Quotes of the Morning: Slipping in Santorum


"Priests, like all of us, are affected by culture. When the culture is sick, every element in it becomes infected. While it is no excuse for this scandal, it is no surprise that Boston, a seat of academic, political and cultural liberalism in America, lies at the center of the storm."
-Catholic Online, July 12, 2002

“Ok.. This was a quote from three years ago, before the full extent of the child abuse scandal in the Catholic Church became evident. Surely he realizes that Boston wasn’t the center of the problem. Surely he’d retract his foolish words.. right?”
-Skippy


"I was just saying that there's an attitude that is very open to sexual freedom that is more predominant"
-Rick Santorum, July 12, 2005

"In a brief interview with the Globe on Tuesday, Santorum reiterated his view that the 'basic liberal attitude' in Boston fostered an environment where sexual abuse of children could occur."
-Boston Globe, July 14, 2005

“Yep. Boston, being liberal, apparently caused priests to molest children. Liberalism is also what caused Karl Rove to lie, exonerated Michael Jackson and causes tooth decay. Liberalism can get into your precious bodily fluids. Sigh.. I think that ‘Plan 9 from Outer Space’ had a more coherent plot than the far right does these days.”
-Skippy


" In this case, what we're talking about, basically, is priests who were having sexual relations with post-pubescent men. We're not talking about priests with 3-year-olds, or 5-year-olds. We're talking about a basic homosexual relationship. Which, again, according to the world view sense is a perfectly fine relationship as long as it's consensual between people. If you view the world that way, and you say that's fine, you would assume that you would see more of it."
-Rick Santorum, on the child molesting scandal in the Catholic church, April 7, 2003

“Um.. Rick? Those ‘post-pubescent men’ were usually in their younger teens. That means that it is still, no matter the sexual orientation of it, statutory rape. I don’t think that anyone outside of NAMBLA would call that a ‘basic homosexual relationship’. As a matter of fact, I’m willing to go out on a limb here and say that pretty much everyone (gay or straight) thinks that these priests were pretty sick puppies. Defending the rights of homosexuals is not even in the same ballpark as defending the rights of child molesters. Ok Senator.. Give me a classic to go out on..”
-Skippy


"Rick Santorum: Every society in the history of man has upheld the institution of marriage as a bond between a man and a woman. Why? Because society is based on one thing: that society is based on the future of the society. And that's what? Children. Monogamous relationships. In every society, the definition of marriage has not ever to my knowledge included homosexuality. That's not to pick on homosexuality. It's not, you know, man on child, man on dog, or whatever the case may be. It is one thing. And when you destroy that you have a dramatic impact on the quality —
AP: I'm sorry, I didn't think I was going to talk about ‘man on dog’ with a United States senator, it's sort of freaking me out."
-Associated Press, April 7, 2003
