You Will Not Believe What Rick Santorum Is Blaming On Same-Sex Marriage Now

America’s Christian Right has been busy blaming Same-sex marriage for everything from extreme weather events, to impending apocalypse.  So it must be hard for them to keep things constantly fresh as they run out of hyperbolic prophesies. But you can always rely on Rick Santorum to mix things up. His latest? Same sex marriage is to blame for single motherhood…Oh and polygamy is coming next.

“What we need to do is reclaim what marriage is,” Santorum told Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly during a radio interview. “If marriage is simply a romantic relationship between two people — and by the way, that’s what it’s devolved to in the minds of a lot of Americans — if that’s all that marriage is then it’s hard to make the argument that any two people, any three or four people shouldn’t be able to get married.”

The interview devolves into a prolonged lament by Santorum and Schlafly on the demise of their personal paradise of family planning.  Schlafly whines that marriage has become “socially optional, particularly in the celebration of single mothers.” “I simple say to the folks who have tried to change the marriage law to allow same-sex couples, they have taken it to the next logical step that you just talked about earlier,” Santorum agreed. “We’ve divorced marriage from childbearing, we’ve divorced marriage from any meaning beyond a romantic relationship.” “We’ve sort of devalued marriage as a result of that,” he added. “And so it’s logical to say, if that’s all that marriage is then anybody should be able to get married. We need to reclaim it.” Of course, neither man bothers to explain how exactly two people of the same sex falling in love and building a marriage together, has any impact whatsoever on any one else’s marriage.  Seriously, show me the straight spouse who upon seeing two gay people marry, marched to their lawyer and started divorce proceedings, and I’ll show you an idiot.
