Quote# 86239

And if the Supreme Court says that you have the right to consensual sex within your home, then you have the right to bigamy, you have the right to polygamy, you have the right to incest, you have the right to adultery. You have the right to anything. Does that undermine the fabric of our society? I would argue yes, it does. It all comes from, I would argue, this right to privacy that doesn't exist in my opinion in the United States Constitution, this right that was created, it was created in Griswold — Griswold was the contraceptive case — and abortion. And now we're just extending it out. And the further you extend it out, the more you — this freedom actually intervenes and affects the family. 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.

Every society in the history of man has upheld the institution of marriage as a bond between a man and a woman. Why? Because society is based on one thing: that society is based on the future of the society. And that's what? Children. Monogamous relationships. In every society, the definition of marriage has not ever to my knowledge included homosexuality. That's not to pick on homosexuality. It's not, you know, man on child, man on dog, or whatever the case may be. It is one thing.

Hi, I'm special agent Rick Santorum of the Sex Police. I'm here to inspect your bedroom to make sure you're not having any illegal sex. I need to check your sock drawers for contraband sex toys, and after that I need to inspect your anus to make sure you're not engaging in sodomy. We've gotten a few reports from your neighbors that you may have been engaging in illegal sex positions. You know that the only legal position is missionary. Ah, what do we have here? A box of CONDOMS! Get on the floor, you're under arrest!

This guy is a complete fuckwit.

Also a bunch of societies have gay marriage and don't appear to be any worse off for it.

"And if the Supreme Court says that you have the right to consensual sex within your home, then you have the right to bigamy..." - No, you don't. It's against the law.

"you have the right to polygamy..." - No, you don't. It's against the law (unless you're in Utah).

"You have the right to incest..." - No, you don't. That's also against the law.

"You have the right to anything." - No, you don't. You can't murder, rape, assault, look at child porn, run a meth lab etc, in your own home. You fail.

"this right to privacy that doesn't exist in my opinion in the United States Constitution," - Your opinion is wrong. Privacy is implied in the Constitution through the Fourth Amendment. You fail again.

"Yes, but it destroys the basic unit of our society because it condones behavior that's antithetical to strong healthy families." - No, it doesn't.

"That's not to pick on homosexuality." - Yet, that's exactly what you're doing.

Rick Santorum, you just keep giving me more reasons to never vote Republican.

There are plenty of crazy Santorum stuff he spouted in 2012 alone.

Oh you are such a liar! Even your own damn BIBLE has prominent examples of polygamy. Why do you hate God so much?

And if the Supreme Court says that you have the right to consensual sex within your home, then you have the right to bigamy, you have the right to polygamy, you have the right to incest, you have the right to adultery.

The Supreme Court doesn't say you you have the right to anything. What is says is that the government doesn't have the right to do something.

You have the right to anything.

Basically, yes, within limits. Read the Tenth Amendment. That's what it says. You have the right to anything as long as there isn't a valid law against it. And the rest of the Bill of Rights goes on to limit what the government is allowed to pass laws against.

First of all, bigamy and polygamy have to do with marriage, not consentual sex, and things like adultery are already legal. This seems like yet another one of your policies and ideas that seem to come straight from the middle ages. If you don't believe in a citizens' right to peaceful privacy, then I'm about ready to start praying that the people of this good country have the sense not to elect someone like yourself who seeks for a bedroom nanny state, and I'm not even religious.

BTW, marriage has not always been simply one man one woman. Go back to that polygamy thing you harped about...

Perhaps you should read up on the purpose, typical age, and types of marriages that have existed throughout time and across cultures.

"And if the Supreme Court says that you have the right to consensual sex within your home, then you have the right to bigamy, you have the right to polygamy, you have the right to incest, you have the right to adultery. You have the right to anything."

How right you are.

And that's the problem.

Throw not that stone, (P)Rick, throw not that stone.

So, you're saying that you support non-consensual sex in the home? Frankly, that would not surprise me if you do.

I hope he'll be the presidential candidate for the GOP. He will guarantee Obama's victory - landslide victory! The fundamentalists are loud, but the sane conservatives outnumber them and they don't vote crazy!

Also, even most very conservatives are in favor of birth control, they don't admit it, but they use it!

"And if the Supreme Court says that you have the right to consensual sex within your home, then you have the right to bigamy, you have the right to polygamy, you have the right to incest, you have the right to adultery."

As with many Fundies, you have equated sex with marriage. Bigamy and polygamy are states of marriage. Consenual sex simply involves the manipulation of body parts by consenting adults. Even if those adults are closely related, as long as they consent, it's none of your or my business. And, yes, we do have the right to adultery. It's almost assuredly a bad idea, but it's a condition to be dealt with by the adults involved, not the government or meddling ex-Senetors.

"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."

You conservatards claim to be for individual freedoms, but you are only for individual freedoms you don't want.

Who someone else marries in no way changes your marriage. Your marriage means exactly what it did after Adam marries Steve as it did before. STFU and mind your own business.


"Every society in the history of man has upheld the institution of marriage as a bond between a man and a woman."

While I don't have the evidence at this moment, I'd bet dollars to dead maggots your statement is unresearched twaddle.

And if the Supreme Court says that you have the right to consensual sex within your home,

Um...I believe the Supreme Court already says that's Ok Ricky-boi.

"Because society is based on one thing: that society is based on the future of the society. And that's what? Children."

Really? Just one thing? So all that mutual defense and enrichment stuff is just a load of crap? Build your own appliances and electronic devices and transportation from now on.

I no longer believe that the future of society rests upon "children", when I see the kind of doits you doits are raising. Blow out all the babies you want. If you ever take charge, we're doomed, a-la Idiocracy.

>>Every society in the history of man has upheld the institution of marriage as a bond between a man and a woman.<<

No.

Since Santorum claims to base things on the Bible:
http://www.religioustolerance.org/mar_bibl3.htm
http://www.religioustolerance.org/mar_bibl0.htm

I'd cite my anthropology textbooks, but I suspect that some of the social structures recorded in central New Guinea in the first couple of decades after contact would break his mind.

Regardless, Santorum's Argument Is Invalid.

first sentance, wrong, wrong, wrong and wrong.
second sentance also wrong.

marriage was instituted in particular form for property inheritance where the wife was considered property.

Good ol' Frothy mixture is clearly insane and yet he seems to have no problems getting people to vote for him.

I see Rick is frothing at the mouth again. About the only thing he says here which is true is 'you have the right to adultery'. Maybe Newt clued him in on that.

You have the right to anything.

The distinction between the existence of a victim and the nonexistence of a victim is just too vague and subjective.
