Is Rick Santorum Finally Getting Out Of Your Bedrooms And Wishing Your Butt Sex The Best?

Back in 2003 Rick Santorum, then about halfway through his tenure as Pennsylvania’s U.S. senator, argued if the Supreme Court overturned sodomy laws in Lawrence v. Texas, it would mean the court also “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.” But now that he’s thinking about challenging Barack Obama to become emperor of America, it appears his stance might be softening. Writing yesterday in the Des Moines Register, Santorum is making a stab at softening his reputation as the frothy mix of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex.

“Let me first define what we are not talking about,” Santorum writes. “I believe if two adults of the same sex want to have a relationship that is their business. But when they ask society to give that relationship special recognition and privileges, then we should be able to have a rational debate about whether that is good public policy.”

Which means Rick is finally going to put his stamp of approval on your bedroom activities (probably so long as you don’t try rubbing your anal wipes in his face). But not your right to get married, WHICH OTHER PEOPLE WILL TOTALLY KNOW ABOUT.
