  Rick Santorum - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Santorum is a Republican who currently is chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, the number three job in the party leadership of the Senate.
Santorum and John Kerry (D-MA) are the lead sponsors of the Workplace Religious Freedom Act (WRFA), which would require employers to accommodate the religious observances of their employees as long as providing such accommodations would not impose an "undue hardship" upon the employer.
Santorum said that he was being targeted by the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, which he said coordinated with the media to publicize Kennedy's speech.

 Santorum Defends His Undefensable Support for Specter
When Senator Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) --- an articulate, courageous defender of the unborn --- endorsed and campaigned for the pro-abortion, anti-life Senator Arlen Specter (R-Pa.) against the pro-life Rep. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) in the GOP primary, many pro-lifers were puzzled and outraged.
Santorum says that as a “Republican leader” he has a responsibility to support incumbent senators generally, and Specter specifically.
Santorum also says that “clearly a pro-life Republican majority that includes Senator Specter” is better than Specter’s totally pro-choice Democrat opponent.

 Rick Santorum   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
In 1990, at the age of 32, Senator Santorum was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives and made his mark in Congress as a champion of government accountability and welfare reform.
Currently, in the 109th Congress, Senator Santorum serves on the Senate Agriculture Committee; the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs; the Senate Committee on Rules and Administration; the Senate Special Committee on Aging; and the Senate Finance Committee, of which he is the Chairman of the Subcommittee on Social Security and Family Policy.
While Senator Santorum is proud of his accomplishments as a lawmaker and public servant, he is most proud of his role as a husband and father.

 Stanley Kurtz on Senator Rick Santorum & Sodomy & Homosexuality on National Review Online
Santorum is obviously concerned that, if the Supreme Court rules that the state has no right to regulate sexuality in the case of sodomy, a court might someday deny the state the right to regulate even incest.
In the case of Santorum's remarks, this litany of unfounded Democratic objections to the presence of traditional Christians in government is at least as relevant as Sheryl Gay Stolberg's litany of Republican insults to gays — indeed, more relevant.
And Sen. Santorum's acceptance of a homosexual orientation, combined with doubts about the act itself, is just a classic statement of "loving the sinner but hating the sin." I don't happen to share that view, but it is ludicrous to claim that holding it should disqualify a man from high office.

 Santorum school flap continues - PittsburghLIVE.com
Santorum issued a statement late that night saying he had decided to pull his children from the online school and home-school them instead after being told by district officials that "only children who live in a community on a full-time basis" are eligible for the tuition money.
Santorum bought his home at 111 Stephens Lane in Penn Hills in 1997, but spends much of his time with his family at his home in Leesburg, Va., just outside the capital, an arrangement he says is in keeping with the demands of his job and his duties as a husband and father.
Santorum's niece and nephew, Bart and Alyssa DeLuca, live in his Penn Hills home when he and his family are out of town.

Moreover, Santorum is also concerned that since the "right to privacy" is a federal "right" it usurps the authority of the states to set their own parameters in these matters.
Santorum is simply affirming the belief of many Christians, disapproving of homosexual behavior, but striving to love the people committing those acts.
Those criticizing Senator Santorum for being forthright about his deeply held religious convictions and those unwilling to demonstrate the courage of their faith by defending him are the ones who should be apologizing, not Senator Santorum.

 Editorial: Santorum, R-Va. / Is the senator an 'inhabitant' of Pennsylvania?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Five Santorum children have been home-schooled at their house in Leesburg, Va., through the Pennsylvania Cyber Charter School, an education paid for by the Penn Hills district to the tune of $38,000 a year, until it became apparent recently that they don't live in Penn Hills.
In his initial House race against Rep. Doug Walgren in 1990, challenger Santorum attacked the incumbent from Mt. Lebanon for buying a house and raising his children in McLean, Va. Now Rick Santorum of Leesburg, Va., is saying that he is and he isn't a resident of Pennsylvania.
By rights, the Santorums should pay back to Penn Hills the cost of the education provided by local taxpayers for their out-of-state children.

 Santorum Before the Inquisition
As of this writing, Santorum is still being lashed with curses of "bigot" and "homophobe," as he tries to explain himself.
In the legal opinion, Santorum is saying that if the court overturns the Texas anti-sodomy law, and declares that a right to privacy protects all consensual sexual activity by adults, then all other laws that outlaw consensual sex – laws against incest, adultery and bigamy – also go out the window.
The savaging of Santorum shows that a bold expression of belief in the old Christian moral code and its proscriptions – i.e., that homosexuality is unnatural and immoral, ruinous to body and soul, a mark of a decadent society – is now forbidden.

 Santorum
The Santorum legislation would strengthen the hand of police officers who want to pick and choose who they will protect, and emergency health care workers and mental health counselors who could abandon patients because their care conflicts with the worker's religious beliefs -- or simply because the patient is gay or lesbian.
Santorum admitted that a conservative Republican might not be an obvious choice for speaker at an institution that claims to be the oldest historically fl college in the nation.
Santorum has appeared in a play (see the next letter), and we know from an earlier letter that the santorum might be heard in a re-make of Dawn of the Dead.

 Sen. Symbol, R-Pa. - Rick Santorum's pathetic grandstanding. By Jacob Weisberg   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Rick Santorum, the pudgy-faced freshman senator from Pennsylvania, is a hero among social conservatives this week for producing a big majority vote in favor of his proposed ban on partial-birth abortions.
Daschle's alternative would have gone far beyond what Santorum has proposed, banning abortions by any method once a fetus is "viable." The point of viability is now as early as 22 weeks into a pregnancy (and seems likely to be stalled there absent some huge scientific breakthrough--see Slate's "Gist").
After he was elected to the House in 1990, Santorum became the leader of the so-called "Group of Seven," a clique that prefigured the Gingrich class of 1994.

Santorum, R-Pennsylvania, was questioned about his comments at a town hall meeting by a 23-year-old man who identified himself as "a proud, gay Pennsylvanian" and said he was offended by the remarks -- part of an interview with The Associated Press -- in which Santorum appeared to compare homosexuality to incest, bigamy and adultery.
Santorum, a lawyer, said that was not an expression of intolerance.
Santorum has stood by his comments, saying they should be viewed in the context of the Supreme Court case.

Santorum did not say, as the AP had it, "the right to (gay) consensual sex within your home," and it's clear he didn't mean it either.
Santorum is clear in his remarks that he neither believes that the Constitution protects such privacy; and that he would support laws that would criminalize many private consensual sexual acts.
Or, in Santorum's world, the cops could enter someone's house to see whether a man was having sex with two women or more than two women on a continuous basis (that would be private "bigamy" or "polygamy").

 Pundits Say Santorum Will Survive
The recent outrage over Santorum’s comments isn’t the first time that activists have taken to the street to lambaste his views on homosexuality.
Santorum said in an interview with the Associated Press last week that he believed states had a right to ban gay sex or other private behaviors that were “antithetical to a healthy, stable, traditional family.”
Santorum spokeswoman Erica Clayton Wright said the lawmaker’s comments were “were specific” to a pending U.S. Supreme Court case over a Texas sodomy law.

 Santorum's Sins, by Justin Raimondo
We had to listen to this nonsense all last week, but we haven't heard very much about Santorum's proposed amendment to Title IX of the Higher Education Act that would enshrine "ideological diversity" as well as "sexual equality" in education as a condition for federal funding.
Yet this is the most unbelievably sleazy, underhanded stealth operation launched by Israel's amen corner since the attack on the U.S.S. Liberty, as the point is to ensure that universities that engage in or permit criticism of Israel face cuts in federal funding.
Santorum must be stopped, but we need to go beyond mere defensive measures: the neocons will only come up with yet another government-based scheme to tilt the playing field in their direction.

 Santorum Urges DeLay to Answer Critics (washingtonpost.com)
Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.), one of Capitol Hill's leading conservatives, warned House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Tex.) yesterday that he needs to "lay out what he did and why he did it" if he is going to put an end to questions about his travel and dealings with lobbyists.
Santorum, who has been moderating some of his stands as he gears up for a tough reelection race next year, was asked on ABC's "This Week" about questions about family members on the payroll of DeLay's political action committee and about the financing of the majority leader's travel.
Santorum added that DeLay "still has very strong support within his ranks, and he is very effective in leading the House -- and that, to date, has not been compromised."

Santorum has refused to apologize for his repugnant remarks, calling his comments “a legitimate public policy discussion.” Gay-bashing is not a legitimate public policy discussion; it is immoral.
Rick Santorum’s failure to recognize that attacking people because of who they are is morally wrong makes him unfit for a leadership position in the United States Senate.

He was merely echoing the concerns of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Byron White in the 1986 case Bowers vs. Hardwick, involving the constitutionality of a Georgia sodomy statute.

Those criticizing Sen. Santorum for being forthright about his deeply held religious convictions and those unwilling to demonstrate the courage of their faith by defending him are the ones who should be apologizing, not Sen. Santorum.
