‘Douche du Jour’– GOP Presidential Candidate Rick Santorum: “I’ll Die” to Prevent Gay Marriage

It’s tough these days to find people who are willing to die for what they believe in. It’s even tougher to find folks who’ll lay down their lives in defense of bigotry. Good thing there’s Rick Santorum, Republican candidate for President, who says he’d make the ultimate sacrifice in order to prevent millions of Americans from enjoying the same rights he takes for granted.

In an interview with CaffeinatedThoughts.com, Santorum burnished his homophobic credentials by declaring that he would die to prevent same-sex marriage. “The battle we’re engaged in right now is same sex marriage, ultimately that is the very foundation of our country, the family, what the family structure is going to look like,” he said. “I’ll die on that hill.”

The former U.S. senator also slammed birth control in the interview, saying it’s “not okay.” If elected President (how can an atheist say ‘God forbid!’?), Santorum said he’d “repeal Obamacare and get rid any idea that you have to have abortion coverage or contraceptive coverage.”

“One of the things that I will talk about that no president has talked about before is I think the dangers of contraception in this country, the sexual liberty idea and many in the Christian faith have said, you know contraception is OK. It’s not OK because it’s a license to do things in a sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be.”

He continued: “I know most presidents don’t talk about those things, and maybe people don’t want us to talk about those things. But I think it’s important that you are who you are.”

Unless, of course, you are a gay or lesbian American who wishes to marry the person you love.
