The FRC & Rick Santorum Roll Into Concord NH To Spread A Frothy Mix Of Lies

Rick “Roll Over Rover” Santorum might not be the choice of the choice of the GOP, but he sure seems to bt the choice and the favorite son of the Tony Perkin’s anti-gay hate group the Family Research Council  as both rolled into Concord, New Hampshire together yesterday to hold a  “Restore Marriage Rally” on the FRC Values Voter Bus Tour to  fight for a repeal gay marriage in the state next year.

Christopher Plante, northeast regional coordinator for the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) is working with the VVBT (Yes NOM works with a HATE GROUP so thus NOM IS A HATE GROUP) said about New Hampshire “We’re going to let bygones be bygones, and we’re going to look in January and say, you’re going to be the first in the nation to legislatively repeal homosexual marriage.” (What a dick)

Santorum told the whopping three dozen people that attended Rick  that one-man, one-woman marriage is the glue that holds together the American family, and families form the nation’s foundation.

“Our country is not founded on the individual,” Santorum said. “It is founded on the basic unit of society, which is the family. You don’t want to found your society on individuals, because that’s like founding a house on grains of sand.”

Tony Perkins who spoke yesterday seemed to be grasping at anything including the nonsensical to make his point:  “You want to get the economy going again? We need to put a focus on marriage and on children, because that is our future.  Look at the GDP (Gross Domestic Product) and growing the GDP – we’ll never grow the GDP with a shrinking population.”

Craig Stowell, co-chairman of an anti-repeal group called Standing Up for New Hampshire Families, pointed to a  University of New Hampshire poll that showed only 29 percent of residents wanted to repeal same-sex marriage and Gov. John Lynch,, has pledged to veto any repeal. That means any measure would need two-thirds support in both chambers to become law.
