Santorum Linked To Organization Running LGBT Substance-Abuse Center

A conservative blogger at RedState.com has dug up an interesting little tidbit about Rick Santorum’s past: He once served on the board of Universal Health Services, which operates The Pride Institute, a treatment center for LGBT people outside Minneapolis.

Though the recently glitterbombed and longtime Google-bombed candidate left UHS’ board in June—and probably had no clue it ran the Institute, his connection is no small irony. This is the guy who says he wants to dismantle marriage equality and civil unions and bring back sodomy laws, and who compared homosexuality to bestiality.

And people wonder why some gays develop chemical dependency.

Don’t look to the conservatives to shame Santorum for his hypocritical ways, though. Nosiree. The sad-sack blogger at RedState says Fundamentalists ought to give Slick Rick compromised principles a pass:

We shouldn’t, however, hold it against Santorum. Often when principle and paycheck come in conflict, paycheck wins. Principle does not always feed a family. A whole lot of people have the same thing happen.

I totally get it. I mean, there was that one summer I was really desperate for money, so I stumped for NOM. It was a bad time in my life and I’m not proud of it, but I moved on.

Now if you’ll excuse me I have to go exercise my God-given right to get gay-married. BRB.

      Santoum like all GOP/tea party ilk, and many Democrats, will do anything to get ahead in life and politics. Mr. Frothy Mix has ever been weak intellectually and completely without a moral compass. The sooner he fades into his well-deserved obscurity, the better. Until then, we can frighten small children by telling them if they don’t behave, Mr. Frothy Mix will get them!

      His name sounds like a Latin neuter noun. No wonder he is so screwed up about sex – he’s obviously missed out!

      “Oh no! Rick Santorum, who would be elected High Priest of Homophobia if such a position existed, might actually be pro-gay!”
      – Nobody, upon hearing this news.
      Sometimes politicians are hypocrites, but sometimes their devotion to assholeness is so vast that, like a black hole made of bigotry, it devours any possible hypocrisy.
