Rick Santorum Says Children With A Gay Father Would Be Better Off With A Father In Prison

Rick Santorum continued his crusade against the LGBT community in New Hampshire on Saturday, this time at a college preparatory school in Dublin.

During his appearance, students asked Santorum about his position on same-sex marriage and proceeded to suggest that children would be better off with their dad being in prison than they would with a gay dad.

“You’re robbing children of something that they need, they deserve, they have a right to. They have a right to be known and be loved by their dad or their mom. Marriage is not a right. It’s a privilege that is given to society by society for a reason … We want to encourage what is the best for children. Even fathers in jail who had abandoned their kids were still better than no father at all to have in their children’s lives.”


Basically, Santorum is saying that kids are better off without a dad than they would be if their dad is gay. Does Santorum have any idea how many orphans out there would be overjoyed to be adopted by gay parents? His bigotry is robbing these children of a loving home with parents who can care for them. Perhaps we ought to test Santorum’s theory. He should voluntarily place himself in prison to prove how much better off his kids would be. Just don’t drop the soap, Rick. You might enjoy the result.
