan Savage — sex advice columnist, creator of the "It Get's Better" Project and all-around gay-dude — Dan Savage on the difference between Ron Paul's homophobia and Rick Santorum's…
"Ron is older than my father, far less toxic than Santorum, and, as he isn't beloved of religious conservatives, he isn't out there stoking the hatreds of our social and political enemies. And Ron may not like gay people, and may not want to hang out with us or use our toilets, but he's content to leave us the fuck alone and recognizes that gay citizens are entitled to the same rights as all other citizens. Santorum, on the other hand, believes that his bigotry must be given the force of law. That's an important difference."
Quick note: If anybody saw your reading that quote, you should probably dowse your laptop in kerosene, drop a match on it and then move into the mountains for about two weeks or so.
Just a precaution.
