Santorum: Democratic Party An Orgy Of Sex And Homosexuality Preying On Lust

Post image for Santorum: Democratic Party An Orgy Of Sex And Homosexuality Preying On Lust

Rick Santorum in 2008 participated in a question and answer forum titled “The Press & People of Faith in Politics,” hosted by the Oxford Center for Religion and Public Life. During the forum, Santorum called the Democratic Party the party of sex, a party that preyed on lust, and the party of Woodstock, which he called “the great American orgy.” Santorum also said that it’s impossible to be a liberal and a Christian, and added specifically that Barack Obama, who was then running for President, had “no right to claim” he was a Christian.

At one point, Santorum was fed a statement which included the proposition that “Republican Party is trying to repeal Woodstock.” Santorum replied:

Woodstock is the great American orgy. This is who the Democratic Party has become. They have become the party of Woodstock. The prey upon our most basic primal lusts, and that’s sex. And the whole abortion culture, it’s not about life. It’s about sexual freedom. That’s what it’s about. Homosexuality. It’s about sexual freedom.

All of the things are about sexual freedom, and they hate to be called on them. They try to somehow or other tie this to the Founding Father’s vision of liberty, which is bizarre. It’s ridiculous.

This was not the only ludicrous and extremist statement Santorum made at that symposium. There was also this statement, made in response to how Santorum believes the mainstream media characterizes him:

It comes down to sex. That’s what it’s all about. It comes down to freedom, and it comes down to sex. If you have anything to with any of the sexual issues, and if you are on the wrong side of being able to do all of the sexual freedoms you want, you are a bad guy. And you’re dangerous because you are going to limit my freedom in an area that’s the most central to me. And that’s the way it’s looked at.

And, contrary to what Santorum and his aides were forced to clean up this weekend, Santorum made it clear at this conference that he does not believe Obama or anyone who is a liberal, can be a Christian. For Santorum, it’s all or nothing.

“What is your assessment of Barack Obama’s faith?,” Santorum was asked. His shocking response:

He joined the most popular church in an area of the city where he was going to make his political stand. It had the most reach. It had the most juice. It gave him a platform to be able to go out and use their reach, their power, to help build a base of support for him in that community so he could go and run for office.

He didn’t really much care, in my opinion, what the belief structure was. It was a vehicle. Now, am I saying that he believes everything that Rev. Wright believes? No. But he was willing to tolerate those beliefs for 20 years to achieve a political objective, which was to get him elected.

Could he through that time have become a person of faith and take that faith seriously? I never judge someone’s faith personally. I have no idea whether that he has a personal faith or what that personal faith is. That’s between him and God. I can’t judge any of you on that.

What I can tell you is, objectively, that faith was an avenue for power. It may have ended up in other manifestations, persona or otherwise, but to suggest that his journey was anything other than that, was primarily focused on something other than that, I think is just wrong.

And then later, this:

But is there such thing as a sincere liberal Christian, which says that we basically take this document and re-write it ourselves? Is that really Christian? That’s a bigger question for me. And the answer is, no, it’s not. I don’t think there is such a thing. To take what is plainly written and say that I don’t agree with that, therefore, I don’t have to pay attention to it, means you’re not what you say you are. You’re a liberal something, but you’re not a Christian. That’s sort of how I look at it.

When you go so far afield of that and take what is a salvation story and turn it into a liberation theology story, which is done in the Catholic world as well as in the evangelical world, you have abandoned Christendom, in my opinion. And you don’t have a right to claim it.

Rick "frothy-mix" Santorum sees sex everywhere. I'm not a psychiatrist but I'm pretty-sure there's a name for such an obsession. He needs an intervention.

If Santorum is so obsessed about regulating the sexual proclivities of others, why then is he trying to screw the American public?

That potential lackey figurehead lap-dog of corporate USA and the USA's elite-class ruling masters is a strange fellow!!!

I fear, based upon what little I can observe about the boy, is that he might pose a potential danger to others and/or himself.

I advise the lad to seek out professional assistance of the mental-type.

And as for those wanting to vote for the "confused fellow:" I believe those folks may also be in need of professional mental help of some type.

For the record, I do not advocate the promulgation of any "gay agenda" but do live a "live and let live" lifestyle.

One suggestion for the "gay crowd;" perhaps "toning down" those often obnoxious to too many "gay day/pride" public parades, rallys, etc.

You are NOT garnering "friends" among much of the populace with those affairs.

Little background – the parades are typically just once a year (in various cities, of course) in the summer to celebrate the anniversary of the Stonewall Riots which was the beginning of the modern day gay rights movement in the USA: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stonewall_riots.

He sure likes to overlook things in his little bible, doesn't he. Two points of the book he claims to have read: Thou shall not bear false wittness against thy neighbor and Let he who is sin free, cast the first stone. This man has demonstrated that he is obsessed with gay sex, orgies, and sex with animals. I say this because that's all he ever talks about. I am no longer a Christian, but I apparently read more of the bible than he ever did. Also, I would also like to point out, that he probably is a closeted gay. I should know, because prior to my own coming out, I said stupid bs like this, and I deeply regret it now.

This man has mental issues. Any religious man who is so preoccupied with the discussion of sex and holding himself up as a shining example of what is righteous and calling out other Christians as not being Christians is exactly the type of Christian man my father warned me about years ago. It is the best advice a father can pass along to his daughter; "If a man is pounding the Bible in one hand declaring his righteousness he will most certainly be pounding his P _ _ _ K with the other. I am almost 65 years of age and my father has long since passed on. He was the best example of a Christian man I have ever seen. He taught you the right way solely by example and sometimes letting you learn the hard way if you didn't go by his example. My father's advice has never failed to be accurate. A few times I thought…"No, this time he might be wrong." Ah, time always proved him right. I am waiting Mr. Santorum as you will expose yourself.

I'll bet he has an erection each time he goes on this kind of rant! Guess mommy won't let him have the porn channel!

Of course, the most annoying trait of his is the desire to make the US government become a church. Look, dude, if you think you're a pope, you need to get treated for schizophrenia. Even if he accepted the separation of church and state, the guy still has issues…self-righteousness, suppressed sexual desires, and illogical prejudices. Oh, and also stupidity.

Rick is one twisted sister. Normally, that would be good. But Rick is just too miserable about the
sex and teh gay to not be burrowed in some kind of closet. Poor lunatic.

‎"Princess, the great difference between in this world is not between the rich and the poor or the good and the evil, the biggest of all differences in this world is between the ones that had or have pleasure in love and those that haven’t and hadn’t any pleasure in love, but just watched it with envy, sick envy. The spectators and the performers. I don’t mean just ordinary pleasure or the kind you can buy, I mean great pleasure, and nothing that’s happened to me or to Heavenly since can cancel out the many long nights without sleep when we gave each other such pleasure in love as very few people can look back on in their lives …" — Tennessee Williams.
