Just As I Thought

Santorum backs nullifying existing gay marriages

There are 18,000 married gay and lesbian couples in California and at least 131,000 nationwide according to the 2010 census, conducted before New York state legalized same-sex marriage in July. Rick Santorum says he’ll try to unmarry all of them if he’s elected president.

Rick Santorum says he’ll try to unmarry all of them if he’s elected president.

Once the U.S. Constitution is amended to prohibit same-gender marriages, “their marriage would be invalid,” the former Pennsylvania senator said Dec. 30 in an NBC News interview.

"We cant have 50 different marriage laws in this country," he said. "You have to have one marriage law."

How interesting that the official Republican line is “marriage is a state issue” while their freaky fun die lover boy’s policy is “You have to have one marriage law.” Of course, we know that this has been the Republican feeling all along, but they figured they could divide and conquer. Turns out that the states are moving ahead with marriage equality at a faster and faster rate and they’re losing this culture war. You won’t hear “it’s a states’ rights issue” any more, I’m betting.

Meanwhile, I just can’t believe that a “major” candidate for the presidency of the United States in 2012 is running on a platform of stripping rights and status from Americans. Can you imagine if someone ran for office promising to nullify your marriage? Seriously? What the f-ing hell is happening in this country?
