Blame it on Boston
I can't even believe that Rick Santorum actually SAID something this ludicrous! What? So now pedophile priests are victims too?? I'm embarrassed to be from PA.
“It is startling that those in the media and academia appear most disturbed by this aberrant behavior, since they have zealously promoted moral relativism by sanctioning "private" moral matters such as alternative lifestyles. Priests, like all of us, are affected by culture. When the culture is sick, every element in it becomes infected. While it is no excuse for this scandal, it is no surprise that Boston, a seat of academic, political and cultural liberalism in America, lies at the center of the storm.”

Okay, okay, he just compared “alternative lifestyles” to pedophilia. And he said the media and university professors are to blame for encouraging this type of child abuse. This guy is unbelievable. The only thing more unbelievable is that a state like Pennsylvania would even consider re-electing this guy.

    I'm just surprised you are surprised. Santorum and people like him, whatever their political hue, seem to have absorbed at birth the principal of the Big Lie. This works on the basis that if you tell a 'reasonable' lie your opponents will rebut it but if you tell an outrageous lie then your opponents will either be stunned into silence or will have to delve so far back into first principles that they will have lost the public's attention before they actually get to address your untruth.
