Men Kiss at Santorum Rally

Two Men Kiss at Rick Santorum's Weekend Rally

Republican Rick Santorum isn't known for his inclusive stance on gay rights. And last weekend, two men decided to go for romantic protest to the candidate: they kissed at one of Santorum's campaign rallies. In the video above, you can see the passionate make-out. The crowd confusingly responds by chanting "U-S-A," as the men were escorted out.

Perhaps we can expect that same-sex kiss protest to pick up where glitter bombing left off. You may recall glitter bombing is the popular practice of throwing glitter on politicians who hold antigay postions. For a refresher on why Santorum was a target of this gay kiss-in, here are few things Santorum has said about gay issues:

  • "In every society, the definition of marriage has not ever to my knowledge included homosexuality. That's not to pick on homosexuality. [Marriage] is not, you know, man on child, man on dog, or whatever the case may be. It is one thing."
  • "Is anyone saying same-sex couples can't love each other? I love my children. I love my friends, my brother. Heck, I even love my mother-in-law. Should we call these relationships marriage, too?"
  • Gay marriage "threatens my marriage. It threatens all marriages. It threatens the traditional values of this country."
  • "I have no problem with homosexuality. I have a problem with homosexual acts. As I would with acts of other, what I would consider to be, acts outside of traditional heterosexual relationships."
  • "You say, 'well, it's my individual freedom.' Yes, but it destroys the basic unit of our society because it condones behavior that's antithetical to strong healthy families. Whether it's polygamy, whether it's adultery, where it's sodomy, all of those things, are antithetical to a healthy, stable, traditional family."

What do you make of the kiss protest?
