Rick Santorum Named to List of Biggest Homophobes of Last 45 Years

The Advocate has released its list of “The 45 Biggest Homophobes of Our 45 Years.” Among the collection of the most anti-gay people is former Senator from Pennsylvania and unsuccessful Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum.

The “man on dog” senator from Pennsylvania got an astonishing number of votes in the Republican presidential primaries this year with his unabashedly antigay agenda. Can that many people really agree with his plan to annul all same-sex marriages and reinstate the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy? His homophobic ideas are too many to list here. Just Google “Santorum” and you’ll find plenty.

Rick Santorum Will Be a Headliner at the Republican National Convention

Rick Santorum will be featured as a speaker at the Republican National Convention in Tampa this month. The keynote speaker has yet to be officially announced (Chris Christie?), but Santorum will join a dais that includes Senator John McCain, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush. We’re pretty sure that Santorum is going to be stumping for Republican candidate Mitt Romney at this thing, but a site set up for Bob Casey’s campaign in 2005 has continued to pay attention to the goings on and points out that you never can be too sure.

Santorum Sure Loves His Chick-Fil-A

Are we surprised? Not a bit. But just when we thought we’d heard enough from former PA senator and one-time presidential hopeful Rick Santorum – he’s resurfaced. Why? Because this guy loves some Chick-fil-A.

He tweeted recently that he and his family were enjoying a meal at the fast food chain. The management of Chick-fil-A recently admitted that they are proud to stand against LGBT rights and same-sex marriage. They’ve also donated millions to anti-gay hate groups in recent years and are facing an enormous boycott. Even the Jim Henson Company pulled its support. And the mayor of Boston told the chain that they’re not welcomed in the city.

But because Santorum pretty much espouses the same homophobic rhetoric (heck, he launched a campaign from it – a failed one, we should add), he said he’d be joining Chick-fil-A on August 1 for an appreciation day launched by another failed GOP presidential contender Mike Huckabee.

“I have been incensed at the vitriolic assaults on the Chick Fil-A company because the CEO, Dan Cathy, made comments recently in which he affirmed his view that the Biblical view of marriage should be upheld,” Huckabee shared on Facebook this week. He accuses the left of vicious hate speech against the company, which is ironic considering it’s Cathy and his cronies who seem to be doing their fair share of hateful smearing (not to mention donating to organizations that have been defined by their own anti-gay attacks).

If these two guys don’t make you want to give up chicken sandwiches, we don’t know what will.

Rick Santorum Is Still Really Jazzed About Chick-Fil-A

Will Rick Santorum Move to Canada?

There’s a whole sect of people who were so upset with the Supreme Court’s decision on President Barack Obama’s controversial health care law that they’ve announced they’re moving to Canada. Rick Santorum has made it clear that he’s less than thrilled with the ruling SCOTUS delivered yesterday. In fact, the former Republican presidential candidate was so incensed that he went ahead and fired off an angry email to supporters:

Today’s outcome is the worst of all scenarios. Not only are our rights being taken away and Americans are being forced to do something we don’t want to do, but now we are being burdened with the biggest permanent tax increase in our nation’s history. This is a sad day.

But it doesn’t stop at sad, does it, Rick?

President Obama believes he is above the law, entitled to abusing his power to get what he wants, and willing to violate the constitution and the oath he was sworn to uphold. He has proven to be a very dangerous person to have this kind of power, and if he is not stopped this November, I am fearful that the make-up of this country as established by our founders will never be the same.

He also made a TV appearance last night to point out that President Barack Obama is more arrogant than Tricky Dick. All of this “danger” talk has us wondering if Santorum’s going to pack up his sweater vests and head for the border. He has to have at least considered it a viable option at this point, eh?
