"Rick Santorum...suggests ...that an imprisoned father is preferable to a same-sex parent."

"Allowing gays to marry and raise children, Santorum said, amounts to "robbing children of something they need, they deserve, they have a right to. You may rationalize that that isn't true, but in your own life and in your own heart, you know it's true."

...the Republican presidential candidate's voice grew emotional as he argued that only a man and woman should be able to marry. "Marriage is not a right," Santorum said. "It's a privilege that is given to society by society for a reason.... We want to encourage what is the best for children."
“If the Supreme Court says you have the right to consensual gay sex within your home, then you have the right to bigamy, you have the right to polygamy, you have the right to incest, you have the right to adultery, you have the right to anything.”


If the Supreme Court says you have the right
to consensual gay sex within your home,
then you have the right to bigamy, you have the right to polygamy,
you have the right to incest, you have the right to adultery,
you have the right to anything.

...a woman...asked whether the right to happiness was grounds for gay people to marry, and Santorum responded by asking whether she believed more than two people could have that right. "If you're not happy unless you're married to five other people, is that OK?" he asked, prompting boos from the audience.

Santorum's ...remark during a 2003 interview that gay marriage is no different from "man on child, man on dog, or whatever the case may be" — have distinguished him as a hero of those who oppose gay rights and brought him a passel of trouble from activists who support them."
