Rick Santorum Compares Gay Marriage To Polygamy, Gets Booed By Crowd

Rick Santorum Not Doing Well With College Aged Students

Rick Santorum might want to find a better comparison for gay marriage then polygamy. During an address to a New Hampshire college crowd the GOP presidential hopeful was booed when comparing gay marriage to the practice of wedding several wives.

When a student said she believed everybody had the right to get married Santorum quickly shot back:

“So anyone can marry anybody else?”

He then added:

“So if that’s the case, then everyone can marry several people. So you can be married to five people. Is that OK?”

The conversation then turned towards the use of federal force to stop state laws regarding gay marriage and medical marijuana to which Rick Santorum admitted:

“I don’t know my medical marijuana laws very well.”

Santorum then went on to call drugs a hazard to society and said he learned about their negative effects when he was in “college too” a response that immediately received more boos from the crowd.

As Rick Santorum left his address boos and jeers easily drowned out the sound of applause according to several people in attendance.

Santorum has made his opposition to abortion and gay rights known for a very long time while preaching his close alignment to his religion, while that type of pandering to social conservatives may win him respect in some circles perhaps a college crowd wasn’t the right place to spread his message out outward discuss for various groups.

Do you believe that the GOP’s hard stance against gay marriage, the legalization of medical marijuana and various other issues that the youth vote believes in is hurting their political aspirations?

    The GOPs attitude toward those and many other issues will assure Obama's re election. These people are living in the dark ages, especially as regards Marijuana legalization. Get lost, Savonarola Santorum!

    Santorum constantly voted against the 2nd Amendment but voted repeatedly to give Penn State pedophile Jerry Sandusky the congressional Angels in Adoption award. Newt loves illegals (amnesty) more than Americans (Newt wants to bring back child labor for US kids). Mitt thinks corporations are people (killing his general election chances). Ron Paul is the only candidate with a plan to end the TSA and end the endless wars for Israel, it all started a decade ago after a false flag attack.
    9/11, US and Israel:
