Is Rick Right? Ctd

Rick Santorum has many views, some I think he gets right, other not so much.

Like this one equating gay marriage to loving your mother-in-law:

“Is anyone saying same-sex couples can’t love each other? I love my children. I love my friends, my brother. Heck, I even love my mother-in-law. Should we call these relationships marriage, too?” (Santorum’s Philadelphia Inquirer column, May 22, 2008)

    We do call these relationships “Family”.

    Santorum deserves his dictionary association. This man must have obtained his law degree in a packet of Doritos.

    Santorum 1. The frothy mix of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex. 2. Senator Rick Santorum

      I have always thought that new-dictionary definition was a weak attempt at a cheap shot – if that is the sort of detrius sloshing around after “making love” it sounds like a pretty shitty lifestyle!

    Instead of just being scandalised by the existence of Rick Santorum why don’t commentators engage his point, to wit, human relationships of love and support come in a variety of shapes, sizes and purposes – do all of them need to be shoe-horned into the world-historical concept of marriage.

    So much strawman there from Santorum , it is amazing he does not spontaneously combust.

    If they do make gay marriage legal then maybe they need two titles for relationships.

    Man & woman = marriage
    Man & man or woman & woman = gay marriage

    Make it legal that gay people have to say yeah we’re happily gay married.

    That way there is no confusion (maybe make rings get put on right hands instead of left or something)?

    Sound a bit gay? Possibly……..

    Traditionalism has taken a hit that he is trying to reclaim. The purpose of a sexual union is procreation. Man + man =0. Woman + woman = 0. ‘Nuff said. It’s unatural.
