Santorum Is The Real Victim Here


It is so very sad, what the gays have done
To a wonderful person like Rick
They label him hateful, but he loves every one
Though the things that they do make him sick

Santorum believes that gay marriage is wrong
And the gays call that view an attack!
But “separate but equal” keeps straight marriage strong—
It’s ok to seat gays in the back

The horrible things that these activist gays
Do to Rick, are too awful to mention
When really, he loves them—he just hates their ways
Homophobia’s not his intention!

Gays shouldn’t get married. That’s Rick’s point of view.
It’s not that he wants to restrict ‘em
But it’s there in his bible, which is your bible too…
Santorum is really the victim!

Weapons-grade projection, after the jump:

CNN’s Political Ticker reports Rick Santorum’s wife is defending her husband against the cruel and vicious attacks against him by gay activists. “Rick doesn’t hate anyone”, she says, and if you can’t trust a politician’s wife to tell the truth about him, who can you trust?

“I think it is very sad what the gay activists have done out there. They vilify him, and it is so wrong,” Karen Santorum said at a South Carolina forum. “Rick does not hate anyone. He loves them. What he has simply said is marriage shouldn’t happen.”

See? No reason to think he hates gays, simply because he views them as second-class citizens.

Along with his wife, Santorum weighed in on Monday, saying some people misinterpret his views against same-sex marriage as attacks.

“I’m doing what I’m called to do, which is love everyone and accept everybody,” the candidate said. “But this is a public policy difference, and I think that some see that public policy difference as a personal assault.”

This is the danger of religion. Santorum can convince himself that he’s the victim here, when all he wants to do is deny gays the same treatment as straights. He’s righteous, not bigoted. These are not his own prejudices, these are God’s will.

It’s a good thing Rick Santorum doesn’t hate anyone. If this is how he treats the people he loves…

    It’s just funny to watch any politician claim to “love” anybody, when the “love” is always proportional to the size of the checkbook.

    @ OP

    He’s righteous, not bigoted.

    Righteousness is bigotry.

    He’d like to convince us that he’s us
    That he loves each one of us oh, just so
    Drivel is short lived and smarm just don’t go
    And it sure as shit ain’t just like Jesus

    In my time here on earth
    I’ve seen so many phrases
    Go through changes in meaning
    And become pop catchphrases

    First “gay,” and then “straight,”
    And then “LGBTQ.”
    Just ask yourself, friend,
    Is one of them you?

    The “Coloreds” and “Negros,”
    The “ladies” and “dames,”
    They try to raise issues
    By changing their names.

    One phrase has not yet
    Become quite so memetic.
    In rightwinger’s mouths,
    It is almost emetic.

    If there’s only one trope
    That I’d like to go viral —
    Turning and turning,
    A widening spiral —

    When right-wingers spout
    Their obscene whining snivelege,
    Just hold out your hand and say
    “Please, check your privilege.”

    I am SO sick and tired of that “Love the sinner, hate the sin” trope. When did all the X-tians become Hindu? That’s a Ghandi quote, ferchristsakes!
