Santorum Blames The 'Intolerant Liberal Mind' For The Boy Scouts Reconsidering Its Stance On Gays

Former presidential candidate Rick Santorum has long spoken out against gay rights, a moral standpoint he believes must apply to the Boy Scouts of America.

Santorum came out with a statement after the Boy Scouts of America executive board announced it would reconsider the controversial national ban on gay membership it agreed upon seven months ago, according to CBS News.

“hen I saw that the Boy Scouts of America executive board is convening on Wednesday to discuss abandoning the organization’s founding moral principles that nurture boys into men, I was saddened, but not surprised,” he stated in a column Monday on the conservative site WorldNetDaily.

Santorum said he believes the Boy Scouts are reconsidering its stance due to pressure from popular culture and "the intolerant liberal mind."

Hey Rickie,

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

4. Santorum says that liberals have no tolerance for intolerant bigots

add: he was not a presidential candidate ........ he was a loser for the republican nomination
makes him a loser the same as newt, perry, paul, bachmann, and all the others

6. As a Lib I do find it hard to tolerate intolerance.

Tolerance isn't the end. It is just a stepping stone to acceptance.

9. When I try to understand a mind like that of Rick Santorum, I feel as though

I am gazing into the whirling vortex of a black hole. It makes me want to stand back, w-a-a-a-y back.

14. It's not even worth it

Attempting to understand a mind like Santorum's is an exercise in futility

11. For him and his target audience

it's all about them. They can be as intolerant and oppressive as they want and expect the state to reinforce their worldview, but when anyone effectively challenges their intolerant, oppressive bigotry, they start that they're the ones being oppressed.

Boo fucking hoo
