    Santorum claimed to quote an anti-poverty expert while explaining his case.

    "He found that even fathers in jail who had abandoned their kids were still better than no father at all to have in their children's lives," Santorum told voters about the researcher, according to the Times.

    Someone once told me that Santorum said gays caused the "Holocaust". Is that true?

    Why all the hate?

    Does anyone believe this guy has gay friends?

    The concept of Santorum having gay friends is no more unbelievable that the concept of you having any friends whatsoever. I may struggle with either concept, but it is likely that both are true.

    I do believe Sancto has made his position clear. His 100 million family research REVEALED this to him. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm..............below Newt? Tough choice......................

    rdean? He is running for the REPUBLICAN nomination. Such absurd remarks are REQUIRED; except for Paul, who seems to have joined in, oddly enough. And to throw a wrench in, I know some parents who did go to prison, and did all that was possible to remain PARENTS.

    Where is he saying anything about gay parents being worse than having convict parents? He said "no father", not "gay father".

    Here is the original news article:
    Rick Santorum focuses on gay marriage - Los Angeles Times

    That sentence doesn't even make any grammatical sense!

    It is also two months old.

    There is no quote from Santorum saying having a convict father is better than having a gay father. He is quoted as saying having a convict father is better than having NO father.

    I think the writer of the article may have been smoking some reefer.
