Santorum Spews: Gay Marriage Tanked the Economy

Posted by Dan Savage on Wed, Aug 17, 2011 at 2:43 PM

It wasn't our economic policies, it wasn't the housing bubble, it wasn't unfunded wars, it wasn't greedy banksters, it wasn't tax breaks for billionaires. It was homos:

"Letting the family break down and in fact encouraging it and inciting more breakdown through this whole redefinition of marriage debate, and not supporting strong nuclear families and not supporting and standing up for the dignity of human life. Those lead to a society that’s broken.... If you think that we can be a society that [that] disregards the family and the important role it plays, and doesn’t teach moral values and the important role of faith in the public square, and then expect people to be good, decent and moral when they behave economically, if you look at the root cause of the economic problems that we’re dealing with on Wall Street and Main Street I might add, from 2008, they were huge moral failings."

In a related development: "rick" redefined.
