Santorum: Gay Community Waging Jihad Against Me

Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum is accusing the gay rights community of waging a “jihad” campaign against him for his position that gay marriages should never be legally sanctioned, according to The Hill newspaper.
 
Writing in the paper Monday, blogger Justin Sink said the former Pennsylvania senator made the statement during a campaign stop in Spartanburg, S.C., Friday.
 
So the gay community said, ‘Hes comparing gay sex to incest and polygamy, how dare he do this,’ and they have gone out on a, I would argue, jihad against Rick Santorum since then,” Sink quoted Santorum as saying.
 
Santorum, whose popularity at the moment lags behind other candidates seeking the GOP nomination, has long been opposed to local and state laws recognizing gay marriage – a stance that has prompted tons of criticism from gay rights supporters.

He has also criticized specifically a 2003 Supreme Court Decision – Lawrence v. Texas – striking down sodomy laws, saying it undermines “the fabric of our society.”
 
His position against gay rights has also prompted his critics to associate his surname online with a particular sexual act, an effort that ensures that anyone seeking information on the presidential contender will get much more than expected.
