Log Cabin Denounces Santorum [R-PA] Statements
(WASHINGTON, DC) – The Log Cabin Republicans denounce the alarming statements made by Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA) to the Associated Press. In those remarks Santorum supported sodomy laws in place in Texas and compared homosexuals with polygamists, adulterers and people who commit incest.
"There is nothing conservative about allowing law enforcement officials to enter the home of any American and arrest them for simply being gay. I am deeply troubled that Senator Santorum would divide America in a time of war. Mainstream America is embracing tolerance and inclusion. I am appalled that a member of the United States Senate leadership would advocate dividing Americans with ugly hate filled rhetoric," said Log Cabin Republican executive director Patrick Guerriero.
"The discriminatory remarks made by Senator Santorum clearly do not reflect the compassionate conservatism promised by our President. I thought we were past these type of remarks now that Jesse Helms is no longer in the Senate," said John Partain, president of the Pennsylvania Log Cabin Republicans.
