Comments on: Santorum: backer’s contraceptives comment was bad joke http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2012/02/17/santorum-backers-contraceptives-comment-was-bad-joke/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: looploop http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2012/02/17/santorum-backers-contraceptives-comment-was-bad-joke/comment-page-1/#comment-423240 Sun, 19 Feb 2012 02:52:56 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/?p=39430#comment-423240 I don’t know what is more scary. The fact that Santorum is running for president or the fact that he actually won 3 states so far.

Back in the 1960s when I was in public high school in Atlanta my eighth grade class had 3 girls (one had been to Catholic private elementary school) had to leave in order to complete their pregnancy, while at least 5 others were able to stay at school since they arranged a “little operation”. All bible thumping, Christian church goers.

So back in my days women bore the consequences of sex, and the guys just kept on with their antics.

This is the environment Santorum and his supporters want to bring back: unwanted pregnancies, teenage mothers, etc. Why? Because it says it in the Bible somewhere. Did they forget that it also says in the Bible “harder for a camel to pass through an eye of a needle that the rich to enter heaven”.

I watched the interview and he never indicated it was a joke. When the interviewer said I really don’t know how to respond he never said it was a joke. Friess flat out is lying!

If it truely was a bad joke it would be easy to say ‘i’m sorry’. His social view points are rooted in Middle Aged thought processes.
