“Modern Family” Star Says he Refused to Pose for a Picture With Rick Santorum
Salon ^ | THURSDAY, JUL 24, 2014 | DANIEL D'ADDARIO

Eric Stonestreet told the antigay former senator: "I can't do it"

“Modern Family” is a show whose depiction of a gay married couple is so uncontroversial that Democrats and Republicans alike can enjoy it (as evidenced by the show’s getting praised by both Barack Obama and Mitt Romney in 2012). But one of the show’s stars was uncomfortable when approached by one GOP fan.

Eric Stonestreet, the Emmy-winner who plays gay former football player Cameron, told HuffPost Live that he had been approached by Rick Santorum at a recent White House Correspondents’ Dinner. The former Pennsylvania senator and once (and future?) presidential candidate asked for a picture:

I guess he would refuse to take a picture with Martin Luther King Jr. Or President Obama before May 2012?

Tolerance and acceptance? Only one side in the political divide actually has these qualities. That would be Rick Santorum’s side.

Why was Santorum even at the dinner to begin with, is the bigger question.

Republicans need to just tune out all leftist functions and focus on saving the nation.

Eric Stonestreet is straight, he and his ilk are the reason fags have so much power at only 01.6% of the population.

That’s always my first question when this topic comes up. I always ask the person if they voted for Obama in 2008, and if they did, I ask how could they have voted for such a homophobe?

Santorum must know this guy’s history. That being said, he’s okay posing with the guy. Who is the biggest player here, some hack actor or Santorum?

Santorum holds no grudges, is an easy going individual.

So who is the bigger person? Santorum seems to be IMO.

Umm, some fag actor who got his panties in a twist because some GOP anti-fag dude was there. Princess boy here then tells the rest of his lefty ass clowns that he dissed a Republican so it’s all good in AIDSland.

RE:”Another reason to like Rick Santorum, IMHO.”

It might be helpful if it was about someone who was NOT booted out of their last elected office by his voters, like Santorum was.

He is (one of ) the last one who be able to bring back marriage. He should move on to a AM talk radio program as a host.

I feel like a deprived child because I’ve never heard of Modern Family.

Just ruined my entire day to find out I’ve been deprived of the joys of watching a couple of prairie fairies play family.

Yes, this is about as news breaking as those ‘Cat rescued from tree’ stories on Fox and Friends,

Rick who?

I too know nothing about that show, and I am not looking it up.

If its on the TV networks (CBS, NBC,ABC, FOX) I block those channels on my cable box,

I’ve heard of it but not watched it. I have pretty much banned the fag shows in my home as I am sick to death of their constant whining about the glories of their disease riddled lives.

Surprised they’re not all dead from disease.

Ummm,????
So we break out the old 2000 Sore/Loserman bumper stickers and change the name to Rick Santorum/ sore loser 2006??

Did whining like yours make Al Gore POTUS, or even make him a national figure who anyone listens to?

Hypocrite, he was on Fox and Friends a couple months back. I would guess that Ducey and Hasselback also belive marriage is between a Man and a Women.

Actually he is straight playing a gay character. He is married to a woman and they have children. That doesn’t mean he isn’t a jerk though.

I question why Santorum would even attend the White House Correspondents dinner where 95% of the people there hate his guts. I guess Santorum got starry eyed spending too much time inside the Beltway.

I like Santorum, but he was crushed by over 17 points, you can't attribute that to fraud.

Casey Jr. is a fraud, but he legitimately won in 2006.

That would be Rick Santorum’s side.

Santorum's opposed to gay marriage. Stonestreet is in favor of it. What did you expect him to do? Would Sarah Palin want her picture taken with Sean Penn or Jane Fonda?

Did Santorum have his dead kid with him?* May be in a pickle jar? That’d be pretty creepy.

Sorry Santorum and the other re-threads paving the way for RINO Jeb Bush need to do the right thing this time AND STAY OUT OF THE RACE.

This goes for the Huckster and everyone else.

* For those that don’t know. Santorum sadly lost a child. Then he proceeded to take family photos with the dead kid as a publicity stunt to prove how pro-life he is.

There are exactly two reasons to ever watch Modern Family, and they are both Sofia Vergara.
