  1. Completely irrelevant to the likes of Santorum. People like him don’t understand facts, logic and intellectual thinking.

    What an awful thing to say & completely untrue! What is wrong with him? He should meet my little boy & he’d see how happy he is!

    Unless it is conjured up inside his one sick brain cell, Santorum won’t be swayed by any evidence that doesn’t agree with his illogic.

    I’d love him to meet my 3 daughters, happy, loving, intelligent well rounded kids with hearts of gold.
    Exactly what he doesn’t want to believe!

    1. What else should we expect? He’ll believe in invisible sky gods in the sky but he won’t believe in what’s staring him in the face.

      I’ll just come out and say it but I think fundamental christians like him and Pat Robertson who claim to directly commune with god have mental health problems.

      1. Fundamentalists ANYTHING have mental health problems they don’t trust the very God they claim to serve to ‘handle’ the world, they feel the need to intercede on the behalf of the all powerful, infinite creator….as if HE (SHE) needed their support. I think what this really shows is a ‘lack’ of faith on the part of fundamentalist persons. They don’t trust God to handle it without them LOL

  5. I don’t think people like him (Santorum) should be allowed to be around children and his own kids should be routinely screened to see if they’re infected with his bigotry. Of course that would only happen in a better world. Ironic that a parent can interfere with a child’s mind and can’t be stopped from inoculating an innocent with bigotry.

  6. The perfect response to absolutely everything that comes out of Rick Santorum’s mouth….courtesy of Joan Crawford:

      Thank you Joan Crawford for the vicarious pleasure received (mine) from you “bitch slapping” of this stupid, silly, viscious idiot! Thank you Dana for the link. ;-)

  7. This very sad for to say but the teenagers that are committing suicide today are raised by Heterosexuals.. If I have my info wrong could someone correct me with concrete evidence.

    1. I meant glbt teenagers

      1. I haven’t read any evidence to suggest that having heterosexual parents predisposes LGBT youth to suicide.

        1. Wonder what would happen if your parents hated you, and you were outed to your potential new friends at college.

          Remember Tyler Clementi – note the catholic name. HIs mom had a fit when he told her he was gay just before going to college.

          then, with a buildup of fear over 18 years about social acceptance, all he needed was to fear he wouldnt be accepted at college.

          They should toss a couple members of the catholic hierarchy off the same bridge he jumped from.

  8. The man has no soul.

  9. Whilst the outcome of the research could have been easily predicted by anyone with any sense of perspective or humanity, it is still welcome to have it presented by respected academics who have carried out impartial research …

    Unfortunately, I fear the comments of many others on here regarding Santorum is true … that despite evidence that demonstrates his rhetoric as false – he will not be deviated, because evidence does not matter to him …

    1. David Myers 21 Jan 2012, 7:11am

      This is not the first study to make this finding. There have been many over the last ten years!

  10. The woman next door to me is currently telling her two year old daughter to shut the f@”k up.

    Is she a lesbian?

    If she is someone should probably tell her husband…

  11. A silly ignorant man who should not be given any publicity ever. He is irresponsible, anti-social and a no-hoper. To be ignored.

  12. Robert in S. Kensington 19 Jan 2012, 8:54pm

    So what does he say about single hetero parents and widows and widowers with children? What exactly are those children robbed of I wonder? What about children in orphanages? What a vile specimen of the human race he is, assuming he’s that human. This is the same man who’s wife had to have her pregnancy terminated for health reasons and took the premature baby home to show his young children who their brother might have been. Beyond sick.

  13. I’m just waiting for him to get caught with his pants down like Ted Haggard.

    The sooner that man is out of the Presidential race the better. It is better for a child to have both mother and her same-sex partner at home than it is for mother to be strugling with bringing up a child while the family breadwinner is in the penitentiary. Like his Pope, Rick Santorum seems to have a real bee in the bonnet about homosexuality. He may gain a lot of votes out in the American Mid-West but in the big cities and on the seaboards he his going to get a pasting in the primaries and caucuses.

  15. Is there a single minute in the day when Rick ISN’T thinking about LGBT people?! Talk about obsessed!

  16. Robert in S. Kensington 20 Jan 2012, 1:40pm

    Republicans have NO intellectual curiosity and wouldn’t know the truth if it stared them in the face. Instead, they rely on sound bites, spin from right wing organisations and media outlets and present the information as factual. The sad thing is, a lot of their electorate fall for it, arguably the dumbest in the western hemisphere. If any of them become the next president, LGBT people will have to give serious consideratoin to leaving their country altogether, life will be hell under a right wing regime.

    1. jamestoronto 20 Jan 2012, 2:16pm

      Many have already left or in the process of doing so.

  17. Religious fundamentalist’s logic doesn’t live up to reality ….. What a Surprise!! :O

  18. Who robs children – his catholic church.

    See the liinks below, eg in spain, the church stole 300,000 babies from mothers who werent married, supported political groups opposed by the church ets.

    the same church which had a treaty with Hiltler, Mussolini and Franco.
