Rick Santorum Disgusted With Pro-Gay, Pro-Abortion, Pro-Porn College Indoctrination
It's amazing how he's a regular on all the mainstream political talk shows now.
Rick Santorum said the nation's colleges are promoting a "sea of antagonism toward Christianity" and "indoctrinating" its youth with ideals that support gay marriage, abortion and pornography.
Santorum called in to Tony Perkins' "Washington Watch" on Tuesday to talk about the 40th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade ruling. The conversation dealt not only with abortion but also included other "symptoms" that have changed the nation.
Perkins spoke broadly, saying pro-choice Americans represent a troubled country that doesn't choose life, meaning "That is to follow the principals, the teachings, the instructions of God ... You see that as you've been in Washington, D.C. There is a rejection of this idea of truth, and that there is a foundation or morality, which needs to be upheld."
Santorum agreed, adding that less young people devote themselves to Christianity. "If you look at the popular culture and what comes out of Hollywood, if you go to our schools and particularly our colleges and universities, they are indoctrinated in a sea of relativism and a sea of antagonism towards Christianity."
"Abortion is a symptom. Marriage is a symptom. Pornography [is a symptom]," he continued. "All of these are symptoms to the fundamental issue that we've gotten away from the truth and the 'Truth-Giver.'"
Santorum has long been against gay marriage and anti-abortion. When he was in the running for the GOP presidential nomination, he vowed to initiate a war on porn if elected. Santorum received his undergraduate degree from Pennsylvania State University, an M.B.A. from the University of Pittsburgh and a J.D. from the Dickinson School of Law but has criticized the notion that college is a critical entry point to the middle class.
"President Obama once said he wants everybody in America to go to college. What a snob!" Santorum said last February, according to the New York Times. "There are good, decent men and women who go out and work hard every day and put their skills to the test that aren't taught by some liberal college professor trying to indoctrinate him. I understand why he wants you to go to college. He wants to remake you in his image."
The Times highlighted a 2008 study that disproved the theory that going to college makes students increasingly liberal. The study found that 18 to 24-year-old students' ideals shifted somewhat leftward, but this was in line with normally occurring shifts in that age group regardless of education.
Poor thing is preaching to an increasingly small choir.
Thanks for playin' Rick, buh-bye!
I'm disgusted by Rick Santorum.

What a twisted crock of shit. Kinda clever in a very twisted way to suggest an education is for snobs. I expect he would like to have servants illiterate; so much more controlable.
I'm talking to his people about a run in 2016.
Has he ever made a speech or any appearance in the past ten years where there has not been any mention of gays? Like James Dobson, everything takes second place to the gays. They may talk about other topics, but they always manage to work around to gays.
Could it be that they're self-hating gay men? Is their desire for male sex always simmering just below the surface?
Hardly ever. Probably. Likely.
The feeling is mutual.
Pro-Gay, Pro-Abortion, Pro-Porn College Indoctrination
Someone needs to tell Ricky that the more he blathers on, the more people are convinced he's a closeted homo.
And, as usual, someone going on and on about only liberals go to college has already gone to college. It was like Mittens complaining about Harvard types after he had two degrees from Harvard.
KILL ALL THE FETUSES!
Gosh, I am a failure as a homo because I haven't indoctrinated one person this week!
R11 We're letting you off with a stern warning this time.
He's getting ready for his next run in 2016.
Let him run.
America needs to see that kind of crazy over and over.
His team from 2012 has already basically admitted he will run for the nomination in 2016 since he was the runner-up in 2012. Republicans often pick the 2nd place finisher to run the next time (eg. McCain was 2nd to Bush, Romney was 2nd to McCain).
Who was runner up in 2012?
Santorum, R16. As I just explained above.
Nothing reaches the youth of today like Rick Santorum and Tony Perkins, I'm sure.
Educated people don't believe his bullshit. He prefers the ignorant, they're more easily manipulated

They may not appeal to the mainstream, but social conservatives remain an important part of the Republican Party. It's going to be interesting watching how the GOP will deal with them in the years to come.
I would love to see a Rick Santorum sex tape where he's gobbling cock and getting DP'd. You know it's what he wants.
I'd love to see that too, R21. Well, I wouldn't actually want to see it, but I'd like to know it exists.
Yes R22, exactly!
He's just cum-dizzy from fucking his hinie-hole with an Xtra-large dildo this holiday weekend.
I really loved it when Luis Leon talked about academy award nominees and porn stars both being created in God's image.
He's part of the Opus Dei cult.
I wonder if he realizes how idiotic he sounds.
He's such a backwater yokel. I'm ashamed he's from my home state. How anyone's given him a national stage is a fucking mystery.
Knew him at Penn State. He was already a conservative shit, but like Ronald Reagan, it took his wife's family to really bring out the crazy, fundamentalist attitude in him.
I honestly don't know why a woman like her ended up with a crazy fundie like him. Didn't she live in sin with an abortion provider or something like that?
[quote]it took his wife's family to really bring out the crazy, fundamentalist attitude in him.
His wife has a real bazarro background. The baby doctor who delivered her became her lover when she was in college. She assisted her lover's patients who were undergoing abortions.
Oops! That should be bizarro background.
So Ricky thinks getting a college education makes one a snob? I guess he and his wife are snobs because they both have a college education and are sending their kids to fancy and pricey private schools.
Calling educated people "snobs" has been a proven winner for conservatives for years. Bush did it. So did Sarah Palin. It's actually a great campaign strategy because it not only allows you to pander to the uneducated, who like to think they're morally superior (ie. the working poor and bible thumping rural hicks), but it serves as a great cover up when your own candidate is a simpleton (again--Bush, Palin). If your candidate is illiterate or just plain dumb, you can spin his image as a down to earth man of the people who's in touch with regular everyday "folks."
sadly true r34.

[bold][italic]Fewer.[/italic][/bold] As in, "Fewer people proofread HuffPo articles than ever before."
Pandora's Box has been opened, Rick. Now slither away in a trail of Santorum.
Every time he gets on an anti-abortion rant, Dems need to bring up his wife's ex-lover, the abortion doctor. People don't know about that and it needs to be kept front and center.
He's just trying out the S.I. Haywakawa strategy for winning ugly in a liberal state. But it won't work this time.
Exactly what r34 said. Republicans have been doing that shit for many years.
His mother should have had an abortion. Look at him in HS.
As we can see from his senior photo, remaining a virgin until marriage was more of a given instead of an option for good old Rick.
Actually, he's right. It was designed that way, the conservative masters of America designed the universities to be intellectual ghettos where liberals were safely confined away from the economy and the corridors of power.
During the Repub primaries I recall while commenting on the "global warming hoax" he stated that the planet earth was basically for the use of mankind- I think he put is like the earth exists to serve man not the other way around.
He is such a dangerous man, really- and evil. One of the hallmarks of true evil in my opinion is someone who thinks they are just the opposite. His intolerance, willful ignorance and twisted interpretations of Christian dogma that he insists on making the law of the land (law has nothing to do with any religious document) is very very twisted. In his mind his piety makes him good, or something like that- as all such people think when they hide behind religion.
People who think that about the Earth R44 have no problem trashing the environment and consuming resources with no thought to the future consequences. After all, god will take care of it.
Such s bitter, ugly man.
I think Rick Santorum has fantasies of sucking of a cast of really hot and ethnically and racially diverse men.
But the recent presidential candidate and former U.S. Senator for Pennsylvania will, no doubt, continue to sing his tunes of denial.
[quote]His mother should have had an abortion. Look at him in HS.
I've never seen such a horrible photo in my life...omg!
Rick Santorum sure protests a lot against gays. Major closet case.
Men who are truly heterosexual don't really think about gay guys too much because it doesn't apply to them and they are too busy thinking about/chasing pussy. The ones like Santorum who have an obsession with gay men are most likely deeply repressed closet cases.
And notice it's always gay men these freaks like Santorum go on and on about. They rarely, if ever, mention lesbians or demonize them in the same way they do gay guys.
[quote]His wife has a real bazarro background. The baby doctor who delivered her became her lover when she was in college. She assisted her lover's patients who were undergoing abortions.
Why are the press and his Republican rivals afraid to bring this up in the campaigns?
fear of farright
Sanitorium has a Christ complex
What angers me the most about Santorum is not the socially conservative stuff. It's the fact that he and his family, including his sick daughter, receive taxpayer funded health care for life as a former member of Congress and yet he wants to deny that same coverage to most other people.
Because he doesn't see himself as 'most people', R54. And how they rationalize it, anyway, is that it exists 'now', so they'll use it 'now' because they're entitled to it, but they don't want it to be available for future generations. I guess what he wants is his kids and grandchildren to go without.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
