Rick Santorum Says Gays Will End Families…….

The Ex-Senator, Rick Santorum, seems to think we;  our little gathering  of gay and lesbian people are a lot more powerful than even we thought we were,   he thinks we have to the power to overthrow the entire religious establishment. But,  not only that,  he seems to think we can destroy the entire human race by ending families and smashing to pieces over two thousand years of marriage by simply living under the same laws as everyone else!  Gosh,   we’ve got some power then huh Rick.

The former senator,  not popular enough to run for President,  has stepped up joined the campaign against equal marriage in Washington state.  He claims that  if marriage equality became a reality, churches and families would be destroyed.   The former Republican presidential candidate said that marriage would “disintegrate” if equal marriage became law.   He was addressing the audience at a closed-door Spokane fundraiser for the Family Policy Institute of Washington, an anti-marriage equality group.

There are only a few weeks to go before the  November 6th,  referendum on equal marriage takes place in the state of Washington, which is a milestone for equality in the State. The video of Mr Santorum’s full address  is posted by SeattlePI,  in which he claims  “This is a turning point in American history and, yes, the state of Washington,” he said.   “The movement you are fighting is the most important movement to win,” he said, “This issue will destroy and undermine the church in America more than any other movement,”

Mr Santorum warned that the fight against equal marriage rights was more important than the anti-abortion battle, and that marriage, and the American family, would “disintegrate” if equal marriage became law.

He described opponents to the referendum as “on the side of truth,” and said: “You folks are in the front line. You folks are in the foxhole.”    He said that Western European countries were “declining” because of “a secular revolution, a godless revolution”, which threatened to spread to America and “destroy the institutions of America’s foundation, destroy the American family.”

Mr Santorum whined on  about the “normalisation, acceptance, tolerance,” of LGBT people since the 1990s, and said: “This will be the norm in America,” he said, “this is what you are fighting. You are on the front lines.”

The deeply homophobic Santorum doesn’t like gay people obviously,  from his remarks it seems like he doesn’t want us to even be allowed to be free in America,  the land of the free.  He seems to be saying simply allowing gay people to share the same legal rights as our heterosexual counterparts will somehow change the way straight people love each other.    His remarks come hot on the back of a poll last week that showed the population of Washington  supported marriage equality was running at 57 per cent.  How allowing two people to join together in marriage would end other peoples families seems a bit far fetched by anybody with even a reasonable IQ of say over 2.

Maine and Maryland will also be voting on marriage equality on November 6. At the same time, Minnesota voters will choose whether to make a constitutional amendment which would define marriage as only between one man and one woman.  This is a most troubling time and a crucial one in American history,  as the number of states that increasingly go down to rout of setting up laws to ban marriage equality,  the more they are sending the message that gay and lesbian’s are second class citizens.  Discrimination is widespread all over the country and the USA is one of very few most powerful nations on earth that DONT have national laws to prevent discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation.  There is increasing concern in the international community over the anti-equality stance and the laws that legally permit discrimination in the USA and undoubtedly  the  US reputation is being harmed dramatically.
