with those that commit beastiality, has said that gay couples shouldn't legally be allowed to raise children, AND brought home a premature-born, dead fetus to show his kids because he thought they should learn from it. And that's only the beginning of where this guy stands...he wants to take away womens rights too.
So how are you any better? Persecuting him for his beliefs? Whether you agree with some of them or not that's how he feels, and he has his reasons for believing what he does.
I get sick of people trying to be PC by not insulting those who are different, but at the same time shooting down be who believe things that are different that themself.
Disagree if you want. I'm not defending his positions, but I'll defend his right to believe what he believes without being labled as "crazy."
Are you serious? The difference is that our friend Tikkanen doesn't want to legislate his beliefs. Santorum is certainly entitled to his bigotry, but he most definitely is not entitled to make his beliefs law.
To summarize: he has the right to think what he wants, but I have the right to call him a ******* for it.
Isn't EVERY law an imposition of someone's conception of morality or making one's beliefs law? Is it not a "moral" decision or an imposition of one's beliefs to place certain elements of human conduct beyond the purview of government action?
But I digress...
Back to the discussion (and as a Santorum supporter), I think it is good for proponents of keeping the Penguins in Pittsburgh that such a high-profile politician was willing to come out in support of using gambling revenues to finance the construction of a new arena, even if-as some rightly note-it may present a whiff of desperation...
