Poor sad pathetic Rick (the P is silent) Santorum. Santorum, a 2012 Republican Presidential candidate, has now said that the LGBT community has, “gone out on a jihad,” on him. I don’t think he knows the meaning of the word jihad, just as he does not know the meaning of civil rights. I am consistently amazed at how right wing bigots are able to play the “victim” card.
While in Spartanburg, South Carolina, Santorum went on and on about how the LGBT community has waged “a jihad” against him as he then spewed venom against us and against marriage equality. The ever clever Santorum, (I think I just spat up on my mouth a little) went on ad nauseam comparing napkins to marriage equality. Oy! I wish this man would quit listening to the voices in his head:
I said ‘this is a napkin,’This is a napkin. A napkin is what a napkin is. It isn’t a paper towel. It isn’t a car.’ You can call a napkin a car, but it doesn’t make it a car. You can call a paper towel a chair, but it doesn’t make it a chair. Marriage is what marriage is.
Let us examine this, shall we? Can a napkin be a different color and still be a napkin? Can a napkin be made of different fibers, paper, wool, cotton, or silk and still be a napkin? Can a napkin come in different sizes and still be a napkin? Seems to me that if two people love each other and want to make a commitment to each other, regardless of color, size, or age, we should call it marriage. One must wonder why Santorum is so very preoccupied with the gay community? If I didn’t know better, I would wonder if it is a case of unrequited love from his time with Dan Savage.
I wish we did have the super powers ascribed to us by village idiots like Rabbi Yehuda Levin and Pat Robertson. I would not have bothered with Irene and an earthquake, I would have just performed a total makeover for Santorum, Bachmann and all the other bigots. The makeover would have been so complete, I would have made them look like compassionate human beings with hearts–now that is some serious super powers!
