Video: Rick Santorum vs. full spectrum of our natural world

by Jeremy Hooper

Since leaving the Senate, Rick Santorum has made a name for himself on the anti-equality speaking circuit. Here he is with Kevin Smith, head of New Hampshire's chief anti-gay marriage lobby group, and with Maggie Gallagher, the nation's most prominent voice on the opposition side:

Ya know, it's one thing to take on marriage policy. But gunning for the very cores of gay existences by painting us as unnatural and our families as invalid? That's beyond the pale.
