Rick Santorum has been boasting recently that his prediction of legal man-dog and adult-child marriages has come true with the Supreme Court’s decision last month to strike down bans on same-sex marriage, making the case once again last week on Family Research Council President Tony Perkins’ “Washington Watch” program.
Santorum told Perkins that the recent marriage decision was “an inevitability” because of Roe v. Wade.
“Roe v. Wade is the cancer that is eating away at the body of American freedom and we’re turning into this oligarchy of judges who can impose their will on the American public,” Santorum said. “This is so troubling on so many levels. You have the abuse of the court and really robbing us of our republic. You have the abuse of the First Amendment and imposing their religious doctrine — You can say, ‘What do you mean, religious?’ Their sexual orthodoxy, let’s call it that, their morality — on the rest of this country and the destructive element of that. And then finally the destructive element being the impact on the nuclear family. I’ve been warning about all of these things and they’ve all come together in this one suit.”
Santorum went on to chide fellow Republicans who want to “move on” following the court’s ruling: “What is it about losing our republic, losing our First Amendment and losing the family that’s not worth fighting about?”
Perkins agreed with the former senator’s dire assessment, adding that “you cannot move on from something that is at the very core of who we are as a nation and without it we cease to exist, we will not be a nation.”
Santorum similarly told the National Right to Life Committee that Roe v. Wade is “the cancer that is infecting the body of America.”
