Santorum off the mark on gay marriage dispute

Former Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum (pictured) commented on the Chick-fil-A restaurant issue during an appearance tonight on Mark Levin’s conservative radio show.

Large groups of demonstrators appeared at many of the chain’s outlets today to support traditional marriage and/or the restaurants’ president’s right to say he does not support gay marriage. That followed the negative reaction to his beliefs expressed originally in The Baptist Press newspaper.

The CEO said “We are very much supportive of the family — the biblical definition of the family unit.”

Santorum told Levin, “Now you’re forced to endorse (gay marriage) to not be a bigot..”

We don’t think people are saying you have to endorse it to not be considered a hater. They’re saying they disagree with his opinion.

Those labeling him a bigot are guilty of misguided disrespect and should be ignored. He did not say he has a problem with homosexuality in that interview or subsequent ones.

The Gay and Lesbian Alliance against Defamation is calling for protests and a kiss-in tomorrow.

Santorum was not careful with his words.
