“the leftist position of silencing Christianity”

We don’t have to silence Christianity, any more than talk of football, the art of renaissance Italy, or trigonometry. I am not like the liberal banishing faith from the public square. I just don’t want precious campaign time wasted on irrelevancies. And, yes, it is irrelevant. For however much Santorum or anyone else’s faith influences his ideology, it doesn’t do so enough to justify him and us sacrificing energy to defend it when we could be infinitely more strategic.

Simpson is the perfect example of why RINOs are completely useless in and out of office.

They can be counted on to disappoint when the rubber meets the road.

“He believes that gays and lesbians, he mentioned in an interview in 2003, about bestiality, and gays and lesbians.”

Having a stroke, Alan?

Let’s send that idiot Simpson to a bath house somewhere, and after he’s had his fudge packed for a few hours, we’ll ask him if he thought it was ‘disgusting’.

STFU Simpson, ya senile loser.

Santorum fears homosexuals? That’s odd. One would think if he feared them he wouldn’t be so outspoken against their lifestyle.

is Al speaking out on behalf of his fellow Episcopalians? Doubt they would all approve.

Simpson, Dole, McCain, Lugar, and many other old time Republicans began their congressional career at a time when “go along to get along” was the guiding rule. Most of their time was spent in the minority and they became comfortable and prospered in that role. They developed a loyalty to the institution rather than to the people who elected them. Those republicans like Gingrich, Santorum, DeMint, Coburn, and a few others who dare to play by a different set of rules are a greater threat to their existence than is any democrat.

Most straight men I know think homosexual acts with 2 men are disgusting. So what. As long as people are treated with respect.

Simpson is another unprincipled RINO hack who stands for nothing and means nothing.

Guess Christians should be barred from public office. We are, after all, a bunch of homophobes.

If there is any concern with public health, then let it be understood that male homosexuals are the #1 vector for the spread of infectious diseases among humans and are an unnecessary public health threat costing the system billions. Male homosexuals have the highest incidence of HIV/AIDS, syphilis, drug-resistant gonorrhea, entamoeba histolytica, chlamydia, herpes simplex II, Chancroid, Drug Resistant TB, Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis non A & B, just to name a few.

Oh my, you don't sound like you're embracing diversity at ALL!

You are correct and this is one of the few cogent replies on this thread. Every time Mitch Daniels says the same thing, folks on this board lambaste him with boiling spit, but the fact is that the most important issue is to stop the steady slide of our Republic into a socialist quagmire. If the Republicans prefer their precious social issues to basic liberty and freedom, they will lose to Obama once again and we the people are likely to lose everything we cherish. Once our liberty is gone, there will be no discussion of any social issues, other than “social justice”.

I have worked in public health for too long and seen it all. The picture of “the gay lifestyle” is very disgusting from a public health official standpoint. Most people have no idea. It is the general public’s misfortune to have this deviance marketed by hollywood’s homosexual writers.

Someone posted this at the Townhall site, which would be informative to those on this site as well, regarding Rick’s alleged homophobia:

Rick Santorum’s Wife: Rick “Loves” Gays.

http://thenewcivilrightsmovement.com/rick-santorums-wife-rick-loves-gays/politics/2012/01/17/33307

A gay man served as a top-level senior aide to Senator Rick Santorum for ten years. That the virulently anti-gay Santorum — who has also this week taken heat for remarks that appeared to be racist — would hire a gay man who also happens to be black no doubt will leave many Americans scratching their heads.

We need more people who (like you) have worked first hand with, and know the facts of this matter from a public health perspective and are willing to step forward and simply tell the truth. What homosexuals (I refuse to call them by their hijacked name 'gay') fail to understand is a very simple rule of nature which is:
"the ANUS is an EXIT, not an ENTRY".

The fools insist on defying nature, and nature responds with righteous reciprocation by releasing any and all infectious entities upon the perpetrators.

I can’t be the only one to speak out and I can only speak in certain venues. My job would otherwise be in peril. What I have learned, I definitely will report elsewhere and you should do the same.
