Earlier this week, RealClearReligion posted an interview with Rick Santorum  who was asked what he would say if he ever ran into his arch nemesis Dan Savage.

Frothy’s rather self righteous and snarky answer:

I would tell him that I’m praying for him. He obviously has some serious issues. You look at someone like that who can say and do the things that he’s doing and you just pray for him and hopefully he can find peace.

Mother Jones emailed Dan asking what Savage thought about Santorum’s remarks and issued this statement:

“Rick Santorum thinks that women who have been raped should be compelled—by force of law—to carry the babies of their rapists to term, he thinks birth control should be illegal, he wants to prosecute pornographers, etc., etc., basically the guy wants to be president so that he can micromanage the sex lives of all Americans…and I’m the one with issues? Because I made a dirty joke at his expense eight or nine years ago and it stuck? I’m the one with issues?

“Okaaaaaaaaaaaaaay.

“Rick can pray for me. I’ll gay for him. And we can call it even.”

You can ove him or hate him.  But we’re with Dan Savage all the way.
