Questioning Rick Santorum Is "Bigotry," According To Rick Santorum

News

Whiny rodent Rick Santorum has faced a lot of prejudice lately, especially since gay people are out doing jihad to him, every single day. And even the non-gay people are ganging up on him now. Why? BECAUSE THEY ARE BIGOTS, screams Rick Santorum.


Presidential candidate Rick Santorum defended his position on gay marriage Tuesday while speaking to students at Pennsylvania State University, and slammed CNN's Piers Morgan for questioning him as a "bigot" in a pre-taped interview that aired Wednesday night.

"I had Piers Morgan call me a bigot, because I believe what the Catholic Church teaches with respect to homosexuality," Santorum said, heatedly. "So now I'm a bigot because I believe what the Bible teaches."

In the interview, Morgan pressed the former Pennsylvania senator on his moral beliefs about gay rights, an issue he's repeatedly spoken about on the campaign trail.

Santorum said he subscribes to the Catholic Church's teachings, which deem homosexuality a sin.

Morgan argued that people have a difficult time coming out because "of the level of bigotry that's out there against them."

"And I have to say that your views you've espoused on this issue are bordering on bigotry, aren't they?" Morgan asked, adding that society has evolved in how it views homosexuality.

Santorum countered that the Church's position is founded on more than 2,000 years of history. To adapt those beliefs based on the changing ways of society, he said, would be immoral.

Santorum then lobbed a charge of bigotry back at Morgan.

"Trying to redefine something that is seen as wrong – from the standpoint of a church – and saying a church is bigoted because it holds that opinion that is biblically based, I think that is, in itself, an act of bigotry," Santorum said.

Today, we are all bigots. [CNN]

Yr Wonkette has been getting quite a few visits from trolls lately, although most of the infestations have been incredibly tiresome and not at all worth discussing here. We're talking, like, not even as good as ol' Turgid Love Muscle Guy. Come to think of it, we haven't seen him in a while; hope he's OK. At least health-wise.

In 2006, Bob Casey Jr., then the Pennsylvania state treasurer, defeated Rick Santorum and took his seat in the US Senate; presumably only after having it steam cleaned. Not that Casey wanted anything much to do with Dan Savage, the columnist who had helpfully made the alternative definition of "Santorum" one of the best demonstrations of the power of trolling for the prior three years. But in '06, Casey's campaign actually declined a donation from Savage; Casey's finance director thanked him, but suggested maybe Savage could give the money to a group working against Santorum so Casey wouldn't get flak for taking the donation. That was back when Dems were happy to talk about civil unions but frightened of gay marriage, and Casey just plain wussed out on the chance to bring a "weeks-long debate about feces, lube, and assfucking" to the Senate race, as then-Wonket Dave Weigel put it. But Bob Casey has come rather a long way since then, and he now supports marriage equality. He might still be a bit shy about a full-on embrace of buttsechs talk, however.
